Sweetness and Light

Today I wanted to unburden my thoughts over the pages of my blog but decided instead, to use some old fashioned restraint on my innermost thoughts. For today I am going to try to keep this page sweetness and light much like the chocolate dipped marshmallows you can see above.

To my mind I am a highly emotional person and find it hard to keep what I am feeling hidden away.  I know that I need to find an outlet for all this and think I have found the answer; which is creative, personal journaling.

I have been thinking about journaling for a while now but felt intimidated by all the fantastic journals I have seen on line and in books. After discovering a wonderful on line course, full of like minded souls I am ready to take the plunge.  I have never attempted journaling before so this is all a whole new experience for me and a different way to express myself with creative media.  I am sure that I will share some of my work with you as I proceed through the course.

Oh, I forgot to say 'Happy November'!  I am off to devour a marshmallow mountain!

* The free workshops I am taking part in can be found at Jennibellie Studio.


  1. Oh I look forward to reading about your journal. I think you will love it.
    Those marshmallows look delicious too!

  2. Well I'm certainly looking forward to seeing some of your journaling Simone!!

  3. Unfortunately I don't like marshmallows - but I like journals and journaling very much and would love to create one too. But I can't even keep up with blogging so fear it will have to be something for my old age! Please share and inspire me Simone!

  4. I think the journalling sounds like a wonderful way to express yourself.
    Those marshmallows would be perfect with a hot chocolate.

  6. Favourites come and then they go...
    But I still love marshmallow.

    Journaling sounds interesting, looking forward to reading it.

  7. Hello Simone,

    Happy days.

  10. Hi, Simone. So glad to hear that you're thinking of doing some journaling. I think I've suggested it to you in the past. It doesn't need to be pretty or neat or perfect; that's not the point. It has always helped me to clear my head and free myself from negativity (well, as much as possible).

    I hope the class is good!
