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.

I love your journaling. Creative Carmelina does the same and is so very inspiring. Last year I took a small notebook with me on our trip home to the States, colored pencils and all, said I would draw, write down quotations or things that inspired me. I used to draw and doodle so well, but it just doesn't come so easy anymore. Maybe one day I'll try again. Your's is really fantastic. Hope you are well. Best wishes, tammy
