Memory keeping in a Junk Journal | Blog Post by Sanna

Hello! My name is Sanna and I am a guest design team member this month. I live in Sweden, in Scandinavia, with my husband and our two daughters age 7 and 9. I have come to realise that I need to be creative to be happy, and over the years I have tried many different ways; sewing, knitting, painting, crafting, crochet, drawing, lettering and so on.

Packaging Ideas Using Stationery Goods

Hello! How is everyone going? It has been non stop since I came back from my trip to the US and to be honest with you, I don’t think I have yet recovered! Ever since, I’ve been really longing for a good long break. But there is no time for rest, May has been a very busy month for me!  Getting back to my regular routine at school, catching up on paint making, updating the shop - all happening at the same time! I am sure I am not alone, many of you can hear me here! The thing is, life is always going to be busy, that’s what it is about, right? If life is not filled-up with goals...
