I don't have much exciting news to share with you today. I've actually been feeling a little emotionally off kilter, which I am told is perfectly normal after surgery. It is somewhat disconcerting though. Allyson is coming back for a few visits to put things right and give me some much needed TLC. She came for a couple of hours today, went grocery shopping and left me with some wonderful made from scratch polenta, fresh chicken salad, pita bread, and made from scratch vegetable broth.
I did make an attempt to create in the studio, but to no avail. A while ago, I attempted to make a hand made journal with chip board covers. It was raining that day and I used some glue made in Mexico which is suspect. Too much water in it I think.
Anyway, the entire project turned into a bit of a disaster. When I punched the holes for binding with the all, the paper sort of shreaded, the holes got distorted and the binding looks terrible. When I made the covers, I used the suspect glue, which left the covers warped even though I left it sitting over night under heavy books. Ah well. It was going to be part of the giveaway, however I have shelved it for private use at a later date. At the time, I liked my choice of paper. When it was finished, I wondered what I had been thinking. It was one of those projects you just want to finish and move on from. So I did.
I'll show you the photographs though.
That's it for today. Perhaps my muse will show up a little later and we can play. Thanks for all your help. You are such very lovely ladies and I am honoured to have you in my life. xxoo Donna
