DIY~ Turnng a Passport holder into a Traveler’s Notebook

Hello! In this video I show you how I turn a Passport Holder into a Pocket Size Traveler’s Notebook. To warn you ahead of time, there is quit a bit of banging with the tools so prepare to turn down the sound! LOL! Hope you are inspired to create one yourself if you come across a Passport holder! 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!

I hope you are inspired to create, play and fun in your journal!

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!!

Summer Journaling Week 3~ Create A Vision

Welcome back to my summer journaling series! This week I’m talking about creating a vision by making a bucket list of activities and adding the items to a Bucket O Fun to manifest the things you want to do on your bucket list. This summer my family will be having a staycation which means we will be staying local and finding activities to fill our summer days. I hope you are inspired to make a list and create a bit of fun this summer if your going on a vacation or just staying around the house.

Summer Journaling~ Week One Choosing your Journal

 

Hello! Hope everyone had a great Sunday and Mother’s Day! Here is central Texas we already have had extremely warm days and they will not stop now through October. Usually by the time mid-July through early September we are indoors in the air conditioning trying not to melt. However, I love welcoming summer through journaling! It’s a time for family, relaxing, taking vacations and really getting memories on paper. This year we are planning more staycations and looking to visit different museums, festivals and events close to home. I’m really looking forward to exploring and having new adventures. Similar to what I created at Christmas, I wanted to create a mini video series about Summer Journaling. So welcome to the first video in the Summer Journaling video series . I thought it would be fun to share some of my techniques and maybe inspire you. This series will include 6 videos to be posted on Sunday evenings, CST. In this video, I talk about past scrapbooks and journals I have used and what I plan to use this year. Let me know if you have any questions or I would love to hear how you are planning and documenting your summer!

Thanks for stopping by!

Journal Supplies on the Go

Hello! It’s been a while since I posted a video mainly due to being sick almost the whole month of January and February is just flying by! I recently spent the weekend at my parents hours to celebrate their 50th Anniversary and posted a photo of my journal supplies on instagram. There was a request to create a video to show the supplies I travel with, believe me when I tell you I use to bring the kitchen sink! I have learned to minimize especially for trips that I may or may not get a chance to be creative. If I was to go on a crafting weekend, I probably would still carry the kitchen sink lol!
