The 5 Must-Haves for Planners and Bullet Journals

December 30th, 2019

20161229_calendar_001_600wThis year, I decided not to set lofty, unattainable New Year’s Resolutions. I always vow to journal more, to record more of life’s little moments, and I expect to fill an entire journal by the end of the year. I’m good for the first week, and then my journal sits on the nightstand until the next year when I start over with another blank journal. I can’t tell you how many journals I have with only the first few pages filled in. So this year, I thought that I would set an achievable goal by jumping on-board with the current planner trend. Planners are a great way to record life without getting your expectations too high. You can create an artful planner with just a few must-have materials and then fill in each day with the moments you’d like to remember forever. Read the rest of this entry »

Creativity is Contagious

July 23rd, 2019

This inspiring article by artist, Vanessa Valencia, was originally published in Somerset Life Summer 2018: Available here.

Twelve years ago I found myself more inspired and excited to plunge into a journey than I had ever been. There was this magical place, vast and intriguing, filled with endless creativity and a platform to share it. I plunged head first into the proverbial rabbit hole of the blogosphere.
