DIY Watercolor Art

Spring is here and I'm ready to do all the projects around the house to make everything super beautiful. Do you feel that way too? If so, I'm sharing a super easy and beautiful DIY project with you today. I'm sharing how to make beautiful DIY Watercolor Quote Art.

The best part about this project is that it's so multipurpose. These gorgeous DIY watercolor quote art can be hung on your wall as wall art, sent to penpals as a gorgeous pick-me-up piece of art, or used in your memory keeping albums. They are perfect for so many different things because they are simple and lovely. Also, they only take 15 minutes or so to make and only require 4 supplies!

You can see a full video tutorial on my YouTube channel- https://youtu.be/c9QvsKg66y4

The process is super easy, just create a watercolor background with your paints. Wait 10 minutes for it to dry then add your quote sticker on top. Easy peasy and so pretty! You can see the whole process on my YouTube channel so make sure you go check that out!

2017 OLW Traveler's Notebook

This year is the first year I'm creating a memory keeping project separately for my One Little Word of the year. It's pretty darn exciting because I'm using a Pocket Page Traveler's Notebook, which is a new medium for me and I can't wait to see how the project progresses throughout the year.

My One Little Word this year is Intentional.

Here's a peak at my pages from January. You can also see the full video walk through on my YouTube channel here.

For my OLW "Intentional" this year, I'm focusing on setting particular goals each month aimed towards some major goals- Living in a more minimal way, paying off debt, and pouring love and effort into my business. January's goals included purging my closet and craft room and selling tons of stuff- this goal I totally rocked and it helped me meet my bigger annual goal of minimizing my possessions and paying off debt. I also had some other goals- focusing on the spaces I want to create in our home, shopping ethically, etc.

You can see what each page documents and a full explanation of my 2017 One Little Word Pocket Page Traveler's Notebook in my YouTube Video. So far I'm loving the setup I have and that I'm documenting my OLW progress this year. Documenting it helps to keep me accountable, which I love! Have you tried a Pocket Page Traveler's Notebook yet? How are you documenting your OLW this year?

2016 December Daily Traveler's Notebook

If you're not following me on YouTube yet, you've probably missed my December Daily from this last Christmas. Luckily, I had the chance to take some photos of my Traveler's Notebook that I did my December Daily 2016 in and I'm sharing that today!

Doing December Daily in a Traveler's Notebook this year was totally revolutionary. It's the quickest I've ever finished my December Daily and the most fun I've had with it. Totally stress free compared to doing the 6x8 mini album which usually overwhelms me with expectations! It was so cool to work in this new format and it turned out pretty darn cute.

If you'd like to see all my 2016 December Daily Traveler's Notebook, you can check out my YouTube channel. Here's a list of everything I shared in detail there-
