TYS Journal Pages

So I got a little camera happy with pages of my journal... I apologize now. I am very happy with the way they turned out and I am so in love with this class!!! like.. really!! I even felt kinda poetic in a few of them :D

I halfway did today's page, it was actually very hard for me. When I saw the prompt I literally felt sick to my stomach. I knew I was going to let it all out in the journal but got really nervous about actually writing it all down. I really poured my heart on to paper, I'm not even sure I'm going to post it on here. Maybe I will talk myself into it by next Friday when I share the next batch... we will see!!

And because I haven't done a confession panda obsession post I thought I would leave you with some real cuties!

and my confession... today was the first day I have ever written down the words that I had built up inside of me, it felt good! I was always scared to write how I truly felt on paper, it makes it seem to real.

Hope everyone has a great weekend, I'll be at the salon tomorrow getting more black lowlights put in, then Menards to get some paint to redo my entire craft studio and maybe a cute bench for my garden.

What are you doing?

    I would love to have you stop by:

  15. Lovely pages - I love your dark backgrounds. The pleated fabric is also beautiful. I know what you mean about feeling scared to write down your feelings. I've never been a journaler, and I'm finding the class to be a little scary, but therapeutic as well!

  16. You are just full of talent young lady. I love looking at all of your crafty goodness. You are amazing Linds! I love you!

  17. Love the pages!! Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with all of us! You are such an incredible person! I am so lucky to know you! :)

  20. Your pages are wonderful! The black pages is pretty much the best idea ever, I'll have to find a way to incorporate that into one of my future pages!
    I just discovered your blog and its amazing!

  21. beautiful pages. i love your handwriting.

  22. The journal pages are so beautiful! I have been posting mine too, but I am holding the page from this day back. In fact, I finished the page, but not all of the truths. I think that it was more than I could handle all in one night. Weird right? Anyway, thanks for sharing yours :)
