Round Robin Journal……

I forgot to take photos of the two spreads I did in my round robin journal before sending it on to Danielle.  Danielle sent me the photos via email, so, I’m sharing those now.  If you didn’t read about the details of the round robin journal group, see the February 27th post.  I completed two spreads for Janet’s journal and  sent it out to Andria on Monday.  I will be posting those photos soon.
We went to Mountain Home yesterday. It’s a one hour drive.   Our two main reasons for going were: drop off donation at Good Will and go by the Hyla Vacuum Center.  The Hyla store was closed….not closed….but gone.  We found out after we drove back home that they are still in business at a different location….we didn’t get that memo.  Our donation at Good Will was some old LP Albums.  My DH collects them.  His sister recently ran across some old albums at an auction….five boxes for $3.  He was over the moon about that deal.  He went through them very carefully, weeding out those he didn’t want to keep.  All the albums had previously been owned by one person.  He had numbered them and even wrote where he had purchased the albums.  We talked about the fact that it was sad to break up the guy’s collection but we couldn’t keep them all.  The earliest album dated back to the 1950’s.   The old guy wasn’t into rock and roll….mostly blues, jazz and big band sounds.  He did have some albums that hubby discarded that he referred to as “1,000 and one gooey strings” or what some would call “elevator music.” 😀  We both like the unique sound of vinyl.  After years of listening to cassettes and CD’s, we are enjoying  lots of nostalgic tunes on vinyl.

Here are the two spreads from my round robin journal:

    VERY, very nicely done, Mary! Those colorful blossoms are sure looking good right about now! I wonder if the lady in your third image is responsible for their care (I suspect she just might have a green thumb)! 🙂

    You have such wonderful creativity! I’ve seen you linked to on Andria and Tammy’s blogs, so I had to come over! Looking forward to seeing more of your work. 🙂
