Wreck This Journal: Week 6

This week for Wreck This Journal, I overcame a fear. I made a video.

Lots of fellow wreckers paved the way for me by making videos that looked fun and not terribly scary. I generally don’t like video cameras and find it hard to be myself around them, so this was a huge step.

This was completely spontaneous. One minute I was weeding my garden, the next I was scurrying through my house to gather up my computer and journal in the last few minutes of daylight.

I had a lot of fun making this video and I didn’t even chicken out in posting it. Here it is. Enjoy!

Happy wrecking!

If you’re confused as to what this Wreck This Journal stuff is all about or curious to see what other wrecking has transpired, here are some links to bring you up to speed.

    You are too cute!! I love how you hop on the soil at the end!! Something I would do….if I had a garden..and not just little terra cotta pots!!

    That was awesome! Congratulations on taking the step into video. It’s lovely to see you! I love that you got to do all different kinds of wrecking in this one project. And I just loved the bird song that came in right before you buried it. How cool! Thanks for sharing your wreckage! May it bloom amazing things in your garden :)

    haha..this was great! Your page is not gone forever though….it is only changed…and as you said..it will be a part of your garden forever! I think that is what I have learned doing this project…EVEN though the pages get altered by destruction….they are still there…..only changed..and even the change CAN be a good thing!

    What a blast! The WTJ group also inspired me to do a video – I did mine last week. No jumping up and down for me though – which I have to tell you, made me laugh out loud! What a hoot.

    Great job! Thanks for doing it.

    Great first vlog! You’re a natural! I giggled at “I don’t really know what I’m doing” whispered to the camera :) Hoorah, now as you said, your journal will be part of your garden forever.

    Nice video!
    In fact it was on my first wrecking day, I buried my whole journal. But not for long.
    By the way: letter is on the way now!

    Great video – lovely to see you and hear your voice. Gone but not forgotten- and will eventually disappear!
