I'm big on journals. I always have a personal one going and I have a journal for each of my babies too. I had a pregnancy journal. A dream journal. I've kept separate creative ideas/business journals a few times also, always at the exciting start of something big. Like now.
Ideas whirling around so fast I can barely catch them. I had a stack of plain pocket journals and dug around in my stamping stash to find just the right image to capture what I've been feeling. What I want to accomplish. Houses! Of course!
I used a stamp I carved when I was house obsessed and first started selling the wooden ones. I sold my first set during my first month on Etsy so I consider them one of my founding designs. I still love houses, they are my all time favorite design motif. What better symbol to adorn a book to jot down my creative hopes and ideas to build upon. To build.
I couldn't stamp just one of course. Stamping is more fun when you can see multiples in different colors. The brown version stays with me and the rest will be given away with future orders.
Yes, I said future orders. I do plan on returning to Etsy but the details...only the book knows for now.
