Guardian Angel Junk Journal
Guardian Angel Journal
When I think of what a journal should look like that I would want to write about my special moments with my children or just about my family in general, I would picture a book full of angels. I named this one Guardian Angel because I believe there is always one around to protect my family so I think they should be included in the book in which I document my memories.
I have a lot of stories that occurred during the growing up years of my children. I wish I had written down what I was experiencing at the moment that they happened. I know how I perceive them now, and how precious they are to me, but sometimes I wonder if I lost something about those moments along the way.
I wish I had something today that was in my mom’s handwriting that told of how she felt during my childhood. Sure she sometimes talks about it, but it’s funny how I didn’t picture things the way she says it was. What happens to the memories after moms gone? Where will the memories be then?
I think written documentation has many uses. It can clear things up when there is a misunderstanding because so many times people talk, but they really can’t hear past their own thoughts. When it’s written down for some reason, an idea can get across because the reader has to listen to the voice that they are reading.
It can help someone not to forget the details of a special moment. It’s just like they say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what words are you saying. What do you see?
It can heal a hurt, mend a broken heart, and bring happiness to someone’s soul.
My father has passed on, and I can’t tell you how much it would mean to me right now to have something to pick up and see his handwriting and to once again hear some wisdom, love, or memory from him.
That is why I make junk journals to sell, and why I would love to teach anyone how to make one, and why I will post here to encourage journaling. It just so happens I love the junk journal style because it’s artful and not just a blank page to look at to put a thought in. It makes a pretty frame for any photos I would wish to put in it. A junk journal has items that are from the old-times that also in itself will bring up memories.
JOURNAL FULL OF GOODNESS
Can’t you picture your family photos placed in something this beautiful? There is a lot of journaling space in this book, including some secretive places if you don’t want all your words read by just anyone who picks up the book. It has places where you can leave special notes to be left behind. Most of all it is full of Angels to help you along.
I thought it was fitting to end the book with a gold angel feather on the back of the journal.
I really love crochet just about anything. There is crochet lace on the front of the book. Crochet flowers on the front and throughout the book so why not have a crochet lace tassel hanging from the side.
I really hope you decide to start journaling and leaving memories for whoever would be the next person to pick up your book when you are gone.
