Commonplace Books are a journal…for keeping ideas, quotes, notes, and ephemera.
I’ve been keeping Commonplace Books for over 30 years and over that course of time my notebooks have taken on many forms, but the thing that remained the same with each was how they inspired me and helped me to focus. They let me write something that is relevant at the time, ponder on it, and return to it at a later time.
Using Commonplace Books for Self-Care during times of stress or loss will give you a record of what you’ve gone through and how you have changed. Over time these books turn into a personal anthology of thoughts and reflections.
In this class I’ll share the history of Commonplace Books, how to use them as Self-Care, the different types of Commonplace Books and then I’ll demonstrate the two ways I use Commonplace Books. One being lines and lines of text and the other a collage style that combines visuals with bits of inspirational text.
The lessons include:
- What is a Commonplace Book?
- History of Commonplace Books
- Using Commonplace Books for Self-Care
- Types of Commonplace Books
- Supplies Needed
- Project 1 – Text Commonplace Book
- Project 2 – Collage Commonplace Book
- Commonplace Book Flip-Through
