    Summer Bucket List and My Art Journal

    Watch tons of Classic Hollywood movies
    This should be easy!
    Read at least half of Classic Club list
    Hmm. Not a priority.
    Make lots of art and crafts
    Well, I’ve put a lot of pressed flower art in my art journal, worked on redoing my first quilt, and worked on dresses for my sisters’ birthdays.
    Spend time outside: stargaze, watch the sunset, swim, swing, catch lightening bugs, sleep outside
    I’ve spent some time, but I need to make it more of a priority.
    Dance
    You would think this would be easy.
    Go on several day-trips 
    I’ve been to the zoo and a baseball game at our local university, and I want to plan one for my birthday.
    Jane Austen Festival and local art festival
    I’m doing the latter for certain..
    Go on or at least schedule one major vacation
    I meant myself, but our family is going on one in January
    Take a trip with my grandparents
    Work extensively on genealogy
    Make frozen custard
    I should’ve focused a bit more on, um, less costly options.

    I had tons of pressed flowers, so I’ve worked on tons of pages for my art journal. I’ve rather more pressed flower pages than I would like, but I’m still learning this art journal thing. These are my best pages to date (05/26/2017), I think.

    Didn’t that iris press gorgeously?!

    My paper back copy of the Jane Austen novels split, so I decided to use the pages for crafts.
