April 2021 Newsletter

Hello April! Times seems to be flying by and I hope you are having FUN! March came and went in a whirlwind and here we are approaching another busy month. I am in full swing in preparing for CAMP WONDERLAND! My daughter has to reign me in because as a creative person my mind is always thinking of something new to create. I need to focus on getting my to do list done first. I can’t help it, I’m a creative person and want to do all the things!! First up, I created a quick video to show my April Introduction page in my creative journal. Taking a different approach and narrowing down it down to two pages instead of four..

So lets talk what is in store for April in the CWR World! Let me introduce you to the star of the Upcoming CWR Journal Kit… She has a green thumb and she all things green and leafy bring her joy… Plant Lady!

Taking a leap out of the atrium and into the magical forest, the CWR Sticker club stickers are all about a Magical Forest where there is fairies, bears, deer and foxes… all in party hats..oh my!

Also for the month of April, I will be participating in Ali Edward’s photo adventure: This starts on Monday, April 5th. I did this last year and it will be something I will add to my daily journal.

And a Virtual Stamping Good Time with Craft Destinations and Kelly Bangs Creative

I will also be joining many of my friends and family in the 100 Days of Prayer. My book should be arriving today and I plan to purchase Kelly Bang’s Printables when they become available on April 5, 2021. It’s going to be a busy beginning of the month!

Before I close, I always like to share something with you so you can get creative. I have used this adorable Paper Doll in my journals and have asked to share the image, so here you go! I have included lots of Spring outfits for her to wear too!

Closing with my current Favorite Thing is this zipper Pouch from Natural Life products. This quote spoke to me!

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a super sparkly month!

February / March 2021 Creative Journal Flip Through

So excited to have a flip though of one of the journals I have completed for 2021. This journal covers the month of February and the first of March. I am really LOVING using the altered composition book as my journal. It gives me LOTS of space to add stickers, ephemera and of course journaling.

I hope you are inspired and enjoy the glimpse in my journals! Thanks for watching.

March 2021 Newsletter

Hello March! Hello Spring! Hello More Fun! Let’s see, what is happening this month: A Spring Tea with the Bees Knee’s Banner; Ms. Imagination CWR kit; Camp Wonderland Planning; Setting Goals; and Dollhouse Dreams.

This coming Saturday, March 6, 2021 at 2pm CST. I will be having a live virtual Tea Party. I had created a poll asking if you would prefer a live tea through Instagram or a Zoom meeting. The final answer was really 50/50. This month I will be having another virtual through Instagram BUT have made plans to do a zoom meeting in the upcoming months. YES… I’m thinking this would be something fun to do each month. This month we will be creating a “Bees Knees Banner”, I plan on printing mine at 50% so I can add a banner into my journal. Here is the free printable:

The First of every month is the introduction of the CWR Journal Kit. This months’s kit is all about rainbows, bunnies and your imagination! Let me introduce the star of the kit “Ms. Imagination” This girl came from this fun little art piece.

Be sure to mark you calendar, for March 15th at 7:00 am CST for the release of the “Ms. Imagination” CWR Kit Release.

This past weekend we had a Girl’s weekend with my mom, sister and Brazos and we are FULL throttle planning out Camp Wonderland! My friend Paula over at Crafty Destinations is working out all the details while I get to plan all the creative FUN! I believe there are two more Daytime Spots available.

As I was working in my journal this last month I realized I haven’t written down monthly goals in almost a year. I think it started with the Pandemic. I use to set yearly goals and break them down into monthly goals. I realized I had goals and dreams in my head but actually haven’t written them down or the steps to make them happen! So I will be working on goal setting this month. Stay tuned for more ideas and thoughts on how I like to make this a visual activity.

One of the goals I am working on is our Dream Cottage Dollhouse. I think the best way to achieve decorating it is to start with one room. So it’s the Bathroom. I will be having a more detailed blog post on the renovation of Dream Cottage, but yes starting small in one space helps me wrap my head around making a decision for each room.

And Last but most definitely not least, I haven’t been sharing my Favorite Things in my Newsletter. I recently just purchased Modge Podge Sparkle and I have to say… it’s my new favorite journaling and art supply!

Thanks for stopping in and hope you have a FABULOUS March!!

XO, Rebecca

Creative Journal: Valentine Collage Page and 50 Random Facts about Me

Hello! I recently watched a video on You Tube from my creative friend, Journal with Dolly, and she did a 50 Facts about Me. I really enjoyed learning about her and thought it would be fun to create a video as well. I literally sat down and just wrote out 50 random facts. I created a video creating a collage in my journal using some of the Valentine cards and ephemera I received it the mail. I enjoyed the carefree process, hope you guys enjoy it too!

Thanks for Watching! Rebecca

February 2021 Newsletter

February Quote: Steady as a Clock, Busy as a Bee, and cheerful as a cricket~ Martha Washington

Hello and Welcome to the Creative Hoot’s February Newsletter! Welcoming this month of LOVE with open arms, I know many are still suffering and I continue to pray for my family, neighbors, and friends all over the world. In the meantime, I will look for the fairies and dream of brighter days ahead.

This past month was filled with a snow, yes snow, which is very rare in my part of Texas, we enjoyed it so much. I loved watching it come down while staying cozy inside the house.

Brazos made a teeny tiny little snowman and took moments to enjoy every last minute until darkness came. We knew by morning it would all be melted away.

Also, this past month we begin our Valentine celebration! Last month I coordinated a Valentine Card Swap. More to come on that… I plan to write a more detailed blog post on the fun we are having with our inner child and bring back all the feels of a Valentine Party! Just a little sneak Peek of the “Inner Child Valentine Box” I made. I have a video on how it was created. You can find it here.

Looking ahead, I am so excited for the next CWR Journal Kit! If you love cute little bees, then this kit will be for you! Introducing the star of the kit, “Ms. Bee” My sister sent me the meaning behind the name “Bee” it means “she who brings happiness” I think this little sweetheart will bring lots of happiness to your heart! As I say with every kit, but I truly mean it… this one was so fun to put together!!

The February BBG (Big Brave Girl) Stickers are available now in the shop, I really loved using the numbers and days of the week in my Journaling.

The Sticker Club is in Full Swing as well! I have had so much fun putting the Welcoming kits together and sending them out! If you are interested in becoming a member, I now have a “purchase’ that can be made for the next month. You will receive the Welcome Kit and that month’s stickers. Then I will automatically bill through Paypal. Please feel free to contact me with questions.

Looking forward to a month of hearts, well and to be honest I live the whole year with hearts and stars, but this is a bonus month! I leave you with a fun little coloring page, print her out, color and use in your journal or on cards. I’ll be creating a video on Instagram and Facebook to show you the medium I use. Happy Coloring!

Happy February Wishes, Rebecca
