Checked on my journal last week and found all the twine wrapped around it gone. The journal had fallen to the ground and and all the loose papers inside were scattered and buried in the fallen leaves. This gave me a chance to check the disintegration (idea from cloth, paper, scissors) or destruction of the papers that were in the journal. I tried not to peek, but there were stains from all the rain, and eroding on the journals front and back covers. I bundled up the papers, got them back in the journal, took some pictures, and a few days later attached the journal to my back porch with torn fabric. Oh yeah, something is also chewing on the lace wrapped around the journal. Squirrel?
