Scrap Book Journaling...

Some times when I look back over 2009, I wonder what happened, that I quit doing so many things that I loved to do. I rarely blogged, I read the least amount of books that I ever have, I didn't write in my journals very often..... These are some of the things that I enjoy was a different kind of year and for so many reasons I am glad to see 2009 done and 2010 here.

My husband was off the first ten days of the new year so I didn't have a lot of time to think about what I would like to do with this new year ahead. One of the things that I do want to do more of is scrap book journaling.

This kind of journaling is different than most journals as it is made up of clippings of my favorite things from magazines or just pretty stuff that I enjoy. Journaling this way gives me a chance to be creative and journal all at the same time...for little money. Regular scrap booking supplies can be costly. I buy sketch books at Aaron Bros. The paper is heavy enough to glue pictures and write on. I got mine on sale for $12.00.

I write all diffeernt kinds of things in these journals..scriptures, my do lists and goals..

I thought I would share with you this morning one of the things that I hope to incorporate more of in my days in this new year...more thoughts later..have a blessed day!

Yes, isn't this kind of journaling so much fun? I am on my second journal now, although it has taken me a long time to fill the first one. I am sorry to say that I haven't journaled for months... maybe since Thanksgiving or so. One of my goals for this year, like yours, is to do more of this. A little of the pressure has lifted in my life, but there is more waiting to take its place.

Patty, thanks so much for the lovely note you sent me via regular mail. I hope to reply soon. It touched me so much that you would take the time to send a handwritten note. God bless you, my friend.

God bless,

Thank you for sharing your lovely book...I have done some of these in the past and they have become treasures to me. I need to make a goal to do for the year 2010...
