Journaling Your Way

In the last post, I looked at the basics of journaling your way and the process that can give such pleasure. Looking through others ‘Bullet Journals’ I have found lots of inspiration for spreads that resonate with me. read more

Creating your own Journal

My last post looked at bullet journaling as a new life tool. I have talked about the joy of writing things down on paper in previous posts and the enjoyment I get from creative journaling. Bullet journaling can be a hybrid allowing me to combine both of my passions in one notebook. read more
