You are very creative and oh so talented - and neat! I don't think you should rip anything out or of your journal.  You'd be surprised how telling those pages can be when you get a bit older.  Sometimes what you don't like says alot more about you than what you're happy with.  Keep it up! You inspire me... Wink

This rocks! I agree with everyone else that this inspires me-- especially the sticker and weather pages!

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield but to my own strength.

Wow! What an awesome journal! Very inspiring.
I also started a visual journal at the beginning of the year, but mine is mainly paint and paper. I'd like to write more in my journal - you've given me some great ideas! Thanks! Smiley

Phebee: Can I ask (what may prove to be a really stupid question) about your process? Do you let the papers inspire what the page will be about, or do you get the inspiration for the page then choose the paper? Sorry if that's a dumb question, but surely it's not just me who might be wondering!  I realize everyone works differently and you might have a totally different way of doing things that I never thought of.

The reason I ask....after seeing your beautiful work, I am itching to dig into my ridiculously large collection of crafty stuff and do this! I have sooo many supplies - but I am such a Type A person that I can't bear to use something for fear of it not turning out right!

You've already inspired me tremendously, maybe this will be the final little push off the cliff!

Thanks again for sharing your work!

Wow, this is amazing! (are you a librarian?)
I'm not a librarian, I'm a student (of computing of sorts)

I want to say since my first post I have already started journaling again when I was "blessed" with a super boring meeting at work. You gave me sooo many great ideas!! Thanks so much for the inspiration! I hope you continue to fill up your page where you've helped someone. You should include us (definitely me!)!!

And I love this idea...wish I'd just gone 3-D and done it months ago. Sigh. Better late than never!
It's funny you should mention it, because the last date stamp on that page had been 14th March, but last night I both thanked Craftster and 'You're welcomed' it!

That's such an awesome question! I have had to get my journal out to answer it. I have quite a few pages scattered throughout my journal, with just background papers on and no writing, waiting for me to write on them. And quite a few collages that i've made which I will one day get around to writing on.
I don't like white pages so it helps to inspire me when they have a background.

But every once in while I get an idea and I think "I have just the right papers for that page" so I dig them out of my box and use them.

My advice to you is to think "What if it turns out right!" If you use your supplies and make a nice page out of them, you will be so much prouder of yourself. And the thing with the journal, is that it's something you can keep for the rest of your life.

PS I love the guardian.
I know I've replied to this already, but I have some things to add, after thinking about it last night.

The Guardian is how I first found out about Craftster. They did a "Crafty Stuff" supplement with the Saturday paper (which I still have at home!) which had a small article on and the web address of Craftster.

I also have a double-page spread (so to speak) in my journal, of cartoons that have made me laugh. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to with it yet...

your work is hugely inspiring, a true credit to your talents  Grin
I love so many pages, I cant possibly pick a fave
I do have a teeny favour if you could be so kind?
would you have the link to the picture on the page, "books to read" of the girl reading surrounded by books?
(I appreciate that link by the way to the awesome photo site!)
I have a collage to do for an assignment and would love to use elements of that pic if possible, Ive been trawling the photo site but cant find it
thanks again for all the fabulous inspiration!

I'm a terribly neat person too, but I have loads of pictures and scraps of things and I really want to do something with them.  Your journal has totally inspired me to get on with it! Smiley

These pages are fab and very inspirational - thanks for sharing them.  I love the weather, directory of beautiful things and dressform pages - I may pop to WH Smiths this weekend & get myself a date stamp!

Thanks also for the links to Appleseed & the photo site.
