I would like to thank Cottonwood Arts for sponsoring this Blog Hop, stop by and give them a look see
I think the following is my all time favorite project I have ever done. It is called a Circle Journal. What you do is make a journal and use as many pages as need. You put the instructions on the front page, as shown in the second picture. The first picture is the cover.
Then you send it to everyone you want to add to it, in this case, it was all my brothers and sisters. I think this made its way all over the U.S. LOL Everyone was dedicated so many pages and the theme for ours was "What are your fondest memories growing up" then everyone was to write (in their own handwriting) what they liked and to also add pictures.
The first one above is the one I made (first page of my pages) the second picture is of a sister we lost at the age of 33, so we all put a good memory of her also.
The last page is pockets with a tag inside and everyone was to write their names, address, and the date they received it. This took almost a year to get back to me. We made it for my mother on Mothers day. She LOVED it! Everyone came home for that day because her birthday is the same month (the same day on some years) and they were all so excited to read it and see what everyone else had written. They all agreed it was so much fun to do. Altho, some of them did NOT follow directions completely. LOL They were to decorate their own pages themselves. They just thought I would do it for them.......Now how, when they already had everything written and pictures attached?? Oh well, it turned out great. The following picture is the back cover.
If you have never done a Circle Journal, read up on how you do one, they are so much fun and your family, friends or whomever you choose, will love it. I am thinking about starting another one this year. Thats all for me today, Have a wonderful day, it's the only one you get!
