WOYWW 218 - Returning to an old friend...

It's been ages since I worked in this wonderful journal...


You can read more about it here.

But I had a hankering, so here's my desk mid-creation Tuesday afternoon...


... fabrics, buttons, Mod-podge, and my new Smash date stamp (upper left corner just above the journal)

And here's a close-up of the page - it's the inside back cover, actually, which is why I (unconsciously) chose the 'etcetera' flashcard, I think...


The main image is from a Sweaty Betty catalogue I cut up - never through anything away, me! As you can see, the glue's still rather wet.

I hope to visit your desks later today - I have physiotherapy at 9am with a new therapist to see what she makes of my right hip, which has been giving me jip since February!

In the meantime, there's still plenty of time to enter my Giveaway, more details here, or you can click on the magazine image on the right sidebar. Good luck :)

Till next week xxx

OOh Claire good luck at physio. Meanwhile, I'm admiring the wonderful journal. And the fact that you had a hankering and were able to just go to it..what? No tidying up, no hour spent finding the stuff....I wanna come play at your house!

Thats a great looking journal, I was trying to peek into your button box too.

Hope you get some help with your hip too.

Beautiful journal, Claire. The last page looks very subtle and interesting. Hope the physio manages to sort your jippy hip for you.

Happy WOYWW,

Your journal is lovely Claire and I love your etcetera flash card for your back cover, very fitting. I too have been back and forth to the physio of late for my back and hip so I hope you get some relief from the pain soon. Happy WOYWW! Danie #14.
