Hello! it’s final here!!! Welcome to the Junk Journal Your Christmas Series. This is the first of several videos where I am showing you how I plan to Junk Journal my Christmas by using a Golden Book. This doesn’t mean you need to use a Golden Book, you can use a traveler’s notebook, scrapbook or any form of documentation. I plan to show you how I will be dolling up my journal while I craft my Christmas Story. In this first video I am constructing a Junk Journal using a Golden Book and discussing what items to gather and where you can purchase these items. See below for some of the places mentioned:

Can’t you hear it? Autumn is calling!! The days will be getting shorter, the leaves will start to change colors, a cool crisp breeze will be in the air. I can’t wait to wear my favorite outfit of tights and my burgundy corduroy dress while drinking a pumpkin spice latte. Yes this is me, I love all things seasonal. I won’t speak about the weather hear in Texas, it’s still in the 90’s, instead I’m going to continue to dream and listen because Autumn is calling! Who is ready to adorn their planner, journal or memory book with all things red, yellow and orange!? This kit is created around a mixed media whimsical autumnal girl by Rebecca Hoot. Each item is carefully selected and assembled to match a perfect little kit just for you or to send to a dear friend to enjoy! Kits are now available in the shop!

Welcome back to the final video of the Summer Journaling Series! My first thought was to create a video demonstrating how to make journal cards with different themes and then I thought why don’t I just play!? In this video I’m just playing with different ways I love to personalize my journal. I hope you are inspired to create, play and fun in your journal!
Hello! Welcome back for some more summer inspiration! In this video I create a two junk journals and set up my Happy Clouds Traveler’s Notebook. Using one notebook for fitness tracking and the other for everyday journaling. I also show how I add pockets using a baseball card sheet protector.
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!
Hello! I’m back with a process video of how I created a quick paint doodle to the cover of the Traveler’s Notebook insert I’m using to document a Week in A life. Also, in the video I also talk about how I plan to document and hope to post on IG and Facebook my daily documentations.
Hello! It’s been a while since I posted a video, I’ve been so caught up in life changes, not necessarily a bad thing, but I’ll elaborate more on that later! Next month Ali Edwards is hosting another “Week in a Life” documentation and I want to prepare my journal so that I am ready!! I mention in the video a site to find the log sheets and more about ‘A week in a Life” here is Ali Edwards site and here is the blog that has the link the log sheets. I have been following along with Ali since 2011 and I absolutely love this project. I hope you are inspired to document your week and would love to see how you plan too. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in my next video!
Hello! One of my goals for the New Year is to start blogging, I use to blog ALOT about 3-4 years ago and I really miss it. I loved posting craft projects, places I’ve visited and blogging is where I discovered my love for creating art canvases. Today I want to talk about how I plan to document / scrapbook the everyday using a large Happy Planner. I absolutely LOVE scrapbooking and document life using pictures, papers, paint and all the fun creative media. I have used the concept from Project Life to take a photo a day and sometimes it happens and sometimes not, but I’m thrilled to have January complete. Here are the layout pages:
January Introduction Page
What’s fun about the Happy Planner is it has a place for important dates, plans, and current events or what is currently happening at the beginning of each month.
Week One~ January 1-7
Surprisingly ,I didn’t take as many photos this week, I think is was due to the fact I started a new job which requires a hour commute to and from Austin and having symptoms from CEDAR fever! UGH!
Week Two~ January 8-14
We celebrated my daughter Brazos’ birthday this week and quite possibly we celebrated the entire week! This week was the start of Girl Scout Cookie Season and starting and finishing a Science Fair Project.
Week Three~ January 15-21
This was such a cold week, I used paper snowflakes punched out from a Daphne’s Diary Magazine and added twine with a sparkle snowflake to add a bit of dimension. Love that I took lots of photos this week!
Week Four~ January 22-28
This was the week I had the flu..wah! It was awful! However, my sister was looking through old photo slides for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary and she sent me all these fun photos from when we were kids, so I added them into this weekly layout.
That’s a wrap for January. I hope to film a process video soon for documenting in my Happy Planner, so stay tuned!
