Today a copy of Journaling from www.stampingtons.com came in the mail. Really exciting. Sometimes I just sit there and look at a blank piece of paper, then I punch 3 holes in it for the notebook, then I stare at it some more. No more. From now on I have lots of inspiration, there's everything from far out from way too cutsey for me but I'll always have ideas.
I have been keeping a journal for a long time and I know there are many others of you who do. I've never done art journaling up until a few years ago. I found out that I could work our some bad things as well as good things. It's great to see how the art has changed, from just putting pictures in to being creative. Some days it just explodes all over the page, and others well like I say, I just sit there and try to put something down. I talked to one lady recently who told me that she has kept journals for a long time, through some really bad times for her, she doesn't do art, just might sketch a little picture in the border. She laughingly says that she's going to burn them before she dies. I wish we could live our lives so that we don't put down any of the bad feelings but I don't think I can. I'm hoping that I live my life so that my girls can appreciate my journals when I'm gone.
Boy, did I get off the subject of being happy to get a new magazine!!
God bless you, Diane
