Circle journals...

Shelley's cj:










Laurie's circle journal:











I am totally amazed by us. The group of 13 women we have in our circle journal. They are amazing. I have just got (today) two journals from Gina... and they are amazing. Each time I open the packages (this time a box! yay!) I am blown away. You can feel the amount of time, effort and love coming from these little books of art. I am truly inspred and amazed. This is what i've needed to stop being so slack.

Laurie's is Influential women ~ one I think i'm going to find easy to do. You know how much my mum and my middle sister have and do mean to me. I guess I want to capture that in my page. How loosing my mum left a huge hole for me and it still makes me sad but those two weeks she was very ill and after she had gone I gained something so precious. I gained a fabby close bond with my middle sister. So much more than I could've ever imagined having with anyone. And that makes me so happy. Things happen for a reason, I guess this was it.

So thats what I want to add into Laurie's cj. How close I was to my mum for 21 years. How she was my best friend and there through thick and thin and then when she went I gained something very special. A sister who is caring and loving and always there. I noticed something I had all along but hadn't realised.

I also have Shelley's cj too... ooooh colours! I am totally rocked to be in this journal as her and Michelle's blog I read devotedly without fail. I love their styles and their take on life. They are wow-some. I'm pretty nervous about adding to it. I have an aqua marine-y colour to inspire me... i'm thinking and I have a few cool seaside ish type ideas floating around. It's such a super cool idea to do this for a cj. It makes me kinda wish I had better ideas for mine before I made it up.
