woyww & Mini Journal

I am currently working on a mini journal and have made three pages so far. Its called 'pieces of me' everything in it including the colours,images,numbers etc are pieces of me. For example the ' woman with child ' depicts me as a mother and grandmother and I have sung that song to all of my babies at one time or another. the numbers depict my 2 sons and my 7 grandchildren. And on other pages you can see i have a love of fairies (which i believed in for a very long time and am hanging on to that belief lol ) and butterflies. Many of the colours i am using depict 'Nature' which is another love of mine. I will post more pages up when they are done.

Also below are pics for the woyww which i have explained before ... i dont really have a work space but like to share just the same so these are some of my inks and stamps etc ... the journal is what i am currently working on too so that counts methinks :)
 My Resource shelf with books and things i take images from
Large drawer of wooden stamps
 Large drawer full of unmounted stamps
Large drawer of stamping inks
