3 Days on the Road

No photos...just words.  We spent 3 days on the road so far.  EXTREMELY uneventful.  We've slept in Columbus, Ohio; Des Moines, Iowa and Cheyenne, Wyoming.  Saw the most AMAZING sunset in Nebraska.  It lasted for 45 minutes.  I don't think I'll see anything like that ever again.  On to Salt Lake City, Utah today...

Moving Back to California

Yup, that is what we're doing.  We are moving back.  After four years, we are leaving the snow, the rednecks, the prejudice, and all the things that have made our lives a living hell during our stay here.  I have resigned from my teaching position; last day is Dec. 23rd. We start driving across country on Dec. 25th.  Yes, we are driving...hence, the JOURNEY theme for this journal.  My husband is staying behind to sell the house (he's still gainfully employed and we DO NEED THE MONEY TO DO THIS!) and will join us soon.

I wanted to journal the journey.  I've NEVER had a journal just for writing, so this is a new thing for me.  Here is what I have so far...

It's a bound 'visual journal' that I bought from Dick Blick's; I think 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Some pages are Caran D'ache Crayons and some are acrylics.  Some are stamped.  All the pages are bordered with hand painted deli papers/book pages.  I hope I enjoy writing in it as much I'm enjoying making it!

Scrappy HeART page

I love this journal because it has so many different sized pages, tags, scrap...anything I could get my hands on that was just laying around when I made it.  This is on a tag; used things that were just laying on my table.
