Although it may have seemed like I've gone on hooky these past few weeks, I've been hard at work. The 2011 Mood Organizer is coming along. I'm crossing my fingers and praying for a October release date this year.
I've also been on the road alot this summer if couldn't tell by all the travel post over at susanlower.com.
People talk about having split personalities, well... that's me. writer, author, crafter, and mother extordinare. They say one is to select a niche' and stick with it. It's hard when my two favorite things are writing and crafting. Both of these, I share with my kids.
We're always creating some kind of book together. We make up stories, scrapbook photos from vacations, trips, and special occasions. And, I'm always journaling these memories - sometimes even the bad, so that why when we go back and read about them, the good ones to come after are so much sweeter.
This week I ran into a post by Katie at MAKING THIS HOME called 13 tips for journaling.
I really like her simplicity method of journaling. Just tell your story. You don't need fancy scrap booking supplies to put together a book about places you've gone, people you've met, and your hopes and dreams.
I encourage you to check out her blog post this week and start journaling your story, especially those about this summer,s adventures. Enjoy the summer heat, while it last!
