Art Journal Every Day Check In...

Hi everyone! This week was a little different for me in terms of art journaling. I decided to work in the tiny journal I made in Virginia's "Proof of Life" class. I decided to make it into a journal to record the little bright spots in each day. Now especially, I know it's important to acknowledge those. So, this week I made a daily page to record a good thing that happened. And I am calling it my "Good Things Daily" journal...


I dedicated the book to my mom, cuz I know she would want me to still see the bright things in life...

The quote is cut from a greeting card mom sent me at the beginning of January...

A wrapper from a Dove chocolate that I had at my crop with my girlfriends...

I shrunk down the sympathy card that Christina, Anne and Lynn gave me. I thought it was so beautiful I had to include it in my book...

This is a print that Christy Tomlinson gave out on her blog. She created it as a valentine for her readers...

More ephemera from my crop...






Hee hee, this moment was so cute...

and that's it for this week. It was so uplifting looking for one good thing to record each day! And I really enjoyed working in such a tiny format (3.5" x 5.5").

Thanks for visiting and for your kind comments. They really mean a lot to me!

That's an awesome journal and a great idea Michelle! My mom started writing 'one good thing every day' in a notebook when she was depressed (a few years ago) and it somehow lightened her every day a little bit more... I love the pages and I love you!
