Get Started With Art Journaling for $10

A super cool post from Nicole Seitler on the simple supplies you need to get started art journaling. Getting started with art journaling = awesome!  You have no excuses left.  It's time to start an art journal!

Canvas Necklace DIY

If I may be so bold as to call myself awesome, check out this video of me and Christine Urias (of Scrap Time) making the artful canvas necklaces from this DIY post.  It's a long video, but there's plenty of fun patter and good information.

Electronic Bookplates

I read this DIY on Design Sponge and immediately made my own!  It's both a beautiful and practical idea with a bit of artistic flair!  I think you'll agree that that is a super awesome combination!

And finally, an **awesome** giveaway!
