A little "me" on the page

Here is one of those journals I'd been making in the craftroom last week.  I seem to be able to finish two at a time.  I just love making them.  Inside they are lined blank book pages.  Just lovely.

Well... it's Saturday afternoon already-- how did that happen?  I slept in, til 5:30 this morning, got up, made the coffe, went back over some of the Planet You stuff, took three phone calls on the art workshop I'm teaching in October, got my little one up... oh... yeah, that's where the time went.  I do all this stuff with a four year old.   I love my little lad dearly but I so often forget to budget his needs for my time into my time.    I spent most of the morning slamming back coffee and writing the new Planet You workshop, Burn This Book.  If you know me via facebook, or you've taken Planet You, then you've probably heard me talk about Burn this Book.  The new workshop will start on Saturday October 7th.  It will also be a three week class and includes a handmade book tutorial.  The book for this class is really easy (and inexpensive) to make and though in this course, we use it as a journal, it can be easily adapted and embellished to use as a scrapbook or memory album.  Unlike the first Planet You class, Burn This Book is target specific in getting your "junk" on the page, and then, yes, into the fire.  In this workshop, we'll talk about the things we carry in our hearts that we no longer want or need, why they are there and how to get them out.  You'll focus on just one of those things for the three week session and there will be weekly chats where you can talk directly with me and your fellow workshop participants about your process, your progress and your project and any thing else you might want to talk about!   Though writing Planet You wasn't that long ago, I had forgotten how much "me" goes into the writing.  I am so very excited about Burn This Book, but also exhausted.   Registration for Burn This Book is open at Planet You , and course kits will be available at the Planet You Shop  by the 21st.  Course kits are not required but it will put the supplies for the book making part of the corse in your hands... all you will need is your adhesive of choice.    If you haven't signed up for the Planet You newsletter, there is a link to the right.  the newsletter will be biweekly and fill you in on the latest news, special discounts and promotions and any other good stuff!  See you here and in the classroom.
Make something beautiful with your heart and your hands,
