It’s 4am, do you know where your spleen is?

The house is quiet right now and I am wide awake, having been woken 15 minutes ago by enough stomach acid in my throat to swim in.

I had skipped dinner, something I normally don’t do though I do try to eat early, and I ate later on (read big mistake) when I got hungry. I don’t think the chicken and cheese sandwich is what did me in though, I think it was the few pink M&Ms that I’d decided to have. Either way I am awake now, definitely not by choice, sitting in the living room with a glass of milk (which will cause its own problems) and a slice of dry bread. Might as well put the time to good use…

I am working on the guidelines for the two journals (and a seasonal mail art call) I will be posting later today. Both “journal” projects are for charity; one for Komen for breast cancer, the other for charity:water.

These two projects will not be typical journal projects though, no wonderfully inspiring traveling journals that take months to complete if they make it from point B from point A without get lost, hijacked, or forgotten about through “de-prioritization”. These projects will be creatives making two half sheet pages and mailing them. On this end I will scan and compile them into a book. The book will be published with the proceeds going to charity. The original pages will all be decoratively boxed up and auctioned off on eBay with the proceeds going to the same charity.

Artistamp ATC:  For Hope

Why don’t I bind them? Well, the backs of the pages will be blank but mostly because I am sincerely hoping we get so many people wanting to help raise money for these charities that we have to box them all.

Sleep is over-riding my ability to type, it took me ten minutes to write that last sentence, so I am going to wander back to bed for now. Hoping you all have sweet dreams and wake refreshed and ready to take on the new day. Me, I’ll be sleeping in.

    What a wonderful idea! I am not sure what you mean by “box them up”, though. Maybe frame the individual pages and auction them off that way?
