Mine is finished and I'm quite pleased with it. I won't be sending it until Monday though, as we have Postal Strikes and I'm worried that it will go missing as the Post Office guarantees nothing!!!

I can't wait to see everyone else's moleys :)

Want a sneaky peak? Ooooh go on then!

My Moleskine is Meandering!!!!

I just needed to let you know that I have sent my Moly on to Anna today. I enclosed a little book mark for each of you in the back pocket. Take one if you would like. The post office wanted to know if I wanted to insure it. How do you place a value on something like this? I hadn't thought of that until I was faced with putting a monetary value on this little $11.50 book after everyone has painted in it.  Please sign in on the front signature page and sign your artwork too.  OK?

Anna, I have enclosed a little something extra in the envelope for you. I hope you like it. When I was making it I thought of how kind you have been to me in the last year and so there is a lot of love built into it.

Gemma, you need to let me know when you get home from your trip so we can get started on our exchange.

Everyone please keep good thoughts for my Meandering Moleskin while it travels to Spain.

In the begining...

Hello to you all,
Well this is hard i must admit starting off your journal with a topic that ou hope everyone will enjoy and be able to submit to so i sat and thought, i twiddled my thumbs and the i thought some more and some more when.........Ting! an i dea popped into my head, an idea that everyone will be able to submit and become involved in because it relates to everyone it is
(what home means to you, your idea of home and what things remind you of home)
It diesnt have to be a house or in the same country as you or even your own home its just hat ever gives you hope and brings you comfort your home for your body and mind.
Ahhhh im so relieved i have come up with an idea i just now need to get down and dirty and begin creating my pages ready to send on.
Hope evryone is good?
sending love n hugs to you all

I did it!

It's been really hard, sitting facing those blank pages and finding the nerve to put down some marks. But I have and so far have resisted the urge to rub out my sketches. I've deliberately put the book down for the weekend and will take a quiet moment tomorrow to work on it.

My theme is Fantasy and Dream, so that should open it up for people to be as real or abstract as they like.

How is everyone else doing?

Creative procrastination

I finally did it! I have thought of a theme and title for my journal.

Friendships and Art
Friends Creating Art
Paint, pen and pencil

I awoke this morning with the image in my head for the first 6 portions of my fold out journal. Virtual image is always easier than actual image.
So now the creative procrastination part is over and the get it done part begins.

I hope my theme makes it easy for all of you to paint something in my book. I truly just want the art you love to create.
How has everyone been doing?  Are you creating?
