I just finished my fattest journal ever. I've had this one for about two months. It contains lots of text, photos from my birthday, flower petals, collages, drawings. It ends with the death of a loved one. A lot of sadness right now.
I want to start my new journal on a happier note, with some light....


I never stopped loving you, I just stopped showing it.

Oh Battenberg, I love your prompts page  Cheesy
I keep mine in an envelope at well except it's not cut up and my ideas are on 3 notes, not seperate papers for them Smiley
And I really like how you did the 'Things I love'
May I ask you for some of your original prompts Smiley? (I am very curious)

Antigone, I have seen your journal earlier today on jr_nal and I really like the fatness of it Cheesy
Sorry for your loss Sad
I hope happyness will return to you

And to finish of, a note to myself: how come it took me so long to find out about Jillie's numbering system? It's awesome!

These are not exactly journals. I call them "green notebooks" (althought, as you can see, there is an x-men one XDD). I started the first on 2005 because clases were boring and I wanted to do other things without being obvious. I use them for everything, from writing little stories (or long ones) to taking some class notes.

The covers of the seven I've finished. They are in order, from oldest (top left) to newest (the one that is alone)

Random pages from different notebooks.

I always use the last page to doodle ^__^

So many great ideas on this thread and I've only had time to look at 2 pages of it! I too am a failed journaller - creative writing student it all gets a bit too intimidating - so I love the idea of hopping around from page to page, having a folder of writing prompts (thanks to OP for these http://www.canteach.ca/elementary/prompts.html ) to 'just write' for 10 minutes, a page reserved for doodling, etc. etc. etc. - So many great ideas I think I need to lie down in a darkened room now before my brain combusts!   Cheesy

elvesparklydoodas: thanks for posting that link - wow, the sheer amount of prompts..!!
I really don't like the first one though - as if one needs to be reminded?  Wink Cheesy I would do the opposite...

LOL - what I don't like about myself is my total inability to drag myself off this thread and do some chores  Cheesy Or maybe that's one of my good points I should be proud of?  Grin

STILL only up to page 17 - have 2 further great lists of prompts - maybe I should just fill a journal with things I could write if I had time?  Cheesy Love this link from craftricia http://www.geocities.com/papabear1701/prompt_library.html  And this list below, posted by athenamat? about a year ago.......Now then - must move off my butt and DO rather than DREAM  Roll Eyes

Right now, I am feeling
Detail a reoccuring dream
I'm looking forward to
I love this about my body
I really miss
Today I accomplished
The last time I cried was
I was irrationally irritated when
My best/worst traits are
Something memorbale this week
The people in my life
My favorite possession is
I didn't speak my mind when
Detail a favorite memory
Make a list of things going right
My talents are
Make a list of things to do before you die
Make a list of ways to save money
I'm seriously scared of
I'd like people to think of me as
My favorite time of the day is
My favorite holiday is
I judge people when
The best advice I ever received
The best day of my life was
My favorite time of the year is
I am inspired by
My comfort foods are
You are my best friend because
I'm really craving
Detail where you are right now
The best meal I had this week
When I want to feel good I go
I was generous when I
Today I am grateful for
If I could be someone else
Write about a belief that you've discarded
This week I laughed when
If I had a million dollars
My favorite part of nature is
What always makes you laugh?
The best present I ever recieved
The last hard decision I made
If I could change one thing
The hardest lesson I learned was
Romance in my life exists when
If I were an animal
I love you because
My favorite part of the city is
List all the things that have happened to you only once in your life

I love this thread. I started a journal ages ago but only ever did one page, I always meant to go back to it but never really knew what to put in it. Now I have heaps of ideas. Can't wait to get back into it. I think I will start this afternoon.

OMG, I art journal about everything...whatever happens to be on my mind at the time that I open my journal.  Some days it's more art and other days it's more journaling...just depends on what my mood is that day.
Here are some of my "creations":


I art journal every single day (it is my means of sanity) so I have hundreds, these just happened to be the first ones I came across in my photos on my laptop.

I'm about to give my first Art Journaling Workshop here in my little hometown in Alabama and am so excited to be sharing the hows and whys of something I love.

Peace & Love,



Art sets my soul free.
