Q&As have become an all-time classic. Whether on YouTube, Instagram or on many other platforms around the Internet, people seem to enjoy them. But in my soon to be three years writing this blog I have never done it myself. I asked you guys to send me your questions earlier today which I want to answer along with some frequently asked questions. If I leave anything unanswered, feel free to ask me in the comments.
How many journals do you have?
At the moment I am working on four journals at the same time. My traveler’s notebook with my morning pages and my “normal” writing pages, my bullet journal, my art journal and my junk journal. I don’t work in each journal every week but I love each and every one of my journals.
What’s your favorite journaling supply?
My favorite journal supply used to be Washi Tape. I have over a 100 rolls of Washi Tape but at the moment what I use most are cutouts from magazines and all kinds of pictures I find. I love it when my penpals send me some as well. I just recently bought some indigo liquid watercolor from Ecoline and I am obsessed with it as well. It’s just so hard to decide.
How do you keep up with your journaling habit?
Keeping up with your journaling habit can be hard. I get this question a lot and I always say the key to it is to set aside time for yourself to journal. If it helps you can also write it down in your calendar, planner, bujo… as an appointment. Just remember, you can’t be creative all the time. Over the last two weeks, I haven’t been journaling at all because I just couldn’t get myself to do it and that is fine with me. Stressing yourself about keeping a habit just makes it harder to actually keep up with it.
What is your all-time favorite page?
This is an amazing question but it is so hard to answer. I don’t think I have one favorite page. There are so many pages I am proud of but here are some I narrowed it down to four pages I really like:
How do you make your journal pages?
I don’t think I can give a good answer to this question. Each and every page is different but I guess for each page I try to get the pictures and ideas in my head on the paper.
Are you accepting new penpals?
Sadly I am not accepting new penpals right now. I recently started writing to two new penpals and it turned out to be harder to keep up with 5 penpals than I thought it would. It always takes me ages to reply and I am always catching up on my letters
These are all the questions I got for today. Thank you so much for reading. If there is anything you would like to know please ask me in the comments. I always enjoy chatting with you guys.
Lots of Love

2017 is slowly coming to an end. In less than three weeks we will say goodbye to the last year and will welcome 2018. It is time to look back on the last twelve month and maybe look forward to what is coming next. Now is the time to set our new years resolutions and most important, it is the perfect time to journal and record this whole process. Here are 6 journaling prompts to get you started with journaling about the last and upcoming year.
It doesn’t matter what you do with these prompts. You could try to draw, you could write a long text or just create a simple list. Do whatever makes you happy and don’t compare yourself to others because journaling is about you and nobody else.
In 2017 I…
Create a list of things you did in 2017. Think about the places you have been to, goals you have achieved and things you did. Take the good memories with you and leave the bad memories behind.
In 2018 I will…
Create a list of things you will do in 2018. Set yourself goals and think about things that will happen for sure. For example, in 2018 I will turn 19 and graduate and I want to move out and go to university. Get yourself excited about what will come next.
At the beginning of 2017 I…
Think about who you were twelve months ago. What did you dream of? What where you planning to do? What has changed in the last twelve months? Evaluate the good and the bad changes and maybe draw a conclusion for the coming year.
In the end of 2018, I want to…
Think about who you want to be in twelve months. Think about your personality, how you want to feel, people you want to have around you… Create a picture of who and where you want to be in December next year.
Things that changed in 2017
Create a list of things that changed during the last year. Did you change? Did any circumstances change? Your friends?
Write a letter to your future self.
I think it is a great idea to write a letter to your future self at the end of each year because one day you can read through them and see how you have changed. You could also write a letter to 2017 or 2018 telling who you are now or who you want to become which goes along with the previous prompts
If you try out any of these prompts I would love to hear about how you liked them.
Lots of Love
