I participated in a Spring Ephemera Swap and look at the packages I received!
Some of these pages are not complete yet. I've been working on this journal for a year now! Most people do one a month......suffice it to say I've not been a regular at it. I enjoy working in it but don't make the time to do it. It's really fun to go back and look through old pages....to remember where you were or what you were doing at that time. I don't do a lot of writing...mostly quotes.
about 4 years ago I started a "home book" where I ripped out pages from decorating magazines that I wanted to keep, and pasted them into a regular book from the thrift store. I had it packed away and forgot all about it....I found it one day this winter when we were buried in snow...and I was happy to see all the pages I'd glued way back then. It was funny to see that I'd incorporated a lot of the ideas in my current home...even though I didn't have the book for inspiration. Here's a few pages from that book"
This is the book I'm using....I'm just ripping magazine pages and gluing them in. I haven't worked on this in a long time until I found it in February. When it's finished I will make my own cover for it.
here's a normal page from the book
