Do you journal?  As far as writing every day about my day I haven’t done that in a long time.  I use to.  In fact I find great humor reading my Jr. High school journal.  I got out of the habit of this kind of journaling when I went through my health struggles.  I just hated writing negative stuff so I just stopped.

But just because I don’t do traditional journaling doesn’t mean I don’t like to have a journal around.  In fact, I have several journals.  I keep a journal full of great quotes I hear.  A journal for my soap recipes and one for quilt ideas.  I have a journal I write thoughts and impressions in as I read scriptures or other great books.  I like my journals to be fun and cute so I like to make covers for them.  This little tree covered journal is my latest. Would you like to make a fun journal cover?  I have a tutorial here.  You can see more of my journal covers here, here and here.  Just in case you are looking for some ideas to get you started.

    I do journal. I keep a small daily diary of sorts, plus I keep a desk calendar in my sewing room and record what I am working on that day and then of course I have my blog which is really just a journal of my quilting. Thanks a million for the tutorial!

    I have several journals. I have a holiday journal, a stitching journal and a Gratitude journal. I do not write in them every day but I enjoy them just the same.

    to me my blog is my journal – when I was a kid I had "diary's" when I got older I had "journals" and then blogging came and I love it!

    I am not into journals, but I love making covers for them.

    I guess you could say my blog is my journal, of quilty things. My soon-to-be 8 year old granddaughter, when asked what she wanted for her birthday, chose a faux-fur covered diary/journal because she had already filled all the pages in her first one! I'd love to be able to see that someday.
