My Blog Introduction!

Allow Me To Introduce Myself!

My love for "The Arts" all began in January 2013 after I created a mixed media art journal from a Martha Stewart notebook and an old pair of denim jeans. I couldn't fill my journal pages fast enough. There was something about documenting my story in a creative way & "SEEING" the Lord's hand in my life that kept me wanting more & more.

However, several months later, I had the dreaded experience of having to 'delete' some of my family photos from my cell phone because my memory was at capacity. HUGE bummer!!! There had to be a better way, not only to 1) capture special snippets of life, but also 2) document sweet moments of everyday living that would normally be forgotten, in a way that could be preserved for years to come. I discovered pocket scrapbooking while watching some of my favorite crafty peeps on YouTube. I totally found my solution!

So, if you are looking for a super fun way to preserve your memories and pocket scrapbooking is a consideration, but you just don't know where to start or if you are intrigued by mixed media & art journaling, and the fear of not being perfect is holding you back, grab a cup of coffee & stay a while. You are in the right place! 

Here's what you can expect to see on my blog:
  • cost-effective ways to mix both manufactured scrapbooking supplies & everyday repurposed items to create some super chunky pocket pages; 
  • way cool mixed media/art journaling tutorials;
  • artsy supply reviews;  
  • super thrifty, 'unconventional' ways to keep all your creative goodies organized. 
Up first in my blog roll is my: "Pocket Scrapbooking 101" series! Stay tuned! :D
