When you are working through grief and sorrow it is hard sometimes to be creative. Here is an idea that you can do to get your friends to help you without having to talk about your broken heart and how you are dealing with life: ask them to do a page in your creative journal! Tell them you want something from them that fits your theme, and it doesn’t have to be “fine art”, just something from them. Figure out a way to share pages, I was using a spiral bound journal so it was easy to take pages out. If you have to, you can just glue new pages in.
When every one is finished you will have a precious book made by those who love you so when you are feeling down or lonely look through your collaborative journal and feel the love of family and friends!
Years ago my friend gave me a pre-printed nature journal. After making a few entries I decided to ask friends and family for input. I carefully removed pages and gave them away with instructions to have them done by my birthday. I scanned a few pages and put them on a Word document with instructions so they knew what I was expecting.
I absolutely love the pages I got back, such creative variety and interesting stories! So I thought I would share them.
