Happy weekend everyone. Today has been a busy Saturday for me. My mom was in the hospital with pneumonia earlier this week, and now she is in rehab, so the hubby and I took the trip down to go visit her. The good new is that she doing really well, and we had a nice little visit. It looks like she is expected to be back home in another day or two.
As we were walking back to the car, we noticed these turkeys hanging around the front of the building. This guy decided to walk out in our direction. Maybe to chase us away. :) I don't know, but it was pretty funny to see them in the parking lot where so may people were coming and going.
It was an absolutely gorgeous and spring like day today. I loved it. After all our snow and cold lately it was about time for some good weather!
I'm almost finished putting my travel journal together. Before the pages get put into the cover, I did a little pre-trip decorating. I got most of this done last Monday when I was home on a snow day, and then I was able to finish it up a couple of evenings after work. I'm hoping tomorrow I can get it put into the cover since next weekend I will be two time zones further west. :)
I have a magazine about New mexico travel that I brought home after last years trip. In the back was some information pages, and I thought It would be cool to add the fact sheet in, so I cut it out and added it. On the right is a little envelope for any little treasures I pick up.
Lots of space for collaging, drawing or writing.
I got inspired to make a couple of pages that were more or less finished too.
And on the right I added this clear pouch (the shiny part) that I found in my stash. I think its big enough for a normal sized postcard.
And for a couple of pages I made some writing squares.
I didn't spend a lot of time painting any of the pages. Just enough to make then a little less white.
I'll have a lot more to show you in future posts I am sure.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
