Here are some of my past journals I have made. I will be updating on a more regular basis to show new journals. The most up-to-date posts are on Instagram and Facebook. I have a few in my Etsy shop, however most sales are made from my used bookstore, Ye Olde Bookshoppe, in Wenatchee, WA, and Instagram, it’s just easier 🙂 I also try and upload to YouTube as time permits.
I make journals using my own materials, digi designs by others, random junk, scrapbook paper, etc. I make different styles as well. Junk Journals (my fave!), mini albums, sketch and watercolor journals, etc. I hand dye my own coffee paper and assemble the covers myself. I make my own bookcharms and tassels, and even my own paper beads.
Tired of relying on others for my income. I want to write a book and that is still a work in progress. The thing I spend most of my time on these days is homeschooling Miss Thing. Sometimes I find things I like online and sometimes I don’t. No matter what I find I think, if only it was different in this way….
We print out a lot of worksheets. In the beginning all the colors are so fun, then they get expensive and it is no fun running out of ink every week. Besides, we have colored pencils, crayons, markers, stickers, washi tape and other craft items. Who needs color ink? So I am now making our own printables. I will grow with her and as I learn more skills. My store is open and has just a few starter items in it. I will be busy this weekend! I am starting with two of her favorite things. Do-a-dot worksheets and “pwetty papah”. Do-a-dots are like bingo markers and come in some fabulous colors. Locally you can buy them at Academic Toolbox, they are also available on Amazon if you don’t have a store like that near you.
