Happy Weekend!

Do you ever have one of those weeks that just blurs by, leaving you wondering where exactly certain days went? I had one of those, and I STILL have no idea what I did on Friday...or today for that matter.

In light of my ailing memory, I'm really digging the idea of keeping a journal - a real paper and ink journal, complete with little snippets of inspiration. I'm obviously not the only one lusting after a scrapbooking outlet, as Polka Dot Robot put these lovely images together as part of her Online Art Journal Class (which sadly seems to be all booked out - boo!)

I have a whole box full of half-empty art journals that I never quite got around to finishing, so I think this might just be a new project...and a new reason to update my cork inspiration boards (the ones that haven't changed a bit since I posted these photos in 2008 - oops!)

Perhaps I've been avoiding the land of scissors and glue after far too many nights spent making 'concept collages' at architecture school, but I think I've had enough of a break now that it might just be time to bring my crafty scissors out of retirement. I even have a little project to spur me into action (it's top secret for now, can't wait to show you!)

What do you think of the resurgence of journals, diaries and all things scrapbooky? Do you have the time and/or stamina to keep one going? I'm the Queen of Unfinished Projects, but maybe, just maybe, I'll keep one going through the year if I have a little help from you all!

In fact, I'm going to start one right now! I'll be back tomorrow with a few Weekend Reads, but in the meantime I wish you all a grand weekend!
