Daily Journal

I saw this post over at Aesthetic Outburst, that shows an example of keeping a daily journal.  I love how each card limits you to a few sentences to sum up the day.  (It's perfect for the busy lady).  You can get the main idea of days past on one single card......or set up the daily journal in whichever format that suits you.  I'll probably set mine up in a plain notebook and keep it near my bedside.

Happy writing,

Friday Fine (art)

I haven't done one of these in a while....
This painting catches my eye every time I see it.  Although slightly dark in subject matter for late December (aka, happy holidays), Acupuncture Pitchfork Style uses repetition in a way I find pretty brilliant.  Love the crows.

I want

I need this wrapping paper. Must recreate this exactly.  And why stop at cheeseburgers?  I imagine reubens, turkey clubs, meatball hoagies, etc.  Endless sandwiches.
