First of Last 3

Getting very close to binding. Having thoughts & ideas of how its going to go & what I will do with the journals once I am done.
Am working in my own journal but have found myself days ahead with collaged pages. The last 2 daily journals I have built are about 3" thick. Its been fun to work in such a giant book. Its just about a year's worth of pages.
Am thinking of entering some of my coptic bound books in an exhibition at the Abecedarian Gallery in Colorado. It would be a good idea.

Some good old phone book pages & magenta German trolley postage stamp. I am wondering if a person would have trouble writing on these pages. They are meant to be written on. I do. Writing about my day has amazing power.
Reading is a Super Power. Writing is a Super Power too.

Blank Journal Page #28

#28 for posting today.
Some clay tile work & a puppy. What could be better?
I have another idea! I am very excited about my next blank journal project!
I have loved doing "ABCEDARIANS" for all sorts of things. My favorite is the one I did, as an edition, about my trip to Spain. I was planning on doing an Abcedarian for summer adventures (which I plan on having) & I have always wanted to do one on "Mythological Micanopy".

Monday's Page

Seems like now the hard work begins: finding a binding system. I really like the Cinch Book Binding tool, but the spirals seem hard to find & are really expensive. I'll keep looking. The industrial world might be a better place to look than the crafty world. I want to use a spiral bind.
Another question is how many pages. I always use a variety of papers, some even challenging to write on --thats the fun of it.
Saw Ernest & Celestine at the Hipp & watched CBGB on cable. Good.
And vacuumed & washed floors a little.

Only ONE more to go!

I've actually finished 31 blank journal pages, although I have not posted them all yet. I will continue to post until I am done. Don't you love hand shadows? And I am wondering if that is part of a Giotto? I forgot to make note.

Sitting Bird

So, Magpies can recognize themselves in mirrors. Learned it from my favorite podcast, Dinner Party Download. Dave Barry was just giving etiquette advice. Hilarious!
This is #25. Seven more.
Saw Cosi Fan Tutte last evening at the movie theater. I LOVED it. How do opera singers last a whole performance? Its not a joke.
But I do have one for you:
What do you call an alligator wearing a vest?
