Do I Dare Disturb the Universe?

I have been breaking in my princess journal!

This is my "Smile List".

There has been a Smile List in every journal I've kept since I was about 11 or 12.  It's a fun way to break in a new book. :)

Another recurring page I have in most journals is the "me" page.

I do the "me" page a bit different every time. This one is actually a variation of an "all about me" web I once had my students do.

I also decided to write a little blurb for the back cover.

I have a thing for alliterations.. can you tell? >.>


On another note- I was the featured artist on Jenniebelie's Tell on Tuesday this week. :) Check it out.

And I know I have some new followers who found me thru her blog, so hi new followers!

Inchies, Twinchies, Betwinchies- Oh my!

For the last several weeks I have been steadily filling pages up with little inchies & such.

Some of them are just me using up some cute stickers or doodling...

inchies, betwinchies & some ATCs

However,  I really like to use them for tiny bits of journaling.
Sometimes the idea of filling up a page with how I feel is a little intimidating (especially if it's a "bad" feeling).... or even silly. Like: "Do I really want to do a whole page about THAT?" 

But filling up a little 1-2 inch square? Easy-peasy. ;)

I've got the month of May...

May already??? sheesh

 April all filled out-

and May ready to go!

I ended up re-doing the title several times until I was happy.

Next month will be in my new journal and I can do BIG calendar spreads again!! :D Yay!

Most of the little images you guys see on my finished calendars are Korean "diary deco" stickers. They are adorable and I wish I could claim credit for them- but they are stickers.

My favourite has been "My little friend" by Pony Brown.

Altho, recently I found "Bonnie Series" by Wannathis.

I like her because I think she looks like me! She's got crazy long wavy brown hair same as I do.

I find my stickers on Ebay or Etsy. Just search for "diary deco" and you will find a bunch. 

They are made for Filofax type planners I believe, so they work well for calendars. In fact, they are partly why I started making calendars in the first place... >.> And then I found The Kathryn Wheel and my calendars got fancy!
