Hello Lovelies! I Have Been Working On Something! Really!

Hello all my lovely friends in blogland! I am (unfortunately) snowed in today! On my way in to work I nearly ran smack dab into someone's backyard fence! So... needless to say, I turned around with my tail between my legs and headed home where it was safe! The roads are a nasty place to be today. Praying for all you who have to head into work or are out on the road in the snow! May you make it to your desintations safely!

Meanwhile... I have put my NaNoWriMo writing aside this week and have been able to do a little bit of journaling in my NEW journal. There is something very sweet about buying a new journal... the pages all clean and tidy... the smell of new paper! I know... I'm a sick puppy! I can't help that I go all googly-eyed and get distracted by 'shiny' objects when I see a row of journals in a store! Aaaaaahhhhhh! I LOVE IT!

So this page spread marks the first pages in my "Kelly's Book Of Lovely Things" journal. This book is dedicated to all the lovely things in my life, in my brain, all my blessings., and or any and all shiny beautiful objects that just happen to cross my path. It is going to be filled with girly, frilly, pink, colorful, bright things that make me feel feminine. (After all when one is surrounded by the male species, one must do what one must do, right???) I am getting excited just thinking about filling this one up! Hooray for being a girl!

Well my lovely friends, I wish you all the very best of days. Please be careful if you live in a snowy wintery place like me! Now, since I woke up this morning at 4AM I am going to take advantage of the fact that I am snowed in and am going to take a wee little nap! Stay warm everyone!

Much love and God bless you and as always... Happy Creating!

That's a great idea for a journal theme. I love the pattern on her face and the bold colors.

Wow, I cannot imagine being snowed in at all! I love your idea for a lovely things journal! A great way to show your gratefulness for all thyings girly!

Kelly, I love journals too!...but I never 'write' in them..I just make tons of lists. It makes me so happy. :o) I sew covers so I can change out depending on my mood or the clothes I'm wearing.

I'm sorry about your run in with a fence but glad you are OK. I can't even imagine snow or ice today. It's chilly but sunny out here in the Sam Houston National Forest.

Thanks for the sweet comments. I was nervous that my story about Thanksgiving seemed too 'down' at first.

I'm off to check out your older posts and see if you have any writing I can read.

Have fun with your new journal. Funny..I woke up at 5:30am and decided to write. That's when I did my post about dinner memories.

Enjoy your journal..and blankets.

Hi Kelly! Glad that you are safe and warm and happily creating! I am excited about your new journal! (I just ran to the window because it sounded like popcorn popping, and I see hail balls coming down! The snow can't be far away now...)

Kelly said...

Hi there! Snowed in?? That sounds so crazy to my ears right now! (I'm in South Carolina..) but stay safe and enjoy that new journal. I think a cold snowy day sounds like the perfect time to do some journaling.
Stay warm,

You are not a sick puppy, Kelly! Or else I am, too. I love new journals. To the point that I always have several waiting!

I can't wait to see this one...full have happy pink girly things!

Beautiful spread in your new journal. Way to go! I know exactly what you mean when you say you go all googly eye when you see a row of journals. Oh it's like an addiction, the smell, the touch ... oh just to hold a new journal in my hands! See I am already on another planet now ... dreaming away ... lol

Your journal sounds like it will be great....a girlie girl journal. Have fun with it.
