Oh no, Edel! Glad to hear your mum is okay. I had a similar little scare just before you go back, so I know how exhausting it is. I'm okay with you sending a bit late if needs be. (And the mail from here to Europe seems to be very fast right now. A letter got from here to Yorkshire last week in only two days.)

I had the afternoon off today so I went to the Paper Place store to buy lovely stuff for the journal, and on the way there the car secretly vomited up most of its transmission fluid. I wouldn't normally drive right into the city, but Ian had a couple of boxes of books to pick up from his publisher, so I thought I'd combine both errands. The book pick-up went well, but when I parked at the Paper Place I noticed a trail of suspicious drops leading up to to the curb and a rapidly-spreading puddle under the car. Uh oh Angry

But I was at the store anyway, so I went in and bought my paper before I called the auto club. It's probably just as well, because I would almost certainly have spent too much money there (I always do) if I hadn't had the distraction of a dying car across the street.

In the end it was only a rusted line and doesn't seem to have done any harm to the transmission. The rest of the afternoon was wasted reading Portuguese magazines in the waiting room of a garage, and I had to give away money I would've rather spent on rubber stamps and gorgeous papers, but at least it wasn't the catastrophic incident it might've been.

I'm doing a lot of work on the unbound signatures too, before I bind it up this weekend. It's just a lot easier because you can have several of them on the go at once, without having to wait for one page to dry before moving on to another.

This is great! I'm a big Holmes fan, and this is something I would have in my library for sure! I've never thought of cutting whiteboard into interesting shapes, but it's a brilliant idea. There was a 4x8 ft panel of it hanging around at work for several years before it finally got thrown out this spring. Nobody wanted it, but they sure would have if I'd made it into fun shapes!

I am bringing along my crocheting and my sewing machine in the car with me so I don't go crazy once we finally get to the east coast waiting for permanent housing and out things to arrive.

I'm picturing you squeezed into the back seat of a car packed with belongings, sewing your way across the country! Good luck with your move and be sure to let us know when you've settled in safe and sound.

Ooooh! I can smell it just from the picture! It's such a good thing I didn't have a heat gun when I was 8 years old.

Wait a minute - are those really octopus doggie treats? Could such a thing actually exist?

Of course you're well situated for over-cute Japanese stuff, Suereal. Vancouver is where the container ships of cutneness are unloaded!

Oh, thanks a lot, IsikkahJai - now I'll have "Mister Roboto" running through my head all morning!

I love the idea of Edel's  Armes de France journal! But I might be tempted to eat the pages instead of write on them! Grin

I bought a stack of old magazines and a big folder of even older clippings at yard sales today, and I'm willing to bet some of it is going to end up in this journal.

Working on my cover, which has multiple components...

Oooh! I don't even know what that means, but I like it! And thanks everybody for the great new links. Interesting new ideas there.

I haven't had too much to say in this Gallery, but the stuff is great! I love the hamsa hand and the eye bead, Saturn. No danger of the Evil Eye in Fullmoon's room! And your calligraphy is lovely, too. The Wiccan Rede is a lo-o-ong text to letter so carefully!
