That is so beautiful Jennifer, the bride is going to love it!! Making these journals is so very fun, and yes addicting.

Thank you ladies! I'm excited today as I just picked up an order of copies I had sent to Staples last week. Some super cute fall designs! I'm ready to get creating again! Yay!

Oh my goodness, I received a package today from Marilyn with not one but two amazing junk journals. I must figure out what's amiss with my camera phone and try to get some photos posted. The larger of the two is loaded with laces of all kinds and lots of hand dyed papers -- just beautiful. The smaller one is made with the little book I sent out and I swear she must have used every piece of ephemeral that I sent. Such talent to be able to make it all work together so seamlessly. Thank you so much Marilyn for the Beautiful journals and all the delightful extra goodies. You really spoiled me.
hugs,
jean

Thank you again Debbie, it’s such fun to flip through. I discovered the Susan Branch bookmark this morning that was tucked into a secret pocket. Love it!!

Aawesome, awesome, awesome !! Thanks for sharing Wanda Sue. And, you know that makes me think if any of you just can't hardly wait to do another junk journal. Why don't you mosey on over to the new Fall Feedsack Swap and sign up for it. Just think how adorable a junk journal would be covered in feedsack material and with pages throughout related to feedsacks. Oh my, that would be just too too . . . . .
hugs,
jean

Just a wee note to thank y'all for playing in the Dog Days Junk Journal swap. It was great fun. Maybe ?? we'll do another one in the winter when we all have cabin fever.
A big shout out and apology to my partner, Marilyn, as I am currently unable to photograph. Her journals (yes, that's an extra "s" as there were two) are most delightful to behold. Marilyn clearly LOVES lace. And I bid you adieu with a marvelous tip she sent -- Always include a 'hard piece' with each journal you make. That is a thick, flat piece of book board or cardboard that can be decorated or not. Why, you ask? Well, think about it -- when the JJ's get full of stuff and you want to write on or decorate one of the pages in it, it can be really a challenge to work on lumpy pages. Just slip your 'hard piece' under the page and voila you have a hard flat surface to work on -- Genius Marilyn. Thank you.
hugs,
jean

Hi There Junk Journalists -- I was just taking another finger stroll through the delightful Junk Journals that Marilyn sent me for this swap. The smaller one was quite Valentine related so very timely right now. The larger one was truly a work of art. Marilyn you are sooooooo creative and really have a flare for junk journals. I hope you are still making them -- such talent and wonderfully creative ideas. Thanks all over again.
hugs,
jean

What exactly are Junk Journal's? they look very nice. Do you write in them too? what all do you use to make them. I would like to try and make one.

Sheila,
There are actually all types of junk journals. I have done 3 different kinds. One I just decorate the pages of a blank journal any way I want. Here is an example of a page I did.

Another is to use pages you can print off and make a themed junk journal. I did one of wolves and the moon for my oldest granddaughter and did one with dragons for my next oldest granddaughter.
Lots of digital kits for those on Etsy.

You can do what I think is a real junk journal using junk mail, papers you can dye with coffee or tea. YouTube has tons of tutorials or you can look on Pinterest for ideas and examples. You can leave empty pages to write in and decorate some pages what you like because you create it.
