if a picture's worth 1,000 words...

ok, i'll confess. i am not a huge journaler. i remember things visually and so when i lay out my scrapbook pages they are chuck full of photos, colors, textures and blingage. and then maybe a comment written very small, tucked under a photo.

my crop friends always seem to have so much to say on their pages. they write a full 4x6 card full of beautiful script, or nifty printing. i'm always amazed. how do they know what to say? how do they write so much without repeating?

i always catch myself trying to "fill out" my journaling, and it ends up sounding like the narration in one of those boring high school science movies. "here are the preschoolers in their native habitat, eating sugar-based treats and engaging in vocalizing..." bleck!

so gypsies, here is the question of the day. if a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is good journaling worth?
