It's Stamptember over at Simon Says Stamp and Shows blog. One of the challenge themes is reading, words, books, etc. I chose to alter a fuschia composition book that can be found at most office supply stores for about $1. In my journal I'll be logging in all the winning moments I can remember...in and outside the art world. Some of my friends were teasing me about how lucky I was last month, so this prompted me to really think about this. And yes, I really do seem to be pretty darned lucky, especially when it comes to random drawings.
