Journal: Write it on a Photo

Last fall I started journaling with Gadanke and Katie's weekly ideas to help you overcome writer's block and document your life in unique and meaningful ways.

I loved the ideas and how it brought a new aspect to my jounraling. I am a voracious journaler. I have been since middle school. It's my way to document what's happening, processing life and stay sane. Yet I wanted to be able to incorporate photos and mementos. To make it more than just words on a page. I've struggled to merge the Project Life idea with what I write in my journal.

I really love Gadanke's journals. I have the She journal.

It's filled with prompts, fun paper and places to record what is going on.

So I jumped at the chance to become an affiliate for Gadanke, because I get the vision Katie has for helping people capture their story. Our stories matter and everyone has one to tell.

On Wednesdays I am going to be showing you my entries through Gadanke's journaling workshops using the Joyful Things journal.

In the second workshop (the first is an introduction), Katie uses a photograph not just as a reminder, but as the page as well!

I found a photo from our recent trip to DC.

Before I wrote on the photo, I made a list of what I remembered from the trip.

Then I took my sharpie, wrote on the photo - and dated the entry. I slipped it onto my Joyful Things journal and my first entry is done.

Join me next Wednesday, when we look at Documenting the Season. If you want to journal along with me, go to Gadanke and pick up a journal.

*In the spirit of full disclosure, these are affiliate links in the post, which means that I may get a commissions if you decide to purchase anything from Gadanke. I only recommend products & systems that I use and love myself, so I know you’ll be in good hands.*
