Wreck This Journal - The Guts Part V

For those of you just tuning in, Cindy from Cindy's Love of Books came up with a great idea. She purchased Keri Smith's Wreck This Journal and invited others to join her on a journey of journaling. Her original post about the book can be found here.

This week I worked on a number of pages. We are still doing renovations around the house and some stuff around the yard now that it's nice outside, but I made sure I got some work done on the journal, too. Here's my update for week 5 of my journal wrecking adventure:

Create a nonstop line: Finished! It was torturous, but it's done.

Trace Your Hands: I liked the tracing one from last week so much I decided to do something similar. If I had given it some more thought I would have done it a little differently, but I'm happy with how it's turning out so far. It's a work in progress.

Write One Word Over and Over:I decided to take the literal approach when selecting my "word" for this page. My husband chuckled when he saw it. I just shrugged. It's me. Another work in progress.

I also worked on Cover this page with white things (found a few more items), Press leaves and other found things (not sure what to do with this yet, but found some dried up leaves outside that I set aside) and A place for your grocery lists pages (saved a few grocery lists and added them to the page). I'll include photos of these at a later date.

Links to other updates: The Beginning, Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV.

See you next Sunday for another update.

  1. great progress. I have ordered a second copy of this journal so my daughter has one for an upcoming birthday party she will be attending. She;s already told me to order several more.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
