Ever since the first time a saw the classic Disney animated movie, I was in love with Alice in Wonderland. It’s a wonderful story about a little girl named Alice who chases a white rabbit down a hole. She enters a magical world where she discovers the strength and potential of her imagination.
Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is a beloved classic tale and there is lots to learn from its underlying messages.
I’ve had my olive green pocket-size Travelers Notebook for a while now, but I didn’t really know what I was going to use it for. I have one grid and one blanc insert. Today I am working on my blanc insert. I decided to make it a small notebook to store my postage stamps.
I actually love how my cover turned out, if I may say so myself..
To create an air mail theme, I used washi tape, some stickers and a couple of vintage postage stamps to decorate the cover of my blanc insert.
For as long as I can remember I love journals, pens, drawing and writing. I have a box full of old diaries, holiday scrapbooks and other notebooks from the past years. Still I journal almost every day.
And I have a journal in which I write for half an hour (almost) every day. I write about what happened, how I feel, what my wishes are, what my fears are.. This is a personal notebook in which I write everything that I can possibly think about.
This morning I was reflecting about why I enjoy journaling. Here are five reasons why I love to write.
Two days ago I walked into a bookshop and I stumbled upon a book between a few large stacks. The book has cheerful illustrations on the cover and I was drawn to it immediately.
The book is called ‘Creative Flow – A year in my mindful life’ and it is sort of a creative diary. It is written by Jocelyn de Kwant, a mindfulness journalist, and the illustrations are by Sanny van Loon. ‘Creative Flow’ is a workbook with 365 practical exercises that revolve around mindfulness. There are many drawing tasks, but also writing assignments and breathing exercises.
