In the zone

That's where I've been lately.  Working in the new journal, making tiny books.  I get going and the next thing I know it's 3 am. 

The new journal is huge!  I didn't realize how much bigger it is than my old journal until I started working and hoo boy it's bigger.  It's taking a lot of getting used to but I'm enjoying the new challenge. 

I've also noticed a more cohesive feel to it that my previous journal.  No matter how I start, I always come off with a similar feel, if not a similar look.  I painted a page a glossy black in preparation for tomorrow when I plan to try to break the similarity.

Here are two teeny prototype journals.  I have one more that is in the style I decided to to go with.  I'm having so much fun making these, here's hoping that lasts until I get a bunch finished.

Stinking cold

It's been snowing here.  Snowing!  I love it, burrowing down with the kids and old movies, attempting to make snowmen and snowballs.  Great fun.  Until I got slammed with the cold that won't die.  Urgh.  While being snowed in at least I finished Journal the Original.  I have an odd sense of finality while at the same time am thoroughly excited about starting the new journal.  Here are the final pages.


And I out myself as the complete geek I am.
