Hello and thanks for stopping by. My name is Linda Matthews and I’ve had an online business working as a full-time artist, designer and teacher for over 15 years.

I own and manage Junk Journal Printables and Creative Art’n’Soul.

I love journals!

I love to make journals. I love to write in journals. And I love to teach others how to fall in love with journaling too.

Why I love to journal

I started journaling when I was a child when my grandmother gave me one of those little diaries with the locks on it as a birthday gift one year.

It was transformative, even at that young age.

Writing my little thoughts and locking them up in a safe, secret place with that little key. It made me feel that I could share my thoughts without having to explain them or suffer consequences. And even though I didn’t understand why, it made me feel a little better about my life.

Journaling your Story

I discovered over the years that journaling offers a way to tell the story of your life in a private and safe way.

You can use journaling …

… as therapy and a way to self-heal using guided self-introspective journals.

… as an outlet for your creativity by making your own handmade journals.

… as a way to tell your story – as it is right now – or as you would like it to be.

Once you begin to develop a journaling practice, you’ll realize that you have the power to change the story of your life.
