I'm glad that was not my new year's resolution, to have more blog posts in January. And if it was, I sure am glad I didn't say it out loud. Then I'd feel guilty that the month is half over and I haven't been posting much.
I'm also glad I'm not a perfectionist. I make too many mistakes to ever survive being a perfectionist. I've been admiring my Physics Journal all month. But I recently noticed that I put the back cover on upside down. Now, that's no big deal because there is nothing on the back cover. However, the raw edge where I cut the cover off the physics book is on the outside, instead of the inside where it should be.
I debated putting some washi tape over the edge to cover it up, but then I spied some fancy schmancy art paper I bought a long time ago. I cut it to size and used it as an endpaper to cover the inside back cover, but made it wide enough to wrap around the cover to the outside. I love it! And if I had not made a mistake, that might never have happened.
I added a colophon of sorts on the last page of the journal. I stamped the date it was made and added notes about materials I used. I drew boxes around the stamped date and used Inktense watercolor pencils to color them in. I used a black pencil for the border, and left some of it untouched with water so that I still had the rough lines around each box.
If I can just apply this go-with-the-flow attitude to all of life's problems, it's going to be a good year!
