Inside My Journal...


I have been doodling a lot in my journal this summer so I thought I would share with you what's inside... 


I have seen some really beautiful journal pages in magazines and books lately.  I love them but my journal is pretty much doodles and colored markers... 


I love the idea of a journal filled with mixed media pages but that's just not for me right now.  Most of my doodling comes in very small increments of time; like ten minutes here or six or seven minutes there... 


 During the summer months when the girls are not in school and there's lots of activities going on I just don't have large blocks of time (even an hour is considered a large block of time!).  So I keep the creative juices flowing by constantly doodling and coloring...


This is very portable too - I can shove this in my purse with three or four markers and a fine point black Sharpie and I'm good to go!   


It's starting to rub off on the girls too, the last time we went to the park, Fiona grabbed her journal and two colored pencils.  What is your grab and go method of creativity?

NONE! I spent so many months getting the house together, then finally on the makret, been packing, now thinking about moving back to PA in three weeks. Whew!! I think you doodles and color choices are spectacular! These would be published! xo

The pages look great! My Daughters like to journal as well. I also like to bring my knitting bag and needle-felt little creatures on the go...

So good catching up with "giftsfornonnie". It was nice taking July off and I am strictly making August a simple photo blogging month. Love your journal. I started a gratitude journal in February...now and then I incorporate some little doodles and photos in there too. I really enjoyed your post about Ann Frank too. Shame of me...I love books and can boast reading many classics but never this one...will add to my "to read list" on goodreads. I know what you mean about having just little snippets of time over the summer. My sewing room/studio turns into a storage room in the summer months. Keep creating and doodling I know that it is always worth it.
Cheers,
Leah

Cassie, what a breathtakingly beautiful, colorful journal! I am so impressed, and inspired to try more doodling myself!

Hope you are well, friend!
