this is the stuff i don't leave home without. it is all packed in a little blue nylon bag that was part of a gift with purchase from estee lauder about a million years ago. this is the kit i use for the writing part. my pages are painted and decorated, usually, before i write in them, so when i sit down to actually journal, this is what i dig into for pens and stuff. there is a small 6 inch ruler in case i need to make a straight line, and a little stapler with gold staples in case something comes my way and must be inserted, the thing in the bottom left is my date stamp. i always date my entries with month/day/year/time/day of the week. actually that is my ONLY journal rule. it MUST be dated. PERIOD. there are no other rules i follow.
the turning of the corner. my double and triple stacked stuff. paper cutters, scrap basket, kleenex, painting in progress, boombox for music or audio books, clock so i know how much time i am spending having fun. the stacked drawers are full of paper sorted by color families and one next to it has clippings sorted by things like words, people, animals, flowers, stuff... stuff is actually a category, it includes objects that do not have enough pictures to require their own drawer.
moving to the right we have the actual workspace which has some inprocess stuff on it. teesha moore collage sheets on the wall for inspiration, pens, rulers, water containers, some stamps that have never made it into the stamp boxes, my wipe stuff off towel.
