WANDERINGS - THE STORY OF THE TRAVELLING JOURNALS

I am taking part in a year long project - Travelling Journals started by Ushci. We all have a month to start our journal and then it gets posted on to someone else who keeps it for a month and fills it with creative thoughts from their lifes before posting it on again! I received Olga's Journal Hedvig last week and mine is now ready to be posted off to Sia in Amsterdam.


There are people from all over the world taking part and I can't wait to get my journal back a year from now with the creative ponderings of many people decorating its' pages.

My journal is somewhat plain - it's a Moleskine Sketchbook, but it's the inside that counts!! I have completed 4 pages and hopefully that will give the others a little bit of information about me!


I've never kept a creative journal before and this is going to be an interesting learning experience for me. Whilst I know there are no rights and wrongs in keeping your own journal I am a little nervous about what is expected and will it be "creative" enough!

Sounds like a fascinating project! Although if I did keep a creative journal, I think I'd feel sad about having my stuff move off to other people.

But I guess you receive so much of the creativity of others in return...

what an amazing idea. i have tossed around keeping a creative journal, but it hasn't happened yet!

I will be very exited receiving your journal, Di! I think the beautiful thing is to relate to the person who started the project more than deliver full art-work!!!
I love moleskines!!

What a cool project to be part of, Di! Wish I had known about it...although the commitment would big to be able to write something everyday. Best of luck!

Wow - how fun! You'll love Costa Rica if you go and visit - it's beautiful..although I imagine Scotland is very beautiful too...never been to Europe - guess I'll have to wait til the kids are older since 6 tickets would be pricey (esp. from Hawaii)! Good luck with your journaling!

what a fantastic idea! I expect the "owner" eventually gets their journal back and its filled with all the creativity of the others.
