Book of Days... Week 1... all together now! January 2nd-7th

Cannot express how much I'm loving the Book of Days!
(pppstttt... linked on my side-bar)
Love the re-use of the textbook I'm altering,
Love the recording of Days,
Love the freedom to do what I want in my book...
no plan or template you *must* follow.

Not sure how regularly I'll be posting my Days:
1 at a time, weekly, batches... meh.
I'm sure a rhythm will develop as the book does.
No stress. :O)

This time It's a FULL week since I had some catch-up to do.

Consider this post a 'walk-through' tour.

Right Now it looks like this:

Since the Textbook was a sexual education one I don't want aaaaall that in the background, all the time... This week I started off by white-washing the pages with Paint.
