One thing you've got to love about summer is its fruit and veggie bounty. Maybe if you live someplace warm where your growing season is long, or longer than ours here in New England, you might not get as excited about fresh produce. But seeing I come from a place where our nice weather is limited to a few short months, and since I love gardening (it's those farming genes I get from my dad's ancestor's I guess), I like to take advantage of all the yummy things to eat that summer brings.
And right now it is strawberry season in my area. So yesterday was my favorite kind of day (low humidity, warm but not hot) and I went strawberry picking at a local farm.
Seeing I arrived at the farm at about 8 AM, there was quite a few other folks picking already.
The picking was fantastic.
And boy do they taste good. I got ambitious last night and did a bit of baking.
And that tasted good too. Hee-hee.
And I'm working away on my Japan Travel Journal. I'm about 90% done and ready to be finished with it.
These 2 pages make up a spread. The top page's background is some type of shipping form. There was whole stack of them in the lobby of a hotel, so I snagged on. It has several layers, so I used some of them to make the background. Then I added a postcard, a bit of stamping, a postage stamp and a painted title. Oh yes, and one of those cute dog stickers.
And this bottom page is started with some black and white striped napkins and then one of the Geisha napkin images. You might remember I used one of these before. But if you don't, that's not an issue.
So I added a few assorted bits of paper and then stamped some Japanese texts-but who knows what they actually say.
Since my beautiful Japanese lady has butterflies I am going to link up to Try It On Tuesday and their new challenge which is Things with Wings. And I am also linking up to Gill's challenge at Art Journal Journey which is Inspired By. These pages are inspired by my trip back in April to Japan. And no, I am not obsessed by Japan and am ready to move forward. That's why I am working away on my trip journal like a crazy woman.
OK, I have babbled on way too much.
Thank you for visiting. I always appreciate you stopping by.
