Art Journals, Jewelry, and Hepburn, Oh My!

Good Sunday night!  I hope you all have had a fabulous weekend.   It has been a wonderfully warm few days, but, alas, I believe this weather will begin to turn cooler sometime during the overnight hours tonight.  The good news here...terrific sleeping weather! 

The weekend has been really busy for me, but I managed to squeeze in some time to catch up with Bonnie on my Discovering Myself Journal.  Have a look at these 4 pages and let me know what you think.

I'm sorry for the less than terrific photos.  I took these with the camera on my phone, which, actually works fairly well, but the light was horrid in the room and I just could not adjust what light I had and/or the flash on the phone.  I think there are 3 or 4 more pages to go and I should really know myself!

On Friday, before getting to watch my littlest daughter ride on her Daisy float in the Homecoming Parade, I received the Halloween bracelet in the mail that I won from Amy at RubyMoon Art.  The bracelet she made is super cool, but look at the container she sent it in.  It is really neat.

Cool huh?  I managed to complete one more art/craft related activity just before the "beep beep beep" of my pager rang out...I finally purchased the fabric for my coat I'm making for the Hepburn Hepburn Project hosted at Rhinestones and Telephones.  I decided on doing the "simple" coat:  vintage Simplicity 5301.

Again, this photo sucks, but trust me..the fabric is pretty nice.  It is more on the green side of khaki than the tan.  It is a semi heavy cotton/poly blend of some sort.  I was excited to begin to cut out the pieces and get started on this project, but I could not ignore the beep. Maybe I'll be able to start cutting this week??  Hope so!
Toodles for now!

Your art journal tags are simply beautiful! I like all the stitching detail you incorporate.

What a lovely bracelet too - and the tin, what a bonus!

... wish I could do real sewing - lol.

The journal pages are very beautiful. I'm a BIG Monty Python fan myself. Fawlty Towers is hilarious! Have you watched Waiting for God?

Awesome coat and fabric!! I'm looking forward to seeing it. I've just finished my scissors skirt for the project. Must take pics and post.

Your journal project is a lovely way to list things about you.
I am impressed that anyone would attempt to make a coat - I am in awe; Hepburn for sure!
You received a fun bracelet in time to wear for the holiday, and the container is really cute.
Just think of all the interesting things that have come about through blogging.

I love your journal pages. I'd like to be remembered for being a good mother, kind & thoughtful.
( I'm not in tough with the school friend but intend to find her - I have her parents' address so I can send a letter via them. However in the past two years two old friends have come back into my life & it's wonderful.
Meeting two Blogging friends on Friday too !!
