In Which We Set Up a Flower Truck

Hello, my friends!

Ah, I think you guys are really going to enjoy the pictures today. Remember Dad’s aesthetic mint green truck from my birthday post? Turns out it makes a wonderfully eye-catching flower truck! Mom has been growing so many flowers this year that we have too many to display ourselves, so she started a little flower stand at the end of our road!

One day we hope to sell flowers at a farmer’s market or in a better location since we’re kinda in the middle of nowhere, but it’s been fun letting people pick up the lovely flower bouquets Mom makes for now. Enjoy some cheerful, summery pictures!

The Art of Memory Keeping {Art Journal Inspiration}

Hello, my friends!

Do you ever collect random bits like brochures from trips, pressed flowers from your garden, and stickers you got in a letter, and then not know what to do with them? There’s a word for that stuff: ephemera. And there’s a place to put it: in a journal!

Instead of throwing it away or keeping it in a messy heap in a closet, I love preserving those memories in one book. I’ve been art journaling (or junk journaling or scrapbooking, depending on who you ask) for a couple years now and I absolutely love going back and looking through old entries.

If that sounds fun but you don’t know where to start, keep reading! Today I’m going to give you guys a peek into my own art journal to give you inspiration for creating your own. If you enjoy artsy stuff, you can make your journal a lot fancier and prettier than mine. If you don’t, you can simply stick in ephemera and photos and write a bit about them. It’s totally up to you.

Okay, enjoy this little dose of journaling inspiration!
