Wreck It

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 12, 2014, 11:39 PM
I caved and purchased a Wreck This Journal for both my wife and I.  I had originally thought it was stupid because I happened to flip to a few "boring" pages of prompts.  But last week, I started seeing pages of it pop up in my instagram feed.  I liked what I was seeing.  My creative juices started churning.  While I know I can figure out prompts for myself in an effort to spark ideas, I think it's more of a challenge to do what someone else has set out for you.  

Anyway, they arrived on Thursday (gotta love Amazon Prime before it got so outrageously expensive).  Lisa started hers immediately.  I don't remember what I had been doing, but I didn't pick mine up for a good 30 minutes after it arrived.  By then, Lisa had a good half dozen pages started.  So far, I am liking most of what I am trying.  I am working on accepting whaever comes from it.  I'm trying to stash my perfectionism behind other things, and I'm having fun.  Every now and then I look online for ideas.  I'm trying to take my time with each one to come up with something unique.  It's tough, but some thing are working.  I'm also taking this opportunity to try out some of the kids' crafts/ideas I have seen online.  So far, so good.  

I don't have any really decent pics of what I have done to this point, but I will try to upload some as they come into being.  In the mean time, here are some low-quality phone pics of a handful of my pages.  I don't have a pic of the page I spent the last 5 hours designing and implementing, but that will come tomorrow or Monday.
