In 2011 a cute little bundle of black and white kitty fluff came to live my parents and I. Meet Eddie.
About a year later I moved out to live with my partner Saul. Eddie didn’t move with us as at the time Saul had a very old lady cat, Saffy, who at the old age of 19 was quite rightly grumpy! As the months went on my parents became more attached to Eddie we decided it was best he stayed with them (although I still see him every week).
Hes a pretty big (fat) cat and has an odd personality. He either loves you (although only for a couple of mins) or doesn’t want a thing to do with you. But my parents love him and wouldn’t know what to do without him now.
So when I walked past the charity shop and saw this kitty I knew I had to have him and evolve him into Eddie!

For my Birthday in December I received the ‘Anti Journal’ by David Sinden and Nikalas Catlow. I added this journal to my wish list after being followed by the Anti Journal team over on twitter (@anti_journal).
Seeing as Christmas is almost upon us I am having a lazy day which has involved naps, eating too much chocolate and journal wrecking!
As you can see from my gif image above I have adapted my cover of the journal. I will probably do more to decorate it in the future too.
On these pages I have written the lyrics to ‘Destroy what you enjoy’ from Powerman 5000, doodled a spider snowman (well it is Christmas :p ), burnt it and listed 12 other ways to wreck the journal. I will be trying some of these ideas on mine soon!
I have made a blog on tumblr just to reblog photos of mine and others journals, smash books etc. Here is the link
For Christmas 2012 I added the Smash Book by from K&Company to my wishlist and I was lucky enough to receive it!
Previously I have been using regular plain note books to note in memorable moments and stick in mementos from outings. The Smash Book is a much better alternative for this for me. The pages are of very good quality and are patterned.
Over the years I collected quite a few art journals and diaries. Here are my main ones, not including all my blank note books which I have quite a pile of also.
This is one of my all time favourite books, although not really a book in a normal sense. The Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith is an interactive journal. Full of lots of creative prompts from simple doodles to going more outside of your comfort zone, destroying pages.
I started my first Wreck this Journal in 2011 and finished it last year (although I don’t think one of these can ever truly be ‘finished’). So here are a few of my favourite finished pages from my journal.
