(bundle journal)

two of the nine pockets inside

This bundle journal was made from some recycled jeans and lots of fabric scraps.
It measures  5 feet long by 7 inches tall. It folds up to measure 7 inches by 8 inches. 
There are nine pockets, each with 5 or 6 gelli print papers to be used for journaling or photos or art work.
The back of the bundle is all strips of fabric and the inside with the pockets is just more scraps sewn onto different fabrics.
Lots of fun.

(this week's journal page)

...for the Documented Life Project 
Documented Faith.
The DLP prompt is--> layers.  
There are many layers on this page. 
The DF prompt is--> Matthew 21:22
The circles were cut from a gelli print piece that I received in some happy mail from SusanG. 
The tag on the right was painted last year, inspired by Leike of the DLP 2014 group. 
I typed the verse on a vintage typewriter and glued it down last.
I almost hated to layer this page.
The background was one of my first gelli prints. 
It is a bit lost now.

I love the process of creating these pages. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Guess I let some time escape. 

Here are a couple more passages in my Journaling Bible.
Love this project!!!

(cheerful note)

What a sweet surprise I found in my post box today!
My blogging friend, Shanda, sent me the card and a delicate string of hearts.
It warmed my heart.
Thank you, dear.

(more added passages)

This one is more wrinkly because there is another glued to the back. 

This was a redo. I originally had taped a shipping tag to the edge. It was too heavy and would catch when opening and closing the bible. So....I carefully cut it off and added more washi tape and the words with Versamark.


I am battling a cold.
Guess it was my turn.

Laying low and keeping warm,

(little house bookmark)

What to do when a friend orders a bookmark for her friend.
The only clues to work with were bold colors and the word, precious.
For me, those two things together were a challenge.
Precious would bring to my mind ivory, vintage, pastels.
Went to work on it.
Came up with this.
My friend liked it very much.
Bold and precious.
Who knew?

More margin additions to my Journaling Bible.

Another year, another journal.

I just added my word of the year to the back of the journal.


"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusted in thee."
~Isaiah 26:3

Happy New Year!

(all 12 tags)

I finished the 12 Tags of Christmas project earlier this week.
They go on a ring and will be placed in a box with other similar projects. 
I had fun with it.


How was your Christmas?
We enjoyed our day with family.
I hope to post some photos later next week.
My granddaughter took the pictures and she will be sending them along to me. 


The hubs and I did a little after Christmas shopping today.
It was busy out there.
We are planning to lower our ceiling in the living room this year. 
Our tree will be too tall for the room next Christmas.
So...we went shopping for a shorter tree.
We found one for a very good price.
We also bought all of our wrapping paper as well.
Love that.


The house will be empty again tomorrow.
Everyone heads back home.
The week flew by.


See you later.
