Hello August!! I know I haven’t sent out a newsletter the last two moths! It has been a creative whirlwind, which is not a bad thing! I wanted to pop in and say Hello and share some of the upcoming excitement! Fall is my most FAVORITE TIME of the year so my creative juices really start to flow! First of all, the next CWR Journal kit is all about Sunflowers and Scarecrows! The star of the kit is Scary Perry! Isn’t he the cutest scarecrow ever?? He is a bit too cute to scare, don’t you think??
For the CWR Sticker Club, I was on the fence about which Autumn Girl I wanted to include, but decided on “Autumn is Calling” since the stickers will be released just prior to the first day of autumn…because I already hear Autumn calling. Do You?
Speaking of Autumn, I will be creating a week long workshop series called “Blissful Autumn” starting September 18-25, 2021. Yes! I had to have the First Day of Autumn in there!! This will be videos, printables and overall creative fun! Keep an eye out on Instagram and Facebook for more information! BUT before we go full throttle into autumn, I know there is still the month of August, which means one more month of summer. I have scanned in our Paperdoll friend Amy’s summer wardrobe for you to print and out play with! See below for the files. Have a great August! XO, Rebecca
December Quote: For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when it’s mighty founder was a child himself.~ Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol”
Hello December and Hello the most wonderful time of the year to be a kid again!! First things first… The next CWR kit will be available December 15th and the theme is “Journal Your Story” (Insert Happy Dance) Yes I think documenting the everyday…what you see, smell, taste, hear is not only important documentation but good for the soul! Here is the pair that will be the theme for the kit…
Now, let’s talk about an exciting new project I have had on my To Do list for a very long time….a 4 x 6 sticker book. This is using one of the inexpensive photo albums that you can pick up at Walmart and I’m sure at other stores. This little book will be in the December CWR kit! I have made a fun cover and a NEW sticker size to fit into this cute little sticker book:
Starting this month I will have a new sticker size in the CWR kit and when you purchase stickers alone. I plan to change all the stickers to this size. I still have the 7 x 3 size available in my shop BUT I am planning on having a bundle sticker sale to move those out and make room for the new size! Be sure to check mid- December for that sale.
Starting today, I am so excited to kick off my December Daily Journal! As I mentioned in the November newsletter I will be following Doodle prompts following #DOLLYSDOODLECHALLENGE and PHOTO PROMPTS (see below)
I am also going to be using my December Journal as just that..my journal for the month. In the past, I would typically used it as more of a memory book for the kids or like a scrapbook. As life changes and the kids grow older, I am finding different things to write and document. So it will be my December Daily and my day to day documentation that I would typically do in a separate journal. ANNNDDDD…. speaking of journals..I have FINALLY made my decision on the journals I plan to use for 2021. A basic Composition book…but you know it won’t be basic. I still plan to add all the things to JUNK it up! A video will be coming soon!
Looking ahead into next year, I am going to be hosting an in person CAMP WONDERLAND. The overnight spots are full, but we still have DAY CAMP space open. This will include SATURDAY all day full of creating, lunch and FUN! There is hotels near by and Air BNB’s if you need a place to stay. Junk Gypsy is right down the road! to Sign up check out Craft Destinations website.
Well you guys, I hope you can make this time of the year as MAGICAL as can be! To help you with this, I have a fun PRINTABLE for you.. My Christmas Tree Girls as Tags. Print out, cut and add fun ribbon or tulle. I plan on using these cuties for neighbor gifts I plan to give.
November Quote: I am Grateful for what I am and have. My Thanksgiving is perpetual.
Hello November! Wow this season has just been zooming by..I’m afraid the upcoming months will be bittersweet. Here we are in the most wonderful time of the year but still dealing with the Covid Virus. One of my favorite things about this time of the year is getting together with family for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, this year we have decided to not gather for Thanksgiving. I would rather have many more holidays with my parents and by pass this one year. Although, I miss them dearly! So wish me LUCK in preparing a DINNER for just us which will include turkey, trimmings and home made rolls.
Now on a more positive note, I am so looking forward to the Creative Christmas Video Series! It will start Saturday, November 7th! Print the schedule and supply list here:
The CWR (Create with Rebecca) Kit was switched up in October. I had originally had “Hark” scheduled but after a few emails (I appreciate everyone’s feedback) I switched the kit to “Baking up Joy” and “Hark” will not be released this month on November 8th.
I have began my December Daily Journal and will be creating a blog post and You Tube video to show you the content. I plan to document a little differently this year. I plan to add daily doodles and photos following these list of prompts. The December Daily is one of my FAVORITE projects!
Shop Update: New Stickers, prints and postcards are coming to the shop! Be sure to watch Instagram and Facebook for updates!
I wanted to offer a printable for November, so I created a page of words and a few drawings that can be cut out and used in your journals or notebooks!
