Mourning Junk Journal

Friends of our good friend Marsha, who became our friends, moved interstate last year to be near family. A sudden heart attack and her husband was gone — just a few weeks ago.

We decided to make a small junk journal instead of sending a sympathy card.

Well, it’s not that small!

Two signatures totalling 64 pages, plus notelets and tags and journalling cards…

The cover is a watercolour painting I made of an historic church in the main street of our village. Kay loves gardens, painting and colour.

First the couple

The first signature has little activities under flyouts for simple grief activities.

One is for Kay to write, on the pretty floral paper, a secret letter to her husband telling him her feelings.

Now her alone

The pretty card that starts the next signature has a tag with the first “job” for healing. There a few more in this part of the journal.

We hope this new life gets a bit easier with our love.

I have had many careers in my 70+ years, but always creativity was at the forefront. I am passionate about using less and wasting less. I love design, painting, decorating, and now I am combining all that into making junk journals. Creating is like breathing for me!
