In the process of trying to make some journals to use up some stuff I have and just experimenting. I have found some of those things. I found some stencils that I hadn't seen for too many years to mention, I found some headphones that I knew I had but had no idea where they were. I found some journals that I had previously started but hadn't finished and a journal I did 10 years ago. The unfinished journals have now been added to my finish pile (it's really a list) and I have enjoyed looking at the journal from the past. So I don't know how really effective all this I am doing is going to be, hopefully by December 31, 2015 I will have accomplished quite a lot.
Yesterday I was at Family Dollar, it seems like I live there, and went to their version of the craft area to get me some more poster paint. That stuff is $1.00, basically primary colors and I love it. While I was there I saw some kids party favor type stuff. They had these little mini uno decks and some decks of marvel playing cards for kids. The latter had a war and rummy game in them. I thought these would be great for making tags and stuff to put in my journals.
