It’s very nearly a year since I first had the idea for the Moments Journal, and a few months now since it’s been out in the world and being used by people who bought copies through supporting my Kickstarter campaign (thank you! - I can’t keep saying that enough!), so I thought it was time for a bit of an update.
First of all, and with great delight, I’m utterly thrilled to share - if you haven’t seen me shouting about it all over social media already - that the Kickstarter campaign to launch the Moments Journal has been a success! Your support and pledges raised enough money to pass the funding target with time to spare, so the first print run of the journals is going ahead and I hope to have them winging their way around the world very soon!
I’ve been so busy working on and talking about the Moments Journal recently that I haven’t shared any of my personal projects for ages. It’s actually been quite nice to keep these things to myself and have something to do that’s separate from my work and business, but I’ve shared a couple of photos on Instagram that got some really lovely reactions so I thought I’d talk about a couple in more detail here too.
Hello everyone! Today is a chance to meet another of my creative online friends - the gorgeous - inside and out - Lauren Barber. Lauren and I first connected online before meeting in person as we live fairly close to each other, it also turns out we were at the same school but didn't know each other then. She's a truly multi-passionate creative and such a joy to be around, but I'll let her tell you more about herself and her creative life...
Since last I wrote about the Moments Journal some things have changed, so it's time to bring you up to date.
Don't panic, the journal is still happening, but it's evolved from where it was and now feels a great deal closer to becoming a real life hold in your hands paper creation. I've made some tweaks myself as I've continued to use the process, and am also grateful for the feedback of several lovely testers you gave me really valuable thoughts about how they found using it and adjustments they'd prefer to make it even better.
Hello everyone! Today is a chance to meet another of my creative online friends - this month it's the colour-loving and rainbow-tastic Sarah Coey! Sarah's art literally lights up my Instagram feed as well as sharing snippets of her life in Scotland. I'll let her tell you more about herself and her creative life...
