Words to Live By

December 12, 2009 Sarah Coggins

A counselor at summer camp when I was a teenager hung these words on each girl’s locker in our cabin. I’ve kept my copy in a safe place all these years and thought it was a good fit for Kim‘s Words to Live By circle journal.

This particular circle journal was bittersweet to work on as it marks the end. I shipped it to Kim on Monday and found my own on my doorstep Wednesday afternoon. I haven’t opened the box to mine yet. Instead I placed it under our Christmas tree to enjoy on Christmas Day – although it is quite tempting to look! 🙂

Supplies: Rose Moka patterned paper; Bazzill white cardstock; EK Success border punch; staples; unknown flower; Autumn Leaves button; Making Memories stitches; Micron black pen; poem author unknown.

    I know I've said it before but maybe I should join a journal circle. I wouldn't know how to go about it though! LOL
