I also discovered and subscribed to a new blog called Jennibellie Studio and watched a video of hers about making a journal from cereal boxes. I didn't follow her instructions exactly, but am on my way to making one. The cover is part of an instant oatmeal box covered in Tyvek, and the insides are from Cheetos cracker boxes, a bit of light bookboard and another cereal box (I forget what kind). I think my next step will be to cover the inside "pages" with gesso before deciding how to decorate them. Then I'll sew them together.
In between these two projects, while waiting for glue to dry on the cover of the book, I sketched one of my favorite birds, the sand hill crane.

I am planning to go to my exercise class this morning and I am taking Miss P with me. I talked with her and her Mom last evening and she said she was going to stay overnight at a girlfriend's house, so I told my friend, Nancy, that Miss P would not be accompanying me. Imagine my surprise when both girls arrived this morning.
I hope to have a fun time with the girls this morning. They are only here until early afternoon. Later this afternoon, Papa and I will go to Miss P's last softball game of the season and pick up some supplies for a privacy fence he is planning to build in the front/side yard.
What do you have planned for today? Are you finding time to do some art?
