Collage Gratitude Journal Video and Life Updates

I hope this doesn’t seem redundant, but yes I have made another video.

IMG_4960It’s a process video of this Collage Gratitude journal, you can see the video here.

Announcing videos seems to be only activity on this blog of late, but I hope to change that up a bit some time soon with some shoppe news along with the occasional life updates.

I’m changing directions slightly on ‘this here blog’ because I share so many photos of my work on other social media, it felt as though I was repeating myself all the time, and I want the content here to be a little different.

Most of what I have been spending my time on lately is catching up on housework and decorating.

IMG_4947This set of drawers and shelf had been sitting naked for almost 20 years, I painted them over the weekend. It feels fantastic to finally get this done!

I’ve been spending the past few weeks going from room to room, making notes of what needs to be cleaned up, finished up, or gotten rid of. So, art making and my shoppe have been knocked down the priority list somewhat.  My house is really starting to look good, and it feels great! Having a laundry list of To Do’s in the back of my mind all the time was cluttering up my brain, and stifling my creativity.

There are still a few more pieces of furniture to paint, a few sewing and crochet projects to finish up, and some decluttering to do, but the more I do the less daunting it all seems.

I hope you don’t mind my switching things up around here. This is where I hope to post pix of my sewing and crochet projects, decorating, and shoppe updates, and keep most the art journaling photos on IG, YouTube, and Facebook. Just give me a follow if you want to see them.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks again for the visit,

Have a great day,

  1. great post and great video Patty! i gave it a thumbs up-but for some reason (unknown to me) i have technical issues leaving comments/replies when it comes to you tube.(something to do with my settings i think) but haven’t been able to figure it out, so will tell you here how much fun it is to watch your process, see your supplies and organization ideas. that tote with all the goodies is…..YUM! and i noticed a cute little ‘something’ you have your postage stamps in….that looks very cool! did you make that?

    your painted drawers/shelf look adorable-love the alarm clock. it makes sense to not want to repeat your posting of pictures, etc to numerous places. i think it’s good to designate your blog for specific things, and have other social media locations for other stuff. whatever works best for you. you end the post by saying “thanks for the visit” – it really does feel like that-a visit! not all blogs are like that, a lot are like reading an article in a magazine ya know? but your blog really is like a visit. it makes me feel like, “i just dropped in to see what your up to” 😉 thanks for sharing your ideas and inspiration patty. i always look forward to getting to visit when i see a new post from you! 🙂


    1. Thank you Jenny! I always feel so blessed that lovely people like you take the time to read what I have to say! Thank you for checking out my video. I wish I could remember where that stamp holder came from, if I do I’ll let you know. Talk to you soon!
