How awesome it is to finish a journal...

Dymphie said...

i agree with Martha, all pages in a video would be lovely. So great you filled this one completely!

Mary said...

Yay Lori!! Good for you. You know there are always a few unfinished pages in my journals...don't know why. I love your orange journal, and your handwriting is beautiful Lori.

Yes, I would say it's chocolate time for sure!!

Pat said...

Congratulations on finishing your beautiful journal! Since I have one finished journal under my belt and multitudes of unfinished journals, I know what a good feeling that is. I've decided that, for me, it's better to work consecutively page by page rather than to keep hopping and jumping around. And before starting a new page, I like to start at the beginning of the journal and look at each completed page again. It's a nice sense of accomplishment.

I know what you mean. I have journals and sketchbooks and notepads all filled halfway. Nothing ever gets "done." Kuddos to you!

Tess said...

Wonderful colors, oh how I've missed you. I get a new computer for Christmas, Yeahhh! Mine is so old and freezes up so much I have gotten to where I don't even like to try any more. It let me in today so I am visiting a few favorite people, you ate one!!

It amazes me how many times I find words on other blogs that tug at my heart for current things going on in my life. Thank you for these inspirational and encouraging words and for the brightness of your charming page!!

crystal said...

I must tell you, Lori, that I've never been an orange person until I met you! I have been following along as you worked on this journal, and the bright and happy orange/yellow/golden/peachy goodness of your palette has continually brought a broad smile and an instant feeling of, well, cheerfulness!!! Thank you!

xo :-)

Beedeebabee said...

Yippee! Oh, Martha is so right, Lori! You need to show us the whole thing in a video. I'd sooo love that...we all would! vi-de-o!vi-de-o!

... See, I can be a real riot instigator when I want to be!

Love this, Lori!!!

xoxo Paulette :)
