amaryllisroze - hope you get to feeling better very soon!

Well we are up to 11 baby goats now - hubby went down to the Stock Show without me so I could take care of things here - just took a few more pics - so will have plenty to chose from to make those ATC's rackycoo <G>


I think you should sneak one pic into this thread. I won't tell any mods if you won't.   Wink

I'm not able to get my hands on the Lynne Perrellia book right now, but I've been looking at her website.  Wow!  I thought you all might also find inspiration in it:

I was baffeled by the "numbers and letters" theme until looking at her journals page:
http://www.lkperrella.com/Journals.htm

Now, I'm *TOTALLY* going with that theme.  What wonderful little shapes to make art out of.

Thanks so much for the links to her website. I'm feeling a bit more comfortable with the theme.

I've made the covers & the artist signature pages for my journal.

Don't let us bully you into a theme you don't want! Step outside the box...do what YOU want!  Cheesy

I have some hoo-ha's sitting on the cover of my journal now. I'm trying to decide whether or not they want to be glued down. I need my girls to get up and do some critiquing.  Smiley I love having a couple of resident critics!

I'm going to do the sign-in page today. I'm getting a little better picture in my head of how it wants to look.

Okily doke, my journal is done. I'll apologize to you all now, it doesn't want to lay open flat. Pfffffft.

I'm sending a paper clamp & waxed paper along with it, so you can keep the front pages away from you while you work, then you can tuck in a pc. of waxed paper and throw it in the mail. In the last book swap there were some pages in my book that stuck together.  Cry

The last three pages are pockets with tags. Would those work for Artist Signatures? I saw some where that this artist would create a piece, then decorate a tag with the left overs.

Sounds great, stiffly. I think we should all plan to slide wax paper between all the pages as we ship. I put some between mine last night just to dry. It would be so sad to have pages stick together!

As for the pockets and tags, great idea! I can't wait to see your journal.

You're not mailing out until the 31st, are you? Aren't we all mailing at the same time?

I think we should all mail on, or as close to the 31st if possible.

Isn't that the way the UKers did it?

I'm not sure how they worked it, but I like the idea of them all being in the mail at the same time. I'm weird like that, I guess.  Smiley
