30 Days of Lists

Today is the first day of “30 Days of lists” with Kam and Amy!  Through March, there will be one list prompt each day, and by the end you will have 30 lists! I think it will be  a fun way to use a journal or mini book, and a great way to kick start new thoughts and memories for journaling. You can sign up here, it’s only $8 bucks, and join a new group of people with similar interests, find new ideas and tutorials on the private blog, and share your work!

The book I’m going to use for my lists is one I made with mixed papers including used envelopes, painted pages, lined, brown bag, scrapbook, and more. I made this little book to try a new (to me) binding technique, stab binding. I love how each page is different than the last and I think it will make a good list book!

I already had a few lists in this book before I joined the “30 days of lists” group, but the book has way more than 30 pages, so I’m not worried about running out of room. If the prompts are similar/the same of lists I already have I will just try to come up with new items or have doubles, its not a big deal! With some of the pages, like the envelopes, it can be hard to read words because of printing or texture, so I plan on making journal cards to tape or glue onto a page, so its easier to read. The page I chose for todays prompt was the back of a security envelope and would have been hard to read, so I wrote on a piece of leftover acrylic paper and tore it to size, then I stamped on it and taped it onto the envelope page.

“Challenges to Accept”

Looking forward to each new prompt! Also I want to try some different styles, maybe writing one list in water color or doodled block letters…. Should be a lot of fun! If you are doing the “30 days of lists” leave a comment or link to your blog, I’d love to see your lists!

Also, Strathmore Workshop #2 “Watercolor Sketches” starts today! Free to sign up!

Thanks for stopping by!

About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!

  1. Do you know, I just heard something last night on Jerry Doyle, he was reading a list of 7 things happy people do consistently. One of the first things on the list, was Make Lists!! I’m not kidding! Happy people tend to make lists and cross things off as they accomplish the items, it gives sense of accomplishment and all of that!
