Creative Journal Your Story 9~ Falling in Love with Cities and People I have Never Met

Hello and Welcome back to Creative Journal Your Story~ Episode 9 and this is using the prompt~ ‘Falling in Love with new Cities and People I have Never met” This was such a fun page to do. This is another “Future” page in my journal and a lifetime Dream i hope to accomplish! I truly believe if you put your dreams on paper and out there in the World they will manifest. It also give you goals to work towards. I found this quote online and I find it truly motivational: Diana Ross Quotes “You can’t just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You’ve got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.” “Instead of always looking at the past, I put myself ahead 20 years and try to look at what I need to do now in order to get there then.”

I’ve created a journal page of looking ahead and where I would like to be in the future! What is your dreams and passions? Add them to your journal!

Creative Journal Your Story 2~ Passionately Curious

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.

Creative Journal Your Story: 1~ Hello

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.
