Hi everyone. Hope your weekend is going well.
My daughter is here for a few days as she is taking a vacation from work. She and I were supposed to be leaving today for a mother-daughter trip to Iceland for a few days. Some of you may possibly remember how I visited Iceland with some friends back in 2016, and my daughter has since wanted to go. Of course with covid that isn't happening. We have a few things planned locally instead. I'm looking forward to some fun with her.
Here's a spread from my Mystery, Mayhem and Magic journal. This is a new journal I started, as I like making some "Halloweenish" pages at this time of year. I am trying to make some non-traditional style pages this year, incorporating the fall season as well certain aspects of the spooky-fun holiday.
I never remember to link up to challenges that aren't in my usual habit, but I am trying to be better at joining into new things. Here's a branch out that I am hoping will become a regular challenge for me. I am linking up to the Creative Mixed Media Challenge, their 65th. The theme is always Anything Mixed Media Goes. There's plenty of mixed media in my page: cloth, die cuts, ink, paper tape, postage stamps, paper ephemera, stamping.
And can you find all the lines in this spread? I see straight lines, circular lives, wavy lines all over the place.
I am linking up to Chris' HOLD THE LINE challenge at Art Journal Journey.
Now that September is over, it is time for me to do my monthly book post. As I say every month, I do this list for my own info. Yet I learn so much from the comments you share with me and also have found some super reads from your book recommendations, that I post each month. Please don't feel you have to read through my list if this is not your interest.
I listened to a few books last month, but I only finished one actual book. I was into a few TV shows in the evenings, and the one book I read was a long one. For me, it didn't seem like as many as usual, but looking at my list, I still managed quite a few stories.
