january photo a day - canvas sale & journal

PHOTO A DAY - 24TH

it's been an absolute stinker of a day......so darned hot and humid making it very hard to feel comfortable at all. i can cope with the heat, it's the high humidity i can't stand. it totally drains me of energy. that aside, one of the highlights today was that riot's art and craft store were having a 50% off sale on gallery-wrapped canvas. i just can't say no when it comes to a great sale, especially when it's art-related so naturally, i picked up a few more canvasses for stock. YAY!


yesterday, a few readers were wondering if the journals i decorated opened out flat because of the bulky looking spine so, to answer the question, this is a pic of my blue journal that i made a while ago


and, same journal, now opened flat


well, i'm off to finish reading 'secret three' of the 12 secrets book. i hope to post more about that very soon.

  13. So, you cannot say no to sales, eh? Hehehe.

    It's amazing how that journal can open flat. I would never thought it's possible with all the embellishments on it.

  14. Lovely journal Serena! I have a fetish for notebooks but I've been restraining from buying any until I finish with the ones I have. I have a couple of friends that are into scrapbooking and have created decorative notebooks - I have 2 of them myself.

    Your pink one is lovely also.
