More fun with Journaling

The first topic goes 'round on message boards now and then... what is "art" and who decides? I think it's you and me... it's always a subjective thing, really... if you make it and consider it art--then it is. Even if you make it but don't think it's art, but someone else does.... then it's still art! Art is in the eye of the beholder. I don't think something has to be pretty to be art. Some stretch the limits, quite purposely, simply to provoke and I guess that's ok, too. I like art that says something and communicates.

The other entry is about food... things I find yummy. What do you find delicious? I'd love to hear. My tastes change and what sounds good one day, may not on another. I don't think fresh fruit made it on the list, but that's great, too. There's probably nothing I'd love to eat every day... as much as I like anything, I'd get tired of it rather quickly.... variety is the spice of life... I'm lucky to have so many eating options.

The new Journal Kit Journal pages....

Well I've done a few pages using the new Journal Kit... and a new Moleskine book I started to use with it. It's been really fun! I camped out on the sofa and didn't even run into the craft room to grab more stuff or get additional things that weren't in the kit (I'm so proud of myself!). I cut up a Prevention magazine I had picked up at the grocery some time ago... some nice headlines and adds that gave me great ideas for journal entries. There are sure to be more pages coming soon.

Journal Kit

For the latest Street Team challenge I've put together a journaling kit... from things at The Container Store (I work there part time). I was pleased to find out that my favorite journaling book Journal Revolution fits perfectly inside so I can take inspiration with me as well as tools! The second photo shows the second layer with my Moleskine journal.

Next I show the small boxes inside that hold markers and small stamp pads and colored pencils, a glue stick, x-acto knife and a double stick adhesive dispenser.

The next photo shows small cups to hold embellishments. They are magnetic on the bottom and I stuck small round metal discs that have adhesive on the back so they stay in place and don't rattle all over the box. The last photo shows a clear pouch that holds some individual pages for another journal, some scrap paper, tags and clippings from magazines to add into the journal. I've made a few pages already using my kit, I'll post those on Tuesday.
