Week 4 BOD Journal Spread and More

I am still running late with my journaling classes, but I am determined to do each and every week's spread.  This is my spread for Week 4 Book Of Days.  We were to put ourselves in the journal entry somehow.  These words ring so true with me.  It took me many years to realize my worthiness and once I did, I became a different person and my life changed in many ways.


I wanted to make some Valentines this year for some special friends in my life, so I cut up some cereal boxes and went to work early in the week.  Unfortunately, I didn't realize how time consuming it would be and I didn't get as many made as I wanted.  The biggest problem was drying time between layers ~ I see that I will need to start working on them a few weeks earlier next year so I can make more and get them mailed early enough to arrive by Valentine's Day.
 My sister, brother-in-law, and I, traveled to Staunton, VA on Tuesday.  We had been wanting to visit the Factory Antique Mall there.  It is the largest antique mall on the East Coast and the 2nd largest in the country.  Wow!  We only covered maybe 1/10th of the place and had to leave at 5:00 when they closed.  We were pretty tired by that time anyway ~ a lot of walking and a lot of items to look at.  We'll want to return someday as there is a lot of interesting things to see.  It's a 1-1/2 hour drive one way, so we'll get an earlier start next time. 
My prize purchase was this Goebel Madonna to add to my Madonna collection.  The lady at this particular booth gave me an incredible price break ~ I just could not leave without this statue.  It is quite beautiful and makes me very happy.
Here is a close-up of her face.  SO pretty.

It was a good week.  I hope yours was good as well, and I hope you have a great weekend!

Well, Audrey, I just love all your Valentines...wonderful! What's even more wonderful, is I'm the owner of one of them. Thank you, dear lady, for your lovely and thoughtful Valentine gift. I now have it in my living room and I just might frame it, since it's suitable for just that!!

Have a great week and again, thank you.

Hugs,
Georgina
