Currently - The January Edition

#currently #journal card #printable #instant download #right now #document #storyteller

Taking a few moments a few times a month to document my "currently" status will be one of my 2020 creative projects for the year. I'm using my DIY ring journal which you can recreate yourself if you want to add another creative project to your lineup.


DIY RING JOURNAL TUTORIAL

1. Grab some paper scraps, I have a kit ready to use here
2. Download your "currently" card set 
3. Grab your favorite size ring here, you can find the black 1.25" ring I used here

I printed out 4 or 5 sets of cards, trimmed them and embellished the bottom edge of each card with a line of skinny washi tape I picked up late last year. I'm also using my date stamp and "trying" to coordinate my ink with the color of washi tape I'm using. 
Read more blog posts showing how I'm using these CURRENTLY journal cards for more inspiration and tips.

Hopefully I can journal once a week and as 2020 closes, I’ll have a nice little recap of what I did and what I was thinking for the whole year. I'd love to see how you're using your journal cards!

A PEEK AT MY JOURNAL PAGES

Day 7
Save A Tag
My tag is from a sweater I bought last month and I tore off the price from the bottom and used the back side as a date holder on the left side of my page.

I love how this month’s prompts are bringing up stories I can tell.

Day 8 
Vintage Vibes
I'm using this mixed paper journal and added the pink hang tag {from this set}, a mini white tag + a tree image from one of the printable ephemera set which I printed on vellum.

Day 10
Nature Lover 
I love a new year and new projects! I printed this ephemera set onto vellum instead of card stock, added it to the left side of my journal spread and then documented a little story from city girl to country girl for me.

Day 12
Sweet Treats
We lost count of how many rounds of homemade Banana Pudding Ice Cream we made last summer, we were hooked! So good, so easy and gone in a flash because it's that good.

Day 13
You know I’m a huge fan of layers and texture, but did you know I also layer it up when I’m dressing? Oh yeah, cami, shirt, sweater and maybe even a scarf.

I’m a cold natured person, usually, but this Menopause thing has me all about of wack. 

Day 14
Cozy Drink
Coffee is my fave, but I do love a hot peach green tea, too!

Day 15
A List
Today I used a tag, a teeny tiny scrap from a paper doily, several sticky notes and an ampersand stamp to mimic my patterned paper page.

All About Me From A To Z

#all about me #my story #right now #storyteller # my right now #currently #from a to z #mini book #journal #notebook

It was meant for me to have worked on this journal sharing little tidbits all about me and who I am all documented during my 55th year. And now with my 56th birthday just around the corner, I felt it was time that I shared my pages with you.

I began by adding bits of wish tape in shades of aqua and mint along the sides of my journal pages in a somewhat random manner.

This is the cover I chose, but you have a choice of 4 different styles here

#all about me #my story #right now #storyteller # my right now #currently #from a to z #mini book #journal #notebook

Here are a few stories I've documented so far and I'll share more of them with you next week.

Thinking about documenting who you are so that future generations know your story? Trust me, this will be a project that will get you to thinking, in a very good way.
