Journal XXII - Done!

Another one in the hole!

This is the journal in which I finally caught up after a year-and-a-half being behind!

It was a pretty interesting volume, as my summer ones tend to be.

1. The cover

28. I'm a photographer, and I recently got to shoot my first-ever baby shoot! The photos came out so well and the parents (my good friend/former supervisor Megan and her fiancé Mike) were reallllly happy! To see the whole set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sarah-carnes/sets/72157634951269218/

30. I recently found a ton of old papers and bits and bobs and such. I have a folder going for 'random journaling things' - things that don't go with any one event or date and can just be pasted in whenever. So I finished the journal with some random paste-ins. This page features an old Titanic tally, a Titanic movie ticket from 1998 and a piece of an old balloon.

31. I found this in a catalog and I thought it was such a cool display of all fifty state quarters! I love the state quarters program!

32. On the last page I wrote out a cute love equation I have on a t-shirt.

33. The new journal!

Thanks! It's pretty!

Storage/thickness has never been a real issue for me! I recommend paste-ins! I don't hold back with them, and I paste a lot of photos in, and I've never really had a binding/storage problem! :-)

Here's what the storage of my first 20 or so volumes looks like:

Me too! I'm the same way - a hopeful artist but enjoyer of doodles! lol

Good idea to use briefcases. Suitcases could work, too, I suppose? I had not thought of that.

Congrats on getting caught up :)

The entry for volume 7 on your master list seems to be locked :(

You do such an awesome job at keeping a committed journal! I love your neat style. I feel so schizophrenic sometimes, writing sporadically, wavering between an altered journal, a sentence a day journal or who knows what else! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you! :-) I'm a little OCD about it!
