List 1: A Few Things About Yourself

Welcome welcome welcome!

Today is the first day of our 30 Days of Lists journaling challenge .... and we thought we'd start out nice and easy with a simple prompt

List 1: A few things about yourself

I happen to keep my About page on Lemon and Raspberry in a rough list form.... It's always fun to think about all the hats you wear! Remind yourself you are more than a wife and mother. Remind yourself that your corporate persona is just a piece of you.

Today, make a list of a few things about yourself.

30lists  001

As I mentioned when showing y'all my book of lists, I'm using a 7x9" 3 ring binder, with the half-page minimal theme from the 30 Days of Lists pdf downloads

I've got 1 prompt per half-page (not back-to-back) so I have room to post a photo for some of the prompts. Not all prompts will have an image, and none of the images will have any more embellishment than what you see above.

Simple, easy. Minimal.

For me, the list content is the focus.

In case my handwriting is illegible (probably), the text reads:

Wife, sister, daughter, friend, reader, writer, photographer, blogger, Netflix subscriber, procrastinator, planner, crafter, scrapbooker, traveler, cook, English major

Even with adhering the photo, this list prompt took me far less than 10 minutes.


We can't wait to see what you guys list about yourself! Please head on over to the 30 Days of Lists Flickr group to see what other participants' have come up with and add your own list!

Awesome! I love this idea! I'm using my little calendar/planner to challenge myself to list as many things possible in a small space...takes way less than 10 minutes, not even 5! Looking forward to more prompts!

I just found your blog and am trying to catch up. This looks like a fun project, lists are my favorite thing to write. Everyone's looks great, since I'm not prepared yet will just write the first few lists down on scrap paper till I can get to store and by a journal for this. When I told my 12 & 14 daughters they said yes to doing one with me. Thanks for such a easy and fun book to make.

I decided that the blog is always handy, and if I do it in a book I might not have it when I need to write - so I went with posting on the blog instead. http://bigpinkcookie.com

I blogged about the list, as I plan to do with all the days, but my photos are on my flickr page, so I don't have to remember to post everyday. I also have my little 30 days of lists page. :D LOVE THIS!
