Wreck This Journal: Week 8

A lot of people in this Wreck This Journal book blogging group tackled the burning page early on. Since I waited, it felt almost a little boring so I just kept ignoring that page.

With the help of my husband and stepson, last night I ceremoniously burned the page. We even made another video. I have to give my husband loads of credit for his ideas on how to burn the page as well as his film directorship. I hope you like it.

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.

    I STILL haven’t burned my page…I’m afraid that I will get carried away and burn a whole bunch of the book! Great job getting your family involved – your wrecking is awesome. :)

    That was great! I really like you ‘running’ in the dark and then the page burning and lighting up the room!

    Nothing like a wholesome family video — “don’t try this at home kids” kinda comes to mind and then it ends so beautifully. Fabulous, thank you for sharing!!! Your are all WRECKSTARS at your house!!!!! KEEP ON WRECKIN’!!!!

    Fun! I don’t know how you kept your match lit while moving – I think I breathe too heavy or something because mine would have been out long before I got to the journal. :) A+ video!
