Pocket Journals

I have been working very hard on my website.  It's an incredible amount of work. Not only were there structural problems I didn't know how to deal with, but it was also years out of date.  Many of the links were broken and I had real problems with shifting pages.

Admittedly, in the past I became so frustrated that I just gave up on it.  Recently I decided that this website was not going to get the best of me and I have tackled it head on.  After days and days of hard work, It's still far from done, but I am making great progress. 

Lots of the old problems have been resolved and I have been rebuilding it from the ground up.  It probably doesn't look that way, as I have tried to maintain the overall look and feel of the original site. I liked the look when I began and I still do, so I see no need to change it.

In the meantime I have also been taking and uploading oodles of scans and photos of work I just never got around to.  That part has been kind of fun ... journals I have long since forgotten about are being pulled out again.  Much of the work looks naive compared to my work now, but it still has it's charm.

The photos shown here are from My Pocket Journal and a Pocket Tunnel Journal (which was never completed).

They were made in February of 2010 ... hard to believe I made them 5 years ago!

The rest of these little journals ...  at least little for me... can be seen on my website here.  The size of each is 4 1/2" X 5 1/2".

Hello Ingrid,
I was just about to close down my tablet, as it's nearly one thirty in the morning here, when I saw a new post notification for you blog, so I just could'n't resist a peek. Your photos of your gorgeous pocket journals are another lovely treat for us to enjoy and to be inspired by. Thank you for sharing them. I don't think they look naive at all. They are wonderful and certainly have given my iconfidence and inspiration that it is possible to make amazing altered book pages. I love visiting your blog to see your beautiful work and am truly thankful for the wonders of the Internet enabeling us to discover artists like yourself.
Warmest best wishes from across the miles here in France,
aka Luvcreatincards
