Solutions for Your Resolutions: Starting A Journal

If one of your resolutions this year is to start a journal, we have some upcycled inspiration for you! Here's a few handmade journals I found on Etsy~

Upcycled Ephemera Journal by Once Upon a Firefly

Upcycled Mini Journal by Eco Imbiber

Mary Poppins Rebound Journal by Prairie Peasant

Upcycled Handbound Journal by Callies Craft Cottage

Mixed Media Journal by Gone Rustic

Beer Box Journal by RePaper

Upcycled Styx Journal by Coleraine Creations

Wine Box Cover Journal by ReBound Books

Upcycled Indigo Fabric Journal by Feed Your Soul Threads

At the end of the year we seem to always look back and think about all the things we wish we'd written down, and then we make that resolution:

I'm going to start a journal!

But often we let go of the resolve and before you know it another year has passed. Take the first step by finding a journal you relate to~ something that you feel drawn to. Then find a good pen and write any word you want to keep the first page from being blank. After that, don't wait for a "perfect" time to sit and write. Jot a sentence, a word or thought. A quick quote or anecdote you might have heard.

These written words will someday spark your memories of these little moments. They may also provide some insight into your life for your loved ones in the future.

Make 2013 your best year yet!

  1. What a great resolution! Blank books can be used for so much more than daily journaling too. Other ideas include: keeping lists, a book journal (books read), letters to a loved one, notebook for craft classes, and so much more!

  2. Yes! Finally someone writes about bingo games.
