Awesome Ladies Daily Pages Challenge

I love my Daily Pages. I  may take a break from them from time to time but I know it’s a little crafty goodness I can dive into at any time and not feel behind.
For example, I haven’t created a little book in months but for September  I’m back doing my pages, Monday to Friday and enjoying it.

It’s somewhere I can create, practice techniques, just have some craft fun and not stress about it being ‘perfect’. Some of my favourites are nothing more than some washi & a quote card, a quote card and some word stickers. stamping, you get the idea. It’s the home of my Currently cards and my Thursday 3 lists. It’s the place I chuck my favourite quotes or things I see on Instagram.

You can check out my Daily Pages tag.

Daily Pages – January 2020

I’m loving creating my daily pages again. It’s my little 5-10 minutes of creativity a day…. that sometimes ends up with me getting in a creative burst and creating lots more. I may not do it every day but I have managed to do most days so far.

For Vol 1 I created my own book using some old Urban Lily paper for the cover and some 100gsm paper on the inside.

Instead of sharing each book as I finish it, I thought I might share my pages at the end of the month. On to January.

A book that takes its time

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

The winter book for the Crafty Ass Female Patreon Book Club (omg that’s a mouthful) is A Book That Takes Its Time. A Unhurried Adventure in Creative Mindfulness. It’s brought out by the same people who do Flow Magazine and I’d say it’s a bit of a must have for paper lovers. 218 pages of gorgeous quotes, illustrations, articles and a tonne of cute paper goodies.

I’m super excited about this book, as I’ve been lusting over Flow magazine for quite some time but never bought one. A quick flip through and I was like, I need to buy a second copy as I don’t want to rip any of it out BUT I have and I’m really looking forward to getting creative with it.

So over the next month or so I’ll be back with my thoughts or just to share a quote or a project I’ve created using something from the book.

Want to get your own copy? You can buy it here on Amazon (it’s the cheapest I could find it in Australia)

Book of Me 2018

The theme for the Awesome Ladies Project for 2018 is Book of Me. I’m loving this so far. I’ve gone with a 6×8 album this year to give me a bit more room that last years 4×4.

So far this year I’ve been using Kristin’s Currently cards a lot. I love these and it makes it super easy to document what’s going on in my life.

My cover and January pages

February was all about Currently. My 4 weeks of Currently Friday. I’ve done a bit of journaling on the back of each cards to note important events that took place each week.

I turned 40 at the end of January so documented that

Gardening has been a big part of my life lately so it got documented too.

I’ve got a couple of more Currently stories to document so I’ll share them next time.

My Details: Citizenship Edition

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared here. Life has been busy which sadly means not much time for creative pursuits.

Anywho, Kristin of rukristin and Megan of The Nerd Nest have created the next instalment of their awesome workshop My Details.

This round is all about Citizenship.

MyDetails: Citizenship Edition encourages you to tell the story of who you are.

The story of you is also a story of where you are from, where you live, your culture, and who you are as a citizen. With this workshop, you’ll document the details of yourself as a community member (whether it be national, regional, or local) as well as how the details of your culture/society impact your life. No matter what your citizen-story looks like, this workshop will help you document the details that are most meaningful to you.

Whether you’re a blogger, a mini book maker, an art-journaler, a scrapbooker, or any other creative or wannabe-creative person, we’ve got the best ideas to make sure you are telling YOUR story and documenting YOUR details in your memory keeping!

When you register you’ll get access to twice weekly prompts in your inbox, and you might see a familiar face Winking smile If you’re interested, check out this page.

I’m looking forward to creating some pages and adding them to an album about me.

ALP 2016 – week 12

Skipping forward a few weeks and sharing the first of my creative team time pages. I’ll be sharing the other pages prior to this (weeks 6 to 11) in coming weeks – as I get the finished and photographed.

The prompt for this week was What makes you laugh?

Awesome Ladies Project 2016 - Week 12

My little guilty pleasure when I want a giggle – cat memes and videos.
Mostly a digital page with some stickers and a word tile.
