That is exactly what journaling should be. And while I'm not an artist, at all, apparently just wanting to create is being an artist. Your pages are GREAT and you are making people like me create as well...


You are so right, but it is also so hard to let go of the thought of creating a nice, pretty or perfect page. I like the things you do and share with us!

Super inspiring! I've started countless journals only to stop a few days in because they aren't what I want them to be or because I fear someone reading them. I was able to overcome this ONCE and it was the longest journal I ever managed to keep once I gave myself permission to let it be potentially ugly... My journals always have lyrics in them!!! Thanks for the inspiration!


Love this whole post. What an awesome page! Thanks for the inspiration.

Sharing online definitely pushes me to be more authentic. I don't want to just pump out pretty pages, I want to SAY something.

Sharing is so important and so necessary!
