Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Absence makes the Heart grow fonder..

OK I gave in, no longer could I watch Mst WTJ hanging from the tree outside the window, I was missing him too much and I think he took my mojo outside with him just to get his own back at me - I have been popping into my craftroom now and then in the last couple of days, sat down to do something and............... nothing, fiddled and faffed and got somethings out, looked through a few drawers, tidied (yep you read that correctly!!) a few shelves but nope I couldn't find my mojo anywhere, all I could see was a tantalising glimpse of WTF out of the corner of my eye...... So I braved the inclement conditions and rescued him.

Think he was pleased to be inside albeit a little bit on the damp side!

 Breaking number 5 of my New Years Resolutions I was eager to get playing again, so I dried off this page  and got out my pens..

The first thing I ever did with this book was to crack the spine, but I didnt to anything to the page until today - I think WTJ needs cheering up since he was abandoned during the week - just as well he doesn't know the number for 'Journal-Line'

We had a collection of candles on the fireplace, left over form Christmas, they decided to dribble wax all over the hearth, so I had put my book with them .... DD was horrified that the 'Leave this page Blank' page was no longer blank - she has always been very 'black and white' in her thoughts and a stickler for rules, I was hoping that this exercise would teach her to challenge things but it seems I have some way to go!

  6. Glad to see that the mojo-sucking one has survived his arborial vacation. Love the crack in the page, and absolutely love, as ever, the latest update. Do you think that if I hung a WTJ in my tree, I might actually start tidying up ???
