A short post to say that in addition to the Junk Journal challenge I have a Travelling Journal sign up going on over on my Facebook Group. You can read the full instructions over there and sign up to a UK or US circle. Unfortunately for this challenge you must be a member of the Facebook Group.
SIGN UP INSTRUCTIONS: Each person sends off a notebook with one completed page and a signed message page on the back of it or next to it. There will be a posting date each month the first being August 20th to send to the next person on the list (numbered) and eventually it will get back to the first. Each month you will have a new book and will complete a new page then post again on the 20th of each month. SIGN UP BY 23RD JULY.
How It Works: Each person sends off a journal page in a book they have bought, we would each send off a journal on the 20th of each month. I will put together a list of who sends to who. It carries on until the journal has been round the circle and in the end we each get the original journal sent back to us with an entry from each person. Each circle will have 6 people in the circle, so will run till January 20th. We can have as many circles as sign up.
Please state in the group if you are not from the UK so we can see if there is enough interest for a US or Canada or Australian circle.
Hope to see you there,
Hi all, just a quick round up of what I have been up to over the end of term school holidays...aww, it's so lovely to have a break from work and so nice to be able to catch up on my planners, creative journaling, smash books, art and blog. I really have been using the break for a bit of me time... the marking can wait. I can't believe it is Easter already, where is time going? Crazy!
ART JOURNALING GROUP CHALLENGES:
If you missed the post about the new Art Journaling Group you can see it here or you can join the group directly here - https://www.facebook.com/groups/KerrymayMakesAMess
There is quite a bit going on in the group. We took part in the first group challenge last week on Tea Bag Art. You can see my results of that above and pop in to the group to see the creations the lovely members made... they are awesome! The hardest part of this challenge for me was that I don't like tea. No, not just don't like it, I hate it, hate the smell and hate touching wet tea bags. It certainly was a challenge.
We are now on to challenge 2 which takes inspiration from acrylic fluid painting and drawing circles. If you're up for the challenge then pop on over and share your creativity.
The group also has places you can share your work and is a place you can go to relax, chat or get inspiration or ask for help.
Above is a couple of new pages in my art journal for the 2nd group challenge, it's a bit of a 'creative mess' so hopefully I will have a go at a better one this weekend (after I have done at least 'some' of my marking before I go back to work (hahaha). The second image is a page from my smash book, which I love. I received some gorgeous washi tape and ephemera from the UKPA group on Facebook as part of their Wishes post, so have put it to good use. I am on a No Spend on planner, art or stationery of any kind from now until 22nd May (I know, I know, violin please and a huge dose of willpower thrown my way). See more of my Smash Book pages here.

A Note From Kelly - *Just a note to anyone interested in buying one of the mystery kits...
The 'extras' each month will be different but there will always be 5-7 sheets of stickers which have a design on exclusive to the mystery kits so once they're gone they're gone!
The value of the contents will always be more than the cost of the kit as well :)
**May & June kits are available in the shop for pre-order now and will ship on the 5th of the corresponding month xx
So what have you been up to? Any art? Planning? Or just enjoying the run up to Easter? I have no children myself, but can imagine it's not a time for getting much me time if you have.

Hi all, so excited, with the new news. I have a set up an Art Journaling Group on Facebook - Kerrymay._.Makes a Mess please do pop over and join in the creative fun.
A lot of people on Facebook in the planning community were looking for an art journaling group to share their creations, tips, posts etc so I have created one. Most of the others online were for experts and we wanted a little place where we could all learn and get inspiration from each other, without the limits of lots of rules. There will be freebies, have threads to share weekly creations and threads to share blogs and journaling videos. There will also be tutorials and challenges each month or week and lots of other bits n bobs. Hope to see you there.
