Lorraine means.....collage

I did this page for an a-z journal that I am taking part on Alternative. It was my turn to suggest J is for journalling but I did not want scrapbooky type stuff but more of a playing with words cutting them up etc. I found the meaning of my name on which gives you the meaning of your name. Of course it just generalises and you choose what fits you at the time!! but I was surprised that it came up with a couple of truths about me and I have put these phrases on to this collage. You probably cant see the phrases so they are: 1. youre always up to something are relaxed, chill and very likely to go with the flow (yes! after I have had a glass of wine and the kids are in bed!!), times you can be a little flaky and irresponsible 4. you also have a very active imagination often get carried away with your thoughts are wild, crazy and a huge rebel(I suppose I was when I was younger!!) have a lot of enthusiasm but it fades rather quickly and 7. you dont stick with any one thing for very long. I think these phrases would be good to make into one of those "books of me" which I often find rather self-analytical and indulgent but think I will make mine a funny one as life is too short for therapy!!
