Last One In

We forced ourselves to make reservations this year for Memorial Day to start camping. Always comes too soon, but if you don't make plans, things don't happen. The mud daubers were at it again (see last Sept.7 "Camping Time"), causing mischief and mayhem with their nests. Very enjoyable time, though. Forgot salt, pepper, cinnamon, bug spray, and forgot to check charcoal (but we had enough). Thought we had water and electric services but only had electric (had half tank freshwater and it was enough). Not bad for first camp of the year. But we got labeled as "Last one in".

PS: I'm taking Kate Johnson's Watercolor Pencil class for the next 6-8 weeks so my posts here will be less frequent. But they'll continue.

Another great journal entry John - I want to hear how you like Kate's Watercolor Pencil class. I've thought about taking it, but I'm taking another class right now, so hers will have to wait.

Nice sketches and page layout. I'll be interested to see how you like the watercolor pencil class.

Saw your link on EDM's Yahoo group (That bunch is so inspiring, aren't they?), and after reading this latest entry about the camping trip, just had to keep reading through your blog. I love your journal pages!!

I wanted to write and tell you thank you for inspiring me to continue journaling. (I've been in a 'slump' since August when I posted this stuff - http://lauriefrench.blogspot.com/2008/08/more-airport-stuff.html )

Have fun with the watercolor pencil class.

With Appreciation,
Laurie
