I Know Its October.....

and this project should have been finished in September. Things have been a bit crazy around here though and once again life has gotten in the way of creativity. I've been snatching bits of time here and there to try to catch up with as many pages as I can. Thankfully they don't actually take too long to put together (the size (6x6) and using the sketches makes them pretty quick) but I've still only made it up to Sept 20th!! There are the pages from 10th Sept through to 17th.









I'm not even bothering with beating myself up about not completing this in the month. I'm just going to keep chipping away at it when I have a few moments. If it takes me till the end of November, then so be it!

There is another project looming on the horizon that I'm particularly excited about. After reading this post over at the Vicious Chicken last week, I knew I just had to get a copy of this book. One of my major problems with ever keeping a journal or art journal is worrying that I'm going to "ruin it" somehow. Clearly ridiculous, but I can never quit get past that perfectionist hurdle. I've ordered a copy of the book and it should be here early this week. I can't wait for it to arrive so I can get started with it. Sounds like great fun.

Ah well, lots of student records to update today. The deep, deep joy of data entry!

Oooh, you're gonna love the wrecking journal! I got it for just the same sort of reasons - always afraid of 'wrecking' stuff by not doing it well enough or somesuch - and this little journal is just *so* cathartic, it's unbelievable :o)

It is a bit scary in parts though. Don't say I didn't warn you ;o)

Happy journal-wrecking! I will watch with interest to see how yours turns out...
