30 days of lists : days 21 – 30 (and what I thought of it)

October 7, 2014

Well 30 days of lists is over! Here are my last set of lists, followed by my thoughts on joining the challenge officially for the first time. So! This was a fun and easy journaling challenge. They run it every March and September with a different set of prompts. I’ve followed it in the past but never joined officially until now, because I didn’t want to pay for something I could just come up with by myself. And of course, you can always see the prompts once they are released, or go through the old ones. However, joining “officially” gave me access to the private blog and Facebook group. I checked this once a day. I didn’t get super involved,…

30 days of lists : days 11 – 20

September 25, 2014

So this is kind of a crazy week. David has had pneumonia going on two weeks now, and I am also commuting to the medical center (over an hour drive) for meetings, which has really thrown off our morning and evening routine. I’m behind on many things, but somehow I’ve kept up with 30 days of lists! I haven’t been posting them every single day to Instagram, but here is the second ten days in full. I’m still having fun with this. When I post the last set of lists I’ll write a little more about the project as a whole. Have a fantastic day! The weekend is almost here!

30 days of lists : days 1 – 10

September 11, 2014

This month I’m participating in 30 days of lists, a fun journaling idea that challenges you to make one list each day. I’ve been sharing mine daily on Instagram, but today I’m sharing the first ten days with you here. Obviously I’m keeping it super simple! I stamped out the prompts beforehand, and each day I add the washi tape and my list, then snap a quick photo. It’s been easy and fun to keep up with. I love fun little projects like this every once in awhile, and I’ve enjoyed looking through the hashtag #30lists on Instagram to see what everyone else includes on their lists.

30 days of lists blog hop

August 26, 2014

In September I’m taking part in the 30 days of lists challenge. I’ve followed it for a couple of years and finally decided to officially join. For every day of the month there is a prompt for a list and you can choose to document it however you like. I wanted to keep mine super simple but tangible, and I didn’t want to spend any money. So I grabbed this little notebook that I already had. The inside cover had some random doodles that didn’t relate so I covered it up with some patterned paper and washi tape.   Today, as an introduction, there is a little blog hop. I’ve chosen a topic from the March 2011 lists and made a page…

art journal / 1

July 31, 2014

I have been wanting to try art journaling for a long time now. I used to think I wasn’t artsy enough for it, but when I realized that it could be whatever I wanted it to be and I started seeing simple pages I loved (like this) I was in. I needed some kind of guidance or structure before I began, though. Eventually, as I was going through my Bible study and underlining quotes and verses, I realized that it was the perfect inspiration. I finally got a little extra time and decided to just go for it. I didn’t want to spend any money so I’m using a regular journal that I hadn’t written in yet. It is ruled…
