Day 1506: easily distracted by shiny objects ...






"Cathy", 8 x 11", magazine & junk mail collage journal page

















I am. I am hopeless!
Recently on an outing with artist /friend Val ...
we were mid-conversation when I shifted gear as an idea hit.
I heard Val say aloud, "there she goes!"
And so it is today, all alone, I drift.
I am preparing for my journal class series.
Four classes where we explore & play.
I have about 85 of my completed journals in various sizes ...
another 20+ in various states of progress. 
I want the class to see many varieties & directions.






 I haul some to class as possibilities.
So, as I sorted, one was so old that the binding had rotted ...
 I shifted gears & replaced it.

This was not on my to do list, 
and I'm not very crafty with a needle but
 I was so proud of my work I took a picture!
Also not on my list.
