I have always loved documenting things- writing things down and saving objects and mementos so I won’t forget anything. I used to be a pack-rat and kept all sorts of things. One year I got so upset that we had to get rid of our Christmas tree that I saved some pine needles in a little container. I saved that container for 10 years.
No, I haven’t been featured on Hoarders…why do you ask?
Blogging and photography have become a great way for me to document my life and the things I love doing. I’m always looking for great ways to be creative and document parts of my life which is why I looked into getting a couple of new journals from Amazon. I didn’t just want to get a plain journal with lines (although I do need another one of those soon). I wanted something more interesting and unique, and found Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal and thought it sounded really intriguing! The “journal” has pages filled with challenges that are designed to get you a little out of your comfort zone, get creative, and wreck the book. I haven’t started on the challenges yet but am really excited to.
Some of the things you have to do are:
- Tie a string to the spine of this book. Swing Wildly. Let it hit the walls.
- Climb up high. Drop the journal.
- Cover this page using only office supplies.
I won’t spoil the rest of the challenges for you but they sound really fun! If you are interested in a creative project for this new year I would recommend you looking into Wreck this Journal and other books by Keri Smith. I’ll keep you updated as I finish some of the challenges :)
