Monday sure sneaks up on us fast! One of my twitter friends last week said that Monday is a really crappy way to spend 1/7th of your life! I think she is right! I had a very productive weekend, and I listed 3 new journals.

I feel like I'm being pulled in a new direction with these... they are 4X6, so much smaller than my others. But they are also from more recycled materials. Shabbier, perhaps. I've always loved the shabby chic movement... and I always seem to miss the mark. These do as well, but I'm very happy with them.

It was not a photo weekend. That's ok. I made journals, and it feels like I have not done that in forever! I have an art show coming up in February. And an art/craft show & sale coming up this spring. For the first time in my life, I feel like I need a day planner! I think that will be a good investment very soon.

Have any of you seen the video for "Rock Star" by Nickelback? I may post it on here in a day or two... Why do I bring it up? Well, because my dad looks like the guys in ZZ Top. No kidding. And in that song, the ZZ Top guy is asking questions along the way... 'how you gonna do it' 'what do you need' etc. My dad is like that in my life. He helps to guide me to the next step. He lets me figure out what that step is, then he asks me to think it through so I get there... not pushing me in any direction, but helping to get the thoughts straight and keeping me on track. Not sure how I feel about music on my blog... but as long as it has a play button and isn't automatic, it will be ok.

So... I hope today is the start of an amazing week! Don't forget to check out the Etsy party and enter for some of the giveaways over here.

Hi Robyn. Saw your tweet so I decided to give you post a browse. Monday, it's always pretty, true. Toughest day of the week. Fortunately, now we're having holidays for the lunar new year, so today (Monday) was actually one of my favourites. Basically just visiting family & friends, eat and dress nicely. How many 'Monday' like that in our lives. Treasure the moment, I guess.

And I think a music clip would be a great idea. ^^ take care.

I once saw the ZZ TOP Band eating BBQ in my hometown, Memphis. Many years ago, but of course they had the long beards.

Little known fact that rock bands STILL record in Memphis. Easier to get around town without recognition I think. I saw quite a few at various bars and restaurants back in the day.

Most folks associate Nashville as the main recording town in Tennessee.

OK, enough, I ramble. I am off of here and going to etsy to see your shabby journals!
