This and That.......

A Visual journal page, about things that happen in July. Just click on the picture it should get  bigger

What have I been doing since I last posted.  Laying low, not doing to
much thinking about my ATC.  If you have not signed up yet to take part in the swap
tomorrow is your last day.  All you have to do is drop me or Janet    http://jkbees.blogspot.com/
a email and your in. 2 ATC's with the themes summer and fashion how easy is that.  We have amazing artists signed up.  If your a beginner don't worry ATC are easy....

I was lucky enough to take part in http://wovenletters.blogspot.com/
collage box swap and I received the box Wednesday.  Its full of amazing stuff, you got to take 12 items out of the box and you put the same amount in.  The next stop for the box is Australia and then its back to where it started from I think it was almost  8 or 9 months before I got the box.  It has travelled all over.  She is having another swap if your interested, go over to her site and see.

Its been hot here, and the mosquitoes are driving me mad.  If you live in a part of the world where they don't have them you are so lucky.  At night when you might want to sit on the deck and enjoy the night they are out in full force.

Where I live  their summer motto is (Festival City) we have all kinds of things to do in the summer.  I think it must be because we have such bad winters and hibernate in our houses.  In July we have  the Street Performers festival, the Works (all kinds of art all over the streets with artists selling their work) we Art Walk, we have Capital Exhibition ( you know your regular rides, and stuff) the Folk Festival, great acts come here) Hertitage Days (Which is this weekend) this year all cultures come together and booths and cook their foods, we have taste of Edmonton (runs along with the Capital EX and you taste and of course pay to taste food from different restaurants in the city) I am sure lots of big cities have this one.  And I could go on and on.  I usually go to a few of these things. What do you have in your city in the Summer months.

Well I have dragged this on long enough, instead of reading this you should be out enjoying the weather, that is what I am going to do today.

  2. I also love your journal page. Wow, your town sounds like fun. Our summers are really hot, so we mostly stay inside or travel to a pool.

    Our winters are the best, just like spring weather. Enjoy your day.
