Journal reaction to Operation!


Yes to those of you who visited yesterday you will have seen a sneak peak of this and heard also that in July I am off for a Hysterectomy, not the easiest Op. but hey this is where our journal really comes in very handy. I had a wonderful time painting this and I am going to share this with Paint Party Friday 


This side of the page had a very swirly Rabbit hole, I have since painted over this with many layers, the thought's are still there, but covered up with this now. The swirls in the corners are there to represent the tumbling down the rabbit hole.


And finally poor Alice (me) who hasn't got a clue what to expect next! I share this very personal spread with you so you too can have an idea that your journal can be for any thing, light hearted, deep and personal or even just trying new stencils & paints out! Your journal is for anything you need at the time you need it. I am slowly falling in love with journalling. I was warned how addictive it could be. I haven't adapted my own style yet and I have so very much to learn. But I am loving my Journal Journey. Love Dawn xx

And for some extra news, the poll was very good idea of what people wanted to do. I am really happy that once a month I will set a wee journal challenge (more details to follow) and you can all link up and share your work with me. I really am excited about this new chapter about to take place in my life. BUT, yes there is always a but ;0) this will be for fun! no prizes, just like 'Paint Friday' this is a chance to share your journal pages with me and who ever else joins in ;0) oh and if any one can make me a little linky for my side bar so others can have it on there blog please e-mail me craftydawn@gmail.com it would be really handy to spread the word. More on this wonderful news as it develops ;0) Big Hugs Dawn xx

I hope everything comes out well with your operation...you'll be very happy after it, as I did! I had a half hysterectomy 14 yers. ago and it's been great!! Don't worry, just pray before you go into surgery, it'll be just fine! Lots of hugs. FABBY

I wish you a speedy recovery from the surgery. I've bookmarked you so I can come back for the challenges, though I haven't been working in my journal as much lately. I do miss it, though.
