From Pin to Pen

I'm talking Pinterest again today because I really want to show you my favourite find so far:

It's a ready-to-print-out-and-fill-in journaling sheet from the extremely clever Christie at Grace is Overrated. She has a whole collection of these  waiting for you to use (with the promise of a couple more over the Summer). If you enjoy using your markers, you'll like the plain ones to colour yourself, but you can also try out the completely ready to go kind like this one. And she's happy for you to blog the results. I asked. What's not to love?

I'm going to be filling out a few more of these (just dipping in and picking one I like, (you don't have to do them in order), I can tell. I might even be able to persuade The Small One to join me. What do you think?

Thank you to everyone who joined in Storytelling Sunday this month. If you haven't had a chance yet, do click through from your Reader here to enjoy. And don't forget, you may add your own story any day all week!

I ignore my excessive tea consumption too - just wish Craig would as well and stop grumbling about the amount of tea bags I get through single handedly *g*

I've been over and had a look and printed a few off to fill in. She's brilliant at these jounalling pages and asks things I wouldn't even necessarily think of. I'll be going back for more I think. TFS :0)

Elizabeth said...

I'm really glad you gave this link. I agree it would be good to do with a child as a way to start journalling.

I am concerned you say you are drinking lots of water because it's good for you. I hope you know that isn't actually true, we don't need a lot of water each day but the bottled water manufacturers like us to think we do.

Sian said...

Elizabeth, please don't worry! Like a lot of my life, it's very tongue in cheek. Drinking lots of water actually means thinking about substituting one glass of water for one of my many coffees. And yes, I do know too much coffee is bad for me...
