Hi all, so good to catch up with you and I thought today I would do a bit of a ‘my latest’ type post, it feels like a good way to say hello and get you up to date with some of what is running around my head.
January is often not an easy month is it, I LOVE Christmas and as such although start the new year with a fresh start mentality I think it still is not the positive boost to me that November and December is, in fact I love Autumn so much and Winter can sometimes feel not as fun BUT I am determined to embrace every single season and its joys and what I love BEST about winter is the COSY aspect.
It is the season for warmth (even if its easy to feel a bit chilly) and for hot drinks (same in Summer though!) and for blankets see Crochet Fun HERE and in my case ‘slankets’ … more on that later.
I wanted to tell you what I am up to, reading, craft and more this January .
Lets celebrate the journal…. Why do we love our Journals? I’m going to tell you several reasons why (and I think there are a LOT of them….)
Journals are massive right now, you see notebooks of all sizes, thickness, paper quality, different designs.
I have spoken to others to ask if they will also share with you what THEY love about THEIR journals, and they DID… it’s all HERE FOR YOU as you read, so many varied reasons… so fascinating, and I appreciate all the contributions to the article in the quote section. ENJOY THE INSPIRATION….
So many types of journal of course, there is the blank, the lined the dotted, the grid,…
Would you like hardback or soft back, does it need to be portable, how big a bag are you prepared to carry?
Then of course do you need to transport pens, washi tape, (unheard of by many this time last year) …sticky notes, fine liners, how do you like YOURS?
Okay it’s not over yet! But who knows what I will create from one moment to the next (you also. .)
…I’m impulsive in these things. ..at the same time I have determination and if I have passion for something I never give up. I’m not fickle.
I have my hands full enough…apart from my home commitments , I now have 2 Facebook groups and this new blog! -it keeps me busy! …but I love it.
It’s all a labor of love…what you will see in the tagline to this blog is ..one woman’s mission to make the world a more positive place. .. I really believe in it…it’s one of my biggest aims when I wake up till I go to sleep.
I love my journal…or should I say journals with an S! I have so many on the go, how did this happen, my latest journal revival was because I saw ideas of BULLET JOURNALING in Spring and got all excited, not initially… but after I saw all the ways that people were using ART in them.
