Grocery list and waiting room chair
On Sunday I browsed through Sabrina Ward Harrison's Spilling Open and was reminded how much I like some of her handwriting styles. I had just a few minutes before leaving for church and I was needing to write a grocery list, so I decided to try out her style. Somehow I got so engrossed in the letter forms that I mixed up red and black.
On Monday I went to the doctor to get my cholesterol checked. It took longer than I was expecting, so out came my pen and the only paper I could find a Wal-mart receipt and I sketched the chair across from me. Ten minutes of impatience was turned into ten minutes of enjoyable sketching. I must remember to put some more paper into my purse.
I'm still getting lots of mileage from my bill envelopes. The 25 and the grid paper behind the chair are from one of my favorites.
The righ-hand page was done on an advertising circular from the Netherlands. I sewed several pages of it into this journal.
