is everyone getting into the holiday groove? it's on us. ican not believe that i didn't even get a halloween journal out, well i am still going to create one, it's my favorite type; well actually i do like the the journey journals and the beach ones are fun. hmmm i guess i like them all. i have to say though, papers that inspire me are getting harder to find. i can't take orders anymore because i can't be sure that i will find the right papers, i am hoping that will change, geesh.
i have one more journal to share, it's western themed -yee hah! so i'll say adios. be back in a flash, gordon. oops could be dating myself there.
