I've been seeing the 30 Day Journal Challenge popping up all over Blogland lately. It's already a good few days in but I thought I'd give it a go over the weekend. The first prompt was to do a full page design introducing yourself, including things that you like. This was mine:I found this much harder than I thought I would. I love doodling as a rule. No problems with it over scrapbook pages, in little corners of books... Fill a page? Blimey, this took me ages and as you can see there is still a fair old chunk of white space there. I may add to it as I think of more things. The three angels are my girls, the stars are because I just love the shape, I'm going to do a couple of skulls but my first attempts were disastrous. Am undecided whether to continue with the whole challenge. I may dip in and out of it. I do want a journal about me - this will sound morbid but I truly don't mean it that way... I want it for my girls when I'm gone. Don't panic, nothing wrong with me. But when us sisters read some of my Mum's diaries after she passed away we found out so much more about her, about the woman as opposed to 'just' the Mum that we knew if that makes sense. I'd love my girls to have that insight into me.
If nothing else it finally got me started on this notebook my sister gave me a couple of Christmases ago - I've been to scared to use it in case I ruined it. This signature page is now the first page.I tell you what though, I already admired people who do zendoodling/zentangling but now, wow I'm really in awe. Check out Angie and Kay to see what I mean!
Thank you as always for stopping by :)
