oh what a year

Oh my. Has it really been almost a year since I've blogged? It may be apparent as to why that is with the subject of my last post but let's not get into that right now.

I'm here to post links to most of the freebies I've put out over the years and to say that there will be a slight revamp in the next month. This space is in need of a botox injection. Or maybe just a good facial. 

For now, here are those links...

Bringing Cozy Back

Be back soon!


I usually steer clear when it comes to politics but this has been a doozy of an election. It's hard to not be swept away in all the excitement and anxiety.  
That said, I needed something to add to my documenting and whipped up a few printables. I'm happy to share them with those who are with her as well. 

Here you go! **I'm with her printable**

Happy Election Day!


I almost feel as though my documenting comes and goes with the changing seasons. Like now, now I'm hustling to get fall done so I can focus on the upcoming winter season. I never feel like going backwards once a new season has arrived so if I don't get Sept/Oct done now, I never will.

I haven't shown much of my documenting mainly because it's not really show worthy.  A lot of spreads are super basic. Photos, a little journaling. Done. As long as they're in pockets, I'm good. No fuss (embellishments) not frills (kit contents) just the basics. It's good. It keeps me moving forward.

While working on my fall spreads, I created a few things for myself that I thought I'd share with all of you. 

Yay! Freebie!

Free things are good (most of the time) and I hope you enjoy this one. It's a straightforward 8 1/2 x 11 pdf that holds 4- 3x4 cards. Just print and cut!

I won't waste any time explaining or apologizing about my absence. I've always wished I could be a blogging genius but simply put, I'm not. So here I am, 3 months later, checking in. 

Summer, so far has been good. More growth, knowledge + practice.

- Although I thought I failed miserably at the #the100daychallenge, I found that I kept up with my goal of practicing everyday since. Whether it's sketching or painting, it's important that I make the time to practice.

- I finally took a local screen print workshop after a few years of just trying to figure out what the hell I was doing. I've learned so many things. A hands on approach to learning has always been the key to success for me personally so I'm excited about immersing myself in printing again. 

- I've consistently used a planner for the past 1 1/2. This one makes it easy and motivates me to actually use it rather than throwing it on a shelf.  

Overall, things are coming together steadily, with more love + balance. When you wake up excited about the day, I'd say you're on the right track. It's just about finding that track. Take time in searching. It's worth it.
