I come with pictures of my latest journal and some of the carry case that holds the Journal supplies that I like to have with me.

The cover. I am once again using a pink Moleskine!

I wanted to do a comparison shot... New one on top, old one on the bottom. I still can't believe how thick it got! It got so thick that I couldn't do much in it anymore... Has that happened to anyone else? What do you do about it?

The inside cover. I love that sticker, it looks so much like me!

What better way to start a journal than by gushing about how awesome it is?

I drew my own calendar for the month! Now that it's almost over...

On the left, I wanted to put Leonie Dawson-inspired artwork in my journal since her website brings me such happiness just looking at it. On the right, a What I Wore Today page. I may have gone a little bonkers with the flowers...

The girl (well, it's supposed to be me) was drawn from a picture I saw and fell and love with on the site I mentioned. It was perfect for the text. What isn't shown much here is that I fell in love with candles. They make me feel so relaxed!

More rainbows and pink Moleskine love!

A currently unused scrapbook page waiting to hold goodies!

Apparently the scrapbook company wants everyone to know how much that piece of paper cost... On the right I gush about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Yup, total Monster High fan...

I almost got my hands on the Minnie Mouse Moleskine at a garage sale, but someone swiped it up before I had a chance to pick it up :( So I settled for Minnie Mouse stickers! Because I am totally a sticker addict...

Obligatory back-pocket goodies.

This is my pencil case that I bought so that I could carry my journaling supplies in them.

I keep my eraser, my "loaner" pen (the one that solely exists so that I have a pen I don't mind sharing when people say "Can I borrow a pen?"), Sharpie pen and pencil in the front zipper. I didn't buy it because of the design, I was just looking for a good pencil case and it was a happy accident that it turned out to be that one. Plus skateboard love! (I'm learning how to use one)

 photo PinkII_16_zps49dc0392.jpg

The inside... Scissors (usually kept in the mesh pocket in the back), glue and my wallet of things to glue or tie in.

Tags, stickers, string, fun shapes

Happy together!

I hope you enjoy!

I love your handwriting and how you fill up the page with your illustrations. :) Thanks for sharing!

Even though I've seen most of these pictures already, I still get excited when you post! I love your drawings and handwriting so much! I already have the one you drew of me and the girls ready for the pumpkin patch entry! You're awesome! Was great talking with you tonight and I'm looking forward to our journaling dates! :D I'll show you as soon as my new one comes in the mail!!

Your drawings are so beautiful. Seriously, I wish I could draw. Your drawing style is awesome, too. Please advise someone who wants to learn how to draw like you. :) What kind of markers do you use to color with? They color so nicely and don't bleed through the pages too much. Are they Copic? And your printing is so precise and easy to read. I can't read half the shit I write, it's redic.

Goodbye to the lady who steals my journal and tablecloth from time to time-

Lady is still here, just under a different name ;3 So watch your journal and tablecloth ;3

I use Stabilo fineliners for coloring and Sharpie no-bleed for the lines. I draw it in pencil and then ink over the pencil lines. I do give beginning drawing lessons (chibis, animals, various "simple" objects, etc) but my advice for drawing in my particular style is "be free". If you like big eyes, draw big eyes. If you like longer necks or no noses, then do that. It's about being whimsical and fun and it will never be perfect. I hate the way I draw arms and hands and my bodies tend to be out proportion but that's just the way I do it. I also use a lot of bright, happy colors so that in combination with the unrealistic-style of artwork makes it all come together in the end.

Nice photos.

Berry you are the absolute cutest and your journals are all brilliant! I love this one, as usual <3

Can I ask how you hold your pen? I have been told by people that my handwriting is so hard to read, and I think it's because I scrunch my hand up too much :( I would love to write a bit more neatly, and your handwriting is so gorgeous <3

It's really lovely to read some hopeful entries. I hope the world continues to treat you well darling <3

I'm working on a just-for-fun post about handwriting, so there'll be a picture of how I hold my pen!

This journal seems to have less paste-ins and more artwork, which is amusing to me considering my last one had more paste-ins and less artwork! So funny.

I didn't get the email that you'd posted, like I usually do!

You know I love your illustrations always. I think my favorite is the drawing of the journal itself - so cute!

*makes a loud and obnoxious deal out of scooting her chair closer to you*

OMG this post is goooorgeous! I can't stop looking at it O_O

I also love the feathers (too bad they fell off aaww), love love love. The contrast of colors just fills my eyes with bliss
