The Wrecking Ball Call

Laughter & mayhem ensued on the Wrecking Ball Call! Not only did we get a chance to chat about what we all got out of this experience but the wrecking continued - LIVE! Enjoy the call.

One Journey Ends & Another Begins!

Wreck this Journal ~ Week 4

This week's video takes place in my "Wreck this Studio" space! We had some repairs that turned into total wall destruction which turned into a beautiful new window and door - and a need to repaint, revision and reorganize. Destruction --> Creation! That was what I was thinking when I shared with you my crazy space.

Swap, please!

Inspired by a suggestion by the wonderful Hybrid J, I thought it would be fun if we could help each other out with the "Give away your favourite page" activity. If you'd like to swap your favourite page with a fellow wrecker, just write "Swap, please" in the comments. Next Friday, July 3rd, I'll put up a list of swap partners and you guys can share your info and your favourite pages! And that gives you at least one more week to actually make a favourite page, lol!

Have a fun week,

And if you're looking for a little Wreck this Journal connection in between Fridays, it's fun to share stories of chaos, laughter and creative destruction on Twitter as well. Twitter is free to join and a fun way of connecting in short posts (tweets) of 140 characters. If you're on Twitter, you can follow me here. When you tweet about Wreck this Journal, just add #wtj. You can go to Twitter Search enter wtj and see all the posts people tagged that way. It's great fun. Thanks, Jenn, for making the suggestion!

Welcome to Week 1

Welcome everyone! Oh, it is so wonderful to see so many friends and also so many fabulous new people who are about to become friends. What a great place the blogosphere is, that we can be in a creative community, sharing an amazing adventure from our own little spot on the map. We are in this chaotic, playful, delicious experience together. May it help all of us shine brighter, stretch farther and laugh louder.

As a part of the Wreck this Journal experience, I'm trying vlogging for the first time. I really hope you enjoy this way of connecting each week. It's giving me another opportunity to bust out, try something new and make mistakes!

And before we head out into this week, I want to share a little secret with you. And I really want you to keep this close to your heart and remind yourself of it whenever you need to: there's no way to get it wrong. None. Nada. Whatever you do on this journey is absolutely perfect - so leave your worries at the door and play!

We're going to have ourselves some fun!
