Wreck This Journal.....

Thanks for all your comments on my last post..... it seems you're keen to give it ago. Please let me know how you get on & spread the word yourself.

So back to the point....

I saw this book on a blog months ago & added it to my Amazon wish list in the hope someone would give it to me for Christmas..... nope!
A couple of weeks ago my online buddie Lorna did a post about
She was also kind enough to give me a shout when it was back in stock @ amazon.

So it arrived on Tuesday & has been sat on the sofa ever since..... I did have a look & I must say I'm feeling nervous about it! 
The reason being I'm a Virgo! I've never wrecked a book in my life..... never broken a spine on a book..... never fold down the corners of the pages..... never written in a book. I have to use the same pen in my diary & if it runs out half way through I get most upset! 

How will I cope???? 
I thought this would do me good....... I drive everyone mad, including myself!
I'm going to let myself go.... go crazy...... rip the pages out..... draw all over it....

but take it in the shower???? ooohhh I'm not sure!!

The first thing I'm going to do is post it to myself........ just in case it gets lost!
So it's back on the sofa tapped up with reindeer tape waiting for it's trip to the post office tomorrow.

That's the easy one done...... I'll keep you update!

Have a good week


  1. I know what you mean by not wanting to *wreck* it but I'm working my way through it slowly, very slowly!

  3. Oooh, yay u got one! Thanks for the blog link!

    You will enjoy it I'm sure. My reasoning for putting it in the shower first was similar to u posting it first, I didn't want to ruin all my hard work! Although I Havnt posted mine yet, I am nervous about that one!


  4. I can't wait to see how you get on with it! :)

  5. ha that sounds like fun!! I'm not a virgo, but I am the same re books, I hate it when they get marked or mussed and people who turn down the corners drive me mental!! Doing A level English where we *had* to annotate the books for exams was like torture!!

  6. Hi there! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for following my humble wafflings :)

    Also - the cherries that are on your blog - do you sell that? I would love to have that as a brooch? I did have a look at your shop - but could not see it - and the link to Folksy is down :( Let me know if you can :) I love them!

  7. I bought Marcus my cousin a journal for christmas and he loves it!! It kept him quiet for ages!!! HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!
