Be Inspired in 2023: Start Journaling!

Be Inspired in 2023: Start Journaling!


The start of a new calendar year is often seen as the perfect time to reflect on our personal and professional journeys and set intentions or resolutions for the coming months.  The Library is a fabulous place to start when looking for resolution resources!  In this mini blog series, we’ll highlight some resolution specific library resources to help you as you work towards your 2023 goals.


This week, we are highlighting a digital vault of creative video classes that could help inspire you if you resolved to start journaling this year!

Journaling is a great way to reflect on the happenings of the day, channel your thoughts and feelings, or just to keep track of something in particular.  There are many different types of journaling – art journaling, bullet journaling, daily diary type journaling to name a few.


CreativeBug is a digital resource providing unlimited online access to thousands of arts and crafts videos that never expire so you can stop and start projects at your very own pace.  CreativeBug is accessible for free with your HMMPL library card!  Here you’ll find video classes teaching you bullet journaling layouts, meditative journaling, creating your own jazzed up journal, and more.  Supplies needed for each class are listed, reviews of the class, as well as a brief synopsis of what the class is all about.
