Book lovers décor suggestions

Well it’s that time of year to start the spring cleaning. I hope you haven’t already as I have some organizer and decor ideas for you.

Though I hope if you have a love of books would not destroy them in such a way, especially those that are not old looking books they could be worth money! I can understand old school books for the hideaways or purse or maybe someone gave you a copy of a book you already have. I can understand if you want to do it with the extra but I would rather donate mine to a school, or someone that cannot afford books and has a hard time getting around (to a library)

 

I Iike the  color grouping and giant wall clock! I would use all the janet Evanovich books! That Scrabble letter holder idea, you could also do that with scraps of a type of moulding as that’s what those are. The storage bins ad omg the lamp of large thread bobbins but how the heck did they get them in the wall? and ceiling that I really like!  My favorite though has to be the stairs. I wish ours were like that or even ones that opened for storage.

Transition words

First we examine what transition words are, the words that push your story forward. Next we examine how they are used. Honestly if you didn’t already noticed, I used two transition words in these sentences! Add information ‘for instance, when you show an example, or “below” you will find a list of these type of words and the categories they fall under.

They keep order, of First and last, but let’s hope we don’t get into a Who’s on 1st discussion.  They compare things and not ‘in the same way’ metaphors  or similes do. Emphasize your point “which in fact”, make you see the big fat period at the end of the argument “like” the old talk to the hand gesture.  So

here’s the list of the words to use to transition print it,laminate it and refer to it if you are stuck

Now how to use them is up to you.

The Five Minute Journal

Want to start a journal but not sure what to do with it?  You can check more out in my “How to use a journal’ pages (so far 2  pages on journals are posted) of all the different themes there are, as well as ideas and more.

You can have one general journal to keep all your thoughts, stories, Life moments, Poems, Movie,tv, book product reviews even recipes.   Try finding a pocket sized one for the year or those moleskine type ones. (Something the thicker the better so you can hopefully just have one or 2 a year. I’ve  tried this out Moleskine 2016 Daily Planner, 12M, Extra Small, Black, Hard Cover (2.5 x 4)

Or you can do them by theme, or if you still have no idea or need some help what to write, there are journals that come with ideas for topics for that day called prompts. There are others of the sort that are for lists.

What is a journal? It can be anything you want! it can be a personal diary that you tell everything to, it can be work on a project, note for or the story itself. Poems or you can just make a doodle sketch one out of a journal. Mine is across between a journal & a smash book! If you are having a problem at work or school with someone.. write it all down. Keep it with you or in your locker. You can even have a friend(witnesses) write their side of the story in it as well. Keep track of your pain & how you manage it, also track your diet & fitness there are some Ideas on my Beauty blog . There are Sentence a day journals, or a short paragraph to sum up whatever you want.  Use different colors for different topics, entertainment etc.

Find a style that suits you… I personally Recommend the Moleskin Brand but there are plenty I love on Amazon (You can find them in the pages on Journaling in the menu)

Here’s the Travel Theme journal mentioned in Last Weeks post

Here’s a beach theme (a good idea for just writing up what beaches you traveled to what you did or not like about them,even if you are going to write a short story, or a small novel with a beach theme they will inspire you.

This Roadtrip Journal will inspire you with it’s template also journaling is great when its a rainy day on your Vacation or roadtrip and if you would prefer a spiral bound one

Know someone going to Summer camp? This is a cute journal (for the girls at least)  Or This eco friendly one could be used for anyone
