So, the goal setting thing kinda took off. My goal for 2022 is to Downsize!
Now, to me “downsize” has taken on a lot of meanings:
*To Do Lists:Do
…and here is where we pick up the story.
I’ve had a lot of plans over the years, and along with those plans were purchases of some pretty pricey items. Some of these items were just gathering dust for one reason or another. For example, my Silhouette “Portrait” cutting machine. I don’t know about you, but some of the simplest technology can throw me for a loop. So it became a dust collector, until I decided to spend a day wrestling with it, and I won!
Now one more project is knocked off my list! (and I have a box of stickers I need to downsize!)
And that brings me to the other subject of this post, YouTube videos. You will find the videos to these journal spreads on my channel, the link is in my sidebar.
This goal was twofold: Finish up half-done art journals (also called the “Art Journal Stack Wrap Up”) and use the video camera that was gathering dust. Check!
I thought that if I’m going to accomplish the goal of getting 6 pages or 3 page spreads done per week, I might as well record the process, which brought a whole other bag of technological worms along with it!
Social Media Downsizing: Use them or delete them
Over the last couple of years I’ve been on the fence as to whether or not social media was worth the effort, it can be a real time vampire, setting up the photos, photographing, editing, links, writing captions, but the payoff is building a community.
I don’t have crafty friends in my life, so I have to reach out digitally, which I don’t mind in the least. I consider myself extremely lucky to have these platforms to share my love of crafting and meet so many awesome people!
So, I’m jumping back in again, and I couldn’t be happier! I’m sharing on all the platforms I used to share on now…I’m not adding any more though (twitter=gone).
I’ll try to post here about once a week about my videos, with photos. I don’t video all of my page spreads, so I’l be popping those in here too.
As always, thank you for stopping by,
Have a great week,

I LOVE this downsize idea. I have been doing these things (decluttering, using what I have, eliminating, finishing) but I love how you got it all under one heading of downsizing!
It really does contain a lot of possibilities Debra!
Good Morning Patty! I always enjoy your posts. The links aren’t working, but since I subscribe I found them. Love/hate relationship with technology for me. I have a Cricut gathering dust and you just might have inspired me to dust it off. I love your journals. They are full of happiness and I think we can always use some happiness in our days! Continue to create happiness!
Thank you Lori! I couldn’t figure out the links, so I removed them. I wrestled with my Cameo yesterday, I think it was a tie!
Your to do list is very funny! I saw a FB post once from a mixed media artist about house work.
“House work is highly overrated!”
How true when you have a journal calling you…
I like how I incorporated art journaling into “household duties” 😂
