My travel journal is growing in size. Love it when the edges start hinting at the fun going on inside. Since last posting, I've spent a lot of time working on it. I'm trying to keep my focus on finishing this one book, but of course, as soon as that happens, a million other to dos pop up, as well as other interests (non to dos, want tos). But I'm giving it a good effort.
Like I said before, what it's really doing is getting me super excited for the Bellissimo Viaggio Italia journaling class I'm co-teaching in Italy late September of 2014, where we are working on it daily, at the same time we're experiencing the trip. Lots of ideas coming at warp speed about supplies to provide the students with, as well as construction of the book, and the daily journey we'll be having itself. So good!
Anyway, here are some new pages or pages that you've seen but have been added to:
it's not a "giant duck" as my son has called geese since little, it's really a goose. this goose really does look like a duck...not sure if it quacks like one though ;)
to know me is to know that i love crepe paper, like , am crazy for it, so i was super delighted to find a few rolls that were different textures than the american and italian brands i have bought before.
still going to make some notes on the left side, but think i'll ask my husband to, so his thoughts and writing will be in the book too.
the giant photo page, always a favorite.
what's a travel journal without a map, right?
That's as far as I've gotten as of right now, but I hope to have more to show you (like the completed journal ?!?) soon!
One thing I have been thinking about, is how much I want this to be in chronological sequence, vs. other type journals I keep. I've also been thinking about the fact that my Project Life spread of this trip will likely have some photos that are the same, but mostly be totally different. I love that. This journal is more about our experience and thoughts, the country we're seeing, and documenting the travels/sights etc. whereas I assume my Project Life spread about this trip will be more photos of us, in Spain. I think. We'll see...
Have a good rest of the weekend! I'll be here, doing this, and loving every minute of it. Certainly brings the experience, thoughts, feelings from the trip flooding back, so really, I'll be here and in Spain for the rest of my day, just without the travel ;).
