“Me Journal”

simple embellished journal for your new year

It’s a new year and I am vowing to myself to give “me” some extra time this year. As I get older, I am finding that I need time to sort my busy life out.

My kids are older which only makes for a more complicated life. Here are just a few tips to help you create your own “Me Journal”.

Book. You can buy one that is ready to be decorated. Some of them are already put together and some of them you need to assemble.
Paper cutter
Favorite sayings

Tips for newbies to crafting:
You can pick up a simple spiral bound book at the dollar store. All you have to do is add ribbon and glue paper.
A paper cutter is not necessary but it sure does come in handy!
If you don’t have any paper or embellishments the easiest way to put a book together is buy a book or package of themed papers. They even have sayings and tags inside for you to cut and glue.
You don’t have to complete your book in one day. The idea is to keep it with you and add to it as the year progresses. I have put in napkins that have been scribbled on to fortune cookie sayings that mean something to me. If it fits in your book add it!
