Spending a little time here and there working on the journal I made a few days ago.

the hair cut...

Before I cut my own hair...practice, practice, practice!  My husband is bowled over by my never ending talents - he's such a good sport!

Stay Safe at Home...

I love making my own books and journals.  I've been thinking about making one strictly for the Coronavirus pandemic and finally got around to it.

Journal made from one single Trader Joe's paper grocery bag.  (Painted bottom of the grocery bag  glued to leftover cereal box cardboard cut to size to make journal cover)

cut bag open; remove handles and bottom of bag

acrylic paints

after paint dried a layer of clear acrylic gesso added

cut the painted paper in half

mountain and valley folds

glue pages together

 painted bottom of bag to be used for cover

after gluing all the pages together and adding cover, insert wax paper between pages and let completely dry overnight

The title words were ripped from the newspaper and glued in place

Pumping Iron...

I keep telling my husband that just be cause he's stuck in the house doesn't mean he can't get exercise.  Here he is pumping iron!

We'll Show You Ours...if

It took me over 2 hours to make our face masks using directions for a 20 minute mask on YouTube!  (You'd think after spending that much time making these masks, I could have made mine large enough to cover my wrinkles!!)

Okay - we've shown you ours...now you show us yours!   Stay safe everyone.
