WOYWW #531

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

Hello! I missed last week as I was in Niagara Falls Ontario, visiting a friend, and didn't have access to a computer. I brought my junk journal things with me though and did some journaling, but still have some catching up to do. Here is my very messy desk this morning:

I did get some journaling done while I was away. I used my new journal that Eva sent me:

On Tuesday my printer decided to give me trouble, and I lost a cartridge of film, but then it decided to co-operate again

My friend's 100 year old mother had a fall early Friday morning, and we spent the day in the hospital, but she is recovering nicely! It changed a few plans, but that was Ok. Hubby came down for the weekend and we went to the Falls, and a place just after the Falls called Dufferin Islands. Beautiful! A nice escape from all the hype at the falls!

Some ducks on a log!

We saw a giant turtle!

Lots of little waterfalls

beautiful views-you wouldn't even guess Niagara Falls was just over those trees!

just so relaxing!

And we did drive by the Falls - VERY busy on a Holiday weekend, but I managed to get a photo with only a few people in it! This is the "American Falls"

BTW, My friend loved the journal I made for her!

I hope everyone is well, and not too's nicely raining here today, I think we will get an all day rain which is nice. The cats are out enjoying the cooler weather, and I am recovering from something that started up before I left for Niagara Falls last week, so it will be a quiet few days for me.

The Falls is on my bucket list. But I definitely have to check out the other place off the beaten path. It looks so serene. Glad your friends mom is recovering. Falls at that age can be tricky. I like your journal. I am drooling over the panini and yummies on the menu!
Have a blessed day and thanks for sharing the lovely photos.

Lovely busy desk and I love your journaling pages. The photos are gorgeous. I visited the Canadian side of the falls many years ago in Winter - your summer photos have a very different feel. Take care and have a good week. With love & God Bless, Caro x #12

I love seeing other folk's travel pics - they're so interesting and of areas that it's unlikely I'll ever see. I'm so pleased you had a great time with your friend. The junk journal is amazing, so varied and colourful.

Differin looks fab, like a secret place away from the jangle of people. Love touring myself, but am very aware of the impact we all have on other people’s home towns etc. Glad you had a good stay, love the journaling you did. How great of you to stick around at the hospital, very glad the outcome is positive...falls at that age are very scarey!

Your art journal pages are very striking. I love using Kraft for card making, but have never used a journal made of it. I looks like you had a nice relaxing time with your husband at Dufferin Islands. Happy belated WOYWW! #26
