#5 My Journal Obcession

I am obcessed with journals. I have been writing every day since I was ten and have accumulated a huge collection. The following is a description of each journal and where I got it:

1. Small Winnie the Pooh journal; got one for Becky for Christmas and bought one for myself at the same time (from the Disney store)
2. Blue with hot air balloons all over it; I think this came from Borders or something, but I don't quite remember.
3. Black with the American Girl logo in different colors all over it; a Christmas gift from my parents.
4.Pink with pawprints and pictures of kittens on it; in my Easter basket
5.Purple with WWJD on the front; another Christmas gift
6.Precious Moments with a lock; Birthday gift from Sarah M.
7.Navy blue with a heart-shaped balloon I drew on the front; bought at Waldenbooks with some friends
8.Thomas Kinkade painting; gift for some occasion (Easter?)
9. Yellow with three beach scenes on the front; bought on vacation to the Outer Banks, NC
10.Blue with a picture of a hill and some trees in the middle. Around the picture it says, "The Journey is often better than the Destination"; I think I bought this at Walmart
11. A picture of a lighthouse against a cloudy sky with "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path" at the top; another Walmart find.
12. Different colors of tissue paper pasted on the cover with "Journal" written in the middle; I made this one at a point when I was broke.
