Journal 52 week 1 - 'Peace'

Morning lovelies, hope you're all well.
 I'm joining in with Journal 52 again this year...... hopefully I'll get further than I did last year lol but you know what it's like when real life gets in the way. So the prompt for week 1 is 'Word of the Year'. An easy one for me as I'd already chosen the word house is full, like really full, full to bursting....there's me & my daughter, Rebecca.....and my 5 sons! I could easily have chosen the word smell cos with a chef, a mechanic, gym bags, rugby boots, aftershave, shaving gel (who knew that came in so many smells!) and the can imagine all the smells in my house! Add in Miss Rebecca's perfume, bath bombs, hair products, make up etc, there's definitely a journal page just waiting to be done! Anyway, I digress....last year was the toughest in a long time & I found myself forever searching for 5 minutes for me, a little piece of calm in all the chaos & chatter. Don't get me wrong, I love them all being home but heck, peace is hard to find! So this year I'm gonna try & find me some PEACE every single day....even if it's only 5 minutes.  For my page the idea was that in all the crazy madness of everyday life I would find my little piece of peace......and frame (enjoy) it! IRL the colours are much more vibrant, all the different shades of teal/blue show up much better but it's so dull here there's no way I could get a decent photo.
Rightio, I can hear that nasty housework calling.......wonder if I dare ignore it?


  1. So delicate and feel really peace and relax! Love the vibrant shades of teal and blue with the black and white details!

  2. What a fab cool page Jo and the right word to start the year with.....

  7. Hi Jo,
    your page is fab and the colour is so vibrant.
    I do hope you get your 5 mins peace each day as I have been there done that and got the tee shirt as they say.
    I had 3 children and married a man with 3 children and they were all teenagers at the time, but I didn't do any blogging as there were hardly any computers at the time, didn't find much time to craft.
    So I take my hat off to you for being able to craft too, and run a blog.
    Happy New Year.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
