If you're wondering what that stands for it's "Learn Something New Every Day".   It's Shimelle Laine's September Event.   Inexpensive...and pay once and each year you can join at no cost.   I like the idea of thinking about September as a new start.   After all, it is the new beginning of the school year.

Ms. Laine sends a PDF file each day with things to read,  think about and ponder and suggestions to implement the results.   This year, I am trying my hand at scrapbooking, so far with mixed results.   The idea is to come up with a sentence that expresses your pondering of the idea presented.   There is no right or wrong way, just your way.   

So here's a few of my pages so far.  The topics are my interpretation of suggested ponderings.  

DAY ONE:   (Taking it one day at a time.)

DAY TWO:  (Someone who has influenced you my case, my grandma.)

 DAY THREE:  Something to strive for...

DAY FOUR:  What's important in your surroundings...

Sorry about missing last Friday's post.   By the time I got back from Boothbay Harbor (lobster on the wharf, again) it was late and I was exhausted.

There's a new journal prompt posted.   You can guess where I got the idea.

And now back to my studio which I decided to pull apart today to do some sorting and organizing.   It's truly a mess, but I have a couple boxes to bring to Goodwill.   Crafts I have tried, enjoyed but will not be doing again.   

Have you ever heard of Barbara Sher?   I like her ideas about trying out new things.  Check out her website sometime...maybe even read one of her books.   I found them extremely enlightening.

Well, football is on - two games tonight.  What a treat...

Thanks for stopping by...
See you tomorrow...(I promise!)
