I have got rid of my blockage!

/I had a mental blockage regarding how my journal would progress, and didn't really have a 'theme' - and did not know how on earth I was going to fill all the pages.

Mowing the lawns must have done something to me, because this afternoon, working in a very hot garden studio - I suddenly worked out what to do.
It will all take place in the 1800/1900's

It is going to be based on a story which I will write 'around' the pages as they unfold.

A story about two friends

A tragedy

And it features Kate - and a french man, and someone else!

So far that is!

I love your theme and a story of such intrigue.

It looks very feminine and the burning adds to the story.
...A journal almost destroyed in a fire and then miraculously re-discovered?

Fabulous ! I'm so glad you were inspired .
Your comment made me smile - my blog The Hen House started before The Linen Shelf - when I wanted to start a Blog but thought, " Who would want to read about me ? " So as I was gettin hens I thought I'd write about it. In reality it has little to do with hens - it's chat & fun -
Then I was inspired by all the wonderful crafting Blogs to start getting back to art myself but wanted to keep it seperate so I started the second blog.
