Prompt-a-Day Journal Pages - October 24-30

Hello, fellow journalers,

I'm thrilled to share next week's journal pages with you. They include this quote by Orison Sweet Marden:

"Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions
and make them great."

For me, this is a wonderful reminder to make the most of this moment, right now -- to connect to your current circumstances, whatever they may be, and make them great.

And what better place to plot greatness than in your journal? There, you can think on paper, try new ideas on for size, and when you're ready, use your unique combination of heart and determination to turn an ordinary thing into something extraordinary. I know you can do it!

Monday Links: What do you collect?

Are you a collector? Until today, I would have said that I am not. I've never seen myself as someone who collects items related to a theme. My youngest daughter, by comparison, is obsessed with owls. She has amassed quite a large collection of owl-related items including owl softies, a wide variety of clothing and accessories with owl graphics and motifs, a growing library of books about owls, and even several owl pellets. (Eww.)

Recently, however, I've found myself drawn to photos of other people's collections and I thought it might be fun to share a few links with you. To accompany the post, I set to work to see if I could create a collection of my own.

In my collection below, there are all sorts of things related to my creative adventures. There are paints and markers, yarns and threads, clips and pushpins, my little booklet of confidence, and some of my experiments with watercolour, paper embroidery, and crochet.

After some thought, I've decide that I am a bit of a collector. I collect colourful art supplies so that I'll have lots of opportunities to create colourful things -- all of which make me happy. Neat!

Here are five links to wonderfully imaginative collections to inspire you this week:

* Emily Blincoe's arrangements,
* Fiona Watson's unwritten book,
* Lisa Congdon's daily collections,
* Hanna Nyman's botanical paper compositions, and
* Ann Wood's drawers.

Tell me, what do you collect?

Prompt-a-Day Journal Pages: Week of September 26 - October 2

Hello, fellow journalers!

Next week's Prompt-a-Day journal pages are all ready to go. They're loaded with new prompts about places in your life that are full of light, people you admire, things that are changing and things that are not changing, and more. There's even a new lightning round!

Since this set wraps up a month of prompts, I'd love to know what you think. Did you journal along with me this month? Would you like to see more journal pages like these through October and beyond? Let me know in the comments. I appreciate your thoughts so much and I look forward to the opportunity to chat with you.
