Shoppe Newness!

 

As per usual, I’ve been keeping myself pretty busy. Luckily I have been able to spend a little time making for my shoppe. I will be the first to admit that my shoppe isn’t setting the world on fire, but I’ve managed to sell enough that some replenishment was due.

Here’s a new ephemera pack theme, “Down on the Farm”, full of mid-century children’s books images! (and all ephemera pack international shipping prices are now drastically lowered! Yay!)

You know, I love almost every aspect of running my little shoppe. Putting together themed ephemera packs…

New “Garden” themed Junk Journal Inserts.

…choosing pages and themes for my journals…

Junk Journal insert ephemera pack.

…organizing my shoppe supplies…

Junkity Junk Journals.

…and especially hearing back from folks that love what they have purchased. That totally warms my heart!

I’m happy, off in my little world making away, filling my shoppe with goodies.

ย My biggest struggle is talking about it!ย  After days of planning, making, photographing, and listing in my shoppe…I’m kinda over it and ready toย  move on! Not a great sales strategy I know, but there you have it!

Let me know if you have any questions about international mailing prices on ephemera packs. Here is a link to my shoppe: PattysArtJournals

So, there you have it, the latest and the greatest.

As always,

Thank You so much for stopping by!

Talk to you soon,

“Memory Junk Journal” Page Prep Video Up!

Two things have happening lately: One, I’m making videos on a pretty regular basis, and Two, I’m humming right along on my “Memory Junk Journal”! YAY!

I had to make another journal insert to get started on October, so I thought I might as well film the process. I like having the backgrounds decorated to save time.

Photos from texts that would most likely not end up in a photo album, but precious memories that I needed to document.

I hope you will find the time to check out my video, some of the commentary is pretty fun!

Here’s the link to my YouTube Channel. The video is a little lengthy, but informative.

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great weekend,

September 7-11 In My Memory Journal

All I can say here is…This Was So Much Fun!

These were the days when I was helping my daughter out and watching my grandson while she worked, so he didn’t have to go to daycare everyday. She’s a stay at home mommy now, but I can still give her a break now and again.

I think one of the things I miss quite a bit is that these were taken during the summer last year. It has been a long winter for a lot people, so summer shenanigans are well and truly in order!

I hope I will find the time to continue working on this when the weather improves…cheeky boy!

There is a video that goes with this on my YouTube channel, Patty’s Art Journals, if you would like to see how this page spread came together.

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Have a wonderful day!

Quote Journal Page

The other day, I found this quote card that I had printed up years ago. Not having the energy, or where-with-all, to look for a place to put it, I decided to just plant it where it belonged, in my quote journal.

…and, I figured since one of my goals this year was to make more process videos, I set up my camera. I know! I am also very surprised!

Clearly it was too early in the morning for such goings on, because when I did talk, I was just tongue tied. But, oh well, at least it’s up!

Then there was the ink stamping debacle, I may or may not have reprieved myself, you be the judge.

So, if your interested in seeing me put this page together, head on over to my YouTube Channel, Patty’s Art Journals, and see what you think.

As always,

Thank you for visiting,

Have a great day,

The Last Page in My “Inky” Journal

So, the other day whilst filming my “Memory Journal Tag Page” vid, I figured since I had the camera set up, I might as well film another video.

If you have been following me for a while, this journal will be pretty familiar…oh, the angst!

Well, I’m happy to say that this is the last page of this journal! I’m even happier to say that I have had so much fun working in it, I’m making another one. A couple of people asked me to make a video of the page painting/inking process, so that will be happening soon also.

I had a tough time with my “Quack Grass” piece, but it was one of those things I couldn’t let go of, and I’m super happy it’s finally found a home.

Yes, I get attached to small pieces of paper…but you knew that, right!?

I left a little journaling spot on the last page to jot down a few thoughts. This journal and I have not been fast friends, so a little farewell note is definitely called for.

So, goodbye little journal!

I hope that you will take some time to visit my YouTube Channel and check out my latest video. Please let me know what you think!

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by,

Have a great week,

~Patty
