1. I keep my basic journaling supplies along with a stack of the paper I use to journal each day (already cut and holes punched) in a spot I am in everyday. Some spreads only take 10 - 15 minutes (they are small!) so I can just grab things and work at the kitchen table.
2. I do not think about blogging about it or photographing it - that just adds pressure. If I get to that in the same day - great - if not, then I will just post a few days at the same time later in the week.
Lastly, for me, having my 2010 dd-reverb journal to page through and look back on now is amazing, and I want to be able to do that again in a year time with this one, so that is great motivation to keep at it.
Okay - now, to share my spread and what I wrote about:
December 1 - Did you try anything new in 2011?
Was there anything that you did in 2011 that was a new experience? What was it? What was it like? How did it make you feel?
If you did not try anything new - was there a reason? Something holding you back?
I wrote about how Danielle and I, after years of saying we would, started to get together since we live not that far from one another (an easy train ride), and how now, we have made it a ritual to make time for me to come visit her, or meet in the city.
I talked about how my heart is still, and will most likely always be, in New England, and spending time closer to it helps me handle not living there so much better. I also mentioned how I love the beach/ocean (side note: I am working on a fun seaside themed post), and how Danielle knows this and always makes sure to take me to the water, even if it is just for 20 minutes while we sit and listen to the waves crash as they roll in or walk with our feet sinking into the sand searching for treasures.
At the end, I used cut out a piece of a plastic scrapbook sleeve and inserted a note I wrote and a small piece of sea glass I found last I was there - it was not TOO thick, but still bulked my book up a bit - and it is only the first day - I think this journal will end up being a fatty!
Check my #reverb11 page tomorrow for the next prompt - and check back here soon after for my take on it!
