Okay, now you are wondering...who the heck is she talking about! In order to learn more about this great journal writer, check out wendy hale davis. Her journals are superb. I first saw her work in the fabulous book, Making Journals by Hand. Maybe you remember? Her pages are divided into columns with great writing and lettering. Sometimes she adds in little drawings. Now you are starting to remember. Go dig your book out and take a look and then check out her website.

A few years ago when my mom and I were in Paris we found a paper fish in the gutter. What is this we wondered outloud?? We did realized that it was April Fool's Day, but I guess I was assuming that only American's celebrated...something like a Hallmark holiday. duh,WRONG! Anyway, we also noticed as the day went on that there were fancy chocolate fish in the chocolatier windows and school children with poisson(fish) on their backs. So when we got home we decided to look up this holiday and Voila...Poisson d'Avril is now a part of our yearly celebrations! Go take a look here to learn more.Poisson d'Avril History and Games
