Hobonichi: A Japanese company specializing in
planners and accessories, which encourages their
customers to "Make it your Life Book."
Techo: Japanese for 'planner'.
Collage: A composition or design made by arranging
and gluing materials to a background surface.
My Techo is the A6 size English planner, so it's
roughly 4 inches by 6 inches, and the quotes on
each two-day spread are translated into
English. They are not necessarily 'motivational
quotes' but rather quotations from books, and
are often quirky or amusing.
I challenged myself for the month of August
to create a collage each day.
Scrapbook paper, envelope liners, doodles,
painted papers, scraps sent from blogging
buddies...they're all resources!
Our daughter asked us to volunteer at a Nascar
event, to benefit the Music Boosters at her school.
Hubby thought it sounded fun. Above, my pass for
the day. Our job was to help attendees on and off
of the Trams that went from the camping area to
the racetrack. We met lots of happy people from
many different places, including Canada, England,
Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio.
Since I dressed for sun protection and comfort,
my appearance that day was very odd, especially
with the addition of the red vest we were required
to wear! (as my 'selfie' cartoon clearly shows)
The open-air Trams had chains or ropes
as 'guardrails' at the end of each row of seats,
fastened with caribiners. I found that when you are
trying to be efficient and quick, that is when you
become the most clumsy at unfastening a
caribiner! (I don't think I will ever be a rock climber)
I had taken a backpack with drawing supplies,
but we were kept busy all day, so no chance

Always interesting times when we visit the daughter
and son-in-law. Daughter plays in a praise band
at her church, and they also are 4-H advisers.
So we went to a small-town parade and a barbecue
fund-raiser on Saturday, and got details about
the planning for the 4-H booth at the Fulton
county fair. I expect we will go to the tractor pull,
and I will try to do some sketching of the
animals again. Stay tuned...
I recently exchanged some Happy Mail with someone
in Washington state, and received a lovely package
stuffed with vintage ephemera from
#forgottengems (on Instagram) The above collage
includes some of the goodies she sent.
Linking up for T Tuesday, where we share a
beverage related post with our hosts
Bleubeard and Elizabeth. Last week there
were 10 coffee cups in my post (if you count the
one that was repeated a second time) but you
could actually have counted the magic potion
as a beverage too, making 11!
How many cups do you see this week?
