365/30 Lists: 2014 | Week 1

Happy Aloha Friday! I decided to embark on a new adventure this year :) Writing everyday is one of my Goals for 2014. I was debating whether or not I wanted to add something new to my schedule, but with the success of completing all of my projects last year, as scheduled, I felt I could handle one more thing...

I've always loved writing... since childhood, actually. I still have all of my old diaries and journals from when I was a kid. Sadly, I haven't done any daily writing or journaling for a very long time. Sure, I do journal on some cards every week for my Project Life album, but I feel like I want more. So I decided to rekindle my love for writing... by making lists. Who doesn't love a good list?!

Since I'm a Filofax Addict, and my planners are already full of random lists... I thought I would join in on the fun with 365/30 Lists: Philofaxers! I'm already in the Philophaxy Facebook group, so it's a really great companion. All of the planning for this new project is done in my A5 Original. 

365/30 Lists: 2014 | The Journal

But I'm the type that loves to have my writing together all in one place, especially a project like 365/30. The space in my Filofaxes is already spoken for, so putting 30 separate lists in them each month is out of the question. Being a journaler, it only made sense to keep a single book for all of this year's lists. So I decided to document my journey in a journal. It's all together in one place... and I can easily look back on it for many years to come. Could you imagine a shelf full of them? Seeing how much the world, along with myself, has changed over time... through these lists.

The journal I'm using is a favorite that I've had for almost 10 years. I'm so happy I'm finally able to put it to good use! I purchased it from Barnes & Noble, and it's the PaperBlanks line. The colors are lovely, it has a beautiful texture, a magnetic wrap-around cover, and an accordion pocket in the back for little extras. For the title, I added black foam thickers called "Wish" by Amy Tangerine.

365/30 Lists: 2014 | Journal - The Cover Page

I decorated the cover page of my journal with a Martha Stewart label sticker, and chose a few favorite designs of washi tape for accent. I used three different designs of varying widths, and cut them into banners and an arrow.

[Mail Tape by Scotch, Gray Chevron by ThePaperStudio from Hobby Lobby, Neon Paper Tape by KID MADE MODERN from Target]

Each month, 365/30 Lists: Philofaxers! releases a new list of prompts. Every week, I'll be sharing the pages of my book here on my blog. Follow me on my new adventure. I'm using the hashtag #30filolists on Instagram. If you're a list lover or journaler like me, incorporate these lists into your life. Document your journey. As for me, I get to check a few things off my 2014 Goals list...
