photo journal stuff

I’m starting a photo journal. Here’s how it’ll work: I’ll take a new photo every day. No exceptions; every single day. I’ll print the photo and glue it into my cool little handmade journal and then write some details about the photo. I’ll also post the photo to Flickr. I’m on day three. We’ll see how long this lasts. Pictured above are all my supplies…computer, printer, photo paper, journal, new pen, glue stick and always-in-the-way cat.

First entry


Had to make a Mrs. Dino.


I found this interesting site called 43 Things to write down and track your goals.

“People have known for years that making a list of goals is the best way to achieve them. Why is that? First, getting your goals in writing can help you clarify what you really want to do. You might find you have some important and some frivolous goals. That is OK. You’ve got space for 43 Things on your list. Not every one of them has to change the world (but save room for the ones that might).”

Magic happens when you write stuff down.

dino done

He’s finished! Crazy-looking and very much handmade but kinda cute, I think. All he needs now is a little love.

My sewing technique is very primitive, so I’m pretty sure Mr. Dino will experience some future surgeries. This may be just the start of an epic journey…


I shrunk a nice sweater on accident so I decided to put it to good use as a plushie for my nephew. The dino is in pieces now but I’ll post a photo when he’s all finished. The design was highly inspired (not copied!) by this “protosaurus” I found through my masterful Google searching.

Cool…a blog!
