lol...to each their own, Isi. I am fascinated by the writing scene of the 1920s...and the 1950s. They truly thought of themselves as artists...with all the eclectic eccentricities!

I've Got a Notion has moved to Bloomfield Avenue in Verona, New Jersey.  Haven't been there yet, but I imagine she has the same stuff as she had in Montclair.
269 Bloomfield Ave | Verona, NJ 07044 | (973) 744-0079.

Thanks for the updated info! I never made it to the Montclair location, but I will definitely have to check it out (I'm in Parsippany).

I might be able to do it if no one else can. I don't have photoshop skills, but I resourcefully work around that all the time, lol. When we get more pages I'll see what I can do. Unless someone else can work their magic. Smiley

Lovely butterfly page - I love the way you incorporated the lace!

I listed a bunch of "favorites," but I still think it's a strong word, haha. I like the books I listed, and have re-read many of them (never recapturing the magic of the first read), but I have this sense that my favorite book is still out there waiting for me somewhere...

I will put down a free or cheap e-book if I'm doing too much eye rolling in the first few chapters (sometimes pages), but some books I force myself through. If everyone is raving about a title, or it's the latest best-seller, or a movie is coming out based on the book and my friends want to see it (I'm definitely a read before watch kind of person), then I will endure. Even if I don't like it, I want to be able to explain why I don't like it...all the way to the bitter end!

And I'm totally with anna.wahnsinn - a good (not necessarily happy) ending is critical! However, I like a little bit of ambiguity in an ending...If I'm unsatisfied by an ending, the story continues in my head. Like the story sticks with you for a while. Which is always the sign of a good book. Cheesy

For those of you who like historical fiction...have any of you read The Paris Wife? It's one of my all-time faves (though didn't make it on my q, lol) about Ernest Hemingway's first wife. I think it's the only historical fiction I've read and enjoyed!

This is so bright and vibrant! The stitching really pops on the purple. Awesome.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: That explains it! baby quilt on: May 25, 2016 05:02:44 PM
Hahaha...awesome quilt!!! I'm so glad it survived the scissors!

PS - I also own that wonderful Froud book, Patraw. I think I looked at that page a million times as a child. Smiley

I received this awesome page from audio today!! She chose my theme of "love" and I think it's the coolest that it's her interpretation.



My themes were a bit different this round as Mr. Road and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary in June, and I thought having pages to commemorate this event would be fitting (I didn't want anything hokey, though, so I didn't mention that in my questionnaire). The themes were an attempt to incorporate my husband's personality into my journal a bit. I really think audio captured a little bit of us both is this page. It's perfect!

And how funny we both did a skull moon!  Cheesy

Thank you so much audio!!!!
