Relocating

Later this week I'll be moving my "everyday journaling" into this new journal, Creative Days.  I made this last August in the class I taught for NorBAG in Arcata.  And I've since titled it and kitted it out to make ready for use.

I've decided not to put dates or annual seasons on the covers of these journals, since they always take me longer to fill than anticipated.

You could say this is the current incarnation of my shabby journal series, begun in Mary Ann Moss's Remains of the Day.  

I still keep a regular writing journal, and have since...I can't remember, actually.  I know I began the enterprise when I was in high school, then took a break before picking up the operation again over 30 years ago. 

I've been pondering how to bring my shabby or junk journal and regular writing journal together.  And I have an idea that's in development.  My plan is to create the hybrid journal and be ready to move into it when Creative Days comes to an end...which should be when I run out of pages in the current writing journal.  Late this year is what I'm anticipating.

Beautiful journal! Good luck combining the everyday notebook writing and the beauty of an art journal ... it will be a keepsake for sure.

What fun these are. As I don't keep a written journal - I never have -I'll be fascinated to see what develops, if you're happy to show us.

Love the binding. I have to review how that is done. It did not make sense the first time through. The innards look great, too! :-)

Beautiful pages and binding! I will be interested to hear how you combine the two journals. I have kept a written journal, but never an "art" journal. I would like to combine the two, since that way I would be sure to do the art part. I write at night and I'm too tired (lazy) to get out supplies. :) Have a happy!
