I have been reading this book. Its all about de-cluttering and feng shui and using scents, blessings and much more for your home. I found out about it at a monthly healing circle that I go to. It is a fun read and the author sounds like she would be great to meet. The group here is doing a Skype event with her next month. I think that will be really fun to take part in.
I also have had Sarah shows me some things on my computer programs. I now have the cd covers loaded into iTunes for all my music. That was so satisfying to have done. Its great having a computer wiz in the family.
Then I realized over the last few weeks what I have been doing is de-cluttering my computer. I had cleaned up my download files and my documents. Then bloglines is closing so I moved everything to NetNewsWire which I like even better. Then I changed my email address to gmail which is so much better that yahoo was. Its a lot of work but oh I love the new results. Plus iTunes is all fixed, I got rid of a lot of duplicate files and its all pretty now. I have also unsubscribed to a lot of newsletters that I just never read. Try de-cluttering your computer it makes your life easier in the long run.
I started a new journal, I know its insane I have 4 different ones going now. When I was at my friend Jolene's she was working in an old book. I hadn't tried that so I went to the thrift store and found a a book called B.F."s Daughter written in 1940. I thought that will do. I glue 3 pages together to make it thicker paper and gesso before I began to play. First I painted the border and then used oil pastels on the background which then I covered with collage. When I was editing the photo is photoshop elements I thought I'd play a little
Look how the collage looks in aqua.
Or perhaps blue....
Or even purple. I think it would be interesting to print out these different pages and reuse on other pages. That is what I love about art journaling, ideas can come out of anything.
