I love my journal, it's like my life story. I started with mine when I was at college, my first journal lasted me over a year. And then it was about another year before I decided to pick up a new one. In the past two years I've gone through 6, and I'm just beginning my 7th. I keep my journals because my memory is bad and I have mental health problems and I find it a good way of releasing or expressing myself. 

How many do you have?  Why do you keep Art journals?
