I am in desperate need of some bright colours at the moment so here is another page from my Teesha Moore inspired journal. The image of the pig and the ‘Who says pigs can’t fly’ slogan were cut out of a ‘pigalogue’ I received at work. There is a company is called Pig, they sell spill kits and absorbant materials, they list all their products in a pigalogue instead of a catalogue – I love that. The little pig has been sitting on my desk for weeks just waiting for the right time to appear in a piece of art. And this was the page I made especially for him!
I am really fond of pigs in fact for years I tried to persaude my husband to let me have a pet pig, but he argued that a pig would a) grow far too big and b) would dig up his garden. Both of which I’m sure are true. So I have two cats instead, my Bengal Boys, Bill and Jack, and I’m totally besotted by them. I suppose you couldn’t really have a pig sleeping on the bed with you could you? Or could you!? Well maybe if he took a bath first…
So anyway my week has been a tad on the grey and boring side so far, but I’ve been trying to look at all the positives and one BIG positive for me is how much I love this style of journaling. When my day got so dull I just wanted to bang my head against the desk, I got out my journal, looked through it and thought ‘Now that’s not dull, that’s really bright and juicy, and I did it ‘! It’s such a shame I can’t actuallty do any art while I’m at work, but looking at my journal lifts my spirits anyway.
I shouldn’t really involve myself in other people’s politics but I have to admit that when I heard the news this morning that Obama had been re-elected that brought a smile to my face too. I feared that the alternative would have been such bad news for the US and the world.
Well I hope you are all having a great week, I am going to give myself a good talking to and ensure I enjoy the rest of mine.
See you soon
