When my computer died over a month ago, I needed to find something to fill the aching hole it left in my heart. Rick's laptop just wasn't the same, with its touchpad mouse and its Internet Explorer. So I turned to my art journal, sometimes creating 4 pages in a single day. Thankfully, I was almost a year behind on the prompts from A Year in the Life of an Art Journal, so I had a lot to keep me busy.
Now I've grown much more attached to Rick's laptop, having downloaded both Picasa and Firefox to his hard drive (easy to remove once I get a computer or laptop to call my own) to make the adjustment bearable. I've also figured out how to upload new pictures, and all I have left to learn is how to access our scanner without my poor deceased desktop PC. I'm sure I can do it, I only lack the motivation to teach myself at the moment. (I inherited my procrastination from my father, and my ability to blame other people for my shortcomings from my mother. It's a nice balance.)
So until then, here are a few of the art journal pages I completed during my time of transition, photographed instead of scanned, for your viewing pleasure. These are my favorites...you can see the rest on my Flickr page. Hope you have a great Memorial Day! :)
