It's that time again - packing! I've done it so many times I have no idea why I still can't fit all those clothes into my suitcase! Oh yes I do, too many quilts and other bits! Other bits like lots of my journals. I know that many of you ladies coming to Loxton have asked me if I can talk about my journals and albums over our long weekend together. Well, yes!
I think it will be good fun if you can actually journal on the weekend and go home and just glue in a few photos to complete your journal. So, if you're one of the lucky ladies to be coming to Almond Grove Craft over the long weekend (there isn't actually an official long weekend, we're just turning it into one) and you'd like to create a journal bring along a visual diary (an A4 size one is ideal), some glue or tape, a pencil or pen to journal and a pair of scissors (think you might have already packed those).
A place to make notes and add in favourite fabrics:
And of course a place to keep those snapshots of what we get up to:
And where we stay:
If you'd like to join in just grab a visual diary from a newsagent on the way, or Kmart or BigW or an office supplies store or art store. It doesn't need to be an expensive one, look for one around the $8 mark and that will do. Bring your camera on the weekend and snap away. I'll have lots of hints and tips on how to make journalling fun and quick and cheap and you'll go home with something you love - I promise!
Now back to trying to squeeze that extra quilt in my bag, okay, okay, I mean that extra block of chocolate!
See you on Thursday night girls!

P.S. The photos are of a journal I created in February when my friend Melinda and I went to AQC. I completed the journal over the weekend and simply stuck in the photos when I came home and had them developed.
P.P.S. Better show you what we'll be stitching, the 'Loxton Vines Quilt':
This was a fun photo shoot with Rosie, her hubby Neil, and pussy cat!
P.P.P.S Note to Gail: Don't forget to leave room in your suitcase for the Loxton shoe shop sale!
