I am in a round robin book swap and this week I am shipping my book off to the first of 10 other girls (not including myself) who will create pages in my book based on the theme I chose.
There are so many ideas swimming around in my head, but I have gone with a very general theme.
This book is all about "happiness"
I began creating it under the tutelage of Pam Garrison at my very first art retreat ever. It was held in Ashland, Oregon, where I actually met some of the girls in the RR for the first time and it will forever be a memory of a very happy time in my life… up there with some of the happiest. I was with like-minded girls, all come together for the simple pleasure of creating. I never even knew such things existed. Now with this, I finally have a great use for my budding art journal. Since that time in Aug 2008, it has been waiting for the perfect inspiration to fill it, and I am honored to be in such a group of girls who will help make that happen.
The girls will focus on the simple things that make them happy. It could be dedicated to just one thing, or a whole list of things. They may even just capitalize on a quote about happiness. I want their creations to make them happy. After all, it is about the journey, right?
