WOYWW

It's Wednesday again at WOYWW! I missed last Wednesday, the weeks are flying by as Summer is coming into full swing! I have been playing with Journals and basically just started to messy up my desk area again after cleaning up Monday. Check out Julia's place for more detective desk work, you'll probably find some pretty interesting things going on!

 This is how the journal cover has turned out. I was inspired to make this journal cover by a friend who told me that she felt like a "plain Jane" in her life and she didn't feel like she had anything to offer that would inspire anyone. I let her know right off the wonky bat that she inspires me to the moon and back and is one of the most interesting people I have ever met. I only wish I had her brain and compassion and the interesting facts that she knows,which is just about everything on the planet. So for my "plain Jane" friend as she calls herself, this was inspired by her. I left the background cover plain and when it is filled with all my colorful artwork and words, it will never be as interesting or as inspiring as this girl! We all have gifts to bring to the table and I am the lucky one to be called her friend!
The words on it say: "Awake with the nightingales on the fringes of Bohemia, in the still before the dawn. A dusting of flowers and sugar... Everyone knows that Plain Janes are the most unique, fascinating creatures on the face of the planet".
 
Happy Wednesday YA'LL!
 XO

  1. A lovely tribute to your friendship, Kim. I do trust your friend soon discovers for herself that she is not dull and has nothing to contribute. A lovely colourful cover. Well done.
    Take care. God bless.

  5. Great journal cover. No one is really ever a plain Jane, though sometimes we feel that way. Your friend is lucky to have you!
    Have a great day.

    1. Thank you Diane and yes, we all have those moments. It's a terrible thing we do when we compare ourselves to others. You can't compare a one of kind!!
      Thank you for coming by to comment. I am late this week, well for everything! :)
