When my young friend, Hamizan wrote:

"My Dad always tell me, if you want to start with something Positive, don't wait till New Year or say "in 2 weeks or so". Always start NOW". Wise advice.

Sometimes in the wake of daily activities, there is always the tendency to let things slip by until it is too late. Regrets began to set in and a lot of questions were asked. Then again, one in 50, Procrastination is a Blessing, as my recent experience showed.My three friends were moaning for having submitted their claims on time. There was a revision in the claims package and a re-submission was required. Fortunately for me, an error occurred for my on-time submission and the result was I did not have to re-submit. My claim amount was sufficient to cover the revision and the previous error required minor fixing. Phew! A rare occurrence but no excuse either to procrastinate. Unless, it a matter of life and death.

When Maremi-small-art featured making albums out of envelopes, I was sooooo lucky to spot the required envelopes jutting out of one of my bags of stash. I set to work immediately and this is the cover of the mini album. I shall only decorate the cover to the last minute because I want to create Art journals first. 

This is the inside of the mini-album and I have another 16 pages of art to work on.

This is the first two pages of the album that I had started. I must admit, I had started these pages
 much earlier but I stopped because I ran out of Black ink.Even the shop I frequented ran out of the Black Ink I so desired. As soon as I purchased the ink, I still couldn't complete it because I was already admitted to Hospital. Yesterday, with all intent, I managed to complete the Art Journal and I dedicate these pages to my young friend. Thank you, Hamizan, for the reminder.

Supplies: Envelopes
