Well, this week has become a blurr !  I spent Tuesday afternoon at the dentist having a root canal on a tooth he had crowned sometime ago, so that meant removing the crown and doing the root canal, then replacing the crown. UGH!  Two hours later, with half my face still numb, I headed for home. 
The tooth is still touchy, but the pain is starting to subside.....this was a tough root canal. That left me feeling a little "off" my usual self yesterday, not really feeling like doing much of I just pittled around at my desk and visited around Blogland.
This is where it led me too, and I just got up and left it last night.  I just took these photos and didn't even bother to edit them...I didn't even turn on the Ott lights...LOL!

I decided to do a little re-creating in this journal I made, and have used from time to time.  I usually keep it by the bed and write in it when I feel the need.  Then, yesterday, I visited Monica at Material Pleasures blog, and she was sharing her journals........quite beautifully done.  She also shared a link to
Art to the 5th Academy I went over and checked it out.  You can join for FREE and once your accepted your can view free tutorials, or pay for workshops and in depth tutorial.  Great bunch of artist and a lot of inspiration.  I haven't quite gotten the knack of the "whole" thing, but gleamed enough to re-create this journal.

Bottle tag/cards......trying to get the layout the way I want it.  I'm not sure, but I may have made a mistake in donating some hand painted cards to my women's group this month. Now one of them has requested something for the holidays.  Most people buy their cards, and I'm not sure of all the religions,  so I was thinking of something different.  A set of bottle tags that are also cards, I hate trying to tape a card to a bottle, of any kind.  So I'm figuring one for Thanksgiving, two for Christmas ( keeping it to general holiday designs), one for New Years and maybe one for a thank you gift. 
Your thoughts?
Must dash.......need to put sheets in the drier,  and get ready to head to town.....The next two days are going to be busy ones so I need to get a head start today.  First stop will be the car wash so I can see where I am going....LOL!

  1. Sorry to hear about the root canal, I had that last year and it was hard, so I feel for you! Love the recreated journal, enjoy the group you have joined. The bottle cards are great idea. Have a great da, hope your tooth stays quiet! Hugs, Valerie

  2. By now you should be recovered from the root canal. I hope the pain has gone, too.

    I never could get into the Documented Life Project, but I'll go check it out, anyway. Thanks for the heads up and the link. Hope by now you can see out your car window (grin).

  3. Oh root canals aren't fun. Hope you're feeling better today. I also had one recently.

    Your journal page looks lovely. That's something I plan on trying but never seem to have time to get started. Sounds as if you have some head scratching to do with ideas for the holiday projects. I'm sure you'll come up with something wonderful. Have a lovely weekend. Barbxx

  4. Hope you have recovered from the dental work by now. I'm looking forward to what you come up with for the holiday cards and/or bottle tags.

  5. Hope you have recovered from the dental work by now. I'm looking forward to what you come up with for the holiday cards and/or bottle tags.
