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.

 My biggest struggle is talking about it!  After days of planning, making, photographing, and listing in my shoppe…I’m kinda over it and ready to  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,

It’s That Time of Year Again!

Time for the iHanna Postcard Swap!

I love this time of year, I get to go through all the great happy mail ephemera that has been sent to me over the years, and make art with it!

But best of all, I get to make a keepsake page for my Happy Mail Journal!

And for some reason I decided to up my game and post three videos per week on my YouTube channel, so if you’re interested in seeing a video on my postcard process, go HERE.

…and if you’d like to see the process video on my keepsake page, head on over HERE.

Please let me know if you have any ideas for videos in the comments, I need all the help I can get!

Much Love,

Thank you so much for visiting,

Have a great day,

~Patty

 

“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,

A New Art Journal, A New Video, and A Brave Decision

In my efforts to clean and declutter my spaces…and I mean ALL spaces, I decided that I still have too many half finished projects. So this quite-a-bit on the larger side journal needed to start getting worked on.

It was bound, full of pages (and potential) and ready to go…but never went anywhere, another one of those projects that left me uninspired. So, I took it apart and used the pages in other journals, all that was left was the covers and binding wires.

The other day it got a reprieve! And this morning I made a video of it’s maiden voyage (meaning I decorated a page)!

I haven’t gotten around to the journaling yet, but she’s ready to go!

I hope you will take a minute to stop by my YouTube channel and check out my page process video

Now about the “Brave” part. I’ve quit Facebook for good (I hope)! I know it sounds strange, but I almost got hacked again, I rarely use it, and seems more of a hassle than it is worth. I have control over the content in all my other social media venues, but facebook feels as if it has a mind of it’s own, like a gigantic monster…okay that’s a little over the top, but you know what I mean. But this is also another one of those “De-clutter projects” that I’ve been working over the last couple of years, a “Tech de-clutter”!

Anyway, I would really like your input on the subject. Please let me know your feelings about Facebook, good or bad, in the comments.

In the meantime,

Have a great week,

Thanks for stopping by,

~Patty

 

 

September 6, In My Memory Journal

Yay! Another page spread in my memory journal! All it took was a little organization to move this project forward! There is a video that goes along with this blog post where I go into a little more detail about my organization. There are still a few things to iron out, but I’m definitely making slow, but forward progress!

And I’m still having fun playing catch-up!

But, I think it may be a good idea to get this done before my grandson goes to college.

There is always so much to do!

Some people know how to stop and smell the roses…with their whole face!

Anyway, if you would like to see the video of this page spread, head on over to my YouTube channel, Patty’s Art Journals and take a look!

Until next time,

Thank you so much for stopping by,

See you soon,

~Patty
