Filling up journals as proof of my meager existence.

Art journal prompt: spring

I was blessed with the challenge to make an art journal spread based on the prompt of spring.  Here you can sit and watch me through my process as I pick out what I want to use and put it all together in a journal spread devoted to my spring resolutions.  Thank you for watching.  Please remember to leave a comment and a thumbs up on a video and subscribe to me via YouTube or on BlogLovin’ (or your favorite feedreader) to keep up with me here.

Flip Through of my Book Journal, February 2108

I got this journal from Ex Libris Anonymous– it was made from a book called Little Navajo Bluebird by Ann Nolan Clark.  Join me as I flip through my month of February including lots of Valentine’s nonsense, 90s inspired music and collages, and lots of blackout poetry.  I like my Book Journal and I would be open to using one again in the future.  I encourage any of you readers to check out Ex Libris Anonymous for your next notebook.  Warning: Book Journals are not Sharpie or Copic marker friendly.

Coffee & autumn journal flip through

Join me as I drink my morning coffee and talk about my most recently filled journal (my foxy journal) and a couple of other random things I have been wanting to show you.

I don’t think the freebie promotion is going on anymore but Fat Head is the site that I got my emoji stickers from. If you find a link for a free emoji sticker, please let me know and I will update this so other people can get the stickers.

Finishing my Foxy journals, starting my Eccolo

I recorded a quick video update today to let you know that I met my goal of completing my Foxy journal in time for my birthday.  Today I am starting my Positive Thoughts journal by Eccolo* (*this is normally where I would link you to where you can purchase the same journal, but for the love of all that is good I cannot find to order online*) while drinking all the coffee I can suck down.  I hope everyone reading this has an amazing day.

Why do you date your journals in the year 10,000?

I first discovered the Human Era calendar in December 2016 from the YouTube channel Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell.  The idea of adding ten thousand years to our calendar to acknowledge how far humankind had come truly resonated with me.  To pay my respects to my ancestors who hunted and gathered their way to developed agriculture and buildings is important to me, so I respect them every day when I write in my journal and begin the year date with a one.  I recommend checking out the video below for more information.
