The Lil Journal Project | Day 37

I spent today in my journal listing out teachers that I could remember. It was harder than I thought. I remembered my elementary teachers and in middle school and high school I remember certain ones….but then I draw a blank. I know if I dig through some papers and report cards I might be able to remember the rest….but at least it’s a start so I don’t start forgetting more:

As part of the Lil Journal Project: another technique to work on in your journal this week: doodling on photos!  A few of these techniques come from my friend Stephanie Corfee’s  book: Creative Doodling and Beyond. Like drawing interesting borders:

Try adding photos into your journal and embellishing the photos with borders….even if it’s just a few lines:

The Lil Journal Project | Day 25 (Link Up)

I recently drew out for Boo all of the occupations that have preceded her in our family tree. She thought it was awesome that she was the product of: firefighters, homemakers, actuaries, farmers, entrepreneurs, bankers, contractors, bridge engineers etc. In church the other day, my pastor asked the congregation how many people had been in the same job for at least 30 years…..only a handful of people raised their hand. It got me thinking about how my grandparents and great grandparents really only had one or two occupations their whole life….but my parents and I have had several.
