Nostalgic Summer Memories~ Video 2: Documenting using Sight

Hello and welcome back to Nostalgic Summer memories using your senses. Today’s video is about Documenting using the sense Sight. I have created a fold out map of a place we use to go as a kid for picnics, camping and Sunday fun. It was fun remembering all the little things, like the swimming hole and large picnic table for all the family. Hope you are inspired to create using your sense of Sight.

Nostalgic Summer Memories Video No.1~Creative Station

Yay! Hello and welcome to Documenting our Summer Nostalgic memories Video series! This series will run for seven days and each day will give examples of how to document using your senses! Sight, Hearing, Smell Taste and Touch. The idea of this project came to me while digging through an old box of photos. This project can be a combination of past, present and future summers. It can be used to document summers when you were a kid, summers with your kids or grandkids, or just random memories of summer’s past. I love the idea of documenting about your favorite nostalgic movies, food, or events that you want to remember. Endless possibilities! In this video, I will be showing you my journal I plan to use and my “Creative Station” with all the things I plan to document with. A free printable is located on the blog, posted on Sunday, June 7th. . Thanks for watching and I will “see” you tomorrow when we will be talking about sight!

Wash Day Printable

A few weeks ago I took a photo of these adorable handmade vintage Barbie Doll dresses I picked up at Trade Days in Warrenton, Texas a while back. They are so sweet with their hand stitched hems. I thought they would make an adorable banner, gift tags or journal ephemera. I definitely wanted to share with you, so I painted a wash tub and rubber ducks and made a WASH DAY printable. Ta Da! Now go hang your troubles out to dry!

Please tag me in your projects, i would love to see how you are using these adorable dresses!

June 2020 Newsletter

Live in the Sunshine, swim in the sea, drink in the wild air~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello and welcome to the vert first “Creative Hoots” Newsletter! I am so excited about starting a Inspiring, Creative, and Fun publication. My thought process is to share projects and ideas I am working on; tips and tricks; what is inspiring me and offer printables for you to enjoy too! I feel this newsletter will be continuously evolving and hope you enjoy the ride with me!

Here we are in June with all the feelings of summer along with Father’s Day and my birthday month! Here in Texas, we have already had almost temperatures in the 90’s. The beginning of summer is all grins and carefree days but as we approach the end of July it becomes unbearably hot, dry and just plain miserable and I’m waiting for cooler days.

I recently joined a art club from Tricia Robinson called the God Made Girl Club and I am loving it. She talked about giving yourself permission to be YOU! So I have decided it is time to add color EVERYWHERE! Projects I haven’t painted, I’m going to paint and things I have been too ‘scared’ to paint, I’m going to paint. I’m so excited to have my colorful light shine.

My Permission Slip

First Colorful project I have completed is adding color to the front porch, I purchased these fun pin wheels from Hobby Lobby. Painted the pots with Ocean Blue Chalk Paint and spray painted the white river rocks, pink, yellow and blue.

Painted pots with Pinwheels!

I’m in progress of finishing up this train case painted in candy colors. I’ll be having a video series soon on steps on how to paint your own.

Hand Painted Train Case

Summertime Nostalgia~ New Video Series will be coming this month. Starting on June 8-June 14, 2020. I think being at home so much over this quarantine time and finding a box full of childhood photos has made me remember how fun and carefree past Summers were. Here is the schedule:
