I love your inspiration pages. I keep doing this but not on a regular basis. Seeing this wants me to sit down and go through my stuff. These pages look happy and energizing - exactly what I need right now! Have fun going on wit it!

Love this...inspires me to branch out in a different direction with my journal pages.

What a wonderful journal for sparking new ideas! I like your mix of scrap patterns with photos.

Love it! Every square inch of it is perfect, so visually interesting.

Love your inspiration journal. Mine is done (cover and pages) and several other books are in the works. I will have covers, pages and bind them together after my knee replacement surgery in 2 weeks. I will bring all my art goodies up stairs and play FTB while I get better. By the way I am 69 and even though my knees aren't good I have the soul and spirt of a 8 year old so never worry about getting older. You like yourself better and are happy in your own skin, can't get any better then that.

Hi Mary Ann! What an outstanding inspiration journal! It's not only a place to store your creative ideas, but a work of art in and of itself! Love studying these pics!

Fun to see that Lungotevere postcard in there!

im a use-the-real-mccoy- kind of person. nothing looks, feels, smells, or crinkles like the real thing. when i use/look at my envelope on a collage or in a book i will remember the freezing cold day I found it at a flea market in paris. the story and the sensory experience that go along with it are one of a kind. same goes with all the little bits i collect, whether from ebay or from the street or an old bookstore or flea market abroad.

Words fail me ... *you* are truly inspirational!

Do you ever scan in your old ephemera and post it online? I'd love to "steal" your envelope for future projects!

I don't know if you've ever seen this Flickr group, but there's a lot of great stuff at http://www.flickr.com/groups/collageimages/ (including some scanned-in stuff of my own.) Great for printing out the perfect piece of ephemera -- and you don't have to worry about ruining the original.

oh i love this much more then pinterest because you get to pick it up and hold it in your hands, feel the texture, touch the paper....oooooh i LOVE it! thanks so much for sharing your pages! and i wanted to thank you, i was looking through one of your older journals and saw you put some coins under clear packing tape and i thought what a cool idea. the very next day i'm looking through a book i got at a garage sale and what do i find? a letter from 1912 and 2 four leaf clovers! the clover look perfect under the tape and they are safe from breaking too! both now in my journal as i just did a page about them last night! xoxox julie
