My original intention with my old magazines had been to scan in those that I wanted to keep, recycle the rest of the magazine, and enjoy the free space. Instead, I'm putting those patterns, photos I liked, and technique instruction into my journal. I love that I'm getting more stuff out of the house and still using what I want to keep. I plan to put all those catalogues we get each week to use by clipping inspirational photos out each week, too.

Between the cold, healing, and just allowing myself to be lazy, I've lost a little bit of my normal motivation. As I sat pondering just how to get my mojo back, I was reading the blogs that I follow. Several of the bloggers were writing about dream and idea boards and journaling. After realizing that the answer was in my face, I grabbed a notebook, glue, rubber cement, scissors, and my stacks of old knitting/crocheting magazines. My friend Christina does these notebooks with her family to track and plan their lives. My "vision" for mine is to use it as a design journal, a place to jot down book titles to read, music I want to check out, hat patterns to make for charity, and any feelings/thoughts I want to download about carcinoid treatment.
