Journaling in July

So I am participating with the wonderful blog The Whimsical Cottage with her Jouranling in July journey - how is that for an alliteration: Check it out right here: http://thewhimsicalcottage.blogspot.com/2010/06/journaling-in-july-will-you-be-joining.html

Anyway, I am doing this for a number of reasons, the main one being that I am hoping to stop my procrastination. Not only will this get me started on the number of journal books I have bought over the years and haven't used, but it will also renew my creative juices which have been sorely lacking lately. Just look at my choices of unused journal options -

But I am stumped as to which book to use. I will see how I feel when I start, but I have narrowed it down to these four. I am intrigued to try her journal technique of using an old book, but I am bibliophile, and I am cringing about it. Though I have found one that would be fun to use as seen in the picture. I think mine will be a journal of randomness and anything and everything. Limiting myself will make it harder for me to do.

I can't wait to see what I can come up with and how everyone else is doing with this challenge.
Thanks for listening


  1. Hi Bleumoon, I know what you mean. I'm a little bit stumped as well. I'm going upstairs in a few minutes to get started. I've been collecting this and that for it, but I've not sat down and just jumped in. This is the morning, though!

    Hope you have a lot of fun with it!

  2. As a fellow bibliophile, I had a really hard time talking myself into painting and tearing pages out of a book at first too. If it makes you cringe, there's nothing wrong with using a blank one and text from other sources to get the same look. :)

    Good luck making your book decision, I can't wait to see what you come up with!
