Thanks so much for doing this Mary! Your book is amazing, and how fun that your friends have contributed! By the way, I got all three of your comments from youtube, so who's the funny one now? lol I do know that "next year" is only three weeks away but if I say it that way I have lots more time to think of adding another project! ha
I do have a question please? Did you remove pages from this book before you started? How did you pick your book? Okay, I had two questions and I may have more! Thanks again Mary! :o)

I meant to send just one youtube comment, but then I realized I sent all three, oh well, once you send it out, it's gone forever, right?

First I acquired the books from yards sales, thrift shops, etc. Any old hardcover book will do. Then I went through the book and glued 3 to 4 pages together. At that point I started working in the book like you saw in the video. We also swapped our books with each other as you also saw.

I would really like to finish mine. Have you seen the videos from friday eudaemonism. Here's her blog http://fridayeudaemonism.blogspot.com/ I love how she makes working in her journals look so easy. It's a fun way to use up stuff. Along with scrapbooking, I've always enjoyed the arts, mostly mixed media. Hope this helps. Would love to see you try this, I think you'll really like it.
