Everyone's always talking about junk journals these days, I'm not a journaling person, and I'm not that interested in making them. I do collect things, though. Doesn't everyone?
A few years ago, I bought this journal at a garage sale for $1:
I remember one night last year when I was tired of sorting and packing things, I gathered a pile of my found things, some washi and just started taping things into this. It was very soothing.
At one point, I started putting samples of all my washi in the book.
This is the last page in the book. I didn't do this all at once, I might have done about 10 pages that night before I either got tired or ran out of stuff. I've been slowly adding to this throughout the past year, like I said, I find it very soothing. I also like adding to it every time I find something interesting. A lot of the items are found in books, some are things I've gotten.
