Introducing....Mish Mash Junk Journals

TGIF friends! As I get back into work mode after Summer vacation, I'm finding all kinds of things that I've made notes about....fun stuff to add to my Etsy shop. New ideas are jotted down all over the place.

Which brings me to my post today. I've always made little notebooks to have around. To make to do lists....
To write down this or that......
To inspire us to take time for ourselves....to put it in writing.....
Little notebooks to write down our big ideas.....
To sketch our grandest plans.....or simplest of card layouts......
Just a bunch of this and that.......
And last year during the holidays I made these little notebooks that were filled with ledger and graph papers....some new some old.....and over the years I've collected lots of these lovely papers.
So many lovely papers that it's time to share them. And that brings me to my newest creation called Junk Journals. Simple journals filled with old and new papers....ledger paper, graph paper, sheet music....and so much more. They'll be making their debut in my Etsy shop by the weekend so stay tuned. :) I'll be back to share more soon here on the blog.
I'll be sharing photos of the Junk Journals soon....but think of a fun place to organize your crafty colors and such.....

A place to create collages of inspiring colors and design elements.....

A place to pin found objects and lovely fabrics.....

A journal to let your artsy side shine through.....the messier the better.....

A pretty little place to add the daintiest of papers and prettiest of pictures......

Pages to fill with snippets of your most treasured finds......

An organized place to keep those ideas that pop into your head.....like when you're in the stationery aisle at Target and a great idea comes to you but you have no pen or paper.

It's simple + practical......just a collection of my junkin' finds that I hope you'll enjoy.

I'll be back to share more later. We've got my nephew's first high school football game to get ready for!!! The reds had their first volleyball games this week so it's been an eventful week. Go CATS!! I hope you all have a fantastic, fun filled weekend!

I am loving all of your ideas for journals! I was really impressed by the Gratitude Journal this week and the way you included your 4x6 pictures by simply punching holes in them! What I wouldn't give to spend a day scraping and stamping with you! Thank you so much for sharing with us!

I stopped by for a quick peak and three hours later have finished looking through your journaling board and its various links. The good thing is that I've come away with an idea for a Christmas gift for my daughter, but now I've got to get rocking. Lots to do today. Have a great weekend, Michelle.
