Hello, everyone! Long time no post! Lol
I have an awesome School Themed Journal to share with you today! This lovely school journal is made by Lori (Just a Girl From the Bay)
It's full of pockets, ephemera, photo and journaling space, and more. She used an old paper collection and made a themed Journal with it. This is a great idea for those who want to use their paper but have no idea what to use it on! Turn it into a Journal!
Take a look at the video for a detailed flip through. Enjoy!

Don't feel bad if you haven't made one yet, or you only have a couple. I started crafting out of a shoe box. Now, I have a collection of items that keep me more that busy. If you enjoy crafting, or just want to start we have a huge community over on Facebook! The group Junk Journal Junkies has kept me sane as well as helped me to find a place to belong. Being a part of a huge community of women and men (all over the world) who enjoy the same thing as me has been amazing! I hope to continue crafting, inspiring and meeting new people to share with!
Huge thank you to Yvonne (Creator of Junk Journal Junkies) for making such an amazing community possible! And thank you to the Admin who help keep the group functioning and growing! You've all been such good friends and I am so grateful to have met you all!

Welcome to our regular featured artist post. Today I'd like to share Fiona's story with you. Fiona is a very active member on the Junk Journal Junkies group and has shared some wonderful junk journals with us.
A girlfriend first introduced Fiona to the fabulous craft/hobby of scrapbooking around 2007. She was ill at the time and wanted to start creating memories for the kids to keep...something they could always cherish and look back on with fond memories.
Fiona began making journals about 12 months ago. She says she has made more for other people, than for herself. But she hopes to make one for each of her 4 children and use them as scrapbook journals.
Fiona is a huge Jane Austen fan and loves the Regency Era. She also makes Regency Era Stove Pipe and Soft Poke bonnets. Crafting to her, is a way of expressing herself as the person 'Fiona', so her children will know who she was, not just the mother, wife, friend, sister they see her as on a daily basis...leaving behind a footprint has become very important to her.
Below there are some photos of one of Fiona's favourite junk journal projects and her Regency Era Stove Pipe and Soft Poke bonnets. You can find more of Fiona's gorgeous work on her youtube channel here

Valarie states that her crafting is a creative outlet that she needs, and she usually has one or more projects going at a time. Recently, Valarie has become disabled and says that making journals passes the time for her and helps her cope with the huge changes in her life. One craft that Valarie would love to try is both traditional rub booking and cutwork. If you would like to visit Valarie's Etsy store, the link is below. Thank you Valarie for being an inspiration to members of the group.
