I've been making these adorable little journals from just two sheets of 9x12 mixed media paper. I want a pile of them sitting in a basket where I can just grab one when I need it. For a gift or my own use, I don't care. I want lots of them, in different colors and with different designs.
I found these on YouTube. I was going through videos on my What To Watch recommendations when a picture of these adorable little mini travel art journals caught my eye. There were several more videos with different techniques and I loved them all. The artist is the very talented Jen of Eve. If you'd like to make some for yourself, give her channel a visit, Jen of Eve Designs. She also has an Etsy shop that's worth visiting.

I have a stash of napkins that I hate to throw away but haven't used them in about two years. I'm pretty sure they appear in almost every journal I have, so there's no fear of my missing them. If you would like some for your journal pages they are yours for the taking. Message me on Facebook, or email me at frasier(remove this)firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, which napkin(s) you want and the number of each. These are free as long as postage isn't an issue. I will place as many napkins in a #10 envelope as possible.

January 10 - The Beginning is Always Today and January 17 - Georgia O'Keeffe
January 24 - Words With Friends
February 7 - Don't Stop Til You Get Enough
The funny thing is that I really like the pages I've made. I think I just need to work at my own pace.

I've been eating a lot of food like this lately, even developed a liking for Hommus. It's been a week since I started the Total 10 Diet to break my carb and sugar habit, and I'm still alive. All those foods I thought I couldn't live without, I've managed to live without. Haven't had a carb or refined sugar in a week. No pretzels, no pasta, no doughnuts. Haven't had any dairy in a week. No ice cream, no French Vanilla Cream in my coffee. No coffee.
I've lost 5 lbs.
I don't feel bloated anymore. I'm not struggling to breathe so much when I wear my jeans, and I can zip them without sucking it in.
I actually love the berry smoothies in the morning, but it's not always easy to figure out what to eat at other times. The diet consists of a little protein and a LOT of vegetables, which I love, but geeeeez. Salads with bland vinegar and oil dressing and freezer chicken everyday are a bit much. But I've figured it out....I actually remember how to cook. Chicken Fajitas tonight and on to week 2!
