"In the Studio" is a new blog feature I'm starting. What is it? Basically I just want to share some behind the scenes peeks with you, what I've been working on in the studio, what you can look forward to, and other random things from my week.
I plan to post these on Fridays. I'm not sure if it will be weekly or not. We'll see. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about this new feature?
- Art journal tutorials
- Restyling and reorganizing my studio
- Project Life
- Planning Autumn projects
- Catching up on design team projects
- We went to a flea market and a few thrift stores this past weekend. I found a few items to restyle!
- I had my first pumpkin frappe of the season
- Lots of tea drinking
Today I'm on the Love My Tapes blog sharing how I use washi tapes in my art journal. If you want to see a peek into my journal and get some fun ideas for using washi tape in your journal, hop on over!

Back at the end of June I worked as a vendor (my family owns a glazed nut cart) at Celebrate Freedom, which is a huge free concert here in DFW. I love all of the bands that played, so I got to listen to good music all day. Awesome, right?
I wanted to make a mini album to document the event, so I grabbed some papers, embellishments, and a binder ring to put this together.
While I was there, I collected all of the free wristbands that everyone gives out. Since I never wear these after the events I get them at, I decided to include them in my album. I wasn't sure how I was going to do that at first, but then I decided just to stitch them down directly on to a page.
Have you ever included something like rubber bracelets into your scrapbooks?

Hey everyone,Today I'm sharing a simple, yet lovely frame that is super easy to DIY. Can you believe it's almost September? I'm so excited about that. Autumn is just around the corner, and my birthday is in (just over) one week!
I posted this DIY on the Hazel and Ruby blog.
I hope I've inspired you to go to the store and buy all of the wooden frames! They're so easy to customize and use with H&R products!
