I really have no idea what my journalling will be about, maybe reflection, inspirations, random thoughts and probably some ranting! I'm on holidays (except part time work) from Uni now so I will hopefully get up to lots of mischief!! Cheesy

 I've been looking around Flickr and there are some awesome journals out there for inspiration - This lady, her style is very vintage which isnt really me completely, but her process is great - I love all the layering and mixed media!! She makes some really beautiful books!


That lady is from Az where I live! I wonder if she's on Craftster.... hmmm


Looking for dead pointe shoes.

Just updated the first post, organized it better and put all of the links and journal post starter ideas on the same page, so it's easier for you all to find Wink

Also, I'm going to be closing this swap at 9PM on October 31st instead of midnight so I can have partners ready by midnight so you can all start writing your journals on November 1st instead of my original plan of you having to wait until midday on November 1st Tongue

I'm off to bind mine now. It's raining so stupidly heavily that going outside just isn't something I feel like doing.

Ok I answered this on my questionaire but I will be sending a moleskine journal and dont mind
what kind I recieve.
The moleskine will be perfect I think because it has 60pgs so one for writing an entry and one for
misc decoration, colorful journal prompt, or etc for everyday.
Lol I feel like wether your in the same country or not this is like a pen pal letter but better
because its indepth and there are 30 days worth of "letters"

I absolutely hate the color pink & it's family members!!

Just sent my info - I haven't done a swap since my daughter was born (almost 2 years ago)!  I'm excited to get going - planning to make a journal by working on one page per day and binding it when it's all done.  Not sure how it'll be bound though - depends on how thick it turns out.  I'm hoping not to over-think my journal entries and decoration and just go with the mood of each day or what's on my mind - my life is pretty mundane, but my brain is always overactive!

Just sent in my questionnaire!

Are you making a homemade journal or a recon journal?

Do you prefer to receive a journal that someone hand mad our reconned?
I have no preference

I "cut" out my cover and pages last night. Now do I decorate as I go and then bind? Or bind it all now? I think I will bind at the end, even tho I found the bookbinding stuff I needed yesterday. Will begin by gesso-ing some pages to get me in the mood.

It is also rainy here but not so rainy as to prevent me from going outside for a bit.
Have fun all.
