My Secret Journal: One

WEB TIP-INS 001
Well as my brother’s used to say, I AM blonde!

(Sssshhh, so are two of my brothers.)

I am writing a journal that I don’t want to show before it is published in full.
This is why I have not been posting much —
working on this story, not other things, and of course, working in our business!

At 3am (my most brilliant time of the day) I realized I can simply share some of the images without the writing, duh!  SO, without further ado, here are a few blank pages!

Our favorite weekly meal at the end of a work day:
a roast chicken; recipe WILL be attached (hint).

The first time the cats were allowed into the offices, was as we were putting up the bookshelves before moving our offices into our studio.
So much space to run in before the office furniture arrived!
NO desks!  No Computers!
(The cats are not allowed on the computer desks when they visit!)
And always, our eclectic space with Ganesha, Buddha, Hanuman,
and the infamous Red Chicken.

These pages are all Pitt pens on shellac — and all will be tip-ins to the moleskin.
For those who do not know what a tip-in is, it is a page that is added to the bound journal.

    How do you keep the cats out of those shelves? Ours would be tossing stuff on the floor and claiming spaces as their own. I love the drawings.
