cereal boxes and their own journals…I have officially begun to share my OCD with the children.
Last night I gave them each a notebook and they begun to alter it and journal. One wrote about the New Year’s Eve family partys we used to have in the US. He got his idea by reaching into my box of K&Company Tags to Go and pulling the word nostalgia. I thought I would be using them more for scrapping and stuff, but they became more of a nusanse than anything else so I begun to use them to journal…Everyday I take one out and use the word as the basis of my layout. There is over a thousand in the box so sometimes it may repeat, but I also have a journal jar with 100 things to journal about on strips of paper…I just choose then toss it or I glue it to the layout so I remember the source of the idea.
One took an old Ikea catalog and ripped out letters and made a header for his page! I couldn’t believe the amount of stuff they had to write and they had fun using the different color gel pens for decoration, too!
Just what I need…partners in crime! Muwahahaha!
