Have you seen those beautiful 'creative' journals on Pinterest and Instagram and thought, "I can make that!" but weren't sure what you need or how to get started? Maybe you wondered about binding or how to add pages?

Every maker's style (and reasons for making) are so different - leading to completely unique outcomes. What's your style and/or reason for making?

Styles and reasons often change over time, too. Are you experiencing changes in yours, or still looking for your own unique creative voice? (It took me a few frustrating years before I found mine.)

Join me as I share tips, tools, and my favorite materials for making 'life story' journals from scratch in this mini course & workshop designed for new journal makers. We'll talk about the what, how, and why of journal making as we explore, experiment, and discover together.

What you can expect:

  • easy-to-follow instructions
  • supply, material, and tool suggestions
  • lifetime access as long as the course exists
  • a creative community and interactive sessions if you choose the workshop format

Make your own life story journal!

Hi, I’m Robin!

... a Navy veteran and 27-year educator who stumbled into mixed-media art in 2015, creative journaling in 2019, and never looked back.

I believe finding our truest selves can be both fun & "messy" (literally & figuratively!). I also believe being inspired, informed, and empowered is the {only} way to be.

As I shift from public Education to teaching online through my veteran-owned business, you'll find courses designed to inspire, inform and empower - infused with the creative process every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts when you enroll (and when it opens). Finish when you'd like. It's completely self-paced and on-demand. Your pace. Your schedule... You decide when you start and finish.

How long do I have access to the course?

After enrolling, you have access to the course as long as it exists.

Do I need any special supplies or skills?

Rarely and no - Use what you have first! Take a look at my basic supply list for suggestions to get started. Beyond that, the sky's the limit.

Need special skills? Noooo! We're going to jump in, play, practice, and make things up as we go along.

What if I'm unhappy with the course?

Eeek! I don't want that to happen and believe you'll love the mini learning experience loaded with not-so-mini fun, inspiration, and information.
