September “Autumn is Calling” CWR Kit

Can’t you hear it? Autumn is calling!! The days will be getting shorter, the leaves will start to change colors, a cool crisp breeze will be in the air. I can’t wait to wear my favorite outfit of tights and my burgundy corduroy dress while drinking a pumpkin spice latte. Yes this is me, I love all things seasonal. I won’t speak about the weather hear in Texas, it’s still in the 90’s, instead I’m going to continue to dream and listen because Autumn is calling!  Who is ready to adorn their planner, journal or memory book with all things red, yellow and orange!? This kit is created around a mixed media whimsical autumnal girl by Rebecca Hoot. Each item is carefully selected and assembled to match a perfect little kit just for you or to send to a dear friend to enjoy! Kits are now available in the shop!

Happy Autumn!

Published as a Trail Blazer

Me? Published! Wow I was so excited and thrilled to be even considered. My creative pen guru, Angel with PenGems suggested that I be interviewed for the publication out of Dallas, Texas called the Voyage Dallas Trail Blazers. I was sent a questionnaire with questions to answer about myself and my business along with any advice that I would give to anyone coming into business as a creative entrepreneur.

So first up, I had to know the meaning of a Trail Blazer, so this is what googled told me a person “who makes a new track through wild country, a pioneer, an innovator.” Now I know I’m not the first person to go on this journey, but I am the only one that is going on MY journey. I have to say in this stage of my adventure the number one thing I tell myself over and over is to NEVER EVER give-up. I took on this business motto back in 2012 when I decided to start my small business. Throughout my life I had started so many creative outlets, I took floral design, I started a handmade business right after my son was born, and I created different crafts and sold them to friends. All these times I just quit when it became too hard or I didn’t really know the next step. In 2011, I discovered blogs and it opened my eyes widely to so many creative types and finding my tribe. This is when my dreams began to take a direction, I believed that it is possible to do what you are supposed to be doing, in my case it’s being an artist, and make a living. Not as a starving artist but as a creative entrepreneur. Using my creativity to inspire others to create and have a whole lot of fun in the process.

I ordered a printed copy of the article to put on my art studio wall to remind myself to keep moving forward, create the life you want!

Happy Trails,

I did look online and there are other eyelet punches that can be purchased for the hard to reach spaces like the middle of the notebook, check the sewing area of your craft store too!

Summer Journaling Week 5~ Prepping Journal Pages

Hello and welcome to week 5 in my Summer Journaling series! In this video I show you how I prep journal pages for future journaling.  How many of us who paint our journal pages have to wait for the paint to dry? If your like me I am so easily distracted I find it better to add watercolor to pages before I am ready to journal so when I am ready, I have painted pages already. Does that makes sense? In this video I show you what I do. I hope you are inspired to be creative today!!
