I love pillowmonsters!

Since I have been selling on etsy I have found some highly talented and interesting sellers. But once upon a time I found a shop called pillowmonsters, and low and behold I saw.....Victor!!

I love Victor!

With his lovely smart shirt, bow tie, his dashing mono brow and not to mention his lovely little freckly nose, in true internet dating style Victor came with this little bit of information..

Victor is the food critic for his local newspaper, The Beacon. He is not sure, but he thinks his job is the best in the whole world. He got the job because he is very good at thinking of interesting ways to describe food. He once described a cheeseburger from the local diner as tasting "like a summer day on my favorite roller coaster". Victor never passes up dessert, and he will never ever give a restaurant 5 stars if they don't have cherries to top off their sundaes. No, indeed. Victor also thinks that fashion rule about not wearing horizontal stripes if you have a heavy frame is ridiculous.

WOW!!! Now I'm sad to say that at 33 I have yet to meet Mr Right but something went PING in my heart over Victor! I decided he was the man for me, after all I needed some sophistication in my life!

Well a week or so later... This exciting parcel arrived!

The postman knocked!

Woooooooooooopie!!!! He had arrived! Come from overseas to sweep me off my feet!

Plushie LOVE!!!!

Already he was like no man I had ever met before, and was consulting the local restaurant guide for the perfect place to take his new PINK LADY!!! ME!!!!

Now where shall I take her?

So thank you so much to Nichol at pillowmonsters for creating a match made in heaven!!

Kitty does Kitten..

Anyone who knows me, knows about my enormous crush on the luverly Cillian Murphy!!

And my favourite film is Breakfast on Pluto, in which he plays Kitten (Patrick Braden) an endearing, witty clever and deceptively tough young man who dresses as a woman..

So armed with my love of that movie, Cillian and my latest obsession with buttons, I created Thursdays self portrait. Inspired by Kitten's decorated school jumper!

My inspiration....

KiTTeN!!

And 100g of buttons later, me....

Self Portrait Thursday 12-6-08

Loved how the picture turned out! And can't wait to wear my newly decorated jumper!!

So over the past 2 weeks I have done the following to my journal in this order...

1. Cracked the spine

2. Covered a page in circles

3. Covered a page in sticky stuff

4. Covered a page in office supplies

5. Burnt a page

6. Dripped nail varnish on a page

7. Picked the journal up without using hands

8. Ripped a page into strips

9. Infused a page with a smell of my choosing

10. Coloured outside the lines

11. Stuck 2 pages together

12. Doodled on a page

13. Poked holes in a page

14. Messed up the first page

15. Sewn a page

16. Doodled over a printed page

17. Scratched a page

18. Rubbed dirt into a page

19. Tore out and crumpled a page

20. Climbed up high and dropped the journal

Phew!!! I have overcome lots to get that far!!

Heres the photographic evidence so far.....

Therapy

Well my family would describe me as slightly obsessive about things! I have numerous empty journals and notebooks that I can't use for fear of ruining them! I buy 2 of everything I like so as to not spoil one, and I even take a picture of my bookshelves before I dust them so my toys all go back in the same place! Scared yet? The list of oddities could go on!

So to help me overcome these problems and have some fun whilst doing it, I bought myself a wreck journal!!

This is therapy....

INSTRUCTIONS...
1. Carry this with you EVERYWHERE you go!
2. Follow the instructions on every page.
3. Order is not important.
4. Instructions are open to interpretation.
5. Experiment! (Work against your better judgement!)

Perfect condition...

Firstly...I carried it back and forwards in my bag to get used to it getting slightly bashed about!

Then I opened it at a random page..

Wreck this journal day 1..Crack the spine!!

And as instructed I....wait for it...hold your breath...cracked the spine!!!
Waaah! It nearly broke my heart to do it, but I made a good start!

Wreck this journal day 1

Anyway, after that totally out of character book bending, I chose a page that was more me... A doodling page. I had to cover the page with circles, here's the result..

Wreck this journal day 1 Fill this page with circles!!

Inspired by the lovely sunny day we ended up having down here!

Wow! I am already feeling slightly less controlled :) Not to mention excited for the weird and wonderful things this little book may have in store for me tomorrow!!
Until then..xxx
