I journal, journal journal! Make the journal booklets, sometimes...buy them ready made...yes ...but the main goal is to enter stuff into the journal.
I am participating in a group this year, Documented Life Project. Headed up by a talented group of women, 5 of them, I will list 1...Roben-Marie Smith and you can read about the information on her blog through www.robenmarie.com
We take a journal, or in my case I took an agenda/journal and I use it to incorporate scheduled practices as well as the prompts offered within the group but, I found I really like to add everyday things to the pages and that tells me and anyone looking through the book, what has been happening.
I found out right away I do a LOT more than I realized and I go places a lot more than I thought.
I used a Moleskine agenda book. Already it had the calendar. The pages are bit thinner than I like so I prepared pages before I used them, that helped prevent bleeding through and the like.
Here are a few spreads:
Another journal group I belong to is helping me grow personally. "One Little Word 2014" by Ali Edwards.
I don't have pictures to offer, but she helps us to learn through one word...more. I chose "Listen"
I am late to joining this group so I am still working on month 1 while everyone else is in month 2.
If you are interested in learning more about her and the group go to:
I also practice sketch and painting and techniques in other journals, so I keep a lot of journals going. A girl can't have toooo many!
Pick up a journal today and either just write, dump the day, do a little doodle...experience the freeing of the spirit.
Have a terrific Day!
