30 Days of Lists | Let Me Introduce Mysel

#junk journal #list #lists #list journal #mini book #journal prompts #journaling #mixed media journal

As a rule, I don't include photos in my list journals. But today is different. I recently participated in Ali Edwards' Pieces of Us selfie challenge and came away with some great stories and a few good photos.

This is one of them.

And since 80% of the time, I don't like photos of myself because I usually have my eyes closed or look uber awkward, it was a total surprise to come away with this gem. When I look at it, I see peace and happiness and contentment. And I hope the rest of the world sees that in me, too.

INSIDE MY JOURNAL
Day 1 | Let Me Introduce Myself
I knew that I was going to include a photo of myself here but didn't want to cover up all of the lovely florals and gold foil accents which made me decide to trim down my photo.

I used a book page scrap which had been stamped on, because reading is such a big part of who I am, and then scattered some pink sequins around the photo and decided to add a touch of gold glitter washi tape to reinforce the glittery gold theme.

It was quite by accident that my sweater had a pink word phrase on it, but a happy accident I must say.

I also used a book page scrap as a journal prompt holder that I tucked under my photo on the left side. The "list nerd" die cut is part of the free printable I designed for the March challenge and once you register you can access the download on the private 30 Lists blog.

MY HIDDEN JOURNALING
A technique I use now and again is to hide my journaling. Sometimes it's because it's kind of heartfelt and personal and private. But not today. Today, I used a glassine bag and pink shipping tag to journal on only because my page was already full.

I also used the "one" tag from this printable number tag set.

I repeated the book paper scrap and the leftover scrap of neon pink that I used on the floral page with my photo. See, I told you I was a scrap hoarder.

The Light Is Shining Within You

#hope #quote #inspiration #shiining light #good words #movitivational #inspirational #quotes #The Sunday Quote #motiviation

I’ve revamped my weekly quote series to focus on a different theme each month and the  theme for March is LISTEN

It is so suprising to me that the qualities that I see in others are what I hope to be, to aspire to...and then someone shares with me some encouraging words of how I have helped them or inspired them by my actions.

Wow. Sometimes we just have to listen.

So, I'm going to leave that with you. I'm going to urge you, and me, to remember that we, too, are a shining light for somoene even if we don't know it. 

Visit with me every Sunday for more inspiration and motivation for The Sunday Quote.
