30 days of lists

I was surfing down my Blogger list of blogs and saw on Alexandra Rae's blog that she had a post about 30 days of lists. Hmmm, that sounded interesting so I clicked over.

I peeked at the list of lists {ha, ha isn't that funny} but didn't print it out because I want to be surprised by the daily prompts and compose my lists on the fly, totally off the cuff and heartfelt. It's going to be fun to see what I might learn about myself, which was really my motivation in joining the fun.

True to form, I scoured my stash and got to work on making a mini journal to keep my 30 Days of Lists contained so that I just have to grab it and begin writing. I have a feeling I might even try to make it a little artsy by adding journaling spots and even some paint or gesso. Of course I'll share when class is over, silly.

If you're up for learning more about 30 Days of Lists, you can sign up here. If you'd like a journal like mine, find it in my shop.

Happy Monday from a stay-at-home Mommy who's last little babe started her first day of full-day Kindergarten this morning. I'll update you on Facebook to let you know how it's going here in this big, quiet house today. I'll also be adding a photo to show you how I embellished my 30Days of Lists mini front cover, too!

  8. Hi Monika! I saw this 30 Days of Lists September edition a couple of months back and planned on signing up. I signed up last week. It looks like it will be hugely fun, since I love to make lists. (My blog is www.listgirl.com) I'll be using a SMASH book as my list journal for the process. So excited to check out your lists too!
