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,

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!

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 Journalsย and take a look!

Until next time,

Thank you so much for stopping by,

See you soon,

“And It’s A Wrap!” a New Video Up!

You know, I think we all have a hard time keeping promises to our selves. I, like many people, enjoy doing things for family and friends, but sometimes I let that get in the way of doing things for myself…and there are only so many minutes in a day!

But, taking the time to start filling my channel with videos, and getting over my camera shyness, is a promise I’m keeping to myself so far!

This is the journaling page in my August Memory Journal. In case your not familiar with my memory keeping process, after I decorate the month’s pages with the photos and ephemera, I write the memory snippets and dates on tags and journaling cards on the last two pages for that month. I’m not sure where this habit came from, but I really enjoy it, so it stuck.

I’m pretty sure I just wanted an excuse to play with my tags! Many paper pads have fun tags and ephemera included, for memory keeping and such, and I’m a total sucker for them!

My goal is to make one video a week. I see people out there making 3 to 4 a week. Where do they find the time!?

Anywho, I hope you will pop over to my YouTube channel, “Patty’s Art Journals”, and watch my little process video on this page spread. It’s about 20 minutes long…I couldn’t make up my mind on color options.

Please let me know what you think. And, if there are any video ideas you would like to see, I would love you to share them with me!

As always,

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a great weekend,

~Patty
