Bullet Journal Attempt and Vintage Thoughts

This week was pretty scary  - seemed each day the panic in my community and at work got a little worse.  I tried to keep calm, but a few days I did get myself worked up.  I had to calm a few people at work and in my family too so it was important to stay calm. 

Journaling in my bible helps. 

Last Saturday, I picked up some large old cards with vintage pictures and I couldn't wait to put one in my bible.  This week's Featured Stamper challenge at was the perfect inspiration.  I cased THIS card by Pauline.  I also added in some flowers and butterflies, plus some old hymnal paper.  A few of the new Close To My Heart stickers and I was done.  Of course I made sure there was green so I could link it up to **Art*Journal*Journey* - I love that place and all the people who journey together there.  Psalms 63 is a comforting one - it reminds us God is there and will help us. 
The inspiration challenge on Saturday was The Grey Muse.  I loved a blog post by Esther Y who does bullet journals - see HERE.  I decided to try a bullet journal showing all that happened this week. Psalm 37 has some awesome advice for times like these.  I dded in some green on this one too. 
I hope you are all staying safe.  I so appreciate you visiting!  Hugz, Nancy


  1. Your pages are both wonderful Nancy, and the psalms are a never ending source of wisdom and comfort. It is a scary time just now, but as you say, we need to stay calm. Have a good, new week and stay safe and healthy. Hugs, Valerie

  2. This covid-19 is scary, isn't it? And it seems everyday things just get more and more complicated and changed. Thank goodness for art, as you said. It is calming. I love your latest pages. The vintage page is beautiful and I like how you organized and drew the other page. Thanks for sharing with us at Art Journal Journey. Stay safe and stay healthy too Nancy. Hugs-Erika

  6. This is vintage beauty at its beat Nancy! Gorgeous!

  7. Beautiful Bible journaling, Nancy. Psalm 37 is perfect. Your composition is very meaningful to me. I see a lovely courageous woman who has now passed on - symbolized by the butterflies and the key. The flowers pull it all together (plus add a touch of green).

    Thanks for sharing your inspiring and calming pages with us at AJJ. Take care.
