Hello! In this video I created a quick flip through of the traveler’s notebook I used to document my story with “A week in a Life” May 2019. Not familiar with A week in a life, please be sure to check out Ali Edward’s blog for more details. To sum up in a sentence, it’s taking a week in your life and documenting through words and photos. I have participated in this project for many years. It is one of my favorite. Thanks for watching and I hope you are inspired too!
Hello! In this video I show a flip through of my creative journal for the month’s of February and March 2019. I’m using journals from my shop featuring my artwork in a Cahier Size. Loving the process of journaling everyday!
Seriously love vintage handkerchiefs! When I saw these a couple of weekends ago in Warrenton at the Trade Days for one dollar, I have to pick them up! How sweet are the embroidered flowers? Perfect for scanning in and using as ephemera in your journal or planner! I wanted to share and I hope you enjoy them too!
Hello April! I can’t believe we are already four months into 2019! Time Flies no matter what! I am really enjoying journaling everyday. I still have to play catch up but I’m getting my stories down on paper. My process includes writing an event or story a day. In this video, I show you my process of how I set up my Cahier size Traveler’s Notebook for the Month. I use the Rebecca Hoot Everyday Journals and add a few different types of paper to make it a junk journal.
Thanks for watching! Rebecca
Don’t you just love vintage paper stationery? I love these ladies dressed in their long dresses, puffed sleeves and parasols. I have had these beauties for a while and recently found them again while I was unpacking, they were originally a set of boxed vintage cards. I think they will work perfectly for junk journals, and paper crafts. I wanted to share them as a free printable so you can enjoy them too!
Hello! As part of my goal for 2019, I wanted to start journaling again every single day. I use to be so diligent about keeping up with my journal but life gets busy and then several days go by, then weeks and before you know it months. I wanted to fill these journals with stories while adding pictures and ephemera. Here is a flip through of my first completed journal. I can’t express how excited I am and glad I have made this commitment.
Yay! I was so excited when y’all requested a “plan with me” video to show my process for Memory keeping in my Happy Planner! Or as I call it Life at a Glance! I call I hope this helps you in your journey in documenting. Also, this has spiked my imagination and thought how fun it would be to show different artsy ways to create and save memories! So stayed tuned for more videos!
Thanks for watching! Rebecca
I am so excited to be completed with the introduction to my One Little Word Journal. I use the prompts from Ali Edwards “One Little Word” class to guide me in setting the tone for the new year and what I plan to accomplish. This is one of my favorite projects. I start out with writing about the past year and setting goals for the new year. This includes my creative business, my family, my home and just different aspects of my life. I also incorporate my One Little Word into the goals I want to set for myself for the upcoming year. This process sometimes takes a while but it’s worth it because at the end of the year, I will go back and reference and look at where I have come or what didn’t quite work out the way I expected. In this video, I show you a flip through of my SHINE journal. I plan to use this for the monthly prompts and just when I need to journal about my word. I used a composition notebook and in the video you will see how I construct and plan to use it. Thanks for watching! Rebecca
If you love Alice and all the whimsy characters she meets along the way on her adventure you will love to adorn your planner and journal with this journal set. From the Alice print on the Traveler’s Notebook ,the stickers and journal cards this journal set will have you giddy for sure! The set is guaranteed to put you in the mood for tea and possibly have you believing in as many as six impossible things before breakfast! Doesn’t that sound fun for the imagination! For this kit I created additional art with the characters Queen of Hearts, Cheshire Cat, The Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit. They were made into stickers and journal cards.
The journal sets come with a choice of the entire kit or your can purchase each separately! I hope you are inspired to create something wonderful!
February is right around the corner with all it’s pinks, reds, hearts and of course chocolate. Growing up I LOVED February for just this reason… Valentines Day. I can still see a visual of me sitting on the bus with my box of valentines ready to be handed out to my classmates. I also remember making valentine boxes out of shoeboxes and paper plates and hang for all your friends to fill with cards. Then I became a teenager and a young adult and experienced having a NON-romantic boyfriend during Valentines and I remember breaking up with this boyfriend because he did absolutely NOTHING for this special date meant for LOVE. I also remember working in an office environment feeling less love because everyone else in the office received a large bouquet of flowers and my desk sat blah with NO flowers, chocolate or love notes. Now that I’m older and wiser (wink, wink) I do not put so much emphases on receiving Valentines to make me feel important or loved. Now, I enjoy the hearts and all the pinks and reds for the fun and LOVE of it all. So in the midst of the season to spread love I wanted to share one of my girls “Love Letters” with you. Print on sticker sheet or cardstock and cut! ENJOY!! Happy February! Happy Hearts and Happy Valentines Day! ~ Rebecca Hoot
