One Little Word~ Shine Journal Flip-Through

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

January’s “Let’s Stay Home” CWR Kit

January “Let’s Stay Home” CWR Stationery/ Planner/ Journal Kit

Hello January and Happy New Year! This is the time of the year that I’m ready look back at the past year and see what has been accomplished along with setting goals for the New Year. A time for organization and getting things back to the norm after the last few months of holiday fun! I like to think of the month of January as a recuperation month, to stay home, take deep breaths and make plans for the upcoming year. Personally, for me this includes getting those boxes unpacked that have been sitting in the garage for 6 months! Yikes!  I loved creating for this kit, so happy to include a set of diecuts of hand painted houses using watercolor and acrylic paint.

This kit was so fun to put together, I wanted it to have all the feels of staying home. Each item was carefully selected and assembled to match a perfect little kit just for you or to send to a dear friend to enjoy!

Another exciting addition to this kit is the option to be able to purchase the print of the art. There are two sizes available, a 8 x 10 or 5 x 7!

Be sure to check out my shop for details and to purchase one!

XO,

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!!

Thanks for watching,

Rebecca
