Dear Journal...

Looking for my Writer's Workshop? Scroll down two posts or click here(ahem, LAZY) haha ;)

Throughout my childhood and teen years I wrote in journals or diaries off and on. It was always something like:

Dear Diary,
I haven't written lately, so let me catch you up. Dale and I broke up because he is an idiot and I'm not sure why I ever liked him. He cried when I broke up with him and I caught myself giggling. I wonder what that says about me? No worries, I'm not lonely. I'm dating Mike now and he's just adorable. He plays football and is on the wrestling team. He calls me Layla for reasons I haven't yet comprehended. It's cute because he's cute. I'm going to the movies with Mike, Janna & Paul on Friday to see Scary Movie. I can't wait!
Love, Lacey

I know. DEEP. Haha. I wanted an outlet of some sort and some place to write funny or sweet things people say, lyrics that strike me, doodles... whatever. So I bought a little sketch book and have been 'journaling' for about a week.

So far, I'm lovin' it! I don't make myself write something every day... just as the urge comes to me. I highly recommend it! It's kind of a nice to just sit down with markers and focus on nothing but the color bleeding onto the page for a few minutes. Relaxing!
What do you do that's just FOR YOU?

10 love notes:

  1. What a great idea. I carry a Moleskin for similar purposes and it's fun to reread from time to time.

  2. you are the cutest person i know....

  3. that is a great idea! I'm gonna go get a cute purse sized one and keep it with me!
    I agree with katieSaysSo, you are adorable!

  4. Why are you soooo adorable since back then? lol

  5. Cute drawings! I cant draw worth crap! Thats one reason why I have a diecut machine! lol
    I obviously scrap for me... yes for my children but very much for me.

    BTW- theres a Kaitlyn cooking post on my blog! Kassel joined in this time too!

  6. Judging from your doodles, I'd say you're twitterpated. Watch Bambi if you don't know what "twitterpated" means. I love your doodles. Honestly, my blog is just for me. That's what I do. I love it.


    Of course, I don't keep them all in one place. They are actually all over my house on every piece of paper I own.

    I should scan them to show you.


  8. Very cute! I left you something at my blog!

  9. OMG....I love your journal! How cute is that? OH, and my diary was exactly the same as yours. I may dig it up sometime soon.


You've always been my favorite... don't tell the others!
