For just over 2 weeks I have been travelling around the USA with my bloke, we arrived home on Friday. When Rackycoo sent me this wonderful bingo card journal, I knew it would be perfect for all the nick-nacks and paper things I would collect along the way. The pages contain a mix of found objects, collected items and a few things from my stash. I painted the pages before I left so things wouldn't get too messy, but pretty much all of the collaging was done whilst I was away, when I was sat having coffee, in the hotel or train :D
So excited you're here! If you wanna learn more about building a creative biz, subscribe to my FREE email newsletter on my sidebar. If I’m in a funk, I can usually get out of it by playing in my art journal for an hour or two.
"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward." ~Amelia Earhart I've secretly been building a series of step-by-step art journaling posts revolving around the idea that art journaling isn't one easily defined concept.
These pretty printables are fabulous and free…you can’t go wrong with that! Decorate your home with quotes and flowers, throw a party that looks like a million bucks or wrap a gift with the perfect tag. Oh my gosh…you are going to love these!!! There’s a little something for everyone. I wish I could share a photo of each one, but my blog would most likely blow up…ha! Make sure your printer has color ink before you start, and feel free to share this list with all your friends…they’ll love you for it!
Today’s post is a little something from my childhood. At school we often used to write letters and doodle in our notebooks to pass the time during boring classes. Every now again we’d be more elaborate in our “crafts” and would make decorated fortune tellers. This simple origami game has delighted kids for years and in America, where I grew up, we went so far as to call them “cootie catchers”.
I’m always on the lookout for fun holiday projects in keeping with the Thrive Philosophy: No money. No shopping. No problem. And just in time for Halloween, check out these frightfully cute lanterns!

I’m starting a little exercise in my journal today. I’m calling it Scribble Studies. Lately, I’m doodling more faces. I’ve realized that if I do them in a more scribbly way, the form is more forgiving and I’m not so worried about making them “perfect”.
