I thought I’d share with you some of the highlights from the first week or so of my British Craft House January Instagram Challenge entries … the parts that are about me and my creative process, and my own inspiration.
For this, my first blog of 2022, I thought that I would share my end of year journal entry with you.
I hope that by being open and allowing you an insight into the sorts of things that come up for me when I write in my journal, I will encourage you to pick up your pen, grab a notebook (or a beautiful hand bound book created by yours truly!!), and journal it out … and maybe find a window into yourself.
As a small business owner, it appears that I have to start thinking about Christmas in July if I’m going to get all my ducks in a row for the festive season. (I kid you not, “Christmas in July” is an actual thing!) I also have to start marketing my Christmas wares on the 14th of September. According to the marketing gurus, this is the magic date that people start thinking about Christmas. (Who are these people that start their Christmas shopping in September?! Because it’s certainly not me!!! September still counts as Summer as far as I’m concerned!)
When you write a journal every day, when you show up at the page even when you don’t “feel” like it, but you do it anyway, when you pick up the pen and you just get started, when you do all that, then the words come … and then the truths come.
You get to admit what your dreams are, what your desires are, who I want to be, the life I want to live.
Redheadwondering Hand Bound Books exists to provide women with beautiful, unique hand bound books; books that encourage them to write down their own truths.
My greatest wish is to create beautiful hand bound books that make women feel special, that make them feel that their words really are worth it.
