I Was Creative 2021

I guess we thought it would be gone
it isn't
We all ventured out a little more than in 2020
I've never ordered so much online
as in 2020 and 2021
I shipped out a LOT of kits
in order for you to keep your 
creative spirit alive
Truly, don't feel bad for hoarding
all of those supplies
THEY WILL come in handy
for sure!
Shop or no shop
I will always be creative
Let's all try to stay well,
safe & moving forward
See you next year
have a safe

December Hope

I made the decision to close my web shop
I've been thinking about closing for some time now
The website that hosted my shop
was not meeting my expectations.
They did have fast customer service
wonderful help online with issues.
I felt it was time to make a change.
I won't bore you with other factors
that made this decision easy.
If you are a seller on any platform,
you know that fees are going up everywhere.
The pressure to keep my online shop stocked
was keeping me busy & happy
If I can create a few pieces at a time,
then offer them for sale,
I hope to be happier!
I will keep creating
offering on Instagram
(under A Little Bit French)
a few items now & then
(until I find a new site)

Creative Mindset

When you've been creating as long as I have,
the ideas are always present,
knocking on your door
Sometimes I jot them down
most of the time
I go with the flow
Letting go of hidden treasures
Trying to only create with what I have
Being inspired by crafty genius women
Cutting that expensive French fabric
Special kits just for you
(see...I am letting go)
I miss a few of my creative friends,
some have moved on in life,
others say they've lost that creative spirit.
I am hoping that doesn't happen to me.
I still have a studio/craft room full of supplies!!

August Studio Memories

August was a very busy time in the studio
I was able to create a lot and use up scraps of images
The ideas were flowing
2 petite junk journals
...and as always...
I try to create kits
to inspire you
It's time to get going again in the studio
I hope everyone is doing great
keeping those hands busy with creating
Take care
thanks for stopping by!

Creating with Digital Images

Thankfully, I can find wonderful
antique French ephemera 
in a digital download
(these pictured above are from Sam Poole's Etsy shop)
This wonderful French Notaire document
is from Heather's Ruby&Pearl Etsy shop
My printer has been running nonstop
So many beautiful digital images to print!
Very hard to find
the Tim Holtz Assemblage Locket
Using authentic antique photos
will always be my preference
sometimes, you just cannot part with them
Here's to another month of studio time!
Thank you for stopping by!

In Between Days

In between my office job
creating junk journals
I organize the studio & clean the studio
and more times than not,
I find pieces that I put away and forgot about
happens all the time
Here is a peek of inside some of the journals
that will be listed in my shop next week

I have been so busy creating & planning more journals.
Thanks for stopping by!
