...My (!) Crazy Days

Like usual, I have a million and one projects on the go...but today I've not only got the day to do them (though they cannot possibly be finished in one day) but the mojo is also working, which I'm so thankful for, as I feel she has been lacks so far this year. So not one single minute of today is being wasted, here's what it's looking like:
I go from my messy, messy, juicy messy desk where I am making my latest zine...
into another room where my computer & I are harmoniously video editing the next instalment of 'Art Journal Supplies 101' (well I say next instalment, there's only two - but they're mighty :) )...
via the hallway where every crossing I spend one minute on the floor with stencils & huge sheets of paper, ready to go inside the current journal I am making... 
during which time I usually come up a great idea that 'I just have to do now', but then remembering I have too much to do already & have to prioritise, I write it all down in my ideas journal. This usually takes a while in itself but at least I have the goodies stored...seriously this has happened every time I've picked up a stencil today - I've completed 6 new pages in this journal!...
I then jump on my new bike to try and re-focus (see I am using it!!) and it actually works, though in the beginning I usually end up thinking of another video I want to do...
but all I do is write it down here (on my current videos list) to be elaborated on later, and by the end of the exercising I am focused enough to jump off and go straight back to my desk to do more zine-ing!
(though in case you're wondering; no I'm not sweaty at this point as I only exercise for 10-15 mins at a steady rate - I tried half hour hard core this morning and nobody in the history of the world has ever needed a shower more - so I much prefer these gentle bursts!)
In case you want to see it here is the first half of the Art Journal Supplies 101 series, though I know many of my blogging friends are very advanced art journalers a few of my subscribers on youtube wanted a guided hand, so you may or may not get something out of it, it's your call but I still enjoy seeing what other people used in their journals and what techniques they have to share:
Hope you have a flying mojo today too, if not pop around here and I'll share some of mine - it has given me enough projects to do for the next 5 years so you could probably take some of those with you too lol much love Jennibellie xxx


  1. Great supply video! Thank you for all the info.

  2. LOL! I usually like to have several projects going at the same time and am a compulsive list maker, too. I loved this!! Already had watched part one of the supplies video and loved it! Can hardly wait for part 2. ;)
    Happy Wednesday!!

  3. My Mojo has been on a tea break... glad yours is back... :)

  4. Way to to go girl! I am SO impressed with your day. Sounds like your whole house or flat is an art studio. Am loving the purple stencils.

  5. Beautiful post Jenny... you have been incredibly busy and productive... love hearing about everything you have on the go... and the bike is great to work on amongst it all...

    Jenny x

  6. Such a busy hat goes off to you. Your videos are you use a separate camera or the one embedded in your computer........I am just curious!

  7. Wow, you were busy today. A bit of everything.
    I didn't seem to get anything done today, or for the week.

  8. How great for you! I love it when the mojo is up and running:) Glad to know you got so much done and I really like those stenciled pieces!!

  9. Phew....and you honestly make it look so easy!! Ha-ha! Sometimes do you get that feeling that your head will burst if you don't write it all down? or that mojo moment just as you are drifting off to sleep. Hm....ignore it or get up and give in? (who needs sleep anyway, it's over rated!) And yes, I'm curious about your camera/mic set up.

  10. Blimey, I'm exhausted just reading about it!

    Glad to hear it's all systems go :)


  11. Busy lady! Love all the projects and I often work the same way - I find it invigorating. Watched the video and though I'm familiar with all those media, I think you did a great job of explaining the pros and cons for beginners or someone who's contemplating trying a new medium.

  12. Thanks for the view into your crazy and wonderfully creative day. I loved it! Thanks also for all the amazing video's you do. You're a treasure!

  13. WOW!! Super post... thank you. :]
    Love the video.
    You are so wonderful, to take the time and create this for us. ((hugs))

  14. OMG Jennibellie... i'm tired just by READING this!! LOL!! And i thought I was doing too many things at once. You are one super productive, ambitious, creative woman!! Wow. And your videos are so great - you're so good with explaining each step. THANK YOU. And happy belated birthday!! What a wonderful time for you. ((BIG hugs!)) xoxo

  15. Hi Jennibellie,

    I haven't been around for a while..... I can see you've been very busy! The video is something else - well done and very informative! Thank you. Hmm, are you really going to stop at just two?!?


  16. I'm back for my Jennibellie fix and I got a double! Woo Hoo! I'm teaching JennibellieJournals in Florida next month and have made sure the link to your site and credit is given to you for the idea! :) I'm busy as a one legged man in an ass kickin as my hubby would say but love every minute of it. I'm happy to find you with your mojo front and center! Love, peace and ALL good things to you.

  17. Such beautiful business going on there Jennibellie! Have a grand weekend!

  18. Ooh...a new zine. I can't wait! I plan to do a review of Creative Juices soon. Inspiration flowed continuously. You really are a burst of artistic energy.
    Thanks for stopping by and visiting! ♥
