Scrapbook Journal

I have kept a journal ever since I can remember. Putting my words on paper has always been a joyful experience for me. So when I came across the concept of adding pictures to my pages I was hooked.

Below are some pages that I have shared from my journal.

I choose pictures that inspire me to focus on my home. Pictures such as a beautiful kitchen sink or a colorful garden.

Keeping a scrapbook journal also helps me cut down on the amounts of magazines that I have laying around. After I read them, I tear out the pages of interest. Then through out the week I trim and glue them onto blank journal pages.

Each day I am inspired by a new image.

What do you do that inspires you to be the better keeper of your home?

    I'd love to do this! It's much more insipring than just a file folder, which I have, & is a better record of one's time & thoughts as well. My second daughter enjoys doing this. She gets a real kick out of looking back at her earlier efforts ("When I was little, Mom"…..she's only 14!).

    thanks for posting this,

    I keep a journal (hand written and one on the computer which will one day become a book!).
    I never really got into scrapbooking! But I have seen some fabulous ones!
    Keep doing what you do!

    Great Journal! I admire you for organizing it so nicely. My ideas usually go on the computer but aren’t as lovely as your photo wish list. Thanks for sharing.

    I have three ring binders that are divided into catagories where I have taped pics from magazines.

    I have spent precious time putting these together with my daughters. They each have their own notebooks.

    I really love your journal. I love that you can put down your thoughts on everything and it helps jog your memory to do or try things later. I want to start one of these too. It beats having scraps of paper everywhere.

    I love your journal…what a great idea and fun to look back at I am sure…I started a blog journal. It has various blogs for me to check and ideas that I see that I may want to try…I got tired of all the little pieces of paper around the computer!
