I really love journals and I’m pretty sure I’m obsessed with them!
Writing will forever be an outlet for me. I’m able to express myself and organize my thoughts. All my ideas, goals, projects, and sketches are in journals. That’s exactly how I brought www.heranyx.com to life. Well, last week I was inspired to design my own journal after I saw one with a ridiculous price tag ($22). Nothing was special about it. I just loved the map design it had on the cover. Why pay that price when I can cover any journal with the design of my choice right? So, I bought a few composition notebooks from the Dollar store and scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby. Thanks to Hobby Lobby and their 50% promotion I was able to get two sheets for the price of one (30 cents each)
The Materials: Scrapbook paper, notebook, super glue, and scissors. I covered each notebook, added a little bit of super glue, and cut off any excess paper. Yup, it’s really that simple!
Now, I’m going “journal crazy.” It’s time to create more in different sizes, using different style journals, and creating closures for some. I’m thinking about creating one from scratch….I’ll keep you posted!
Speaking of journals and www.heranyx.com today marks ONE YEAR for my blog!!! It started in my head, then exploded on paper, and then brought to life. “Write the vision and make it plain”
