Creative “Journal Your Story”- Good Food, Good Friends, Good Times

Hello and Welcome back to the Creative “Journal Your Story” – Prompt 5 “Good Food, Good Friends, Good Times” Pizza was the Hello and Welcome back to the Creative “Journal Your Story” – Prompt 5 “Good Food, Good Friends, Good Times” Pizza was the food I picked for the topic and used an older photo from 1998 to capture a story of my friends and I. I remember so many times we all hung out and ordered pizza, watched movies and talked. Such good times. What good food, good friends and good times do you think of… go create a journal entry describing it.

Creative ‘Journal Your Story’ 3~ Just Around the Corner

Welcome back to Video 3 in the “Journal Your Story” Series~ Today’s word prompt is “Just Around the Corner” I had originally thought about journaling about a room in my house but then I went and ran errands on Saturday and saw all the Valentine’s out so I thought it would be fun to Create a fun and whimsical page in my journal. It was fun to use Valentine ephemera and to get creative! I hope you are inspired to create something that makes you happy and is ‘Just Around the Corner”

Creative Journal Your Story: 1~ Hello

The “Journal Your Story” Video Series is a way to kick off the New Year, with telling your story. If you are a memory keeper, scrapbooker, journaler, photographer, or social media queen… we all tell our story. I sometimes hear from others, “I don’t have an interesting life and don’t know what to write or journal about” Well, here are just a few questions you could write about:  What is your weather? What do you like to eat? What are your favorite clothes you like to wear? Are you reading anything? What are your dreams? This is your story… and adding all the fluff…washi, ribbon, ephemera, stickers.. is just a bonus! 

Inside this past CWR kit there was a set of journaling cards (from the Vicki Boutin Paper Line) with “word prompts” In this video series I plan to use those words as prompts. In case you were unable to purchase the kit, here are the words so everyone can play along!!

I hope this series brings you inspiration for journaling your story.

July 2020 Newsletter

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary~ Pablo Picasso

Hello and welcome to July’s Creative Hoots Newsletter! This month has just flown by, and has had some unexpected moments and twists and turns. I am working on keeping a positive attitude and working on ways to add delight, happiness and color to my world! Also, let me introduce you to the star of the upcoming July CWR stationery/ planner/ journal kit! Miss. Smarty Pants!! She is so excited to be part of the next kit… I’ll give you a hint…SCHOOL SUPPLIES!!!

Let’s talk journals vs. diaries. I have always thought the two were the same, but they are actually two different explanations for both. The description I found is a a diary is used to record daily activities and document events that happened. A journal is more of a personal documentation that contains feelings, emotions, problems and used to examine your life. Overall keeping a journal or diary is a permanent personal record and should be respected. I fill my journal with quotes, drawings, memorabilia, ephemera, photos… this to me is called creative junk journaling!

Brazos and I have started a new project, The Dream Cottage. I say NEW, but in reality she has actually had the “The Dream House” dollhouse for several years. We have finally decided to “get it completed”, although I really see this as an ever changing project. It was in need of a paint job. Now to start on the floors, windows, lighting, etc. We are transforming the little sunroom off the kitchen into the “Sparkly Dream Room” Oh yes imagination is ready to soar!

Speaking of Imagination…. I recently signed up for an ecourse with Mindy Lacefield. “Mystic Unicorn School” embracing my innerchild in a land of make believe and having creative fun with rainbows, unicorns and GLITTER!!! I painted and put together a junk journal using a personal size ring planner. So FUN!!

Upcoming this month, Crafty Destinations and Kelly Bangs Creative are hosting another FUN virtual class for Decorating your bulletin board! I will be teaching a workshop on adding a little something sparkly to your bulletin board! Class Is July 23-25, 2020 so there is still time to register.


There was sadness this past month. Mr Fluffers aka Sonny Bunny, our orange super fluffy kitty past away. He was with us for 10 years. We had this Sun tat I painted a bright yellow and drew a little orange cat to shine on him. He was so personable, and is missed so much!

Summer Days are upon us, today the heat index is going to be 106 degrees here in Central Texas…WAH! BUT as someone that always tries to look on the BRIGHT side I created a fun little art doodle page of all the things I love about summer days! I wanted you to enjoy it to, so I created a printable sheet. These would be fun to add to create with!

New Favorite Thing this month~ My Caboodle for traveling with my paints!

Just another reminder, the DIY painting video will be coming up this month! Keep an eye out on social media to the announcement! Thanks for stopping by!

XO, Rebecca
