The List Journal Project: Facts About Me

thelistjournal_title.jpg

The List Journal Project is about writing lists in your journal. Hanna and I made each other stitched journals especially for the project, and we are opening our journals and sharing our lists with you each Saturday until we finish our journals.

We hope that you will play along! You can write a list on an index card, type a list in a funky font and print it and glue it into your art journal, hand write a list onto an art journal page, or add a list box to the corner of that day's to-do list. In any way you wish.

This is pretty boring list, now that I am reading it again. I'd like to go back and add, "I want to learn how to make homemade pasta" and "I'm a good cook but I'm forgetful so I burn a lot of things" and "I loathe pantyhose."

If the "Things I Know" list proved difficult, this might be a bit easier. Factoids. Little facts, big facts, obvious facts, hidden gems. You could write "I'm allergic to rutabagas" or "My least favorite color is maroon" or perhaps "I don't know how to play Parchesi" on your list. Lists don't have to be serious. They don't have to be anything, really. You can make it funny but true, like, "My daughter wants a cat" followed by "I'm a dog person." Then add "My husband once had a canary" almost like the items on the list are talking to each other.
