Journal Therapy

Hello lovely people! It’s been a busy month. Hubby went to Germany (business stuff again) and he will be away for two years! I am trying to keep a happy face but it’s not easy. I miss him. He will come home for Christmas, but until then Meda and I will be home alone. I also discovered a small growth on Meda’s shoulder, and since he had a cancerous growth removed from almost the same spot several years ago, I am terrified! The only thing I can do is wait and see if that thing is growing, and to hope that it’s not cancer again but maybe just some fatty tissue or something like that.

Luckily, I have my journals to help me stay sane (or at least close to that). My diary is filled (after one year),

and now I started writing in my junk journal.

It’s fun to write in, with all those different colors and textures and different page sizes.

I also played with some of my homemade stamps.

And started working in a new journal, the biggest one so far, A4 size. It’s actually an altered book in which I glue things down. It all started with wonderful magazine pages that I didn’t want to cut. I wanted the whole picture to be seen so this journal is perfect for that.

Some of the pages will stay the way they are now and some will have things added to them. It’s so great to have a nice base to work on later.

I also used some of the papers that I used to clean the brushes on, and made quick and fun pages.

I have too many journals, I know. But there is no law against that, right? 🙂
