But you know its really sad when i catalog my nail polish,

I'm not good at formal journaling or diary keeping, so this is what the pages of my journal are filled with, I do have a few written entries, but nothing is in order, I just open a page and write or doodle. Random, or disturbing, hmmmm.....

I'm thinking disturbed...
No, really, I'm lovin' your doodled birds; wow!

Congrats on being featured today! I'm sure there's lots of comment love headed your way.

WheresMyAngels said...

I love the first one but ummm the nail polish one, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I have never been THAT bored. lol

Mommy Cracked said...

LMAO!!! Now that's a pretty darned good idea if you ask me. You definitely get points for creativity!

angie said...

I'm loving the doodle birds and collages!

wehave9 said...

You are a very good doodler! And the ripping photos and wine lable thing, looks like you were just being creative! I wish I had time to be bored!

Katy said...

Wow, I think you're really creative! OK, so maybe the nail polish thing is just plain disturbing... :-) Just kidding.

Heather said...

Apparently, being Fabulous since only 1971 means I lack the talent to be so creatively bored... I'm green with envy over your bored doodling ability! (Seriously, my five year old has more artistic talent than I do - if we each drew a flower, you wouldn't pick hers for the "kindergartener" level. So sad.)

Cheers!

Outnumbered2to1 said...

Wow, I think its super artsy and you have mucho creativity oozing out of your pores.

Happy SITS day.

Jodi said...

The doodling is awesome... but the "cataloging of nail polish"?? Hmmmm LOL

Creative Junkie said...

that actually makes sense to me. but then again, i'm a bit OCD!

Melissa said...

Your journals look just like my lecture notes from college. No wonder I barely graduated?

Angela said...

You are my kind of girl!

Feliz said...

Those are some nice birds. If I had time to catalog my nail polish I would. No. I wouldn't. I would just blog more. oh well.

Chandra Stauffer said...

I think it's a brilliant time-saving idea! Just think of the seconds you will save later down the road. :)

Jen said...

You are a nut but that is totally cool I wish that I had time to get board. :)

Texan Mama@WhoPutMeInCharge said...

Very Artistic! Congrats for being the SITS FB!!

Amy said...

That is pretty cool! :)

EmBee said...

I think it's AWESOME! As the owner of roughly 30 different journal/sketch books, I can attest to oodles of doodles, very little journaling, yet a whole lot of quotes I enjoy jotted down.

My latest quote:
"Forty is the old age of youth and Fifty is the youth of old age."
-Victor Hugo

Kimmers said...

Ummmm that's kind of hysterical. :)

Vicki is Not So SAHM said...

I actually wish I was creative enough to be random like that. I like how your brain works.

Casey's trio said...

Very unique journaling:)

Mekhismom said...

This is uniquely you. Not disturbing at all. Enjoy it.

Lula! said...

You are my kind of people. I am loving this!

lynn said...

What a unique way of keeping a journal. I like the doodles and collaging.

Simply Stork said...

a little of both...but nothin' wrong with that!

~simply~

jennifer said...

LOVE to doodle. LOVE your doodles! It is creativity, not boredom.

mrsbear0309 said...

I'm a former doodler, used to do it on my desktop calendar at work. I have to admit the doodle content frightened the occasional co-worker, but I'm okay with that. Congrats on the feature, SITSta, you are fabulous.

Ronnica said...

I've definitely never gone that far...

Jess said...

I'm thinking it's a WONDERFUL idea to do that. :) It's sort of like your own scrapbook.

gina said...

At least you can't edit your entries- giving a more honest look inside of you. I like your journal.

Peggy said...

Hey, your catalog looks like it came out of an Avon book. That's creative! Besides, the colors are truer this way than trying to determine from the bottle.

Lori said...

How long are you supposed to wait before closing the journal for the nail polish to dry?

Elizabeth said...

I don't keep a journal, but this seems like the way to go. Pictures, thoughts, doodles, images you like! You're very creative!

Sunshine said...

Wow...so you're pretty creative there, aren't you? I looove the birds! It's your thing. I doodle the EXACT same daisy, every single time. I can't draw ANYTHING else.

I'm all over your creativity though. LOL at the nail polish. That would never happen over here, but I admire that you thought of doing it. When I'm bored...I'm just bored.

Happy SITS day!

Andie said...

I love the birds... and I actually think that the nail polish catalog is a good idea... That way you always know!!!

Rhea said...

Your doodles look so much better than mine! Your birds are so cute. I can't draw worth a damn. Squiggly lines and flowers are my thing. lol

I love blank journals to draw and write in. I love your artistic side. Fun post!

Congrats on your SITS day!

Hot Air said...

Girl- you want to babysit? You have entirely too much time on your hands, and I have entirely to many babies on mine...

I'm thinking we're a match. ;)

Nichole and Scott said...

Hey, is the journal for you or for everyone else? No matter how it helps you reflect it's yours and you can do with it what you like. I'm thinking there will be some really fun stories told about you. Those are the best stories. You obviously have a beautifully creative mind and soul.

dddiva said...

Hahaha cute, I don't know that I'd ever be so bored as to catalog nail polish but I do make collages.
I've very much enjoyed "meeting" you through SITS and am adding you to my blog list so I can see what you are up to.

Amy said...

That is so funny. Congrats on being a saucy blog.

Party of 5 said...

Very interesting. At least your notebook says something about you. I love notebooks. Use them to write lists...but then I tear out the lists. Looks like your way is more productive.

EmmaP said...

love the doodle-journal! i wish I had moe free time to get bored! i should start saving my "doodles" from our office meetings!!! lol!

Congrats on being today's FB!

Tamara @ Watching the Grass Grow said...

Love it! Random inspiration works for me!

TheMama said...

Oh, thank GOODNESS I've found someone else who does this with nail polish!

Please tell me you also put a little of the polish on the top of the brush handle for easy sorting and identification...

Live.Love.Eat said...

Hmmm, the nail polish thing...can't say I have EVER done that. And I only own like 3 colors so it would be over & done with in a sec.

thotlady said...

The nail polish thing...a little strange, and I would go crazy without chronological order in my journal.

I love the ripped photos!

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Wow, a new level of boredom!

Naw, really, that nail polish journal page is fun!

Untypically Jia said...

LMAO! I totally catalog my nail polishes! You have to keep track of what they look like on you, so you make notes!

sassy stephanie said...

My mom always said "creative minds are rarely tidy".

The glamorous pic of you if just BEAUTIFUL!

Rela Pantaleon-Manigsaca said...

I love all of them - from the birds to the wine labels and even the nail polish (I think I've OCD)!

The best is the ripped photo - an perfect example of planned casual. Pretty, pretty, pretty!

Mama's Losin' It said...

When I'm bored I eat cookies...at least your hobbies don't make you fat.

Jen said...

What makes you happy, makes the people around you happy!

Adrian said...

Well, at least you're creatively bored. When I'm bored, I sleep. Or read. Or watch TV. Or surf people's blogs. Hmmm. I think I must be bored a lot, because this pretty much describes my life.....

Camille; Ponytail Challenge said...

I must say- not disturbing, but yes, a little random. BUT, I love random. And- those are some pretty amazing doodles. My doodles are nothing more than my own name written over and over- so kudos to you.

PhatMom said...

I think I need to do that with my nail polish!

Wep said...

There is nothing wrong with being organized :)

Melanie said...

Okay this is the same type of thing that I do but my doodles look nothing like that. You have talent.

Karen said...

Great doodles !!!

Mine all look like something that a pre-schooler would do...

Those things are all better than eating though, which I tend to do when I'm bored...

Michelle said...

Nahhhh this will be a really cool thing for your grandkids to look through and your daughter to remember you by. Way cool!

Lisa@BlessedwithGrace said...

I agree with the comment made before me. Your daughter and grandkids will love this, someday.

Rhonda said...

I totally love that you labeled the red one on the right side as opposed to the left like all the others. You'd want the label to stick out, with red being such a bland, unnoticeable color. lol

Tiffany said...

I love those birds you doodled... I wish my doodling looked like that. Geez.

mrsmouthy said...

Those are really cool! I'm adding you to my blogroll--I love that your blog posts are short, to the point, and still LOLable!

One- said...

It's definitely original!

Z's Mom said...

Wow...that is definitely random.

Its kind of a cool idea though...especially your doodling....it looked wonderful...my doodling..not so much!

Z's Mom said...

Wow...that is definitely random.

Its kind of a cool idea though...especially your doodling....it looked wonderful...my doodling..not so much!

Hillary said...

WOW, VERY creative. When I'm bored, I take a nap, lol.

Just say Julie said...

That's kind of what my calendars look like by the end of the school year... neat to see how your mind works.

Katy Lin :) said...

that's just the mark of a creative thinker :) i love the birds! :) and i think i'm inspired to go collage something when i get home!

Gina said...

As a non journaler myself, I love the randomness of blogging. I like the nail polish catalog.
Happy SITS.

I love to do collages too. I haven't done one in ages, though. Your post makes me want to go out and rip up magazines! Congrats on SITS!
