A Container For My Dreams

Dear Bumper Story Book For Girls

When I purchased you from Rebound Books many years ago I knew that one day you would be the perfect book for a very special project.

I have been wanting to do some art journalling for the longest time and now that I have the amazingly big dream to work on it needs a special place to call home.

I look forward to filling your pages with all manner of dreams and wild imaginings, planning and scheming, and perhaps a splash of heartfelt desire. Not to mention lavish amounts of paint, paper, glue, ribbon, words and pictures.

Thank you for offering yourself up to me as an Art Journal. I promise to fill you with hope and truth, colour and meaning.

Your artful friend


  1. You are a woman of mystery...

  2. Mmmm....intriguing as always! Listened to my new CD today for the first time. Loved some of those 80's tunes and we laughed as some brought back some funny memories. Thanks again!

  3. I think you'll have lots of inspired fun playing around with that art journal... what a wonderful use for a rebound book.

  4. Oh, I'm about to write a love story post to my art journal too. I totally get where you're coming from!

  5. for a moment there i thought you meant you were using it for the Artful Journey book class!!

    i like what you've done with the cover and i love the color spectrum (aka rainbows)

    can't wait to see the plans you are making!

  6. what a lucky book!
