“Christmas Stories” Featured in Somerset Studios!

Times have been difficult, for sure, since the unexpected loss of my husband last month, so it is nice to have small blessings and surprises such as having my “Christmas Stories Heirloom Journal” featured in Somerset Studio Magazine this month!  I hope you get a chance to pick up a copy – there are so many wonderful holiday ideas inside this gorgeous issue!


I’ve created an online class showing you how you can make your own “Christmas Stories Heirloom Journal” – and filled it full of almost 10 hours of video instruction and colorful pictures and pdfs!

You can also use this class to create any type of keepsake art journal – not just one for the holidays!

There are two ways you can access this online class . . . you can go to my Online Classroom Site HERE and purchase forever access OR you can join Brave Girl University and enjoy my class, plus hundreds of others for a low monthly subscription fee. Either way, I hope you join me and learn to create a place to keep your own Christmas Stories!

    I’m so happy to see your post this morning, dear sweet Lorraine. Love your altered book – it is so beautiful and so Christmas. Will get your class as soon as possible. Is that a "Journey’s Through Bookland" book? I have two sets, one for my son and the other for my daughter. I want so badly to cut out the pictures but value the stories even more. For now, I just practice drawing by looking at the wonderful pictures inside. When I was little, my Dad read to me each night from this set of books. My favorite was Tom, the Waterbaby, Vol. 2. I also loved the poetry inside and memorized many of them. Your altered version holds your own stories inside making the book even more valuable. Sending a hug and a peaceful Good Morning to you.
