Gardening on my mind

Art Journal July 3, 2008

I always think I will do lots of journaling and sewing in the summer and somehow it never really happens. Lately I've had gardening on my mind and when I'm not thinking about that, the addition we are building is there to occupy me.

Dogs I have known

I have managed to do a few pages. I also got my copy of Dawn Sokol's 1,000 Art Journal Pages with my pages inside. I was thrilled to see them there and am enjoying looking at everyone else's
pages.

Blackberries

I got up this morning and went out and picked a few blackberries. These are growing on the edge of the yard. We've nearly finished eating them already. I need to decide if I want to go look for more bushes on the farm. We've had an unusually rainy summer and there should be lots.

These are wonderfully done pages, Dawn!!! I love their colors, composition and of course, the written word!! WELL DONE!!!! (and I so agree -- summer plans smacks against summer reality -- sigh!

Thank you so much for your advice (on Bronwyn's blog). I've recently started with my first journal - based on Keri Smith's 100 ideas project. I am so blown away by your blogs! I took a little peek in each of them - I especially love the postcards and altered dictionary - also the white book. Your Banks of Bay Creek is going on my favourites list for inspiration!

Thanks, back at you for coming here and looking. I'll try to do a better job of blogging more frequently.
