Step 9 So now we are ready to collect the papers we will use in the journal.

Taking Part In The EHARTS Creator Showcase

Hello, Just wanted to pop on quickly today to share some exciting news. This week I joined the Patreon of Emily Harvey Art. I find her inspiring and enjoy watching her vlogs and following her Instagram, which is always so bright and uplifting.

A Week Of Firsts!!

Hello, It's been a week of firsts this week. I uploaded my first unboxing video earlier this week and today I did my first 'Reel'!  It was a very basic reel of this journal and not in the same league as the others on there, but I did it and I'm so pleased with myself. Hopefully I will get more confident and can make some more, I have a few ideas. So if you follow me on INSTAGRAM you can see my journey through the world of Reels.  And as if that wasn't enough I also joined Tik Tok! I thought...
