Welcome to the Happy Journal Challenge

Hi everyone! I’m Jennie, author of the book, Happy Journal, Happy Life, and your host of the #happyjournalchallenge. In the next 30 days, we are going to grow our mindfulness muscles as we look for and expect the good things in our lives.

Have you ever struggled with saving your best art and creativity supplies because they're so NICE? You'll appreciate this article.

Use Your Art Supplies

Here is a small manifesto about you taking the time to finally USE your art supplies. The precious, beautiful, perfect, and expensive ones. It’s time.

It used to be that when I bought a pen I liked or a pretty little journal, I would keep them nice and pretty and “safe.” I still have Twin Star stickers that are in mint condition from my childhood. (Long live Hello Kitty and her friends!) But if there’s one thing my daughter has taught me, it is this:

Art supplies and creative supplies of all kinds are meant to be used.

I've had a couple of questions as to why I chose to not share a lot of examples (picture-wise) in my latest book, Happy Journal, Happy Life. Believe me, I was going to have this guide to happiness filled to the brim with pictures. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized . . . there were three good reasons why I needed to pair down. I think you'll agree.
