Easiest Scrap-book Journaling...REALLY !

This is what I have been doing as
I recover. I read on blogs it is called
"Scrapbook Journaling" or Un-Journaling"
or Simple Jornaling
It is NO RULES...not in pictures, WORDS,
when and IF YOU WRITE or WHAT you do.
I saw it on Brenda's Blog here
ALSO on Jewel's Blog here.
PLEASE check out their blogs
and scroll down...to see how *THEY*
DO it !!!

I am enjoying the fun part of cutting
out from magazines, using stickers
old books..ANYTHING goes...
what works for me may not work for you !

Here are some of my supplies, I can tell my
favorite will be the black book, bought at JoAnne's

Sample pages


love garden pictures

My thoughts..or quotes


I am going to put my season salt recipe on these
pages along with a few other things..maybe a
quote or two on cooking

Love these pictures

A Stampin Up Spiral Book I started with.

Love this page...my thoughts..
I date only the pages that have my own
thoughts on it..

This is easy...so easy...and kind of a therapeutic
thing for me...My sister Lisa and her girls are
doing it too. This isn't to show off your scrapbooking
skills..it is a place to do what YOU want.
I always wanted to journal BUT couldn't be consistent
here...you don't HAVE TO....WHAT FREEDOM...
for someone like me.
IT is fun to recycle things too...old books, cards,
magazines...REMEMBER no RULES.....
~~Deby
Sorry for the blurry pictures...as you can tell
they are done on my lap on my recliner...

I've seen these and I love them, but I've tried to make it work and all I end up with is a bunch of stuff cut out of magazines waiting to go into my journal!

Yours is beautiful, Deby! I'm sure it is relaxing. And it would be wonderful to have a place for quotes and stuff like that.

This is exactly what I do! I was inspired by Jewels.

So glad to see that you are able to have a bit of creativity and fun!

Michele said...

I did this for awhile too, I'll probably get back to it this winter.

I'm glad you're keeping busy and creating lots of beautiful things to enjoy. (o:

What a lovely idea ~ it appeals to me more than structured scrapbooking which I find overwhelming!

So glad that you're able to find ways to express your love of creativitiy from your recliner :o)

Praying for your continued recovery Deby.

This is very pretty Deby. I've seen these before. I think maybe I might try it this winter. Thank you for sharing your journal.

That was so interesting to look at. I can see why it would be therapeutic. It does help to be crafty like you are, though. We had to each do a scrapbook page for a baby shower last week and I had a hard time with. Ended up giving it to my daughter to do for me. I enjoy looking at what others have done though!

Elise said...

I've heard of others doing this. I like the idea of NO RULES! I bet it is therapuetic!

Your scrapbooks are attractive. Isn't creativity fun? I like it because you can get ideas from others, but in the end, they are extremely personal - every one unique!

Deby,

This is a wonderful idea! I started journaling but, alas, it went by the wayside...maybe it is now time to take it out, dust it off and begin again ;)

I pray that you are healing and that the Lord continues to be your Peace.

many blessings,
