The Stationery Tool I Love Best

I think that out of all the craft tools I possess, scissors are my number one favorite. Handy in so many ways; scissors are worth carrying around. While I keep a couple larger utilitarian pairs, I’m pickier with my mini scissors. I like to switch them out from time to time, coordinating it to the… Continue reading The Stationery Tool I Love Best

I have endless thoughts, I fill pages of images and collages that inspire me or express what I feel at the moment,… Continue reading Journaling Your Stress and Anxiety

Old Sketchbooks

I love visiting old sketchbooks, especially those that I carried around in college. I went to an arts college, so I was constantly in contact with other creatives and inspiration was everywhere. My sketchbooks were for drawing, class notes, project ideas, and creative writing. While I majored in interior design, I was exposed to all… Continue reading Old Sketchbooks

Journaling in a Moleskine Notebook | What I Learned

I finished yet another blank notebook – huzzah! – this time a Peanuts themed Moleskine. I’ve used Moleskine journals way back in high school, so journaling in one really brought me back to the basics of putting pen to paper.

New Journal Supplies | March 2016

This past month has been a time for experimenting with different art supplies. I wanted to share what I’ve acquired so far, since I’ve been having so much fun playing these new things.
