My Travel Notebook Almost Full

Full Journal

In 2012 we lived in a Winnebago and I started keeping a travel journal using an old dictionary, a Reader’s Digest Word Finder. Hardly a notebook – more a tome! Perhaps a “Big Bertha” (Nod to Shannon Green.)

Still travelling but in a caravan and not full time, so the journal is used for travel and life notes now.

Word Finder

Some time ago, my friend Noreen gave me another Word Finder which will be my new journal after the current one is completely full. That day is almost here.

A spread from a couple of years ago.

Journal repairs

The poor book was getting very worn and the spine was parting. I gave it a facelift by strengthening the spine with cloth tape and collaging some of the removed original pages onto the covers. I added a ribbon closure and a fancy brad.

I am still deciding on decorations for the cover.

I have had many careers in my 70+ years, but always creativity was at the forefront. I am passionate about using less and wasting less. I love design, painting, decorating, and now I am combining all that into making junk journals. Creating is like breathing for me!
