Get Messy Lists // Week 1

April 8, 2016

One of my favourite feelings is how excited and refreshed I feel when a new season of Get Messy starts. It’s a new challenge, new ideas, and lot’s of fun with all my messy friends. The breaks in between are necessary for me, as I have so much going on most of the time that I use the breaks to catch up on other things.


This season is a mash up with the 30 Days of Lists crew, which is a whole new world to me. I’ve seen the listers on IG a lot, but it was never my “thing” since I struggle to stay with things for a whole 30 days (which is ironic considering I launched my own 30 day challenge.) 

I made myself a small journal this season, it’s about 4″x7″ and made of an old paper grocery bag.

It’s not huge, about 4″x7″. I’m really in love with the cover, and the string & button closure! I was pretty pleased with myself for thinking that up, haha.


My first pages are, in my opinion, ROUGH. I admittedly wasn’t super focused on these pages and developing any deep pages, so the end result it a bit sloppy and choppy. I’m hoping future pages will be more cohesive and just generally nicer looking. The texture of the paper bag is very rough, which I love, but also means that the over theme/feel of the journal is going to be pretty grungy – which I love!

Here are my first set of prompts for the season:

My writing became pretty well illegible on a lot of these pages, especially this one page. So, to help you out, the lessons I’ve learned are:
– share your feelings
– being right can suck
– opinons not needed

That’s a wrap on the first week! I’ll be sharing every Friday this season as part of the Get Messy Habit commitment. I sign up for it every season, and it is a major reason why I am always creating on a consistent basis.
