notebook

 Hi Everyone, still in the dumps with nothing happening with mojo, then I noticed my notebook on my desk and decided to tart it up a little.

 I measured the scrap of paper left in the paper pad and it just fitted, onto the scoring board, then a little glue to make a pocket, so that I can replace the notebook when necessary. It looked better, but needed a little more, so off to my Cameo to cut out the word and a shadow. Attached to the front and it was all done, I tell you it was finished in 10 minutes! I felt I had accomplished a lot - ah! simple minds hahahaha.

My other work today? It's my Mum's 108th birthday tomorrow (13th) so we went up to her grave to clean it up and add flowers. I love this photo of her when she was young. Seemed so strange doing it all with a mask on.

I can see you in her, Faith, she's pretty and had a very kind smile. Happy Birthday to her. My late mother's 92nd birthday is the 20th. That's a pretty clever notebook cover, sad to hear you are in a slump but truthfully I'm surprised, your work isn't showing it. XOX
