I got in!

Yippee! Although I let the deadline for 2013 registration slip by, Kathy was so generous and let me in even though registration was closed. This is something that I had wanted to do last year but the upcoming year was full of unpredictability so I opted not to participate.

So now I am ready to roll and I even know what my first block will be. Like most everyone else in our country, I was deeply effected by the rampage at the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut. Although it didn't happen in January I am still going to do a block so that it gets included in my 2013 journal.

I am not 100% sure of the final format to display my blocks but I am pretty sure that I will, literally, make a journal. Three of the sides will be "finished" off and the inside/side will have grommets or ties or something to help form a book-type journal, unless I decided to do an accordion style book. Then I will probably finish off the inside/side before I attached the pages together. That is way down the line so I won't be too concerned about it now.
