Day Eleven: Get it down!

I am grateful for all the journals I have kept over the years. Some are all in writing, others are visual/art journals. I love them all. Looking through them brings me right back to that point in time of my life...the good, the bad and the ugly. Here are some of the reasons I keep a journal..

I love this one. Pulled out my collage materials and scrapbook tonight, so I'm one or two steps closer to where you are inspiring me to be.

Good perspective. I never kept a journal until the last {21} challenge. It feels so good to look at that one journal, though, and to see all the ideas that I put down on paper :)

Beautiful, I should really start wring in them more. What I was thinking of, since I use only the right side of the book, to print out what I wrote in my blog on the left!!! Your fabulous dah-ling!!! Love your journals, could stare at them for hours!!!!

I haven't been writing journals between elementary school and the first round of the 21 challenge, but this won't be the last :o)

Love your entry and it will remind me to keep up the writing. Thank you :o)

Love this page. Is so nice to read the reasons why you journal and keep your journals.
Yes It's so nice to be reminded of the good reasons to journal every day. Like Tove I haven't done it for several years, but this is really a good habbit. ;-)

It´s been some days since my last visit. Its great to see that you are keeping up with the challenge and your work is as fanatstic as always! I love your style!

Way off topic: Your name is Kari right? We have lots of relatives in Minnesota (like almost all norwegians LOL) One of them, Kari, from St.Paul is here in Oslo right now studying norwegian at the University. She speeks perfekt norwegian ;o) Do you have norwegian roots?

This really impacted me. I have been loving the art journal experience and have always found it hard though to keep a regular journal. This journal entry has made me really rethgink the value of it.

Thanks
