30 Days of Lists

I've always had a passion for paper and Lists. I've keep many journals and even created a few. I recently came across 30 Days of Lists which is right my alley. So I signed up right away. I decided to create my own journal. I've been creating jotters for my etsy shop, I decided to make mine a little bigger.I can't wait to get started.
 I used a book cover for the front cover, then added stickers for the title. I put it all together with ring clips to add additional pages if I want later.
 I used scrapbook paper and found papers, this one is a score card with a sticker at the top
 next is an accounting sheet and a sold tag
 more accounting pages with scraps of pages attached
 workbook sheet and message paper
 scrapbook paper and story book page with stickers added
 scrapbook page and envelope
scrapbook paper and a paint chip with sticker attached

I really enjoyed creating this book and since have made a few, I now have them listed in my etsy shop...I enjoy finding vintage papers and goodies to add to these notebooks, I look forward to making more

Book Review - Soul Mapping

I picked up a few books while junkin this past week..I had mostly cookbooks, when going back through the books I noticed this one, 'Soul Mapping'
 not sure what attracted me to it, but I opened it up and started reading it. At once I become engrossed in the reading and went thru the entire first chapter. It prompts questions of things you've done and want to do, kind of a way to get to know who you are and where you need to be heading. 
I had just picked up a few of my favorite journals by 'Markings' I got one in hot pink, aqua and lime green. So I grabbed the lime green one, and started journaling based on the prompts given.
It's been a great soul searching tool, it brings to light things about yourself you may not have realized or not have focused on. I hoping it will help me find my purpose and a direction
