And there was never a truer word spoken, as no sooner had I signed on the dotted line, the first posting date was announced, eight days away. Eight days???!! I usually spend a month on and off getting a new book ready, plus I already had a few existing deadlines to hit before the end of the month.
I panicked accordingly and the host was kind enough to put the start date back five more days to Feb 1st, but I still couldn't quite hit it, finally finishing up today, ready for posting tomorrow, the 4th. I hate missing deadlines, grrrrr :(
But it's all done now, hooray :) :) :) So here's my journal - it's an accordion book with 7"x7" watercolour paper pages held together with washi tape - the whole thing closing up with a ribbon
The front cover is a simple watercolour painting with some colourful cardboard letters that I've had for yonks and can't remember what make they are, and little washi tape pennants stapled on.
The theme of my book is 'what's on your bucket list?' - here are the instructions for those taking part:
In short, I've asked people to list ten life experiences they would like to achieve in their lifetime, on the back of their page, and then to choose one of the ten and create their main journal page about it - in the style of a travel journal
Here's my list and sign in tag:
Can you spot mini me in the basket? :)
And that's about it for my book so far, other than an "outtro" page at the end:
And now I send it off out on its travels, and I can't wait to see it come back to me full of everyone's goals and dreams....
