…and I feel a little sad that this journey is over. It has been like an adventure to play with the “Wreck the Journal” this time around.
In the beginning of July 2008 this cutie arrived in the mail from Amazon. Stacy Julian added this book as a bonus project to her “Have more FUN” class last summer. Looking back – I was very reluctant. I could not see the fun in this book or Stacy`s class. Oh, I loved the class, but FUN…nope! I did spill coffee in my journal. I did send it in the mail. I did get it wet. I scribbled. I wrote. I teared the pages. And I forgot all about this book.
Unntil this summer. I had a lot of search for “Wreck this Journal” on my blog and I did a search myself, ending up at Jamie Ridler studio. I am a shy person and it took a lot of curage to enter Jamie`s next chapter group. But I did, and I am so glad I did. It has been a joy to play with this wonderful group of people.
There are things I never would do with a book. No way will you ever see me taking a walk with a book in a leash. Putting food in my book is a no thing. But – I do admire those who did and I have had fun visualizing my self walking my book through the streets of Bud. I even spent time trying to locate food I could put inside that wouldn`t ruin the book.
It has been amazing to read everyones adventure with this journal. I will never forget the girl who got seeds to grow inside. For me this experience has fulfilled a need to express my self. Every week I have known in my heart what to put in my journal and somehow that something has been my week. A journal. I would love to call it an art journal even if that is a new consept for me.
What now? My journal still have blank pages and some pages needs a new layer. I will keep working with this book. Later today Jamie will announce her new project and I will be checking up on her. Hopefully I will be there to play. Thanks to everyone for a fun summer – wrecking.
“Though the might look so damn far, but with determination and high spirit, definitely you will get to the top.”
Thanks everyone for the most enjoyable 8 weeks.
