A few months ago two of my blogging friends, LaVerne and Nancy, tossed out the idea of doing an art journal. The theme was to be "favorite quotes" from Downton Abbey.
Well, since I LOVED that TV series, I jumped right on board.
I thought about it a lot . . .looked up various quotes on the computer. . .thought about it some more. . .looked and looked and looked at a zillion Downton Abbey pictures on Pinterest (and other websites). . . became confused. . . FINALLY decided on a quote. . .BUT THEN I couldn't figure out how to illustrate it. . .and JUST WHEN I GOT IT ALL GOING.....bam.....I had a car wreck and my life totally went another direction.
If you know how disruptive a wreck is, you know what I did for the next week and a half.
I was rear ended while sitting, with my blinker on, waiting to make a left turn.
My van was totaled. While it was older, it was low mileage. It was also the perfect vehicle for my lifestyle.
I was a mental mess. . .basically mourning the loss of my beloved van. Nothing could replace what it meant to me. However, it had to be replaced and once another ride was secured, I returned to the Downton Project, even though my mental creativity was fried at that at that point.
Yesterday, I finally finished all 20 of my pages . It was such a relief to box them up and get them mailed off.
Now, Nancy and LaVerne have the huge task of assembling all of our pages between the amazing book covers they designed and created!! They are true artists .
THE STONE RABBIT is really glad I decided to join in on this Downton Abbey project. . . however, he told me that NEXT time he won't let me put off my start on such a time consuming endeavor. He's lived with me for a very long time and knows that I am a world class procrastinator. . .(shhhhh.....it's also not likely that I will change, either. )
We hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and a very happy Pink Saturday!!
