Plan with Me~ Happy Planner Memory Keeping March 2019 Week 2

Hello! All I can say is that sometimes life is a work in progress, my intentions of documenting memories each week in my “Life at a Glance” Happy Planner is quite behind, but it’s getting there. I bring you Week 2 of March 2019. In this video, I used very minimal supplies stickers, washi, cardstock and a magazine cutout. I love when a page is complete.

Thanks for sticking with me! Rebecca

April’s Traveler’s Notebook Everyday Journal Set Up

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.

Plan with Me Memory Keeping in my Happy Planner March Week One

Hello! I have had LOTS of question on what and how I choose photos and what to document from week to week in my “Life at a Glance” Happy Planner. I thought the easiest way to show my process is to document a whole month. Some weeks are filled with activities and others not so much. So here is week one of March! Happy Memory Keeping!

Happy Planner Memory Keeping March 2019 Introduction Page

Hello and Happy March! In this video I show you my process in creating the beginning “introduction” page for the month of March. This is the page that is at the beginning of each happy planner, I changed it up a bit to include “Right Now” information. Information such as what we are dreaming, making, pinning etc. I love adding this information at the beginning of each month, its fun to reflex on and see what were we doing and feeling!

Stay Tuned, I will be creating videos showing how I document the month of March! Thanks for Watching!

Everyday Journal Traveler’s Notebook Flip Through No.1

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.

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,

Rebecca
