I love documenting everything in my journals, be it big or small. And the 10th Anniversary of the DIY Postcard Swap (my annual swap that you can still join today if you want to make postcards) was definitely a big milestone for me, so of course I wanted to document in my Randomosity journal!
I documented it last year but I created a little “Journal with me” video that’t I am sharing today.
Video: Journal with me
The page is not a favorite, and I don’t think it is very profesional looking or anything, but sometimes it is more about the process or the idea behind it (my love of the swap and my feeling of being very grateful to everyone who has ever joined it) that matters most.
Sometimes it is better to get something documented & done than to wait for the right supply, feeling, moment – or ink for your tired printer, right? At least that is my philosophy when it comes to most things when it comes to creativity.
In other words: do it when you think of it, don’t wait too long. This might be especially true when it comes to documenting moments and memories, if you dont capture them right away you will forget about it and time will keep rolling as fast as it does sometimes.
Documenting happy & sad things
In this same Randomosity journal I have also documented (and made process videos of) my birthday last year (that time I was swatching my metallic watercolor paints) as well as a spread on the pandemic although it’s probably time to document both again soon. I never imagined a year ago that we would still be living with the Corona virus around us at this time, but we are. Maybe it was a good thing that we didnt know then how much this would affect all our lives?
But in times like these I think that making handmade postcars and having people to send them to is more important than ever, so the swap is one choice you can make that will make life a little brighter.
Thanks for leaving me a comment below, about the swap, this spread in my journal or the video or anything else you feel will add value to our shared experience.
Until next time, take care! And make (and send) handmade postcards!
