I found a whole other stash of hand made paper to use in it. I may have enough for two raw books. All the better because I have a lot of ideas for covers. I spent most of my free time last night looking at smash book and art journal covers. I have less of a clue as to what I'm going to put into these books. I have some ideas of painting experiments on the handmade paper and collages and paint on the pre-printed paper I plan on using. And a rough thought of making one about mental illness. All the journals I see are about travel or God or joy or bliss or things to do or some such shit. I was thinking of something more "real".
AAAGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Total cat mommy freakout! The swelling in Simon's face, of course was a huge pocket of pus and blood and it burst and drained through his eye just now. He let me blot off the drippy stuff and clean out his eye, but tried to kill me when i got down to cleaning off his fur. so half his face is all matted with blood. call animal control on me now. he's in a much better mood, though. he's laying in his favorite spot in the hallway, not hiding in my bedroom. he's eaten two cans of food today. he will probably lose vision in that eye. this sucks.
my tooth is infected again. i don't even want to talk about it. my face isn't matted with blood. i don't even care. ouch or whatever.
