Dandelion Moments


Dandelion Moments- A Book of Today
I have days where I just seem to be treading water and not doing anything much of anything.It's a fight for the computer with teenagers ,on the weekend, and unfortunately we are still on dial-up.
So today was one of those days. So in the spirit of Keri Smith's Wish Jar Journal I made myself do something- where I didn't have to be in my room where said teenagers are commandeering the computer. So I sat outside and made this little book of nothing really- just things I did today. it's an A3 sheet folded in half horizontally- with a split cut along that fold that spreads over the two middle pages and then folded into four on the vertical.It makes a dinky little book- and is loads of fun for kids. I used to draw the cartoon halo( surround) shapes for them to draw in.

I did plug away at my Nanorwrimo novel but then hit a wall of no words.Posted by Picasa

I remember making little books like this when my kids were small. Thanks for the memory. I might even follow your example and make one to write in for those odd moments in dream land!

I love that you took such an everyday thing as a dandilion and what you did today to transform it into such a fascinating little book. Cheers Claire
