busy hands

art journal | embellished cover and 8 square chipboard pages

Call me incredibly lucky that I have a job that allows me to create things, with my busy hands, that make me happy and then to be able to share them with everyone else. Generally, when I begin a project I think, "What do I want?" and go from there. It seems that when I add a little bit of me to a print or mini book, it's a much better received product than when I just create something I think will be popular with the audience.

  2. Monika, I can't tell you how much inspiration I get from your mini books, they are absolutely gorgeous and creative, and purpose-driven. That's what I love about them. I need to get going on my anniversary one that I need to finish for Todd later this month. I'm using one of the spiral bound ones I got from you earlier this year. :)

    1. I'm really looking forward to how you take the mini album and make it fabulously your very own. I know it will be stunning and a much-loved gift!

  3. Drooooool! Love all these beautiful projects!!! :)

  4. I'm kind of intrigued by the idea of a really, really simple gratitude journal. Off to check yours out.... www.paperstarfish.prettyposies.com
