Twyla on Tuesday - Making Journals

Hello my dear friends!
Thought I would share with you what I've been up
to lately!  Making journals out of composition books!
I really enjoy traveling around our beautiful state and
I like to collect pictures and history of the areas I visit.

The two above are ones I am currently working on.
Once I get the paper and pictures glued down, I will journal
and embellish the pages with some of my stamps!
They aren't beautiful the way Lindsey makes scrapbooks.
Mine are more an effort to get my thoughts and memories
down in one place so I don't forget.

I find the practice so engulfing and when I am working
on one, I am totally absorbed. 

I love collecting the paper and embellishments.
My husband has always told me you have to have the right tools
to get the job done right.  I like to think that's his permission
for me to buy the craft supplies as I need:)

Thanks for stopping by today and sharing a bit of my
crazy crafting.
Enjoy your day!
Love, Twyla

This is really a great idea. I think I need to make up some journals. It would be so nice to have them to refer to later. Thanks for sharing :)

What a great idea Twyla! Ha, ha, yes me need many tools to do a good job! Can't wait to see more of your journals, Marilyn.

Your journals are beautiful! I tried to make a couple once, but I obviously didn't have the 'right tools'! May I ask what glue you use? My pages always look like they've gotten wet (wrinkly) or doesn't stick well overall! :~{
Curious minds want to know. :~D

What a great idea! A good way to journal and be creative at the same time.

Oh how fun! Enjoy your day with the journals, HUGS!

I have a pesky composition book that keeps floating around my home office, perhaps if I embellish it I would actually find a use for it. Thanks for the nudge.

What a great idea. I have never done any scrapbooking even though I have all of the supplies to do so. This project seems more doable for me. Thank you for sharing.
