View Full Version : Journaling Life as Art
02-17-2010, 07:22 AM
Ann Voskamp has a wonderful way to "journal" your everyday stuff--the lists of things to do, errands to run, cute things the kids said, prayer requests....I love this idea and have bought a sketch book, amassed old magazines, and now plan to spend this Friday (our Family Fun Friday) creating some pages!
Just thought I'd share this wonderful idea! You can click on links at the end of the article that take you to posts on her blog that specifically deal with the Visual Journal for more pictures and ideas.

I have one!! A little behind in it now, though. Well, a LOT behind! But I do love it!

wow, what a lovely idea! I would think it would help us be "in the moment" even more and appreciate every second of every day. thanks for that link, I'm going to do that

I used to do something similar with my lesson plans. Lots of stickers and pen decorations. Made it seem more special and important.

I LOVE Ann Voskamp! She has a blog of her own that is beautiful too. Thanks for posting this, Trisch.

Trisch, I love this idea too! I have a post on my blog if someone needs to 'see' it as I did to start this:laughing:
I have gotten away from it, but have felt the Lord calling me back to it. When I spend time counting the things I am grateful for my whole life changes! Boy, I need to get back to it.
Here is the link to my blog and then from there are a couple of others for inspiration.
Thanks for bringing this up !

You know I have a folder in "Mommy's Favorites" under blogs, and you now have a folder right along with Ann's! That way I can find those posts that really speak to me!
You have a lovely blog, dear!
