Wow, Steel Magnolia, those are truly wonderful pages. They are the kind I aspire to, but can never quite achieve. Thank you for sharing.

I've just started my visual journal and i'm using lots of the ideas from this thread. I'm also doing a 'photo a day' bit. I constantly take photos so i figured i'd choose one I take each day (one that i wouldn't usually get developed) and just print it straight from the computer.

What I really want is an art journal - I love to write but my current journal never recieves any attention (blank pages intimidate me  Embarrassed) But in recently discovering this awesome section of Craftster, I think I've found my calling! Tomorrow I'm going to buy a huge fat plain notebook from the local stationer's and get going! (I have sooo many ideas now!)

I recently started my own journal. I've had many over the years, mostly written, but I never keep them going. For a while I even used to fake journal entries pretending that I wrote them on the actual day...  Wink

So here's my most recent one. I'm having a LOT of fun with it - -although it hasn't turned out even a little like I thought it would. Almost every idea has been stolen from this site. I huge thanks to everyone for inspiring me and letting me "borrow" your ideas.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery Cheesy

My journal is a huge binder with a Junior Mint cover. It's lined, which i'm not completely happy with, but it was just taking up space so I figured that I might as well use it.

No title page yet, and page 2 was supposed to be a calendar - but I havent bothered since the month is almost over. Hopefully i'll have an April calendar.

Page 3: the weather. Stolen from... Phebee
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=239360.0


Page 4: Things I learned today. Stolen from Jillee
I had wanted to paint over the post-its cause that looked great but couldn't be bothered getting my paints out. So far i've only used crayola markers Cheesy


Page 5: A photo a day. So far i've only done one photo cause i can never be bothered hooking my printer up to my laptop. But I like this page. Too bad only 2 photos can fit on a page.


Pg 6-7: Commentary on my tv shows


Pg 9: I'm going to start another music page later, but this one is just for those songs that get stuck in head for days, weeks, months at a time. And it's usually only a few lines of the song, so I quoted them here.


Pg 11: Dreams - not that I can ever remember them Tongue
I loved the quote I drew a picture frame around.
"Follow your dreams. Except the one where you fly. That never ends well."


Pg 12: My TO DO crafts page


My book list. I have about 10 pages with 300 books listed. I went overboard on the black lines which i'm not happy about. So i'm ignoring decorating these pages for a while.


Notes on books I read. I decided to write them on lined yellow paper.


Collage of things I want.


My pathetic hole punch dot page.


Thanks for looking!! And the inspiration!! Cheesy

I have been browsing this site for a few weeks now and decided I would join up after being so inspired by your journals, I have been planning on starting one for a while, especially since becoming a mom but the thought of a blank page to fill everyday kinda put me off, I can see this being something I enjoy adding to each day and a good way to give me a little down time after the babies are in bed, I love all your idea's

Here's a really cool idea. Ever since my boyfriend I went to a park for a picnic, playing on his guitar, feeding the birds and reading poetry, we've come up with a little game based on a poem, by Elizabeth Barret Browning.

You know, the poem that goes, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways..

Well we'd text each other starting with that famous words for e.g.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways,

#1. How you always say you'll stop spoiling me rotten but you still end up spoiling me.

So I THINK my boyfriend is compiling all of the thing's we've said to each other in a book, actually I'm 100% sure. Smiley He always said I'm pyschic.

Oh and I bet he's going to include in all our "Starbucks Moments" we've had. Its basically where we find time to go to Starbucks or any good coffee place and talk and talk and talk.. and realising that we always find something new about each other.

I guess what I'm saying is too start a shared journal with someone you love or do a journal to give them on those special anniversaries. maybe once he's done with the journal and given it to me I might post it, that is if that's what he's working on, my psychic powers aren't always accurate.
