Journals and aprons...

I didn't have school yesterday, which was such a relief. I spent the morning making that gingerbread man apron. It turned out pretty cute. In other words, nothing went wrong, but I wasn't as happy with it as I had hoped to be. I really should have used green bias tape instead of red, but none of the greens matched perfectly. I'll post pictures soon (I realize that I still haven't posted pictures of Mom's apron yet). Then today wasn't so bad at school. It's never really bad. I enjoy it. It's just the part of being away from home most of the day that I don't like.

I got inspired by QueSara's latest post and the link that she included. I've been journaling for about 6 years now, but I had never dreamed of such beautiful journal pages as some of those. I always wanted a journal that was more than just writing on pages...I always wanted one that had all sorts of things stuck in it (papers, notes, pictures, quotes, and ideas) until it was bursting at the seams. Don't ask me why. So I set out to make mine a little more creative, starting by cutting some pictures out of one of my 1951 McCall magazines. My first attempt was pretty pitiful and wrinkly, and it reminded me that I absolutely hate glue. Oh well, I'll try again. And so I leave you with Cary Grant and that infamous window seat in "Arsenic and Old Lace" (which I watched for the first time in forever yesterday).

Until next time,
Kristin (missvintagegirl)
