If you haven't already checked it out, I have a super fun set of videos up on my channel! I take some time (they're long, so grab a snack!) to go ahead and (start) teaching you how you can alter an old Altoid tin into something different and beautiful.
I figured that people may check the blog for some up close photos, so I thought I would go ahead and include two of them for you today. Once we have a completed tin, come back over to see some detailed photos of the entire tin!
I hope you guys are enjoying this little mini-series so far, and I'm as excited as you guys are to see how this looks in the end!
Remember, this tin is unfinished! So there are a lot of loose ends, stringy glue bits, and missing elements. Keep tuned in to my channel (don't forget to subscribe!) and see what it turns into!
Were you watching the video screaming "I HAVE THE PERFECT IDEA!" then let me know! I'd love to hear your inputs, opinions, ideas...everything! Remember, this is a learning experience for all of us, everyday. Just let go, have fun, and do what feels GOOD. This is about relaxing, de-stressing, and letting go, especially in times of stress. Never take your art, or yourself, too seriously.
Until next time!

Happy Hump Day everyone! If you haven't already checked it out, I uploaded a video this morning. I show off some super tiny projects of mine, including a junk journal! I also show off some of my new little tags I've made, and walk you through making another.

I also promised a bit of a "catch up" photo-wise when it comes to all things art I've done recently. This is a very image heavy post! I've added some LMAJJ pages, my personal art journal close ups and other fun stuff. Go ahead and take a closer, longer look at some of my art by clicking the link below!

Hey everyone! Long time no blog! I decided to give it a shot again, and try to make sure I actually update here; even if it's just once a week. For right now I just want to chat and catch up on a few things. Later, I want to make a post of all the art we've done in our LMAJJ book, and some of my side projects, so you can all get a closer look at everything! But that requires photos... So for now, let's get caught up a bit otherwise...

I have been a total slacker lately with process videos. And everything in general. BUT...I tried really hard and actually got a LMAJJ video up today! Hooray! Now to continue being a potato until my stomach is back to normal.

Today you're going to be getting TWO videos! First up, I wanted to get a little personal with you all...Not like that! But I wanted to show everyone my (almost) finished wedding project and tell you the story of how it all happened...and how we got to where we did. And ok; its the super abridged version, I can't go through an entire 5 years in a few minutes, but its still my favorite story to tell.
I also thought I'd give you guys a quick flip of my personal junk journal. I did one not too long ago, but I've finished a few pages and thought it'd be a good time to give it a flip now that I don't do my pages in chronological in this book. Again; lots of wedding stuff! I can't help it; It was truly my own fairy tale that I'm still reliving every day! Check out the video below for all that!
And because I couldn't wait any longer---I HAVE to show you the happy mail that inspired the "door" in our YouTube Junk Journal! This package was absolutely so fun to go through, and packed full of inspiration! Thank you again so much, D.!
(And for those wondering; the flip book is where I'm putting poetry and quotes now!)
Thanks again so much to everyone! Have a fabulous week!

Why not shove these into one blog post, shall we? I got some super awesome happy mail from two fabulous ladies other week! If you haven't already watched the video, go ahead and check that out! I did forget to do photos for that video, but I guess that means you just have to watch extra hard! I honestly cannot thank everyone enough! This had been so incredible (even if my husband is getting super jealous of all the fun mail I've been getting!) and really not at all anything I ever expected!
And of course, I can't forget about the next installment of LMAJJ! I really just wanted to make art. Not anything really specific, but just do a bunch of things that felt really good and call it art. My favorite way to do it! I also wanted to quick show off my altered Altoid's tin. This is something I used to do a lot when I was a teenager, so it was fun to try it again. I have definitely caught the bug and want to alter everything! Watch the video below to see what I did, and then click the Read More below to see photos!
