The hotel was ok, but in a sketchy part of town. That being said, they had the weirdest room keys I’ve ever seen. You just held the key infront of a sensor on the door and the door opened. No swiping necessary – so weird.
To add a bit more detail and journaling about the not fun week that I had, I stamped a “today is” stamp by Elise Cripe repeatedly on a Seafoam folding journal card. I added my details on the inside, and stuck a tab to the top so I’ll remember I can pull this card out in the future. Eventhough the week kind-of sucked, I really like how this journaling card turned out – and the fact that I have a record of a “bad” day. Not every day can be sunshine and daisies.
A few other highlights from the week:
- Jager was happy to see me back home & made sure to let me know that he doesn’t appreciate me being gone so long
- Dad and I nearly finished putting up the fence – all we lack is a 5′ section at the end.
- Because this was a blah kind of week, the only embellishments I used were those round wood veneers on the card with Jager and a couple of stamps – everything else is just journaling – and I’m surprised at how much I like this spread and how fast it came together. I don’t think I’ll abandon all my embellishments just yet, but every once in a while doing a very minimalist spread could be a refreshing break.

***I get a lot of questions about the mini photo collages I use in my spreads. To make them, I use the frametastic iPhone app set to the postcard size. I take & process 100% of my photos using just my phone; and most of the time, I print straight from my phone to Walgreens via the Printicular app.
