Hello! I recently watched a video on You Tube from my creative friend, Journal with Dolly, and she did a 50 Facts about Me. I really enjoyed learning about her and thought it would be fun to create a video as well. I literally sat down and just wrote out 50 random facts. I created a video creating a collage in my journal using some of the Valentine cards and ephemera I received it the mail. I enjoyed the carefree process, hope you guys enjoy it too!
Thanks for Watching! Rebecca
Welcome back to Video 2 in the Journal Your Story Series! The prompt is ” Passionately Curious” and I decided to journal about my Great Aunt. She was an amazing person, so full of adventure, love and wisdom. She passed at age 75, when I was 10 years old but I have such a vivid and fond memories of her. How I wish I could sit and talk with her again. I am passionately curious about her life as a young adult and the whens and hows of her life. She loved her parents so much, but I know there were times she lived away from them. I also used this prompt as a way to document my journey with her, what she meant to me and conversations and experiences I can remember. I have an album full of pictures and memories, so I decided to use this one to document.
So what are you passionately curious about? Is it family, other counties, music, art… so many possibilities! I hope you are inspired to create in your journal! Here is a video of my process.
Thanks for watching!
The “Journal Your Story” Video Series is a way to kick off the New Year, with telling your story. If you are a memory keeper, scrapbooker, journaler, photographer, or social media queen… we all tell our story. I sometimes hear from others, “I don’t have an interesting life and don’t know what to write or journal about” Well, here are just a few questions you could write about: What is your weather? What do you like to eat? What are your favorite clothes you like to wear? Are you reading anything? What are your dreams? This is your story… and adding all the fluff…washi, ribbon, ephemera, stickers.. is just a bonus!
Inside this past CWR kit there was a set of journaling cards (from the Vicki Boutin Paper Line) with “word prompts” In this video series I plan to use those words as prompts. In case you were unable to purchase the kit, here are the words so everyone can play along!!
I hope this series brings you inspiration for journaling your story.
Here we are half way through the month of October! How is that possible? I wait so long for this time of the year and now it’s zooming by!! So let’s capture each day with jounaling, scrapbooking and documenting. The October ” Baking up Joy” kit is now available! Check my Shop to purchase
Happy Creating!, Rebecca
