stamped art journal

creative journals 001

I had the day off last week due to a doctor’s appointment, so I took the morning to be a little creative.

I usually art journal while at work, so I don’t have the tools available to really stamp or sew, so this was a nice change for me and my art journal habits!

I recently bought a set of date stamps, which are quickly turning into one of my favourite elements to use on my pages… So handy!

I remember as a kid how days used to seem so long, and months (especially the summer months without school) were forever… but my mom said then, “Enjoy it while it lasts because time goes faster when you’re older.” Of course, my 7 year old self, the one dying to be an adult, couldn’t understand or appreciate that advice. Only now , as I watch the days and months fly by, do I really get what she meant back then.

School is about to start again, the halls at work are about to become loud and packed with 20 year old energy and all I can wonder is, crap, where the hell did my summer go?
