My turn! My turn! :D

I wanted to show an in-progress pic too!
I apologize for the blurriness and the size... I'm using my phone because I didn't want to wait to join in!

I always love washi tape! I love seeing it in journals and have a few rolls myself. But never remember to use it myself.

Thanks for sharing! I wasn't expecting so many people to post theirs as well :)

I love that people are! We see so many new journals and completed journals but hardly any in progress. Ah, I love it! Thank you for inspiring us! :D

Why does that journal have to last you awhile? Don't tell me you've run out of blank journals!? That is ridiculous! :)

My concern for you is pencil doesn't last. It smudges and fades, so all these wonderful words you are recording may disappear. If you can't do your sharpies, maybe just a regular pen?

It's a long story but you'll see it when I post more of this journal. Hopefully things will have resolved a little by then. I got some wonderful journals for Christmas/Birthday but they are either nearly filled (I had a lot of paste-ins...) or filled too much to be able to write in for much longer. I have a stack of blank homemade journals that I'll be putting up for adoption but those are inaccessable at the moment. Ugh, life...

Me and ball-point pens are not best friends. I did try to tough it out and use a pen for the first page but even that bled against the thin paper (the globs actually bled to the next page). I've had some thin paper in journals before but this is ridiculous...

I like the flowers. I really need to invest in some washi tape.

I love those flowers! I use them for so many things, sometimes all a page needs a bit of a blossom to make it complete :3
(By the way, love your Skelita icon!)

This is so cute! I love how everything you've included works so well together. The writing on washi tape looks really great as well. :)

The pencil writing looks really nice, but I've found in my experience that it can get really bad for smudging/fading over time.

The washi tape was a happy accident, the paper is so thin that the ball point pen bled so when I write on the other side, I could barely see what I was writing. And there were horrible globs. So I put the washi tape over it so that I wouldn't have a mess and inked over what I wrote underneath. One thing led to the next and well, there you have it! The only bad thing is that the ink took forever to dry.

Yeah, my hand keeps smudging it :( I try to keep it from happening but smudge happens, I guess...

My fav new pen is FriXion clicker which is erasable! It writes great and when I misspell something or whatever the case it is erases CLEAN! I'm head over heels!

Be well. Love the pic!

Oh those flowers you added are so beautiful. ♥ When do we get another video form the berry patch? I'm missing them greatly! And do not worry I have not forgotten to write you back. I will most likely get to it this weekend.

I didn't actually read your entry I was so busy admiring the flowers. I haven't written with a pencil for ages either, simply because it fades easily and I don't like the way it feels in my hand. Why does that journal have to last you a long time? Is it the last in your stash? Please inform!

You'll see that why when I do my next journal update, though hopefully some of it will have resolved by then. I have some of my homemade journals being shipped to me (they're being put up for adoption) so I'll likely use one of those before I put the rest up to find new homes, this one is driving me absolutely batty!

I started one before Christmas but things kept snowballing out of control and I had been sick. As my current situation gets resolved, I'm hoping to get back to things like making videos From the Berry Patch... I have a whole list of things I want to make videos on!
