This week-end being behind as usual, I've been constructing my journal for my online journaling class. In doing so I discovered a new love-Washi tape. It is from Japan a type of masking tape that comes in different widths and colors. It is so much fun and makes putting a journal together so easy. I had to take a 2011 day planner and add watercolor paper, envelopes, tags ect to it. The Washi tape made it easy to do and it seems to have held together well. Birds are the subject of my day planner with lots of nice illustrations of birds, also many bird facts. Did you know that the American Robin lives to be 13 years old? And that one ruby throated hummingbird had only 940 feathers? Part of my daily "chore" is to draw how like the weather I feel and one word that describes me. I'm having a little difficulty with today-is misty a weather? It is how I feel, not crying but near tears feeling bad for loved ones that are hurting, and I don't know how to help. Its also misty outside, foghorns blowing in the distance and sense of melancholy in the air.
