Kelli from There’s No Place Like Home asked her readers to blog about their paper crafts. I cannot create anything nearly as pretty as she can but, I’ve been learning alot from her tutorials. Kelli also hosts the Show & Tell Friday’s, meme that I participate in. She’s a great gal. Be sure to stop in and visit her.
A craft that I enjoy is clipping an pasting beautiful images into my daily journal.
I use this journal to jot down reminders, my “to-do”list, prayer request, the names of people that I am praying for and so much more. I remind myself of calls that need to be made and errands that need to be run.
This Orange Crowned Wabler was from a card that a friend sent to me. The image on the front was so beautiful that I wanted to preserve it in some way. Years from now I can look through my old journal and remember her.
During the spring and summer many of my notes pertain to what’s going on in my gardens.
I try to find pictures that inspire me. I love vibrant colors and seasonal images the most. In the winter I will be able to look back over the summer journal entries to find inspiration when planning next years gardens.
Anything goes in my journal. It’s my own place to create. I hope that you’ve enjoyed the tour of my scrapbook journal.
