WOYWW? Secret journal stuff

Well hullo there. It's your royal Podgeness here this morning. I've nabbed the desk to join in with WOYWW. If you haven't heard of WOYWW before then take a trip over to Julia's Blog to find out more.

We spent a large chunk of Sunday art journalling with the cub. We clubbed together to buy two small Dylusions journals. We're going to create collaborative journals and we made a start on them. We'll each create pages then swap the journals when we meet. We'll both end up with a journal created together. We've decided that if a page is date stamped it means it's completed and the other person can't add anything to it, but if a page has some creation on it but no date we can add to it and even pass it back for further decoration. A page is only considered complete once it's date stamped. Here's the journal we have at the moment. It's opened on the cub's page as we don't want her to see our next creation just yet.

There's not a lot else on the desk, when the cub visited we worked in the kitchen as the desk is too small to fit both of us.

I thought you might like to see yesterday's supper too. Dinner tastes so much better when it's smiling!

I'm off for a hop around some work desks now. TTFN

With love from the bears


  1. LOL! Cute dinner - I am reminded of my German boss at a restaurant I worked at as a student. He often packaged up a sausage, new potatoes and a bit of parsley to look like....well, you can guess. But only for the ladies take-away. He'd be arrested in this day LOL!

    I love the idea of a journal exchange - esp. if you don't have to mail it. Always a risk.

    Happy WOYWW!
