Looking Back on the Second

Hi everyone!  I'm busy cleaning up the mess in my studio space. My box of Halloween things is all picked up, and I've put away other items. I get into these creative rolls and I don't pick anything up in the process. So it's time to clean a bit before I pull out my Christmas box and start making another mess. :)
So that's my Second on the Second theme.
Back in 2015 I was doing the same thing. Cleaning off my table and as a result, making this double page journal spread.
Here's the link: Cleaning Up and a New Journal.

Stop over at Bleubeard nd Eliabeth's blog and join in by reposting something from your blog.
End of quarter exams are going on at school right now. It's keeping me busy. Tomorrow the new quarter starts and I am ready to start fresh, even though I don't have any new students.  Hope today the school turns the heat on today though.  I sat all day yesterday with my jacket on. Real fall temperatures have arrived.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Love your clearing the table pages. But you have reminded me that I need to do some clearing up, too. Hope school will be warmer for you today. Hugs, Valerie

Love the page and the idea of re-using and recycling. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't put her toys away. I had the heat blasting in the sunroom yesterday. Today, I'm teaching at the museum always climate controlled. Hope the school turns the heat on for you, today. Have a good day

I love those striking colors on this amazing spread! Good to see it a second time!
Wishing you a happy second on the2nd Erika!
Good to start a new quarter - and good that there are some days to rest in sight as well. Daughter was on the Halloween Party until nearly 5 am in the morning Wednesday and she was tired on Wednesday- now she has to learn for her upcoming Physics test today and tomorrow there are coming two class mates for prepairing for a presentation summery on Monday ... and on Saturday she has to work at the supermarket as every Saturday - and I bet she will find someone to party with her after work... so I am glad that she needs NO TaxiMum( at least hope so)- or Shopping with me Mum .... yes!!!

I really enjoyed the look back at your then new black art journal. I actually LOVE the black background and allowing part of it to show made it even better. It's a beautiful entry and speaks to my sense of recycling, too. SO glad you shared this with us as your Second look on the 2nd today.

Just read your comment. I left links to the Time and Money altered books. You can see the inside of each and every page at those links. I still need to photograph the Asian AB because it is far too dimensional to scan.

I have a cornucopia I get out for Thanksgiving after the Halloween decorations are put away. I like the gourds and little pumpkins as a centerpiece. I can't imagine what it would be like if I had craft supplies to keep up with lol

I love reading your Second post - great recycling job too! As for today and tidying up - that is exactly what I'm doing - too much stuff out of it's place ! I remember being in school and it not being the time for the heating to be on! Happy 2nd on the 3rd!!! Hugs, Chrisx

Very cool journal page, Erika. Good for you on clearing things away so you can make a new mess - lol. Aaack, is it time to get out the Christmas stuff already?!

Happy 2nd on the 2nd! Hugs, Eileen
