Journals and a DIY

Heyy Everyone,
So I must confess, I have an obsession with journals. I love them. I love the idea of an empty journal and all the possibilities that it holds. I however always start writing in journals and then stop halfway through them or after a couple of weeks.

Each journal has a different use, and therefore they never get used up. Some are travel journals, some are regular journals (the diary kind), a few are blank, one is full of lists, and the one with cat on it is full of quotes, pictures and other random things.

Lately, I have become obsessed with making journals. The blue one is an old journal that I covered in felt. The polka dot one has post-it notes in side (originally posted here) the other one is made up of random scrap paper (originally posted here).

My new obsession with making journals lead me to make this:
The front
The back

I got the idea and instructions on how to make it here.

Well tomorrow is back to school. I'm really not ready for the break to end. I have no idea how I am going to wake up tomorrow. I really want to post at least once a week this year, hopefully I will be able to keep it up.
I hope everyone has a good day back,


  1. Wow, you and I have something in common... lol... I love to write and all, but, even if I'm not done with them, I'll find another that I juat HAVE to have. .. *laughs* I also have taken a recent liking to decoupage... so many of my journals are covered like that... Love your blog! It's cute. :)

  2. Ah I wish I am hardworking enough to keep a journal & write things in iT

  3. I have the same problem! I'm always picking up journals because they're cute and then I don't end up using them all or I'm stumped as to what to use it for. =/
