List journaling is a favorite pastime of mine. I love getting all of the wild and crazy thoughts out of my head and down onto paper. I find it so much easier to word-vomit out in lists than trying to turn my thoughts into perfect prose. As such, I’ve been playing along with the 30 Days of Lists semi-annual listing challenge for more than five years now. Sometimes it’s a little break because just five minutes to jot down a few thoughts is all I need. Other times I save up all my lists for the weekend, or a nighttime craft jam. So, here’s what I created for the 30 Days of Lists: March 2016 challenge.
This little project has gifted me some of my all-time favorite scrapbook albums. YES, this is scrapbooking. First of all, even if you’re not using photos (and you totally could), you’re still telling your right-now story through lists. That’s all that matters. Scrapbooking is not just about the photos, it is about so much more.
One of my favorite 30 Lists traditions has been to create different types of albums. As a result, I can flex my creative muscles in a different way each time. Sometimes I make small books, sometimes I make large books, and finally, other times I try to squeeze #30lists into another project I’m working on.
For this edition of 30 Days of Lists: March 2016, I’m using a 7×9 vertical kraft two ring binder. I’ve filled up the album with found paper and other memorabilia. Each page has a pink label running across with the day’s list. This is the same album I used in this past summer’s Find Your Voice workshop. This time, as such I rotated the album 90 degrees so that the binding is on the top and not the left-hand side.
