Bring on the JUNK!

Avery's Journal

I recently stumbled upon the concept of Junk or Junque Journaling.
Basic concept: Fill your sketchbook with random "junk", the more the better!
The themes for junk journals are endless. Some make collage book about special memories, or things they dream about. For others it's all about total destructions with topics like "Place sticky things here". if you need ideas to keep you going you might be interested in the sketchbook Wreck this Journal. I think this book would be a great way for young artist to explore new ideas and mediums. I think I'm going to get one myself and make it a group activity with my future foster kids. Yes, if you don't read my ittybittybirdy blog - my husband and I are going to be foster parents soon! If you are not into journals or don't think your are an artist try to think about your own scrap-booking and how random "junk" might transform it.

Retro*Kitschy*Fun **NEW** Etsy Fridays

I really am terribly humiliated by my pathetic blogging this past year.I let this blog fall to the waist side and for that I apologize.

I've been contemplating writing a goodbye post but I can't even seem to get that done.I love the idea of this blog, and so must you because within such a short period of time and with so few post there are so many of you! So I'm going to give it one more go and see if I can't get my little butt in gear.I think having some schedule will help, and so my first new blog topic

is Etsy Fridays
