Keeping Company :: March Link-Up

Before I get to the March link-up, I want to mention a couple more entries from last month's collection that I found really inspiring. Alongside February's topic of commonplace books, I asked about children's commonplace keeping.  Both Lisa and Carol posted peeks into their older children's commonplace books.  If you have students you're encouraging in self-chosen copywork, take a look!

And I also want to share a few lovely photos from over on Instagram:

:: For bloggers: You should see the linky below.  Click on the "Add my link" button, and it will prompt you to include the information for your post.  Once you submit it, your link will be added to the list, and others will be able to click over and read what you have shared.

:: For Instagrammers: Tag related photos with #KeepingCompanyCM to join the link-up.  (You can also add individual Instagram photos via the linky if you prefer.)


:: Remember to link to a specific post and not to the homepage of your blog.  

:: Posts on private blogs obviously can't be included.

:: Any posts about CM-style Keeping are welcome!  The prompt is optional.  Your post can be as simple as a photo of your commonplace book!  And please don't feel like you have to be an expert.  We are all looking to grow in these habits together. :)

:: Feel free to add more than one post.  The link-up will be open for a month, so you can come back and add more if you are so inclined.

:: You can grab the button over there on the sidebar if you'd like to add it to your post or site.

Looking forward to seeing what you all are up to.  And once again, thank you for sharing! 


  1. I got my oldest daughter her first Commonplace, Celeste! She has added something to it too of her own volition. I just am loving mine that I've been finally making a habit of using. Can you imagine if I had started at her age? What a wealth of things that are made one's "own" through them!!! :D Exciting stuff, I tell ya! :D

    1. How fun! And isn't that true, the formative influence a commonplace can have on the older child? Thinking back on my own childhood/teens, I wish I had spent time keeping a commonplace rather than an angst-filled journal. I think it would have been pages much better spent. ;)

    2. Ha! I had my own share of angst-filled journals. You're doing a terrific service with the link up, Celeste. Thanks for being so organised & intentional with this. X

    3. Glad to know I'm not the only one! ;) Thank you, Carol!

    4. Oh my yes, it would have been so much better to be commonplacing back then!! I'm so proud of myself, I actually managed to do it this month. :-) It only took until March... thanks for doing this, Celeste!

    5. So happy to have you join us this month, Amber! :)
