I've been absorbed in my journaling practice...
I taught a little Zoom workshop with a focus on
organizational forms of journaling:
Planner/calendar meets Sketchbook Diary
The prep work got me to develop my own practice far deeper
than ever before.
Some of my current active notebooks:
• Daily Journal (Master Journal)
• French & Polish Study
• Music & Dance
• Food & Fitness
• Weekly Creative Journaling Group
• Art Learning/Noting
• Journal About Making Journals
• Creative Projects Journal
My three most actively used notebook journals.
Perhaps journaling wouldn't be such an active part of my life
if I weren't sheltering in most of the time.
With the influence of many online journalers my layouts
are more conscious now. There is consistency with variety
from day to day.
The colors & color codes are not only fun,
but they help me to be able to easily refer back.
This started out to be a Books, Music & Films
notebook. Eeek! what chaos.
Soon I'll begin the work
of organizing this into a neat little notebook.
In the meantime I've been organizing my old art work.
I found some plastic sheet protectors with 2" X 2" slots
for old fashioned slides at a yard sale.
I've been filling the little pockets
with all these snippet cutouts
that I'd thrown willy nilly into a box.
What's cool is that now that I know where to find them,
I'm actually using them in some of my current creating!!
All this journal writing & organizing
would not be as much of a pleasure
if I didn't love to handwrite with fountain pens
on beautifully smooth paper...
And if I didn't love using my art materials,
especially the watercors & colored pencils.
So, my Sketchbook Wandering takes place more within
the confines of my home these days
than out of doors.
