Altered Journal #2 and a Fun Dog Book!

I just finished my second altered journal.

Just like the first, it is filled with pug art and photos of fun things I did this year.
I had so much fun creating it over the last 6 months.
I already have a third one picked out and ready to start.


I am displaying my altered journals with some of my favorite pug and art books on my coffee table.


Speaking of favorite dog art books, my friend Connie Conley, a very talented artist and writer, just finished her second book of her dog paintings and poems.


Check out her website and Etsy Store.

She is always creating something new!

Congrats on the honorable mention. Emmitt is a perfect pile of squishy pug in that picture you submitted to the contest. :o)

And that altered journal is so amazing. Your friend's book is wonderful too.

I'm with Lisa and Diana. They look great and need to experiment with them sometime.

Thanks for sharing the links to Connie. Congrats to her on publishing another book. Is there a book in the works for you?

Hi Melissa, thanks for sharing. I can't wait to try it out!!
I've recently read a good book called Life to the Max, by Robin Reynolds . I bought this book after the loss of my dog Max and thought this book was like my calling since it was called Life to the Max about a dog named Max. I think I needed this book after the passing of my dog and I'm so glad I found it!
