Memory Journal: August…still!

I’m still working on August in my little Memory journal folks. WoW!

In my defense, it was a busy month!

…and for some reason my grandson decided he liked his picture taken.

The little nut!

Summers over on the east side of Washington state are really fun because it stays warm and rains very seldom, so there’s lots to do.

This was a fun page to put together. A business card where we had lunch, a card from a sweet friend, a photo of course, and the fortune from a cookie.

But I’m seriously having fun using up my stash!

Have you been working on a memory journal too? If you are, please let me know in the comments so I can take a look. Also, please let me know how you feel about a video on my memory journal process.

Until next time,

Enjoy the rest of  your week,

Thank you for popping in,

Shoppe News! Kitschy Ephemera Packs!

By now you probably know how I feel about kitsch…kinda awesome!

In January I made some pretty kitschy art journals, so I thought it would be fun to put some ephemera packs together too.

Filled with all manner of kitschy goodness, cards, game pieces, images, postage stamps, the usual suspects.

Of course with all the orange and green goodness that befits the 60’s and 70’s.

50+ pieces in each pack, including some pretty cool paperclips to decorate your project.

I made eight of these, and each one is totally unique. Please pop over to my Etsy shoppe to see the full line.

…and as always,

Thank you for the visit,

Have a great week,

Video Up! “Quote Journal 2, the Sequel”

Here is the second part of the long, long, “Quote Journal” video I made last week. Apparently I am no longer shy about chatting on my videos, I figure I can edit it out…or not.

Anyway, if your interested in seeing how this page came together , pop on over to my YouTube Channel!

Of course it would be super awesome if you subscribed to my channel!

Let me know what you think!

See you soon,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great week,

YouTube Video Up!

Yay! Another video finished and posted on my YouTube channel!

It was so much fun to make, I actually made two!

I was having so much fun that the video stretched into an hour. No amount of editing was going to make an impact, so I split into two.

“Quote Journal 2, the Sequel” is ready to go and I’ll be uploading it some time next week!

In the mean time, if your interested in seeing the process video of this page spread, head on over to my YT channel!

As always,

Thanks for stopping in,

Have an awesome week,

Back So Soon?! …you betcha!

Under the heading of “reasons/excuses” in my last blog post as to why I haven’t been keeping up with my blog is the amount I post to Instagram, the redundancy factor. But, I’m also realizing that not everybody likes IG or FaceBook (I’m not a fan of FB). So, whether or not I post to IG or FB will no longer have anything to do with my blog posts.

That being said…

Here’s a little something I worked on last night.

I felt as if all I did over the weekend is play “catch-up”! I needed a little art time to counter balance the steady onslaught of To Do lists! In other words, some Me Time!

This vintage post card has been making the rounds from shelf to shelf for a few months now, I just wasn’t sure what to do with it. My usual M.O. is to stick it in a container of some sort and forget about it.

The problem was, it has all this wonderful writing on the back and I didn’t want to just glue it into a journal willy nilly and loose all those memories. I think this card is from 1910, it’s a little faint.

Luckily for all concerned, I just happened to find my photo corners the other day, so problem solved! And now somebody else’s keepsake has found a new home.

It occurred to me that underneath this card would be an excellent, secret journaling spot, that may or may not ever happen.

I would really appreciate your input on the Instagram/FaceBook issue. How do you feel about these social media outlets? Do you prefer a blog? Or all three? Please let me know in the comments. Personally, I feel as if blogs are a little less noisy and a lot more friendly!

Thank you for the visit,

Have a great day!
