waiting pages

First of all...I'd just like to give a huge hug to all of you who congratulated me regarding the newest issue of Somerset Memories and to let you know how loved you all made me feel...thank you, thank you, thank you !!!! So this is what I made a few days ago when I should have been grocery shopping. I hate {really I do} grocery shopping of any kind, so I put it off as long as I possibly can and hide out in my stuido until one of my family members comes looking for me with that, "you haven't fed us yet" look....and then I throw them a loaf of bread and go scurrying back to my safe place. Well, it's kind of like that.
This is a journal.

Filled with scrap paper, magazine pages, ledger pages and a manilla envelope.

And a few pictures. All sewn together. There's actually two groups of papers stiched together and then I used masking tape to attach them to the front and back inside covers. I never knew how much I actually like using masking tape...it really works !

Some of my own painted paper.
And basically lots of places to write and spots to add more pictures.

I think I'll have to come up with a new name for mine.
Traveling for me these days is limited.
And I'm soooo good with that !!


  1. I have yet to see something you create that I do not instantly fall in love with and covet.
    If you continue to post such inspiring pictures of your work, I may just have to start creating some things of my own. :)

  2. This looks wonderful - you always paint so great - the colors are just awesome!!!

  3. Another great adventure awaits! Thanks for the peep show!

  4. You are so damn cool!!!!!!

    Love it!

  5. Love the journal! Have you heard if the Somerset was out yet. I've been looking for it and have had others on the csrowl too for it. I've been telling everyone. I'm really proud of you.



  6. Wonderful journal, Beth! You inspire me!


**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
