Connecting the Dots

I am working on a short art course that I will be teaching. This made me ask myself what it is about making stuff I enjoy the most and how my creative activities are described the best. My art (or the things I make) for me is a product of living a creative live. Of being playfull, of being conscious of the world and beauty around me and the constant wish to not just live life, but to design life. Even better than an end-product for me are my little books of notes, drawings, quotes & souvenirs I've been keeping since I was a child. A few months ago I discovered there is not only a name  for the thing I've been doing so long,  but that there is even a whole (very inspiring) scene out there! And -as always when you discover something- I can't believe I never heard of it before. I am talking about art journaling, also described as creative of visual journaling. I feel like this is the connecting the dots that have been floating through my mind for some time now. A very good feeling :) What about you? Do you do any kind of creative journaling?
