Oh man when it rains it pours. ALL OF A SUDDEN I have three journals I am currently working on with all kinds of other stuff rumbling around in my head!
One of the journals I'm working on is a gift for a bestie friend of mine, Heidi.
At the end of this month, Heidi is retiring from our mutual employer. I've known her pretty much the whole time I've worked at my company...18 years! When she retires, Heidi will be moving (oh there will be so many tears!) to the bay area to be a full-time grandma. Heidi has always has been a huge source of encouragement with my art. When I finish a journal, she is often one of the first people I can't wait to share it with.
I decided that as a retirement gift, I wanted to make Heidi a journal to document her new grandma adventures. She doesn't frequent my blog often (at least I don't think!) so I'm okay showing a few pics here. I just have a few pages done but this will give you the flavor of the journal...pink!!! Is that a flavor?
This journal really should be my priority since I want to present it Heidi in just a few weeks. However, I will be torn because I am full on loving and hip deep working on my souvenir journal from my trip to Baltimore in April 2011 (can you say behind?) when a couple of friends and I traveled to visit our buddy, Hope.
And then if that wasn't enough, I just realized I will NEED a journal to capture the memories that my sister, Renee, and I are going to make when she comes to visit me and the fam in early July! I started working on that one but then had a little talk with myself and pushed the Baltimore and Renee journals aside. I have to be disciplined and keep sitting myself down and work on that big pile of pink! :-)
