- You may even hear Edward chatting in the background if you listen closely enough!
Monica's Top Tip for Inspiration
Use Pinterest as a holding place for your inspiration. Pin when you find something inspiring and then dig in when you are starting work on a project.
Monica's True Scrap Class
Former elementary school teacher Monica Bradford says, “All I really need to know about how to live and what to journal and how to write I learned in first grade. Meaningful pages are not at the top of the magazine mountain, but there in the picture pile on my scrap table.
These are the things I learned:
All I need is an idea and a #2 pencil to begin
Story is more important than perfect grammar
A good book can be a great example
Sentence starters are for everyone
If first graders can do this…so can I.”
Join Monica as she shares these tips and more as she helps you simplify your journaling.
