I decided to take some inspiration from my own page. I decided to do the One-Word Prompt. I did all the words.
It wasn’t about putting a meaning to all the words as I do in The Word Book. It was more a make these words go with the month, the colors, and with something that’s celebrated this time of year. This time Mardi Gras fell in March, and it’s where I got the inspiration for my prompts, and this is how I got here.
Visit the PICS Page to get your inspiration. Its updated monthly.
The stencils and alcohol sprays can be found in my shop.

This month for Mrs. Sonya’s challenge, I decided to make a shadow box clock.
This is a scrap project. Made from paper, I molded it into a pan and an oatmeal container. The flowers are made from Tim Holtz’s Tattered Florals dies (the large and the minis). I decoupaged with napkins she sent me in happy mail and added some gems off camera.
This may be a future tutorial on my Patreon we’ll see.
If you’d like to see the video, click here. There is also a second part to this project. This will be posted on March 29th.

This month, I took the index card art to a different level. I made flat cards for the first two months, and this time around, I didn’t want to do so.
I tried to stick with a bit of a grungy spring theme. Flowers, pinks, blues, yellows, and a few other colors.
At first, I didn’t like how it turned out. I got up, cleaned up, and walked away. I came back to add my finishing touches. Some gold…. I feel all my mixed media projects need gold or something related to it….well not my art journal pages.
I also recorded this in a different way. I decided to get a canvas blanket, roll it out, put my yoga mat under it, and created. This video is gonna be a bit of an odd one. I got up so many times. It’s easier to be at my desk creating versus being 3 feet away and unprepared. 🤣
As you know, life happens, but that doesn’t change anything. I went back to work, and it limited my creative time. So there will be a shift in the timing of projects. Well, just one project, should I say—the Cookie Club. There is no issue with the shipping or getting kits put together. It’s the timing of the videos. I’ll still get those video(s) out, but not as early as expected.
The show must go on
My part for the Makers Creative Collab will still go out as planned, the January swap is still a go, and there is also a giveaway. Be sure to check the PICS page for details on swaps and giveaways.
I’ve been keeping up with the December Daily, if you haven’t noticed. It’s fun and relaxing. I’m not a journaler, but I wasn’t a crafter either. 🤣 Trying to be a little Christmasy.
I have a new kind of daily prompt for January, similar to how I did an entire month of Notes-member, but it will be more than motivational quotes. For the last week of December, I’ll be putting the information for that out there. Be sure to keep up with the PICS page.
