Only three weeks have passed in January and you have created so many beautiful pages. You are quite fast!

I have worked on quite a few pages but then, putting them together got me stuck until today. They are so different, it would look like a strange mix of whatever struck my fancy that day. And nobody would ever look at it later, except maybe me, and even that is not sure! So, I thought that maybe splitting them in three would help.

One would be a simple collection of art pieces I made. Just a collection without decorations, and with the few writings really aimed at helping me make it better next time or remembering how I did it. That's a place where I could go if I want to see all the wood fires I tried to draw year after year for example. I'm thinking of using a binder and maybe plastic pockets.
What do you do with your art?

The next one, would contain all the sketches, ideas and so on of things to make or craft one day. This could include patterns for automates, sketches of future summer blouses or just rough sketches of ideas of things to draw, tiny pieces of fabric and more. This would be more like a recording of the brainstorming before the actual creative process began.
Do you keep everything neatly organized, stack it in a box, or just throw it away?

The last one would be a recording of moments or things I enjoyed or that were important to me that day. The subjects could change, it's just what I am thinking now. I would draw it without spending days on one sketch, so I'll see in a few months if my drawing skills have improved. I aim to draw 3 sketches a week.

All of them are related to art and have art pieces inside but are they art journals? Maybe it is not an art journal I will create after all...

Also, I discovered that this whole journaling thing takes a lot of time and I sometimes find that it prevents me from doing other crafty things in the time I can use for crafts/arts( like sewing myself a new blouse for example).

Laser cut? I wish I had access to a laser cutter too! You just show another fun use for laser cutting.
The one your dad lost is my favorite.

Great job even if the sewing isn't perfect up close. Who's going to look at it from a few inches anyway? 
Did you use foam under the fabric?

Thanks for the name of the fabric paint. I'll see if they carry it here.

That1girl, I won't make boxes for the cats after all. They will keep their cardboard ones and they likely like them best anyway!
You always find cute fabrics. That quilt and pillow are lovely and look very comfy. Do you have your own tags to sew on the items you create?

That1girl, the fabric baskets look really cute. How big can they be? I am wondering if I could make one sturdy enough for a cat to sleep in?

Lindyv321, so many stenciled T-shirts. How do they hold in the washing machine?

Breadbaker, I really enjoy needle felting and I hope you will too. I like the cutesy of needle felted projects. I only have a tiny stash of roving and I used a 40 percent of coupon to buy a tool that holds three needles at the same time and a mat, which is in fact a kind of brush. Both the tool and the mat have helped a lot in not poking my fingers so much. Can we see a picture of your hearts?
