Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal

I ended up throwing it out since there was food inside (one of the pages says to document your dinner, for example) so I never got around to finishing the rest, but then purchased a new one in 2011 to start over. I haven’t done anything with it in at least a year if not longer, but I got a pretty good start on it. Come back in a few weeks to see more WTJ photos!
