Shelving Sketchnotes

This week, I’ve been putting together some shelving for additional storage on our 3rd floor. Some for books, some for file boxes. I’ve chronicled what I’ve built each day by messy-sketching it in my Techo. (I’m going to make “Mess Sketch” a thing. Then, I don’t have to internally bemoan how messy my sketches are.)

Not all journaling needs to be words. I often capture what was important to me that day with a quick sketch or cutting out some words from a magazine to paste in. One entry in my Techo is a single pressed leaf between two pages — the first fallen of the fall season from from a maple tree in our yard. That’s what I wanted to remember most from that day. That was enough.
