journal art

I’ve been doing a lot of journaling lately….I used to do it all the time, and have had a diary or journal since I was old enough to write. But, in the last few years, my journals have gotten less and less inspiring. They are usually filled with To Do Lists, important info, and work data. I wanted to get back to when I used to actually enjoy writing and creating art in my journal. And while, the circumstances for my delve back into my enthusiastic journaling were not exactly positive, I have remember just how much of a calming effect and a release of tension they are for me:

Does anyone else like to journal? Does it have the same effective on you? Send me pics and I will post them on my blog (one day, someone will actually answer me and it will be awesome!)

Jess!!!! I'm a fellow journaler!! šŸ™‚ I have kept a journal since I was 7 years old–I have 17 total. My first journal is filled with “letters” that I would write to myself, “Dear Megan….from, Megan” hahaha!! and little Lion King stamp drawings šŸ™‚ Most of my journal entries are words but I do have some line drawings, paintings, calligraphy etc…I like to decorate the covers- last year I painted a cactus on the front of my journal. šŸ™‚
