A few months ago, a co-worker made a comment about my circle of friends - the circle that is made up of friends from school, friends from scrapbooking, and friends who are practically family. She (the co-worker) said "oh, I wish that I had a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants group like that." Being a huge Sisterhood fan myself, the comment stuck with me. Several days later, I was working on a Smash book about adventures with that same group of friends. The next night, while driving home, this idea came to me -
Sisterhood of the Traveling Smash.
I like naming things. I did what I normally do when I have an idea that might be dumb - I emailed Barb. She confirmed that she was in, which is pretty much like a gold star. And just like that, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Smash started coming together. What is it? It's Smash book (oh, sorry Barb - SMASH book - Barb prefers all caps) meets circle journal. We each buy a SMASH book, decorate it how we see fit, throw in some "rules" and then mail if off to the next person on the list. That person adds in a few pages (working loosely on a "day in the life" theme) and mails it to the next person - and so on & so on.
I am very excited about this project.
So freakin' excited.
My SMASH book is ready to roll - I'll be mailing it off to Lain later this week. Here's a peek -
