Some of the things I’ve been working on since completing the A to Z Challenge last month have been:
Making some cards for my Etsy Shop: I made and listed 8 new cards, from Happy Birthday to Thanks, Love and Friendship cards. All come with matching envelopes.
I’ve been keeping up with my 365 pictures too. Here are a few of my favorites:
Everyone knows about my love of the moon. Full moon is tomorrow night!
Started Book #9 in my Reading Challenge. I have taken a couple of online classes with Susannah Conway but had not read her book. It is great.
This is what the inside of the 365 picture album looks like. I am adding a bit of a story to each one along with some page decorations.
This cute cactus village is in the yard of a neighbor’s house. I want to do something like this in our yard. No maintenance and so cute with lots of little houses and other statues.
A reminder that dreaming to the moon is not going to completely get me where I want to go. I have to do some of the work myself!
And the last big project is to take the book I read on Al Jolson and turn it into a junk journal to hold all my favorite quotes. I am really excited about how it is turning out so far:
I took out some pages from the book to make it easier to add my collection of papers and things.
This is where I inserted the junk journal that I started making in March.
I added this woman walking down the hallway in this picture.
There is room here for me to write my favorite quotes.
I used the title of the chapter on this page, “There’s a rainbow ’round the corner” and then painted a rainbow on the top with watercolor crayons.
This is the inside back cover with a pocket to add cards and things.
So, that plus doing my regular work has kept me pretty busy. I think I’ll take a little break now and work on one of the letters I had to skip in my concert album.
What do you think of my projects? Got anything you are spending your time on now that the A to Z is over?
