New Month, New Journal

It’s been a while, I know, but I have actually been keeping up with my new journaling habit. I’ve even gone and got myself a lovely little handbag-sized book I can carry around with me. I’m still using my original July spiral pad but I keep starting and not finishing pages in it. I’ll get back to that one someday soon, but for now here’s a couple of wee pics of my new one and it’s first page. I can’t wait to fill the whole thing!
I got the book for 30p in a thrift shop. I really must decorate the cover next:

It’s Enid Blyton’s ‘The Mystery of the Disappearing Cat’. I never liked Blyton, so I don’t mind messing it up!

And here’s my first page, as messy as usual. Hopefully I’ll start improving soon:

p.s I just want to say thank you for all your much-too-kind comments on my previous pages. I’m always really paranoid posting them ’cause I think they look like something from playschool.  But it was blogging that got me started on this so I sort of feel an obligation to share. Anyway, thanks again!

What a charming little book! I really enjoy the messy style of your pages; it looks very natural and your color choices always pull everything together nicely. The little fairy girl and that quote are perfect together.

I've been thinking about starting a smaller book than the 500 page brick I've been working in for the past two years, but something is compelling me to finish this one first. Soon enough!

I don't know if I've stumbled here on this winsome place before, perhaps so as I recognize some of your followers. Will surely return.
