* Two more little journals

The MESS at the bottom of the page is the fault of GOOGLE CHROME.  How I wish they would get their SHIT TOGETHER!  I have more trouble with blogger using this program - unbelievable!
I'm publishing anyway, 'cause I can't seem to fix it.  oxoxoxoxox Donna  ps:  just keep scrolling DOWN and DOWN and you can still leave a comment.  :o)

Digging around in my stash, I keep finding little covers and books and of course ideas begin to whir in my head. Today I cleaned the studio. It was spotless. HONEST! Tonight? Not so much. I had to step over things on the floor to leave my table, the garbage is overflowing, I can't see the top of my table, and YES ... I left it. Just. The. Way. It. Was. I'm to tired to do it all over again tonight. It shall wait for me, I just know it. Here's the two small albums I made today. One is a "Write and Sketch", with writing paper, and a heavy paper that will take whatever you'd like to throw at it. The other turned out to be a little Mexican keepsake journal, with little
gifts tucked inside.

Write and Sketch

Front Cover.  I wanted the colours of the Mexican flag in the ribbon.  Didn't have any green but found some green metal roses which served the purpose.
The inside cover has two little gifts.  The one in the pocket is a very small traditional bark painting, the other side, one of my postcards.
Further on I made another cover and filled it with miniature paper cuts.
A Mexican tin heart.
The inside back cover is a twenty peso play note and the flag.
The back cover, just a three Mexican cards for colour.
That's it for today.  It's nearly 7:00 pm and I'm going to stop.  What are you up to at 7:00 pm in the evening?  Thanks for dropping in.  Thanks for all your jaw dropping comments - they really do inspire me.
