Journal, Planner, Hobonichi or Bullet Journal On The Go?

Yes you can. This is a new concept for me too :) and it's so much fun!
Here is how it started, this is what happened...
I started writing things down on my planner with whatever I had in hand, a pen, pencil and a few markers I had around; even though my planner is nice and colorful it was already getting boring ha ha ha. So I thought to myself, this is not going to work unless I have all my journaling, embellishments and decorative supplies together, anything I can think of to decorate my notebook while I am writing my to do list and responsibilities to make it more fun :)

After gathering my supplies (by the way, even putting my supplies together was super fun) in one of these scrapbooking hold it all bags I realized I can take my planning everywhere with me :) (just like the scrapbook crops)

All of the sudden the idea of writing down a reminder for myself of everything I want to do and accomplish got so much better, a lot more fun this way. 

Planning on the go? Yes!!!  

Once you start gathering supplies to decorate your planner you realize how much you have. 

This is what I put in my bag:
colored pencils
colored pens
gel pens
colored and black sharpies
micron markers
glue stick
and my favorite... gelatos :)

Then after I gather this supplies I remembered I have a whole bunch of stickers I haven't used, I grab a small plastic box that I had and filled it up with:

washi tape
mini stamps
and a stamp pad

I love to collage so I'll be putting images of magazines and printables that I find here and there
maybe in an envelope to stay organized since that's one of my goals this year.

I know there is a lot more supplies you can decorate your journal/planner with
and different ways to organize them
 here is a few ideas I found online to help you and me take on this project :)

I hope you are having as much fun as I am doing this :)

Much Love,

What to Do with All Those Thoughts in Your Head.

Call me crazy but I am always thinking, talking (inside my head) and imagining different things

that I can not get to immediately, like how to use that plastic bottle in my art journal before I recycle it, what to write in my blog, how to do use different art supplies to make a mixed media background, thinking what to read next, what podcast to listen to while cooking, what's that new dinner I can cook, what my next scrapbook layout is going to look like, you name brain doesn't stop. So in order to de-stress, stop that overwhelmed and start using my creativity again I am going to start writing everything down in a colorful, creative and spontaneous way.

When you think about it, all this thoughts in my head means that I am always planning and that's exactly what I am going to do.

I am going to write it all, plan it all, be creative, all in one place.
I am going to start a planner, art journal, hobonichi, whatever you want to call it.

It can be a simple notebook, a pretty journal, just anything that can grab all this thoughts in a creative way. This is going to be the one place where but I'll put there all of my plans, my to do lists, my menus, my creativity, my thoughts, you can imagine the rest and I would like to share it all with you here in my blog, you never know you might benefit from it too :)

I love blogging
I love writing
I love creating
I love sharing
I love helping

So here I am trying to put it all in one place to help me and you out at the same time.

Let's hope for the new year to be more successful in making all our goals a reality.

Much Love,

Believe in Yourself

Believe in Yourself

I made this for a challenge called Trio-Tastic by Simon says stamp blog

For this little piece of art I used 3 things only:

3 watercolors
3 stencils and
3 words

It only took me 10 minutes, but it gave me such a good feeling to do a little art again :)

Thanks for stopping by
