A few favorites

I taught a journaling class over the weekend. What a treat! We laughed, we cried, we hugged...Hands down, journaling is my absolute favorite topic to teach. That's because I believe it is so vital and liberating for each of us to tell our stories. I love helping people learn simple techniques to do just that.

As part of the class, we talked about using quotes, poems, lyrics, or book excerpts on our pages -- as a supplement to personal journaling, or as the journaling itself when we lack information about the photos. Today I thought I would share a few of my favorite sites:

Janet, thanks for the wonderful links. These are going to come in handy for me since I really stink at journaling.
Now I just need to start getting creative to use them.
