Coronavirus Quarantine Inspiration

December Caravan
Happy Sunday friends! I hope that this post finds you doing well! Today I wanted to share a quote that I shared with my instagram community for this time. 

As a lady who was forced into "self-isolation/social distancing" due to multiple illnesses for several years (you can read more of my personal journey on my personal blog, Caravan Sonnet, by clicking HERE) I learned very quickly how important it is to find inspiration (especially during the painful and difficult years of being completely bedridden). 

Quotes and knowledge of people who did incredible things during hard times (like this one above) are some of my favorites to inspire me during this very difficult season!

What are some of your favorite inspiring quotes right now?

Happy International Women's Day

Happy International Women's Day!

Irena Sendler is one of my heroes! Her story of courage in the face of horror has had such an impact on my life! I see the same courage in my beautiful mom and am so blessed by her love.

I am celebrating deeply this day of the women I love and those around the world who are stopping injustice and changing our world.

Who are some of your women heroes?

These junk journals will measure no more than 3x4 and most will measure the size of this precious Snow White Junk Journal: 2 x 2.5.

I found this adorable and popular vintage Snow White Golden Book in an antique book store back in the early part of winter of 2019 and was so excited as it was in excellent condition and I knew it would make a special Junk Journal.

It took some time to figure out the exact sizing and specifications for these precious little books and I loved the creative process of working to find this! Now that I have gotten the exact size down that works well for me I am so excited to share more of these that are going to be coming to this section of the shop soon!

Another thing that I wanted to do was to offer junk journals that were in my shop that were affordable at all different price points. This junk journal is less than $10! It is truly the perfect gift for a loved one!
December Caravan
This Mini Vintage Snow White Junk Journal contains approximately 25 pages/tags of quality and beautiful scrapbook paper, adorable vintage and modern embellishments and ephemera, and pretty surprises, this tiny Junk Journal will create a treasured keepsake for a lifetime and can be used in a special moment throughout the year or on a trip to Disney.

I was showing this junk journal to a friend and she said it would be the perfect present for a newly engaged bride-to-be and I loved that idea! What a fun idea to record special little notes from the engagement season in this junk journal
December Caravan
What I love about Snow White (and Disney in general) is that the stories are timeless for dreamers to dream and wish in all different ways. No matter how you would use this junk journal it would be precious. *smiles*

Shop Re-Opening

December Caravan
And the shop has RE-OPENED!! 

Yesterday, the shop re-opened with all NEW items and beautiful journals in all different categories! You can go directly to the shop HERE!

THANK YOU so much for all of your support, sweet messages, kind words, and purchased items already!! These months have been so difficult and your understanding of taking time away from the shop during this time of grief, learning to put one foot in front of another, and transition has been a beautiful blessing.

This time has allowed me to process where to go with the shop. After 7 years it was time to evaluate and in doing so I fell in love with creating in a whole new way. I am SO excited to show a new season with the shop and share all of the creations now and what are coming!

Thank you for rejoicing with me and all of your support as we embark on this new season!

Happy Monday friends and thank you again for all of your support!!
