Keepsake Journal January Round-Up

I’m brushing the dust off January, and moving on to…February.

I realized that the only way I was going to catch up on this project is if I worked on, and finished, one month per week. I have to give my self goals with deadlines if I want to get anything done. It doesn’t stifle my creativity, it gets me off my procrastinating butt!

And look what I have to show for it…

…finished pages filled with cuteness!

That stamped circle on the left is part of what I salvaged from one of his art projects. He has kind of a “create, seek and destroy” artist method. But what a wonderful way to use kid’s art in your journals!

I wasn’t with him on this trip to the Children’s Museum, I printed this from a text photo. I usually keep my text photos for my *Becky Higgins Project Life app, but I’m not opposed to having multiple pics of this little fella.

Some fun stuff from a trip to Chuck E. Cheese. I had to do some pretty strategic cropping to get this to fit, but it’s finally home. It’s super fun to collect ephemera from my travels, but keeping it all organized can get a bit tiresome. Big win here though!

He wasn’t quite sure what to think of Chuck E. at first, then he wanted to get up on stage with him!

I loved having a library pocket to put journaling tags into from December, so I decided keep that going at the end of each month.

I’m really getting into using up my scrapbook ephemera in here. I’ve been holding onto some of this for years waiting for a home.

This photo is from a visit with our son, I’m not quite sure why I only took a photo of his pooch Murphy, but he’s awfully cute! Lil’ sweetie!

Well, there’s January for you. I’ve done a few more organizing touches to my keepsake journal tote to help move things along faster. I have lots on my plate, as I’m sure you do, so the more organizing we do the better, right!

I’ll be starting on February next week, and I’ll share that as soon I can.

Until then,

Thanks for popping in,

~Patty
