When whimsy strikes

Someone asked me what I would use my 'Whimsy Journal' for. Well, it is totally for whimsy! I jot down ideas as I think of them, so that I don't forget. I keep it nearby so that when inspiration strikes (and it can be any time of night or day!) I can quickly put the idea to paper.
I print off photos of quilts & artworks that inspire me & stick them in my journal.
And generally just doodle about! It is fun & just for me. 
Weirdly, I am at my most 'whimsical' & come up with my best ideas when I am feeling a bit sad & introspective! So the journal is always close at hand at those times.
And the little girly on the front never fails to make me smile!


  1. Of course, what else would you use it for? Looks enchanting.....

  2. Lovely idea!! You are very arty too!! Cathy

  3. Perfect! (thanks for the peek into your creative pages...)

  5. Oh WOW! I love pretty journals, they are just so much nicer to write in, thanks for sharing, LOVE your Blog

  6. Great idea, and oh so lovely!

  7. I love what you are using your journal for, especially love the picture of the string star!!

  8. I love your journal and it is such a great idea! I often save pictures of things I like and then I forget where I put them! I am going to have to get a journal to start keeping things in!
