DD (16) when asked about christmas presents said she wants a wrecking journal, apparently there is a book called "Wreck your Journal" or something similar?? - I am a bit clueless where to start to look for the book and/or journal?

Any ideas?

TIA

It is a book by Keri Smith about creativity.

Ok, I'm a boring old fuddy duddy, but to buy  a  book and be instructed to spill food on it is just gross.
And weird.
And wasteful.

I guess that's the whole point, but I was brought up to look after books, so to me it seems just plain WRONG!

They are awesome!  My 13 yo neice has one and it's been great fun wrecking it.  She does get a little upset when it gets too wrecked though laughing2.gif but she has put a lot of thought and care into 'wrecking' hers.

yep agree, spent all these years teaching her to care for books now this lol but it makes sense now I've seen it, dd is a bit of an artist!


Great to hear TopsyTurvy biggrin.gif


thankyou, thankyou!  I was googling and kept coming up with weird pieces from blogs blush.gif

So I should probably buy the book and then any journal? unsure.gif

No the book is the journal that you wreck.  Each page has instructions/suggestions on what to do with it.  So no need to buy the book and a seperated journal to wreck.
