I never got one of those little diaries with the gold key when I was a girl. I wish I had as it might have been interesting to see what I wrote at the time. Maybe it would have been lots of "Dear Diary, Nothing happened today."
I wish I had kept a regular journal when we lived in the Netherlands. At least I do have photos and some written captions. I am not into scrapbooking though.
I liked my creative writing classes when I was in high school and the brief time I was in college. One of my poems got published in the Colorado Springs newspaper, the Gazette Telegraph. For awhile I thought I'd be a news reporter or a journalist.
Anyway, I've tried to keep a regular journal for about 5 years now. I write mostly, though sometimes collages or doodles creep onto my pages. I love fat journals and ones with crinkled paper.
Here is a spread I did today.

I was day dreaming of a trip to some tropical location when I created this collage/vignette. I used real starfish, shells and some sea glass.

This is a faux orchid plant I assembled today. Adding bamboo and raffia makes it look more realistic.
Now if I could just find more tall pots like that one I'd be thrilled.

Our backyard is popular with wild birds. We have finches, quail, doves and the occasional hawk and owl. These wild creatures used to inspire my art.
Then I saw a dove feather on the ground. I picked it up and knew immediately I had to create something with it. This is a page in my long neglected art journal.
