I went up to Missoula this past weekend to see my daughter present her honors thesis project. That is Rachel, Brenna and Sarah in the picture. Their project involved rewriting fairy tales and looking at why some stories last. They all wrote a version of Little Red Riding Hood. Their stories were vastly . Sarah told the story from the wolf's point of view, Brenna's a more contemporary tale and Rachel took us to the dark side. They were all great stories and these three female authors all presented their stories very well. I was one proud momma.
On Sunday we went to breakfast here. I am a sucker for diners, I love trying them out anywhere I can find one.
On the inside it was all pink and green, a very retro look to it. If you look at the ceiling on the left you can see a piece of car sticking out of the wall. Diners are always so unique in their decor. They had great breakfasts too.
Then we went for a walk along the river. It really was a beautiful morning.
Here I am taking a few moments to enjoy the water view.
Violette's Journal Challenge
I did this little challenge from Violette's site. Go here to participate. She had you do 4 things.
1. An action - I used a credit card to paint with.
2. a texture making tool, I used sequin waste even though you can't see it.
3. word - Happy New Life
4. visual item - magazine image of some bedding.
I actually chose the image first and then the words and then added my own journaling on how the image made me feel. Doing these challenges are fun because they mix it up a little, make you think differently from your normal way of doing things.
