Supplies you will need:
-Craft or scrapbook paper
-Pens and markers, possibly stickers
-A glue gun
-A hole punch
-3 rings to hold your journal together
Get your craft on! Look up ideas for journal writing or journal prompts online or just steal some of mine. Write these (one per page) on your construction paper. For example, one of mine says "If you could only take 3 people with you on a road trip around the world, who would you take and why?" Leave the rest of the page to decorate. For example, a sticker of a Route 66 sign would be appropriate for decorating. Add your own flairs to each page. Modge Podge is easier and less messy than regular glue or tape and it doesn't come off easily. Also, we Modge Podged cardstock to the first and last pages to make them a little bit thicker. The glue gun can be used to attach buttons or sequins as decor to pages. Hole punch your papers once you are done and attach them with rings. Then get ready for fun and answer all your questions by writing and drawing. The result will be your very own masterpiece! Mine looks like:

Now, for the fun part:
MY FIRST DREAM JOURNAL ENTRY
The prompt was: "List the friends you remember from the various stages of your life: grade school, junior high, high school, and college."
Happy journaling! :)
UPDATE: SECOND DREAM JOURNAL ENTRY.
My prompt was "Make a collage of things you want for your dream house." So much fun! I went through a ton of my mom's old magazines and cut and pasted things I liked onto the page!
UPDATE: THIRD JOURNAL ENTRY.
My prompt today was "Make a list of ABC's to describe yourself."
UPDATE: THIRD DREAM JOURNAL ENTRY.
So, I know I haven't blogged in a while (sorry, Kat) and it has been even longer since I updated this post. I've had my dream journal for what seems like AGES and I've almost completed all of the prompts. The last entry I accomplished was this one:
And it was super fun. I made a cheesy valentine (even though it's more than a month early for Valentine's Day- oh well) for Josh (he loved it by the way!). Here's what it looked like:
It didn't help that I watched Les Mis the night before, so naturally, I was a bundle of emotions when I created the Valentine. Thus, my favorite quote from Les Mis!
And, of course, like all 3rd graders do, I decorated the envelope with sticker hearts.
Here's to love, ya'll.
