Journal Page

It feels very good to be back into my regular routine.  Am I getting old?  I never used to love routines.  I guess I still don't love routines.  I love the time to explore and create as I choose.  My two installations are finished and the opening is tonight.  I am ever so pleased with the installations and myself!  This has been challenging for me and I definitely rose to the challenge.  I am excited to pursue more such challenges!  I am also excited to have a bit of downtime to pursue my regular stitching and journals.  Today I learned a new term, a commonplace book.  Turns out this has what I have been doing for years.  I thought I was a bit of a failed journaler but I am not alone. FromWikipedia  Commonplace books are a way to compile knowledge, usually by writing information into books. Such books are essentially scrapbooks filled with items of every kind: recipes, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures, proverbs, prayers, legal formulas.

Congratulations of your installations. It must be wonderful to have all the work behind you, and the success and fame to look forward to.
My commonplace book is a river of information!
