Love your journal pages and the condom packet is so funny. (coming from an old, divorced mom who doesn't get much any more!)
I visited your blog and the resin work is so wonderful. Your friends are lucky to have such a talent in their lives, if you don't mind me saying so.

Thank you so much, thats a really nice thing to say and it means a lot.

Long time lurker, uh... no time poster...
But this thread is pretty inspirational - I've always been a little confused as to the true purpose of a journal, but now I see that there IS a creative outlet for my love of lists and organisation! Tongue Thank you for posting.

This thread has so many great ideas!! I want to contribute again, if I may and it doesn't just seem like a shameless plug (not selling anything). My craft blog

may be inspiring, or a kick in the butt if that's of any help Smiley

I'm making a new Art Journal.  I'm taking my mother to France for two weeks and I want to record our thoughts and this special time together.  To be honest we've never been close - but the last few years have changed dramatcially and I'd like something in our past to show our growth and our closeness.  Especially if things get bad again...at least I'll have these words and images to turn to. 

So, I've got this coffee table book on Paris and I've been taking gesso to the pages and intend to start on this shared art journal the moment we get to the airport.  Here are a few pics of the surfaces I'll be writing/drawing/pasting on:

Wow...your number system is so unconventionally organized! I love it! Generally, I just journal whatever comes to mind, but I absolutely MUST keep a list of books that I want to read in my journal.

I'm making my own journal to start a "Gratification Journal" it will only hold beautiful, happy, positive thoughts, goals, projects and things that I am grateful for! XD I am really excited to be starting it! I'm going to make it slightly "scrapbook" like in the sense that there will be stickers, stamps and paper glued in! <33

I can't believe that I just read twenty pages of this! Anyhow I also love to journal (I think we may have coined a new verb!) but generally I only journal during the summer as I am still in secondary (High) school and find that I lack the time and inspiration during the school year.

Anyhow I keep a travel  journal which is maybe 6 by 3/4 inches and by now almost as thick as it is wide! I love looking through it and rembering all of the holidays I have been on. At the beggining of each holiday I have full dairy enteries but it quickly morphs into a collage of pictures and a sentance her and there.

My summer journals are different. They are full of all sorts of random things. Pictures, doodles, photos, postcards, tickets, sweet wrappers, pressed flowers etc. I also have drawing of the landscapes and nature. Another thingI always include which I don't think anyone else has posted about is recipes. I love being able to remember a particular day by reading the recipe of the cookies or pasta sauce I made that day. This works especially well with sertain things which I only make during the summer like strawberry jam and elderflower cordial. Then each summer I copy the recipes from one summer journal to the next as I make my summer stuff. I also have quotes, writing, lists, thoughts etc in these journals.
If i am doing something special during the summer such as going to a festival or on a road trip then I try to write a few note on what I did each day. This sometimes takes bullet point format and sometimes essay style. This means that I can look back and read about what I did during the summer during the long, dark winter.

Whoa...long post! Anyhow I will try and post some pictures from my summer 2008 journal as soon as I get access to a scanner.

Happy journaling!
