Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a little bit with you today about how I am currently storing my bible journaling supplies. One thing that’s really important to me is that everything easily transported from one place to another. I don’t always want to sit at my desk to work in my bible…sometimes I like to do it on a tray sitting up in bed or even outside the house at prayer retreats and other places like that! It’s therefore crucial for me to have a storage solution that’s small and light enough for me to carry. We can (and should) worship and pray anywhere and everywhere so why should journaling in our bibles be any different?!
A few months ago, I picked up a 12×12 clear plastic storage box from a local art shop. I love the size because some of my alphabet sticker sheets are 12 inches tall so it’s perfect to hold those along with everything else! The box also has a handle which makes it super easy for me to carry from place to place. The other great thing is that when the lid is shut, it provides a sturdy surface on which I can work if there isn’t a table or other suitable place for me to work on where I am!
In here I keep my bible, all my alphabet and phrase stickers, some die cuts small enough to fit in the margin of my bible, a pen, a pair of scissors, my bible highlighters, roller adhesive (not shown) and a set of alphabet stamps. (I own quite a few more sets of alphabet stamps which I keep stored with all my other stamp sets in an Ikea trolley next to my desk but I didn’t feel the need to carry those around with me everywhere.)
One day, I’d like to have an even smaller storage solution that I can use to take my bible and just a few crucial supplies with me in my handbag when it’s not practical to take my art box somewhere. I have visions of me busting out my journaling bible and supplies in the middle of Starbucks on a Saturday afternoon!
I hope you’ve found today’s post helpful and have given you some ideas about making your supplies portable so that you can worship God through your bible journaling ANYWHERE!
