One Sentence a Day Journal Card System

Language: English
All Levels

Course description

There are many different ways to journaling and  keeping a journal, however, in this class I would like to introduce you to the simple, straightforward and fun "One Sentence a Day Journal Card System".

I personally feel that time is mostly slipping through my fingers and I needed to find a way to quickly record my days in a way that didn't seem overwhelming or take up too much time. In addition, I didn't want to feel the pressure of having to create something outstandingly beautiful, but keep track of things I have done. I wanted to  keep track of memories, as I feel I just forget what I have done, most days seeming to be very repetitive.

At the same time I was hoping to also start making more of an effort to make each day a little more special and to celebrate the little moments that make one day different from the next.

In this class I am going to show you how I prep my journal cards, how to create a simple box to keep the cards safe, as well as twelve monthly dividers, which will separate the cards in a month by month order.

What I really like about this one sentence a day journal card system is that it does not feel overwhelming, it is easy to do and it is very accessible, you can have the box of cards just sitting on your desk or even stick a week's worth of cards to your kitchen cupboard or fridge.

If you would like to find out more about it, why not enrol in this class and I'll see you in the first lesson.

Hi, my name is Nina Vangerow and I'm an artist and teacher and live in a small town in rural Wales, UK with my teenage son and out little terrier Mimi. Under the name of The Forgotten Bookshop Girl I'm working as a mixed media artist, rebind old books turning them into notebooks, create vintage style Travelers Notebook inserts, work with various forms of image transfers and love working with materials that would normally have ended up in the landfill or is just looking for a new lease of life. I have always loved anything vintage (I've got an MA in Ancient History) and am more of an analogue person, though I do love the internet and how it opens up the world to us. Most of my work has definitely a vintage feel or twist, and I'm also very much influenced by the Dada movement, well, the 20's are probably my favourite era.
