My grandma kept journals to record their daily events around the farm in Osage county in Oklahoma. She would write who visited on Saturday afternoon and what she make for supper. The journals were also used as basically their profit and loss statement. Grandma would record what they made selling alfalfa or how much the load of hogs brought.
As a child, I spent as much time as my parents would let me on the old farm. My favorite animal was Queen the collie. Many days she would go work with Grandpa in the fields, the best days was when Queen could spent the day with me in the playhouse. A few years ago during a visit I had the opportunity to read some on Grandma’s journals. I got goose bumps when I read “We went to the auction today and bought a puppy, I think we will name her Queen.”
This website is my version of my Grandma’s journals. My Design Journal.
Many items used in the design of this website are near and dear to my heart. The chalkboard above is my mother’s, the coffee mug was my grandpa’s, and the hammer in my signature was my father’s.
