After 2 weeks of training, I’m off until after Christmas. Today is just my first day in and I’m already on a creative cloud. I decided to pull out a random hand full of box flaps that I cut off the main part of food packaging and create.
I used stencils from P.M. Artist Studio. A pair of Mixed Media Queens I’ve been following for about a year or so. One of my most favorite things they make are gelli printed, stenciled, ATC’s. To me, it’s like a decorated cookie.
With my scraps, stencils, paints, alcohol sprays, texture paste, and gelli plate, I created these babies.
The tiny one at the top is my FAVORITE one. It may be an inch and a half by three quarters of an inch.
I really enjoyed making these and I may get out some more scraps to continue.

It’s day 30 and we’re about to step into December. Before we close out Notes-vember and move into the next month, ask yourself some questions about your process and progress.
How do you feel about yourself? Are you proud of yourself? Has the love for yourself grown stronger?
What changed? What stayed the same?
What new routines/habit have you started/built?
How many new people have you met and interacted with?
How have your existing relationships changed? Have they grown? Has anyone walked way? Did you let anyone go?
The list of questions are endless, but all you need to do is ask yourself the ones that matter. Don’t ask yourself the “safe questions” because you’re afraid to ask the ones that require digging up and letting go. This is your time to put it on the tablet, look at it, talk about it, and move it to the “out bin.”
Reflection & Thank You
I greatly appreciate those that took the time to read for the entire month of November. I appreciate those that visit this sometime down the line.
I hope this 30-Day journey of motivation and reflection boosts you in whatever way you need it to. The tool is here, its all about how you use it. Tell yourself what you want, what you need, and where you want to go.
What’s Up With December?
December Daily… For the month of December, I’ll be participating in the December Daily with Bree from 1134 Press and other journalers. I’m not really a journaler, but I feel I can learn and do it in my own way based on the prompts given. I didn’t post my journal for Notes-vember, I’ll likely share the December Daily because it be too personal.
Be sure to check out Bree on YouTube at 1134 Press. She does great work and her channel is so peaceful.
She has all kinds of informative videos. From book binding, to how to start a journal, and how to find things to make your journal with.
The Cookie Club… I’ll also be having The Cookie Club: 12 Days of Christmas thing going. If you’d like more information on that, visit the sticky post at the top of the Neatsuites blog or visit the PICS page.
Makers Creative Collab… I’ll be participating in another collab with the Makers of Mixed Media Art/Artists group on Facebook. There’s a gaggle of us YouTubers that post our processes or the a showing of the final project. Not to forget about the sneak peeks and teasers posted until the big day. If you’re into mixed media and all other types of artful goodness, be sure to check P. M. Artist Studio on YouTube. I’ve learned so much since watching their channel.
