Jillie, your journal is gorgeous!

Its realy inspiring  Smiley I'm glad you shared it with us.

Like a few people have already said, I have lots of trouble writing in a typical journal - I get kind of over awed by a completely blank page. But having little sections for various types of thought is such a good idea!

I think you're gonna be seeing a whole load of journals inspired by yours pretty soon  Cheesy

I love the tree window journal page, that is an adorable idea.

I'm thinking of starting a travel journal, not exactly original but one I can look back on with fondness.

I use the website 43things.com to document goals and ambitions and was thinking of journalling about my progress and achievements.

Wow, I love your journal, Jillie! I've tried traditional journalling before (many times), but I can never stick with it. Having lists that you can add to is a great idea! I've been wanting to keep a visual journal for a while, and I've been told to keep a food/health diary. I'm thinking I could combine both of them, plus record my thoughts and activities in the form of lists.
Thanks for the inspiration! Smiley

I really like your "what I learned today" section. I think we'd all be better off if we wrote something like that, to remember what we learned, since it's so often forgotten.

i journal almost daily.
I would take a picture, but it's really nothing fascinating. All it is is me rambling on about life in general. How I'm doing, what I'm thinking about, etc.

In my Creative Writing class, we had to write for ten minutes each day and they gave us prompts, such as "The hardest lesson I've ever learned." or something such as that and we'd just write and write and write until the time was up. We then had a chance to read them infront of the class, and we found by the end of the semester that if we start on one subject, we keep writing about the other subjects that run through our heads at the time. The beginning of the paper can be about something as serious as death of a loved one, to ending up being about pizza.

I think if you just start writing, and not think about what you have to write, that you could come up with something you didn't even realize. As crazy as that sounds.

Sorry for my rambling, btw.

I love these ideas.  I'm also a list person....I can't stand writing too much.  I'm more of a typer.  But, you miss out on that old-school journal feel if you keep an online blog. 

I'm definitely gonna try some of these things out, thanks so much!

I have a lot of downtime at work so that's where my journal is. Whenever I have some free time and something to say, I'll write something. Its just my thoughts and what's going on in my life. I write in it about once or twice every week or so. I love your ideas. I for sure would like to start up something like that.

This is so clever and pretty!
I like to write down interesting dreams; this makes it easier for me to get started if I haven't written in a while, because I always have some random dream I want to share, and writing down a couple dreams you remember is not as overwhelming as trying to write down everything that's happened. I often find looking back that some of the dreams are sort of reflective of what was going on at the time, despite all the ridiculousness that my brain likes to add.
I also like to stick bits and bobs on the cover like ticket stubs and name tags.

I am SO gonna copy you!  Wink

Seriously, journaling for me is only when I'm feeling sad or angry, so it's not really a good record. Your journal will be something that I'd want to find in my attic 100 yrs from now. So, I think I gonna make a similar journal because this is SUCH a great idea!

I like the tissue paper front, too!

I've never been much of a journaler, but these are such awesome ideas! Yr so clever!  Grin
