One rainy day in September

Blog jug

I'm having such a cosy September evening. We were both back at work today, but we both got away early. Last night's crockpot chicken was turned into fajitas with spelt flour tortillas, red peppers stirfried with smoked garlic, and a flax-enriched tomato salsa. Immediately after dinner the rain started.

I got my first book block stitched for Julie's journalling class. We're making our own journals for the first two weeks of September and then working on the insides for the last two weeks. You can see the journals we're making here. Tomorrow I'm going to paint up some gorgeous cover papers for and bind it.

I've also been doing a class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking with Jenni Bowlin. The class is Re-think, Re-purpose, Re-invent and it's all about finally using the little bits and pieces you've picked up at flea markets and yard sales. I have a beloved stash of keys, watch parts and flashcards that I don't know how to use. I would much rather be using them than keeping them precious and shut away. One of the key things in the course is building an inspiration board and this is mine - empty for now.
