oh, to circle

one of the busiest weeks of this year, and what am i doing? designing the inside cover to my circle journal project that's due to be mailed next week.

a scrappy girl's gotta have her priorities.

so excited for gals. i know only two - andrea and dana - so far. the fabulous thing is that through the beauty of blogging, i have started to get to know the others, if only virtually.

each of us picked a theme for our own books, and each week for the next seven weeks, we will complete a page for the circle journal we receive in the mail, and pass it along. when the cycle is finished, we will each have our original journal back - full of pages made by each of the gals, in our theme.

the themes...
  • andrea, beaverton, oregon - top 5
  • claudine, beaverton, oregon - good things
  • samantha, wheaton, illinois - happiness
  • dana, west linn, oregon - inspire
  • me, the thriving metropolis of tacoma, washington - who am i
  • andi, bellingham, washington - small joys
  • jaclyn, gresham, oregon - quotes
my pages, for everyone's books, will be done using my super fabulous photoshop cs2, and i'm guessing i will be the only multimedia geek of the bunch. it will be fun, though, to have actual layered paper and embellishments in my hands again when i see their pages.

and my favorite moment of the evening... 60% of the way into printing 300 wedding programs...

"shel? i think there's a misspelling on the cover."

lots going on tomorrow...meeting with clients, finishing the covers to the programs (with the latin double-checked before going to print) going to judy's celebration of life, picking up my cousin who i haven't seen in 5 years, packing up for the wedding, and heading to bellingham for mikey's wedding in just three short days!!
