Journaling is a great way to capture the details that make up your everyday life. Whether you're telling in-depth stories or simply captioning a photo, your words are important to preserving your memories for years to come. The following journaling prompts are perfect for pairing with this month's "Letters Home" Kit, or just tuck them into your back pocket for a time when your creative mojo is low. Either way, we hope they’ll help inspire your next project!
Tell Your Story—Not Just Your Family's
Lisa wanted to focus on making sure she told her own stories in her projects, not just her family's. And that's what she did on her spread, Reality Check. This layout is a great reminder to get yourself into your memory keeping along with your family!
Sarah chose to write a letter to herself with a reminder to slow down on her spread, Letter to Myself. We love how she kept her journaling private by tucking her words into a glassine envelope on her page!
On her spread, Good Things Are Happening, Barbara called out a list of her daughter's recent accomplishments. From killing it in school to mastering the perfect bun, each item on the list captures a snapshot of her life right now—and we're sure they'll love to look back on this spread in the years to come!
Current obsessions can change from year to year—or stay the same throughout your life. Marcy documented her love for fountain pens in her recent spread, Pens, including a list of what she currently has and what she hopes to get in the future. We love how it turned out!
In the midsts of home renovations, Lisa took the opportunity to record her current obsession with the details in her new kitchen and bathroom on her layout, Fall Notebook - Details. Don't forget to include the small moments in your memory keeping!
On her Documenter spread, This Really Happened, Pam wrote about getting locked out of the house recently. Mixing in the "real" and not-so-shiny moments with the favorite highlights is a great way to stay inspired in your documenting!
