Wreck This Journal – Week 8!

Wow! These two months are just flying by … Soon we will be saying goodbye to Sunny Days of Summer – and I am not ready for that yet! Are you ready to get back into the swing of a new school year? The good news is, my husband has found a one year position at our local state university and HIS school year has started this week! The girls and I have a few more weeks to play before buckling down to another year of school.

This past week in the Wrecking adventure hosted by Jamie Ridler,  I did tackle some of the ‘writing’ pages. Thanks ladies for the encouragement! I filled the ‘Internal Monologue’ pages with small print and won’t share it because it is after all my own personal thoughts. ;-)   I also filled the ANGRY page with a weird happening that involved a very ballistic person directing his anger at innocent by standers! (My daughter and Me!) And I have a few pages that friends helped with. Butch scratched ever so lightly on the ‘scratch with a sharp item page’. His last name is Rose and he scratched a very pretty rose on it, but it does not show up enough to share in a photo. And he left an ‘X’ mark cut in the ‘friend destruction page’  and Marsha ripped a corner off that page. Tee hee! Thanks my dear friends!

I received Kim’s lovely white pages filled with lace and trims and buttons and pebbles and other such items. It is a very pretty page! Thank you Kim – I think it is happy in its new journal home!


So what have I learned through this experience? I think the biggest thing was to just let go and have fun with this whole experience. I did step out of the comfort zone a bit. I found it fascinating how the friends I shared the journal with would just jump in and wreck away! (Altho some thought me a bit strange! You know the type who would never ever damage a book!? They watched, shaking their heads as the others wrecked!)

And I have so liked checking in on what all my fellow wreckers have been doing to their journals! I think I have visited each website – sorry that I did not leave a comment on each one. But I enjoyed each visit!

Happy wrecking ladies!

    Hi! I followed your comment link from Calamity Kim. This is so cool and coincidental! Kim and I have been mailing this very journal back and forth for some time now. Her white page is breathtaking. Isn’t collaborative/trading art fun? ;)

    Isn’t it interesting how every person brings a totally unique take on the book??? I have really enjoyed visiting everyone’s pages too. Just amazing what we have all done. I can’t believe it’s almost two months, either. KEEP ON WRECKING!!!!!!!!!

    I’m so sorry to hear about the incident with your neighbor – so sad when they involve the children, too! On a brighter note – how blessed you are to have friends who jump into the wrecking with you!! Sometimes it’s even fun to watch the ones shaking their heads!

    Congratulations to your husband & his new job!

    Thanks for swapping pages with me (I love your colorful circles) and for all the wrecking fun!

    I loved visiting all your sites too. Though don’t talk about it being the end of summer yet :( . In the UK schools don’t go back until September. They only broke up a week ago. I still have to complete most of the written ones too – I guess I do enough writing on my blog and have left the journal for getting messy and sticky. I’ll try and do them this week

    Lovely wrecking! I can’t believe it has gone by so fast!

    I’m getting ready to do my ANGRY page…I kept thinking, I don’t really get angry so this one will be hard, but I finally have something to write about…thanks for the reminder. :)

    Enjoy the last week! Thanks so much for visiting and supporting your fellow wreckers!

    Hi, thanks for stopping by to my blog.
    Wow, you have shared so interesting story here…Love it the idea to have a journal book like this. Maybe should try to have anger pages for my own and learn to let it go, just like you. thanks!

    Great wrecking! I’m so glad to hear that your friends got involved, too.
