Decorating the Journal Cover


I chose to use a binder instead of a notebook/journal.  I guess this harkens back to my college days when I was required to create an organized binder for each music education class I took.  The goal was to be able to walk into any music teaching situation and have a year’s worth of lesson plans!

For my cover, I chose a few pictures and a distribution map of its range in North America.  I was excited to learn that I can find this plant almost anywhere!

Some things I included in my binder are:

  • notebook paper
  • colored pencils
  • zipper binder pouch
  • small field notebook
  • post it notes
  • pocket folder
  • index tabs
  • small clippers

All ready to go!

By the way, I noticed 2 seeds germinating in the greenhouse today, but they were of Baikal Skullcap Scutellaria baicalensis.

    yay! i think binders make great journals, they are so versatile! the downside to my type of journal is having to fit everything into it. i like the idea of being able to stash the pens and pencils in there.

  2. I love this! Really nice to grab and have everything in one spot! Nice! Hello “waves”, nice to meet you xx
