I know I've been MIA lately but I'm still here. I spent the beginning of the year in Australia (my first piece on the left which I've already talked about). I was also there for the month of February where I was forced to take a good look at myself and my family & what everything means (the reason for the glasses & the mirror. Hard to see but there is a picture of my family in the picture frame).
My March piece is not completed yet but will be soon. I'm incorporating buttons I made with my Dad while in Australia.
The final piece on the right is for April. I was in Hong Kong for this money where I turned 50! Where have the years gone. I used an opal to represent each person in my family - a precious stone for my precious family.
I decided to sew my pieces to an ultra suede band that slips over the front cover of my journal. Seems to work the best. I have been writing for the month in these journals. Unfortunately they have ended up being extremely personal (something I didn't expect) so I won't be showing those pages :)
