The 2nd Annual: 30 Day Journal Challenge


The 30 Day Journal Challenge is BACK
 and seriously
I am sooooo excited!!!!
It looks like many of you want to do the 30 day journal challenge along with me and that makes me soooo happy!!
This challenge will begin June 1 and take us all the way to the end of the month.
30 Days of prompts and journaling :)

Here is the skinny on how this will work:
* I will post the prompt and my journal page each morning (before 10:00 am cst)
* I will be posting all of these here, on my blog for everyone to see :)
* My pages are going to strictly be pen and paper but I want you to feel creatively free to add in whatever you want :)
* Run with Scissors has a Flickr group where we can all share our pages right here. Join it now!  There are soooo many inspiring pages from challenges past that you can check out!
* I also would love for you to post your pages on your blog as well with a link in the comments so that we can check them out as soon as they are posted!!
* Some people asked about supplies and prefrences. Here are my personal picks:
My very favorite pen, that I have used in my journals, since college, are the Papermate flair felt tip pens. These pens come in a varitey of colors:
You can use them all, or you can choose your signature color :) I am pretty boring I guess because my signature color is always black.
And for journals, I seriously have no preference.  I have tried out so many different types of journals this year and I have realized that I pretty much love them all :)
I'm a fan of thicker pages so I tend to  buy watercolor journals lately .
I'm stoked!
Here is a little snippet of my pages from last year to give you a taste of what you are in for this summer :)
Eeek! 
I am really excited about this little adventure that we will be taking together!!
The first prompt will be going live June 1:) Be there or be square.
Love you.

    I am ready for this challenge! I am guessing this is a free class due since it will be posted on your public blog, is this accurate?

    Your posted pages from your last class are so interesting!
