My jiffy-bag-journal is one of my favourite long-term projects. I add pages as I go, meaning it's never half finished (like everything other sketchbook or journal I start). It's made of leftovers and scraps and tickets, all stuck together with masking tape and pritt stick. It's good for emptying the brain.
Please remember, this is a journal and any thoughts and emotions expressed are mine and they're personal. I mainly write my journal on bad days, days that I don't like to blog about - no one's life is a fairytale, after all.
