The Topsy Turvy Family

I wanted to share with you my new family art journal. I thought the title "The Topsy Turvy Family" was highly appropriate.





















I have been encouraging the girls to add to it and write interesting things that happen to them but so far no luck....I remain hopeful. Maybe it won't be so much our family journal as my family journal. Ah, well, any excuse to cut and paste.... I'll take it.

hi
i love your journal idea! with 2 kids of my own, i'd love to have a family journal just like it. and altering a book is such a great way to personalize it. thanks for the inspiration!

what's in a name? said...

I love that book! Looks so cute! My girls would be all over it! I have a notebook in my purse for lists and stuff, and there is nary a blank page for all their drawings and stories!

Love the name and the work, Jenn. I thing we can all relate to topsy turvy. Great job. It looks wonderful.

I am "old school" too, LOL. We found a lovely 1800's portable writing desk at auction the other day. We decided to call it the 1800s laptop.
