I took most of September off from social media and posting things on both this blog and Youtube. I’ve been in a weird space most of this year and I really needed to take a step back and reevaluate what I was creating and why I was creating and sharing what I make. Taking the month off to literally not make anything gave me some time to actually consume and enjoy things. So here are a few things I’m currently enjoying for this month:
Anticipating — December Daily! I don’t know what it is about this year, but I’m really looking forward to this project. I’m thinking I’m going to make a mini coptic book like this one Paige Evans did in 2017. I absolutely LOVE how hers came out and I want to try my hand at a coptic stitch. Her book is 4×6 and I think that’s a perfect size for me to fill up!Sharing — My growing handmade journal collection. I have them all in this rustic brown wired basket and it’s overflowing! I’m in desperate need of a bigger basket to store them all in. But I took them out recently to look through. I like looking through old journals and minibooks I’ve made. Especially when I’m in a creative rut, they really inspire me. And I think that’s the best sort of inspiration–where you inspire yourself.
