Hey Everybody,
 Here are some of the things I've been fooling around with. I am captivated by old photographs,   found objects, and ephemera! I cut and paste things in my journal when I should probably be spending my time writing... But playing is just SO MUCH fun!

i think the picture aspect of your journal will be so neat to look at years later as well as reading what you wrote. thats a good idea to make a journal even more special. awesomness.

Hey cutting + pasting can be just as cathartic as writing.  I love the "inspire" page, especially the key.

Thanks for the snaps ya'll. It's so nice to share stuff here! The pictures are compiled from a variety of sources. I collect old magazines from the 40's and 50's and clip ads and pictures. I save things from everywhere- museum brochures, starbucks brochures, pages from airline magazines, paper bags, etc... I also scour the web for vintage images. There are great things out there, but they can be tricky to find. Old postcard sites, vintage magazine cover art sites and places that sell old travel posters are good places to start. Some good site links are:

Hope you all find some treasures! Have fun!  Cheesy
