Wild Woman Journal Page by Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont

MonikaI heard about a book called Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés a few years back from my friend Denise Daffara, but than life was happening in the mean time and I never picked it up to read it. Then my friend Lisa took me to see a beautiful singer called Snez performing at a house concert. I bought her CD and fell in love with her music. I also read her blog and learnt that one of her songs was inspired by that book I had wanted to read! This is the song I love!

So I did read the book ! And I really liked it, it’s inspiring. I especially like the old legends she refers too!

And it amazes me how the  things which we should have or see or hear are finding a way to come to us. Sometimes it just takes bit longer. And it’s amazing how people inspire each other every day.

Thank you to all of you beautiful people around me for inspiration, love, encouragement. Hope I can do the same for you .

So here she is the Wild woman in me.

Becoming a Butterfly – An art journal page by Robyn Wood

Hello! It’s Robyn with you today sharing an art journal page using some brand new Dina Wakley stamps.  I tend to love anything insect themed, so when these cute stamps came in they were in my hands so fast!  I love the size of the images – perfect for cards, tags or art journaling.  This page comes together quite quickly once the butterflies are stamped, coloured and trimmed – I love how the sparkly butterflies gently pop out of the page.  You can easily substitute with different colours or maybe use a different type of background all together!

Don’t forget that as designers we love sharing our knowledge of products sold in the store, so if there is something you would like to know how to use or a technique that you would love to learn – drop us a line and we will see what we can do. Personally, I love a challenge and am always happy to play with something new, in the interests of education of course! (really I just like to buy ‘new’ products)
