For weeks, I had been extremely busy and I hadn’t got a chance to do much crafting. I was busy with school, my kids, my husband, my house, and being pregnant. That last on is a doozy. 🙂 Anyhow, it normally takes me about a year to fill up a journal, but after making my last one, in November, I completely filled it up.
For a few days, I kept thinking of how badly I wanted to make my new journal. I kept trying to finish up my school work and my house work, so that I could peacefully craft. I have no idea what I was thinking. Housework, schoolwork, parenting, and all of the other things that I have going on in my life are never really done. Knowing this, I had to make room in my schedule to craft.
As I sat for an hour and a half, I rested my mind as my hands worked. I realized that I feel so free when I’m crafting. I don’t think I had realized it before, but on that day, I got it.
I looked through all of the different types of paper and materials that I had. I wanted to do something with spring in mind. I wanted something that would make me smile and bring me joy as I wrote in it. I decided to use one of the paper packets from close to my heart. I used the Chantilly Paper pack.
With this paper pack and a few embellishments, I created the perfect personal journal. I have really enjoyed it. One thing about creating things myself is that I want to create more beautiful pieces.
