Hello! I have missed you, it was a whirlwind month of June! I had the most amazing trip to DC and NY and took A LOT of photos…so many that I need a new journal! I have been watching different ways to create bigger journals using signatures. I wanted to keep the notebook I had created originally for the trip. Here is an interesting video of that process. Book binding idea came from Johanna’s video here

Hello and Welcome to a Video Series embracing the most wonderful time of the year~ AUTUMN! Yes that is exactly how I feel! This is my most favorite season. I wanted to embrace this time of the year with a workshop. Today I am kicking off the Autumn Bliss series with a video of me painting the cover to a Traveler’s notebook I am planning to use for the workshop. I wanted a place to house my Autumn Bliss notebook and the notebook I created for Mindy Lacefield’s “Merry and Fright” workshop. Here is an overview of what to expect from this workshop, over the next 10 days we will be making lists. Below you will find a printable of prompts to use to make your list. We can connect with one another through Instagram by using hashtag #cwrautumnbliss to show us your lists. On September 18, 2021 the video series will start. There will be a daily blog post and an email out with the videos. There is not a special place to sign up to receive the emails, if you have signed up to receive general notifications through my website. I have included the itinerary and list prompts below. I am thrilled you are coming along and hope you get all the BLISS for autumn! Be sure to check out the shop for Autumn Bliss Creative kits.

Hello and welcome to a fun little Inner Child project of making a DIY Valentine box. This box is to hold the cards I hop to receive in the Rebecca Hoot Valentin Card SWAP! Who remembers their Valentine box? I remember we created one similar to the one I’m going to show you in elementary school! So fun! Hope you are inspired to create something fun while embracing your inner child!
Welcome back to Video 2 in the Journal Your Story Series! The prompt is ” Passionately Curious” and I decided to journal about my Great Aunt. She was an amazing person, so full of adventure, love and wisdom. She passed at age 75, when I was 10 years old but I have such a vivid and fond memories of her. How I wish I could sit and talk with her again. I am passionately curious about her life as a young adult and the whens and hows of her life. She loved her parents so much, but I know there were times she lived away from them. I also used this prompt as a way to document my journey with her, what she meant to me and conversations and experiences I can remember. I have an album full of pictures and memories, so I decided to use this one to document.
So what are you passionately curious about? Is it family, other counties, music, art… so many possibilities! I hope you are inspired to create in your journal! Here is a video of my process.
Thanks for watching!
