Here is journal #2, available here.
I recently bought this giant stack of scrapbook paper and I love all of the patterns! It will probably last a million years, haha. There are so many I want to use for the inside of the journal covers but I can't imagine making that many journals. Who knows?
Tomorrow is the pricing changeover and I'm still a little unsure about it. It seems unanimous that no one is ever really sure about it and that it's okay. There are many things I want to do, and perhaps I am a bit overwhelmed by the idea that everything could work out the way I've always wanted it to.
I really enjoyed putting this book together. Yellow and red is a popular colour combination for me.
You know, I haven't seen too many ladybugs out this year. Is it still too early?
If anyone wants to see my "Good Morning" chickadee painting in person, head on down to the "Just Birds" show next month!

I got some supplies to make five more journals. I can't wait!
I just couldn't NOT share this. Usually it feels like my sister and I have been butting heads since she first learned to speak (she's now 12), but then adorable things like this happen and then I'm all like "d'awwww!"
I opened the tightly folded piece of paper and it was a drawing of a pegasus. In the bottom corner it reads: "I bet you could draw this better!".
I can't tell if she's embarrassed, or trying to be modest... It said it was a "dare" so is she asking me to send a drawing back? I don't know.
(Tell me what you think in the comments!)
And so then she goes on to tell me that she did well in track-and-field and sent me her 3rd place ribbon.
Sent it to me.
I... I don't even know.
Maybe I'm looking too hard at this and seeing a lot of messages that aren't actually there, but it kind of feels like someone just handed me a pouch full of precious gems or something.
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
