This is my third week of keeping TWO grandchildren two and a half days a week. Bobby will be 3 in September, and Patrick (or Butterbean as I affectionately call him) is almost 4 months old. I definitely know why God's plan is for young women to have the babies. It is hard work, but I am getting into the swing of it now. I am not as wiped out tonight as I have been on other nights after they have gone home. I am preciously guarding the days they are not here, hoping to use them for art and sewing. Fortunately, I am participating in a fairly easy project that came together pretty quickly. It is for my Painted Page group, and the assignment is to create 2 journal pages — the backgrounds, that is. Andi will take everyone's pages and assemble them into a book. When we receive our books, we can then journal on the pages. Here are my backgrounds.
I confess that I am not much of a journaler. I have started art and writing journals before, only to abandon them shortly thereafter. I'm hoping that having all these pretty backgrounds prepared by my friends will inspire me.
