Word Tickets

I have a collection of #wordtickets that I have been adding to for decades. (Literally. I have been making these since I was a teenager and now I’m old AF 😂)

I have moved them from apartment to house to apartment to house.

I have moved them from a lunchbox to a pretty zippered bag and finally they live in this upcycled spaghetti sauce jar that I glitterified. I love that I can see them in the corner of my desk. I use them almost daily. The #wordtickets idea is not mine. I got it from a book called poemcrazy by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge that I have owned since 1996 and have reread it at least 100 times. I love her writing, her style, everything about this book. That is not an affiliate link. I make zero dollars if you buy her book. I just wanted to shout out an amazing author that has had a huge impact on my life.

I have used the #wordtickets to write poems mostly but lately I found another use for them.

Laini Taylor posted about her #atticnotebook on Instagram the other day:

“The idea is that you freewrite every day in a notebook without ever looking back or reading what you wrote, and you finish the notebook and STILL don’t read it for at least a month. And when you do–at least when I did this before–I remembered almost none of it and it was like discovering a notebook in an attic, hence the name.”

I was massively inspired by this! I decided to start using my #wordtickets to fill an #atticnotebook. About a month from now you will start seeing the results of this. I plan on posting the raw fiction straight from my notebook with no editing. I will include the original prompts as well.

Happy Planner add on: Watercolor Paper

I love Franken Planning!

In my very first happy planner, I took outdated calendar pages and mixed media’d all over them to make backgrounds for art journaling.

I’ve been using them as backgrounds for lettering practice.

But I wanted some heavier paper in my planner for Watercolor play.

First I traced an old divider as a template.

Then I cut it out & used the happy planner punch to add it to my Franken Planner 😍

Ta-Da! 💃🏻

I did it!

The Dragon Deals the Cards

In the middle of December, right before Christmas, I took a giant leap towards my dreams. I did the scary thing. I indie published my first book. It was terrifying and exhilarating. If you would like to check it out, you can find it on Amazon HERE

Thank you to everyone who has been so tremendously supportive of my dream of being a writer. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
