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

September came and went...

and during the month i was extremely slack in doing my journal page - so slack in fact, although I had started the background way back in August, it wasn't until towards the end of the month I finished it but there was no sign of any daily entries. I really didn't want to fall even before I got to the last hurdle of Kate's calendar journal challenge, so I decided to just do a few 'highlights' of the month. Not that September had many highlights but that's another story!

So here it is in its very humble state (although I do love the background, so maybe its karma that there arent too many words covering it up!)

The old mojo has disappeared but I am hoping to find it again soon, so I hopefully wont leave it too long again before I am back sharing some old tat

I will leave you with a thought though...

When life gives you lemons, make Lemonade..... and PUT VODKA IN IT!
