My Favorite Things – December 2019

We all go through crafting phases at times.  Sometimes we are super interested in markers while other times paint gets all of our attention.  Sometimes it is all about layering with paper pieces while other times we can’t get enough of textured scissors.  I get questions all the time about what my favorite craft itemsContinue reading “My Favorite Things – December 2019”

The Ultimate Crafty Pegboard

No matter the size of your craft space, organization is the key to taking full advantage of your creative time every day. For me, setting up my craft space involved finding a balance between the organization and the aesthetic appeal.

We all make them.  Nobody is perfect.  Yeah, yeah, we hear that all the time.  Yet, when we go on social media, we see perfect lay-outs with crisp white backgrounds.  We see crisp stamping and clean lines.  And, all those things are great, but they are not the real world.  Glue gets out of controlContinue reading “Embracing Crafting Mistakes”

“Color Run” Traveler’s Notebook Process

A couple of weeks ago, my family participated in a Color Run at my daughter’s elementary school, and the event was so much fun!  The kids were so excited to be allowed to get absolutely filthy!  As I began to document the whole evening in my May traveler’s notebook, I grabbed the ephemera from “Carousel”Continue reading ““Color Run” Traveler’s Notebook Process”

Mixed Media Bible Journaling – JOY!

I don’t know about you, but May has my head spinning so far. With the array of end-of-school activities and programs, Mother’s Day, summer preparations, and volunteer commitments, I have been feeling overwhelmed and not at all full of joy. But, as a pastor at my church often reminds us, many of our stresses areContinue reading “Mixed Media Bible Journaling – JOY!”

Sunday Secret #9 – Secret Crafty Behavior

Back in graduate school, I was obsessed with “Sex in the City”.  I loved the show, watched it all the time, and could quote so many episodes!  In one of the episodes, Carrie Bradshaw writes an article about “Secret Single Behavior”.  These covered the realm of “secret” activities that everyone did when they were byContinue reading “Sunday Secret #9 – Secret Crafty Behavior”
