Thursday Journal with Neet

' Some days I rely heavily on coffee and my ability to ignore reality' are the words from Tim Holtz snarky sayings for this week. We are on a new list so will give us some more scope for our stories. As I am linking this to Alisons theme of 'Come fly with me on Art Journal Journey this month, I have some insects flying around the room. As I will be away next week I doubt whether I will be able to link it to the new theme as I have no idea what it will be. I will do the journal page but might be unable to link it to the theme.

Sheila and her friend Jenny are at her new flat, and Jenny is finding it difficult to take in the fact that Sheila has hardly done a thing since she moved in, the place was a mess. Lots of boxes stacked in various rooms and no visible sign of food to eat. The whole place now needed a clean and sort out. Jenny had offered to help but Sheila didn't seem overly bothered about the fact that there were insects flying around the room and a cat who didn't seem very bothered either. Jenny tried tactfully as she could to try and get Sheila to do something but the only response she received was Sheila saying "Some days I rely heavily on coffee and my ability to ignore reality. That was obviously one of those days.

This story was vaguely based on the fact that I have spent the last six days helping my youngest daughter do a self move to their new house, with professional help to just move the furniture. I don't want to see bubble wrap and boxes for a while. The fact that she is not very organised left a lot for me to do, I have moved so many times that I am virtually a professional. ( That's what she was telling the neighbours)

Tag Tuesday - Mermaids/merpeople

 Michele's theme on Tag Tuesday is Mermaids/Merpeople and I have made one with a somewhat buxom mermaid. I have used die cots and some texture on the base.

A rushed journal page this week, last minute again. The words this week are 'Listen before I had my coffee I didn't know how awesome I was going to be today either' Grace was telling her friend Anne how she had been planting her garden to encourage the bees and butterflies. It was all doing so well and she hadn't realised how many different types of bees there were, and had been studying them on the internet. She was so thrilled that she was going try to draw some of the different types. After listening to her for what seemed like an hour,  Anne said " Listen before I had my coffee I didn't know how awesome I was going to be either"

 The words this time are 'I'm not childish, you're just a big doody head' Not sure what a doody head is but I assume is someones who is annoying. Biddy certainly is. She and her little sister are going on holiday with their parents and have been told by their mum to wear something sensible for the trip to the holiday destination. Always one to do what she wanted and wear things that are a bit way out Biddy had gone to Amy's room to see if she was ready. Seeing the outfit Biddy was wearing she started telling her just what she thought of her choice, and saying that they should do as their mother said. Biddy retaliated and said she was being childish and told her to be herself and not do what everyone else thought she should do. " I'm not childish, you're just a big doody head" said Amy.

Alisons theme on Art Journal Journey is 'Come fly with me' so I have put some butterflies on the wall of Amy's room.

 The saying this week is 'Today was going great until...people. Tom, Missy, and their daughter Kitty were in their back garden keeping an eye on two little blue birds that were a potential dinner item. They were trying to teach Kitty how to sneak up on the birds and then make a quick pounce. Kitty was doing really well and they were very proud of her. Unfortunately next door lived Butch a very miserable cat who was spoilt rotten by his owners. The neighbours garden was very dark, so sometimes they couldn't see where he was and Kitty was frightened of him. This particular day he had been hiding and they couldn't tell if he was outside or not. All of a sudden, just as Kitty was about to pounce on one of the birds, Butch's owner shouted for him to go in for his supper which was salmon today. The birds were frightened by the loud voice and flew away out of reach. Well said Missy "today was going great until...people" It looks a like cat biscuits for their family today.

I am linking this to  Art Journal Journey, as the theme is 'Come fly with me' set by Alison ( Craftytrog's arty adventures)
