New Birthday-themed journal page

Guess what?

I made you a cake!

Sort of.

It would be more accurate to say that I've made you a new birthday-themed journal page in which cake features prominently. 

In any event, the end result looks a little something like this:

Not sure what prompted today's page.  The idea has been percolating for days and, as it also simultaneously turns out, I've been needing a little pick-me-up, a little whimsy to balance the scales against the weight of dreary daily challenges.  When I sat down at the computer, this is what emerged.  Which made me feel a whole lot better, actually.  I'm pretty sure it has something to do with living life in colour.  Which is always a good idea.

If you'd like a whimsical confection of a journal page to have on hand when your birthday arrives, you'll find it here (colour-free) and here (colourful).

I sense there are a few more theme-type pages on the horizon.  Most likely, some simple note pages next, and then who knows?

hugs,
Christie

  2. I have a question -- I adore your journal pages, and have downloaded all the colored ones. But, now that I'm getting into art journaling, I think it might be fun to color my own. That being said, is it possible for you to group your past pages into a single downloadable file, rather than having to download each page separately? I know nothing about creating these, so have no idea how much time that would take. Just a suggestion. If not, no biggie -- I can find the link to the download page and get busy! LOL! Thanks for all you do -- it is so greatly appreciated!

    1. Hi Kate! Such a tough question. I really appreciate that you've taken the time to download one set already and I am grateful for your support and kind words. I hope you won't mind jumping over to my Frequently Asked Questions page, which you can link to from my sidebar. I do try to answer that question as best I can at the very end. Best wishes in your journaling. :)

  4. Wow, this is great, especially since I just celebrated my 50th birthday very recently! I think I'll fill in the page retroactively. Thanks so much. :-)

  11. Christie,
    I got my mini book today and it far surpassed what I expected (and I did have high expectations!.. though I do know your work is great). I loved loved loved the note card... and your business card. SO... I was wondering if you would sell those note cards on your Etsy site? I would like a pack of 12 to buy. I am sure that others would buy them too! I will go leave good feedback on Etsy for you right now! Have a great day!

  12. SO happy that you are still sharing pages with us here! Can't wait to see the journals ... and have your pages all printed and ready to delve into when we have our summer break. I envision GIO journal pages, lemonade and music in the background!
