I don't know why (because it's totally not true) but I feel like I've not made any books recently. I know, I know I've shown you lots that I've made recently - the Greetings Card journals and one in the videos below shows a new smashbook I made a couple of days ago, so I guess yes technically I have been making them, but a few months ago I would make like 3-7 a day.
Now my creative time has to be divided with online activities and making videos. Don't get me wrong I love doing all of those things, but it was nice to just take some time & a load of junk and just make some books, without the pressure of having to film it or worry about the outcome.
Etsy shop. I think what also feels good is putting new stock in my store again, it's got plenty of journals in there but it's been a couple of months now since I made any journals with the intention to sell them, so I guess it made me feel productive too.
And finally here is my handmade version of a K & Company smash book, which for a long time I tried to avoid because while they are very pretty & cool, they are just the 'old school' style of scrapbooking. It's what I remember doing as an teenager (a teenager who stumbled her way through creativity while oblivious to the actual world of crafting) & what my mum, who is not a crafter at all, used to do with those big ole A3 green scrapbooks and sellotape in all the memorabilia from her hockey team. But I gave in, because they are adorable and as they actually look like journals & not scrapbooks they sing to me, not just call my name, but sing it lol
Hope you are feeling as revved up in your creativity as I am today - I'm just hoping I don't burn it all out tonight :) much love & wishes, Jennibellie xx
