Having a Wild time!

I discovered Effy Wild.  I have no idea how this woman has escaped my notice up til now.

Effy is running a year long journalling class called Book of Days - it is free, but more importantly it is TOTALLY AMAZING.

I'm a little bit behind with this project because the heating workmen interrupted the flow of my creative juices, but actually I should thank them - not only for a nice warm house (yay!) but because they made me clear out a whole bunch of cupboards.  And in the process of clearing out the cupboards, I found a book I thought I had lost.  A great big badass book for Fairy Stories that my parents gave me for Christmas when I was about 7.  I treasured this book when I was younger, leafing through the pages, devouring the words and pictures.  I thought I had lost the book forever in the moves I've made across seas and continents and from house to house, and I was so excited to find it in one of these cupboards!  I knew straight away that I would use it for this project ... although I did have a bit of a wobble when it came to actually tearing out some of the pages.  I know some people will wonder how I could do such a thing to a treasured book, but by doing Book of Days I will transform this treasured book into something even more precious - it will hold the memories from when I was 7 as well as holding a documentation of the year I turned 40.

So here is what I've done so far:

The front and back cover - I might add to this ...:

I'm so loving this project.  If you haven't checked out Effy's work before, get over there RIGHT NOW!!!
