"Pick a day. It could be today, could be tomorrow, could be next week. Make a list of what you do on this day. RECORD it. So next year, next month or next decade, you will be able to look back and REMEMBER what a day was TODAY was like in your life."
ok, so i started my page by doing this in a normal way. i chose a random day and wrote down everything i did......and it was so dull i fell asleep typin'. don't get me wrong: I LOVE MY LIFE! but so far no hollywood studio has offered me a multi-million-dollar option for the rights to my average day, because "run lola run" it ain't. so i focused in on the idea of a list; and then i thought, well really, you just need the VERBSto get a sense of what's being done. et voila! much better...and much shorter...and of course THAT means:
lots more room for embellishments!
which to me is always a sign i'm on the right track! as soon as i started in this direction things fell right into place. i love it when that happens.

i cannot tell you how much fun i am having with this! i mean, i truly LOVE making cards, but being able to make something however you want, as weird as you want, that maybe only you will "get" or like or understand...OOF...it's heady stuff, i tell ya! i can't wait for week 5 now, i'm onna roll, baby!!! :)
