Yo-ho-ho and a Bottle of Rum

This is one of two traveling bookmooch journals that I intend to give to a friend once it is completed. She is a recently separated mother of two who just lost all her possessions and pet in an apartment fire. I’m hoping these will provide her with some small happiness and humor as she rebuilds her life.

My friend really likes pirates and that is the theme of this journal.

Rhapsody in Blue

This is one of several “neon” journals that I picked up on sale at the local drug store. They are small in size – the pages are about the size of an index card and are unlined and brightly colored in the theme of each of these “color” journals. The theme of this journal is “blue.” It is a celebration of all things literally and figuratively “blue” – blue moods, blue-notes, events that occur once in a blue moon…all things “blue” are welcome.

A Hunk a Hunk a Burnin’ Love

This is one of two traveling bookmooch journals that I intend to give to a friend once it is completed. She is a recently separated mother of two who just lost all her possessions and pet in an apartment fire. I’m hoping these will provide her with some small happiness and humor as she rebuilds her life.

The theme of this journal is hot-hunky guys. Here is permission to revisit your teenage years and decorate the pages much the way you would the inside of your highschool locker or bedroom walls – with all the hotties you used to obsess over, and perhaps the ones you secretly still do. My friend is particularly fond of Johnny Depp and Kenneth Branagh, but feel free to add your personal favorites.

Smiles

A quote about a smile is on every spread in this little notebook. Choose whichever quote you like best. On your spread (two pages facing each other) respond to the quote. Collage your feelings. Illustrate how a smile makes you feel. Write about how it applies to your life.

Please use both your pages and just those two pages for that quote. If you want to do two quotes (two spreads) you can.

Peculiar Hobbies, Habits, or Pastimes

I consider myself a connoisseur of peculiar hobbies, habits, and projects. I once made a cardboard chair that I liked so much I even moved with it to another state. I constantly pick up rubbish on the street to craft wind chimes. I run my car on vegetable oil. I knit socks, but never in pairs.

Contribute something your peculiar hobby, habit, pastime, project, or trait to this journal, then pass it along. Your contribution may be a story, a description, a picture, an artifact, or any other imaginative rendering. I would like to have the journal back when it is full. If your entry is the last please contact me: my profile.

The Trip I Never Took

I’ve been a lot of places, but here is a trip I never took. This is a Frommer’s Travel Planner Journal. I bought it at Savers, to plan a trip to Washington DC for the summer of 2007. The trip was canceled. You can read about it and see my notes. I wrote all over the maps for this project, not as part of the trip planning, you can too, use a different ink pen/color than mine. The front pocket has some items, use them as you will. ADD something new. Place your business card in the back or alter a fake credit card, I did. Relabel the tabs, list the states and places you have been. Tell us about your USA or abroad travels. Tell about the trip you never took, or one you want to take. Add a postcard or take a postcard for any reason, any state. Cut up a map and paste. Have fun. Dont alter others work. The front maps and cover are the free zone. Please add a yarn, ribbon or fiber to the elastic strap that keeps it closed.
Pleas return finished book to 8izenuff when you are finished. Please only keep two weeks, dont mooch it if you are too busy. ISBN is TRIPNEVERTOOK Relist it so others can have a turn.

I don’t know these people! Scrapbooking Unknown loved ones

This is a great project for those who love altered art or scrapbooking. Have you ever found an old photo in a used book? or elsewhere? Maybe you found photos while cleaning up an estate. Do you have a photo of people that you dont know who they are? (and WHY do you still have them, really?) Tell us where you got the photo, guess who they are, make up names and a life story. Please only one Photo/story per moocher, your may use two adjacent pages only. Then pass it on in the two week time frame. Altering other moochers pages is acceptable if room provides. Please don’t be destructive, but instead creative as you add to their stories. Altering other photos or stories needs to be in good taste. Other moochers can reserve the right to not have their pages altered. A Note of DNA = Do Not Alter, must be on the page somewhere, if you don’t want anyone adding to your story or page. Please keep it rated pg-13, I would like to share it with my kids. Please free to decorate the front and back covers. and please add a fiber, yarn, ribbon, or lacy to the spiral binding. Relist on this page only, and return to 8izenuff azmom875 at yahoo.com
