Nostalgic Musings Online Journal Class

I’ve been a long-time admirer of Hope’s journals so when she launched her online journal classes, I just had to sign up. Here are

my first efforts.



One of the things I love about Hope’s journals is her hand-

lettering. I have a lot of practice to do before I will be happy

with mine.


One of our cat’s, Inky, is getting older and crankier

than ever so I thought I would make him feel good by

honouring him with a spread in my journal.


It’s so interesting how the pages developed a life of their own in the process.

The class guidelines helped me to focus

on what to include but the pages took on a life of their own.

For instance, Hope suggested we use doilies on the page

somewhere, but Inky didn’t want anything to do with doilies

so I had to find the little fish bones instead and he is happy

about that.
