Very fun idea for a smash book or journal. Could put calendar at beginning of month and record a little something about each day so if you skip a day in journaling you don't feel too bad. Or it's a good reminder of what happened that day.
Have to agree with the page -- art is my comfort . and a great prompt idea from heidi: what is art to you? take a page and write art is. Then finish the sentence again and again. choose one and make your own art is journal page.
