There's No Place Like Home

I made these pages for a circle journal with a home theme. My house is my favorite place to be in the world. I love to travel, but there is nothing like coming back to my own home and sleeping in my own bed. I like how this turned out, I might have to make something similar for me to keep. I love working in circle journals, and doing swaps. I like the challenge of a theme, and usually end up doing something I'd never have come up with on my own. I'm a bit bummed this CJ project is over, but it also means that I get my journal back next month!

Lucky Me

I am a bit Irish, about 1/4, my paternal Grandmother came to America in 1913. So, I tend to make something for St. Patrick's Day, and this is what I came up with this year. The scan of the ATC is a bit blurry due to the thickness of the flowers, but you get the idea. I already know what I want to send next year- I found a rubber stamp of a prayer that my grandmother had hanging on the wall. I remember it was right inside the door, embroidered and framed. It said: May those who love us, love us; and those who don't love us, may God turn their hearts; and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles so we'll know them by their limping.

I have an extra one of these- since I've been absent soooo long, the first person who wants the extra card- leave a comment saying so. It's up for grabs :)

It's ALIVE!!!!!

I'm so very lazy, and I have ignored this blog... I've ignored it so much that I cannot even claim that school is keeping it from me. I'm lazy folks. Lazy. It made me think of this Shel Silverstein poem that I loved as a kid. In case you can't read the text it says: Lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy Jane. She wants a drink of water so she waits and waits and waits and waits and waits for it to rain. It still suits me today, I guess some things never change! :)
