My back and neck are still stiff and sore from my "Hair" incident on Thursday - I liken it to being in a car accident. How long does whiplash last, anyway?
One funny thing that happened was that my friend, B., had made some hand-bound books and left them in storage at her mother's house. Her mother wrapped them up this year and gave them to B.'s partner. They didn't really have anything to use them for, so they gifted them to me, along with a beautiful red, yellow and pink scarf (photos of the scarf later - it is beautiful).
I knew immediately that I would use the new journal for a starting place this year. I have been looking for a way into art journaling again. I have struggled so hard to get back to it - wanting to, feeling the weight of perfection and expectation from myself. I decided to join the Art Journal Every Day Challenge/Project and this is perfect for a start.
I can't sit and look down too long, so I only worked for about 35 minutes tonight, but here is the cover of my first 2011 journal (I will have several, I'm sure.

Happy New Year, everyone! I'm looking forward to 2011! Many good things are headed our way. I can't wait!
