Catching Up

I did pretty well with the Art Journal Everyday until school started. I skipped the two weeks we've been in school, but I got back in gear today. We'll see. Here's what I did while I was actually journaling every day and a couple of older ones I had forgotten to photograph. I'm still journaling with limited supplies as I can't get up to my workroom due to the broken bone in my foot. It's been seven weeks, but I'm still in the boot.

Another challenge

I've accepted another challenge having to do with journaling. I think this one will be easier to follow through on. Journaling Everyday is the challenge. You don't need to finish a page a day or anything, just do something in your journal even if it is only 10 minutes worth of something. I signed on for August, but I actually started July 28. I love the spreads that Julie shares where she shows just what she added each day until the spread is done. Maybe I'll try that, too.

List 3/52

June 30 journal page, originally uploaded by Crazyquilter.

This was the hardest list. I pondered it for days and finally just sat down and wrote something.

Things I learned in Mexico

Well, the 52 lists isn't working so well. There were some list prompts that were just hard for me. I did manage to do lists 2 and 3. I need to see what I've missed and work on them.

52 Weeks, 52 Lists

A new challenge is just what I need to get myself journaling. I actually wrote a page recently about doing a 365 with a list a day in my journal. This is more doable. Maybe I'll start slowly with a list a week and nudge myself back into journaling. Maybe...

I used a pre-painted page. Reminder to self, don't use such dark pages to write on. I still need to work on the facing page.
