I Want To Travel

I have decided to just start doing art. Not perfect art, but play in my journal. I have been not doing anything because I don't like my junk journal, but can't seem to allow myself a new one. So I will just start playing

Ezekiel Heart

I am trying to get back to my art journal. It is difficult with the boys home, but a little at a time.

My Needlework Journal

A friend asked me if I used my Bullet Journal for my needlework. I have kept a journal of my needlework projects for years. This has a lot of photos, just to let you know!
This is the cover of the notebook:
 I made it with a napkin, paint and a composition notebook (my favorite journal book!)
These are my bookmarks:
 I had yarn that I used to mark spots, but could never remember what yarn went for what thing! I finally just marked the year with a big tag!
I tried to do 31 projects last year. There are people who start a new project every day of the year and finish nearly as many! I tried for several years to do 15 starts and failed miserably! So I started listing the projects I wanted to accomplish and posting them on my needlework blog
This is the list from 2017. (I covered the titles to pilot classes that I stitched):

 I think I worked on 27 projects last year and finished 19.
When I work on a project I make a page for it in the notebook(I have numbered the pages) and make notes about the project if I feel the need. If it is a large project, I also make progress notes.

When I finish a project, I make a note on my list and on the page I stitched it. If it is a Mill Hill bead kit, when it is totally finished, I cut the color image out and paste it into my journal.
I really need to find a way to put images of my other completed work into my notebook. I could print a photo from my computer, but I am too lazy.
I need to start a new page for 2019!
