Tuesday is the day that Elizabeth and Bluebeard
(Elizabeth's dignified cat) have a Link Party
over at Altered Book Lover blog.
We share what we have in our cups
(mine is coffee, not tea) and what project
we are working on, so visit the gang for T Tuesday!
I purchased a new mug on vacation...it was
on sale -- I love a good sale! --- and it
has a retro-style Mini Mouse on one side,
and Mickey on the other. Fun and delightful!
My messy table with piles of paper, art journals,
decorative tape, watercolors, and my
Documented Life Journal. It is addicting...
one calendar page per week to keep track of
my schedule, and three surfaces on the right to
make art or journal. (In this photo, the flap on
the right is covered by the loose back cover
that folds over/into the book.
I bought some cheap fluorescent craft paint
a while back, and have enjoyed using it for
postcards and journal pages. It is more
transparent than other craft paint, so it requires
a bit of practice to get used to...Love the intensity
of the colors. This photo was taken on our new camera
and I think I was using a 'pop art' filter...so the
color may be even more intense...
I've created another blog, called
for my Fake Journal projects.
Every April, Roz Stendahl of
Roz Wound Up conducts a challenge
to create a Fake Journal.
What is a Fake Journal?
You can choose who you want to be,
what you do for a living, and how you
make your journal....
make up a fantastic story, or just
draw from a different perspective.
Visit Roz on the challenge blog at
So far, I've journaled from the perspective
of a Native American shaman, and a
student of Asian art and philosophy.
My fake journal posts in April this year
will be posted on my blog
Cottonwood Counterfeit Journal.

Happy Spring to all...
