The Sky’s the limit

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Have you ever felt that your journal is boring? I don’t mean to suggest that you are boring, I mean the content seems dry and repetitive. I got to thinking about this as I re-read some older pages in the creative journal I am writing in this month. As usual, when I bought a new “toy” I spent an inordinate amount of time researching how others used it. Then I experimented. I had started writing about the experience and found that my entries all read the same: “_____ is fantastic! Works with so many other things. Can’t wait to make a card using _____”

A lot of you have commented either publically on this blog or privately that you feel my posts have been interesting, valuable and motivational. Believe me, I try every day to keep your trust in me, but lately I wondered if my personal creative journal was going flat was my writing as well? Yikes! Having ideas in one of the most important parts of my craft. How do I keep the ideas flowing and do I really believe that there’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored?

I did not want to wait for the magic flash of light. I needed to have a plan. Now the plan  I follow  is to gather information, write down notes, shape ideas, share them with others and write. Sounds simple doesn’t it but I was just repeating these steps. I needed to create a new box of ideas. So I went to the bookstore and found a couple of magazines I’d never read before. I found some articles that were interesting. I took a break from writing . I asked myself: “if I had all the time in the world, what would I create?”

That age-old question opened the floodgates for me and so began content journaling for 2016 and 2017.

‘Til next time,

~Sallie
