Do You Journal Daily?

In a word: No. But I sure try!

Some days are impossibly busy. Or I am impossibly tired. Or wicked sick. But, in general, if I can squeeze it in, I try to spend at least a couple of minutes working in my journal every day. For the last week, I’ve been trying Julie Fei-Fan Balzer‘s trick of working in my journal for 10 minutes a day. If you haven’t tried it and you always feel like you don’t have time to journal, I highly recommend giving it a whirl! You’d be surprised at what you can accomplish in just a few minutes a day. (Julie’s class 30 Days in your Journal is awesome!)

Here’s a page I just finished:


Even though I was feeling very sick, I was able to finish this page with just a few minutes a day.

Here’s the one I’m working on now:


For this one, I’m making a spread about the way I indulge myself. I’ll post another picture when it’s finished!

How about that face stamp? I am super proud of it because I carved it myself. Yay!

    Great face stamp! Love the way it looks! Is this from a linoleum block?

    • craftymoira says :

      Thanks, everyone! The face is carved out of Speedy Cut by Speedball. It’s easier to carve that linoleum (or so I hear, at least) and pretty forgiving for beginners.
