I recently bought the book Journal Revolution and I’ve been eagerly waiting for a new month so I could start a calendar journal. Basically, you start with a blank calendar page and fill in a square every day in whatever way you want.
I’ve got several ideas for themes, but being a word person that’s what I’m starting with. For a while I’ve been collecting words from magazines, catalogues, and junk mail to use in collages and other craft projects. For each day in July, I will find a word that has something to do with my day and glue that into the square.
Child Two is joining me this month. She’s chosen a flower theme. She’s planning to fill each square with a flower image—cut and glued, stamped, or hand drawn. If she enjoys it and decides to keep going, I’m sure we’ll see a cat theme sooner or later.
I’ll post some pictures once we’re further along.
