Life has been so busy I completly forgot to post about #Artifacts.
I have been looking at bullet journalling and decided it was not for me, and while I was thinking how to keep track on my deadlines and important appointments I came across the Artifacts Idea by Seth Apther, check out his blog here.
In these modern days everyone keeps theire agenda in their cell phones and allthough my phone is always within reach it does not work for me, I need to make lists, on paper, preferably on nice colored, decorated paper in a book that feels good when you hold it in your hands. (yah I know I am funny that way)
So instead of buying a agenda I thought to give the Artifacts idea a chance, and to be honest I am not doing it the way Seth does (see his pages here), I just make it work for me.
When I saw this book I had to pick it up, it's the quote on the front and the fabric cover that caught my attention. I picked it up and it felt right. it has lined pages so that's perfect the only downside is the paper is thin, too thin to really have wet media on it. But hey hoo, we know how to work around that don't we, just glue 2 pages togehter and voila.....
Ofcourse the inside needed some changes so I did some decoration using patterened paper and added a pocket. (I have notes lying around everywhere so I can now put them all in the pocket till they are done and can be thrown away)
BTW the news is I am designing rubber stamps for Sin City Stamps (yep I am in their DT as well). Kim saw a drawing I made and she asked if I would be interested in designing for Sin City (DUH!).
I think they will be in the shop in April, I will keep you posted.
So January started out great , I also reached 300 subscribers on my youtube channel, there is more but I can't share that yet :-). I am allowed to keep some secrets don't I?
So while I was working with this journal I thought it would be nice to keep some memories in there too, and also decided the art for some monthly challenges I participate in, would get in this book too.
In January I went to a Green Day concert and the ticket is now in my journal
the tag thing again....
and some cards I found in my craftroom
Not a lot else there , just the usual monthly deadlines for my DT's and challenges, a schedual for posting on my you tube channel. I hope in future there will be more art related things in there, more like Seth pages about demoing and workshops. Well who knows one day, like the cover says Dream Big Never Quit......
