I meant to do this yesterday. But there was so much to do yesterday. Plus my son, Lucas, decided to wake up 7 times the night before and I wasn’t having that so I slept in while my momma watched him for a bit. (Because she’s super awesome.)
So, I’m starting bible journaling. Bible journaling is really a great way for hands on, creative types to really connect with the bible. I am hands on and my creative mind won’t shut up half the time. Growing up, my bulletin from Sunday service inevitably had doodles all over. Sometimes, I had to steal my mom’s to draw on too. So to hear about bible journaling, I was instantly intrigued. It is perfect for me.
Normally, I don’t remember what I read; whether I read it aloud or silently to myself. I have terrible reading comprehension. So from what I’ve read, this could help! So here is my list of supplies. I know this list will grow. If I had about $200 to blow on myself and my hobbies, I would have a much longer list. I got all my supplies from Hobby Lobby. Minus the bible which was purchased from Mardel’s. And you can get it much cheaper online. Clicking all the pictures should send you to a link of where to find such items.
ESV Single Column Journaling Bible – To be honest, I’ve never used ESV, I am an NIV kind of girl. So reading a new translation should be fun. Worse case scenario, I just use one of my hundred other bibles or the app on my phone. But I think this is gorgeous! And who doesn’t love a brand new bible?
Washi Tape – I saw washi tape from Taz and Belly
who is another bible journaler/blogger who is a lot of my inspiration. I found this at hobby lobby for $4. But apparently they are also at target in the dollar section. I haven’t seen them, nor have I gone looking for them either. But I will get back to you on that.
Prismacolor Magic Rub – This is for erasing my pencil marks. It doesn’t rub into a nasty color some other erasers. And it also doesn’t smear my ink.
Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue – I’ve been using this for about a year now I think. And I use it for all my crafts. I’m a pretty big fan because it has a precision tip and a larger side for bigger projects.
Bazzill Basics Paper – Card stock! And my favorite color as of late, gold. This was $7.
More card stock. I’ve had these since July 2014 for my bridal shower. People wrote encouraging notes and advice on the back. This was left over so I’m not positive where this came from. But knowing me, most likely hobby lobby. They have a lot of choices. I will use these card stocks for tabbing and embellishments!
Crayola Watercolors – Simple crayola watercolors. Nothing fancy. Got this big pack for $5 maybe? I just loved all the colors! I almost got these
instead. But went with traditional because I’m afraid of change.
These are my writers. Yeah, that’s what I’m gonna go with. First is just a simple mechanical pencil
. Nothing special except the color, which happens to be my favorite, purple. The next is my pen. This is the Sharpie pen
. It’s bleed free. Then we have what I will use for white, which is a Tree House Studio Paint Markers
. This size is my favorite because its a fine point. And of course, we have a paint brush. This is the same one that came with the watercolors. Nothing special.
So like I said, it’s a short list. And as it grows, I will let you know what I find! And how I like it! But now, my son is asleep, my husband is asleep. So I get my quiet time. And I’m gonna journal for the first day! Hopefully, I will have the outcome later tonight!
Once again, happy new years y’all!
