January 10tDSC02346h, 2013, I sat down for the very first journaling night at Half Price Books in Humble.  My customers weren’t exactly sure what to expect, and honestly, neither was I.  I brought my prisma colors, glue sticks, some fancy pens, and scrapbooking scissors.  We had magazines, scrapbooking paper, free unlined journals for all who attended, and a whole lot of untapped  creativity.

Hanging out with others while they drew, doodled, wrote, glued and pasted, was kind of awesome.  It’s relaxing to be creative with others, pool your resources, and brainstorm techniques.  Relaxing and stimulating, actually; so much so that we plan to gather monthly.

2nd Thursday of the Month from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, plan to sit around a table and really tackle the art of journaling with art.  This first meeting was a bit of an experimental night, but in the future I hope to incorporate some of those fabulous Pinterested projects that are floating around the web, possibly even start binding our own journals.

There are just so many things we could do at these gatherings and I can’t wait to dive in and pursue every avenue of this hobby.

Come be crafty with me.
