shop launch


and just like that,

Red rose - Shop is Open

.....the shop is OPEN!  Woohoo!

as many of you know i'm a bookbinder at heart...i love the whole process of creating vessels for you to pour your heart into.  so of course the star of the shop re-launch has to be a journal.  my handcut, hand stitched, vibrantly colourfulBooklets will be jam packing the virtual shelves.

last week on the blog i shared a couple videos on visual journaling and a post on writing your gratitudes, both showcasing some of the ways you can use the Booklets.

on monday i recorded a 3rd video, this one on bullet journaling, a daily planing and task management process { from ryder caroll } that has saved my sanity these last few years, especially leading up to the shop launch.


now that you've watched this ingenious way to use a booklet journal, head on over to check out all the goodness in the shop.  find 1 or 2 { or perhaps 10? lol } that appeals to you and purchase.  i'm awaiting your email to let me know it's time to head to the post office.

plus, don't forget i'm also doing a grand re-opening giveaway but, in order to participate,  you must be a member of the JOY love tribe { use the form below to sign up }.  i've had so much fun pulling together this basket of giveaway goodies, from art & journaling supplies to original artwork and more.  you don't want to miss out!

now go on.....go do some shopping.  it'll make both you and me happy.

thanks in advance,


Shop re-Launch is JUNE 15th!
