    List It Tuesday: January Edition + Junk Drawer

    With the remaining blank pages left in the hand-made journal that Hanna made for me {the stitched journal we used for The Journal List Project} I did a bunch of the lists for Artsyville's List it Tuesday challenge. 

    A link to the What's New January list at Artsyville.

    I love this idea of a flip-up section in the journal Hanna made.

    There's always a lot going on but it doesn't translate to a linear list. I am making stitched cards for the 365 Sometings Project, the kids and I are listening to The Mysterious Benedict Society en route to/from school each day.... Other goings-on include an upcoming school play, scheming the school's annual art auction project {freaking out because I am in charge}, pondering DD10's eleventh bday party, getting a new droid phone, a large dog that eats everything {this week the stealthy girl boldly stole a sauce drippy meatball from a cooling pot on the stove and de-nosed a leopard}, a collaborative project with an art friend, a collaborative mail art project with a few art friends, a few writing projects, trying to comprehend how etsy's search algorithms work, finishing up 30 more designs for art journal prompt cards {my goal is 100 total}, not exercising, staying up late, etc.

    In our house the junk drawer is just a tiny percentage of the unfiled stuff. It's not remarkable, and yet it cracked me up to find not one but three HP calculators and two junky calculators inside. It also the place for stacks of Lufthansa post-it-notes, a by-product of my former life.

    "Considering cleaning the house"...haha!

    {From Tammy}: Andria, I'm still considering it.

    I love this - such a simple idea, but it records the present moment and will be such fun to look back on ... especially if the junk drawer is still full of the same old stuff??

    {From Tammy}: Rosie, Writing the simple lists for the swap journal with Hanna and for Artsyville's List It prompts has been a surprisingly easy way to document life up to now. A snapshot. I think it will be fun to look back at the lists.

    Consider cleaning the house cracked me up.

    Love these lists and isn't it funny the things that are in junk drawers? Amazing, really.

    21 Secrets Watercolour Workshop seems fun as well. :)

    {From Tammy}: Em, I think it's extra funny that there are 5 calculators in the junk drawer and we rarely use them any more. Let me know if you take 21 Secrets!

    Wonder what you think of The Benedict Society? My kids loved it. Book #1 as we camped around the perimeter of Michigan several summers ago. I like #4 and of course #9 . . . . . .

    {From Tammy}: Carol, We are about 40% through The Mysterious Benedict Society and so far I think it's great. The kids have read the entire series and I think they are enjoying my reaction to the various twists and turns. I will photograph the thread when I get it!!!
