30 Days of Lists, the Final Week

September’s round of 30 Days of Lists has come to a close and I think this may have been my favorite round, yet. I liked the style of list book that I went with and I managed to keep up with the daily prompts and post them each day on Instagram.

The prompts that Amy & Kam gave us were good ones. They were a nice mix of light, fun prompts and others that really made you pause and think. A HUGE thank you to these wonderful ladies for organizing this listing event and for infusing it with their energy, time and time again.

Here is the final week of my Sept 2015 lists.

Thank you and I hope to see you for the next round!

Let’s List! 30 Days of Lists, Day 1

Today is September 1st and we’re kicking off 30 Days of Lists with our first prompt: “What you might have heard about me”.

2015-09-01 10.16.41

I used the “I Am” line by Simple Stories and added some cute washi from my Planner Society kit.

To make listing a little faster I pre-printed the daily prompts onto clear labels and cut numbers into round labels using my silhouette.

 

I’m look forward to seeing everyone’s lists and I’m so excited to be sharing in this with you!

Happy Listing!

Ready, Set, List! September 2015

Hello Listers! Today I’d like to share my list book with you, it’s what I’ll be using come September 1st for the 30 Days of Lists challenge. I’ll also share a peek at the area where I’ll be doing my listing.

This is my 4th round of 30 Days of Lists and I’ve used different base styles, including a handcrafted mixed media list book and a couple of different versions of pocket style scrapbook bases. I have a passion for mixed media, so I really enjoy being able to incorporate that into my listing.2015-08-22 11.53.33

This time I’ve decided to list in my Traveler’s Notebook style planner, using a fusion of scrapbook and mixed media elements, it’s the best of both worlds for me!

2015-08-22 12.04.36

The sweet leather “Pink Lemonade” planner that will house my list book is by Onica Hanby. I highly recommend her shop if you’re looking for a fauxdori. Good quality leather and her attention to detail makes for some gorgeous planners.

2015-08-16 11.09.16

Using a mixed media insert from Yellow Paper House, I decorated the outside of my list book by layering one of my gelli prints, some music sheet paper and a few other painty bits. Journal cards from my stash were added for layering and a couple of other elements that I created with my Silhouette, like the “listing nerd glasses” and a few 30 Lists paper clips finished it off.

2015-08-22 10.56.48

I realize that I’m so very fortunate to have a dedicated art room where I can indulge in my passion for making pretty things. After a grueling work day, I enjoy coming in here to unwind, get my fingers nice & painty, make some lists or just play in my planners.

I recently spent some time prettifying & organizing the desk area in my studio, this is where I’ll be doing the majority of my listing. I set it up so that my most used listing and planning supplies are within easy reach.

One of the main things that I enjoy about 30 Days of Lists, aside from it being tons of fun, is that it’s fast. In just a few minutes I can get a creativity fix to either jump-start my day in the right direction, or help me distress after a long one.

30Lists-Click-Here-to-Get-Started

For this round of listing I have the pleasure of being not only a participant, but a sponsor and affiliate as well. If want to join in on the fun, but haven’t registered yet, there’s still time! Just click on the image above and it’ll take you to the registration page.

Another aspect that I really enjoy about 30 Days of Lists is reading all of your lists and seeing what you create. I’ll be posting my lists to the private Facebook group as well as Instagram and Pinterest, via my blog. I’d love it if you’d follow along!

See you on September 1st!

September 2015 30 Days of Lists Blog Hop

bloghop

September 1st is just around the corner and that means 2 things… my Birthday and 30 Days of Lists. Since they both fall on the same day, that’s cause for celebration!

We’re kicking off the fun today with the 30 Days of Lists Blog Hop!

This is your chance to get to know us sponsors, the ambassadors and even Amy & Kam a little better. It’s also a great opportunity to learn a bit more about 30 Days of lists if you haven’t previously participated.

Whether it’s a quick list, jotted down on a notepad between errands, something more elaborate incorporated into an art journal or scrapbook album, or even something that you put together digitally with a photo editing app on your phone, 30Lists is a very doable challenge to keep up with.

30 Lists is a bi-annual listing challenge that takes place each March and September. All you need is a few minutes each day. It can be so easy to get caught up in life’s frantic pace and forget to take time to sit with our own thoughts. This is a fast and fun way to remedy that. Whether it’s a quick list, jotted down on a notepad between errands, something more elaborate incorporated into an art journal or scrapbook album, or even something that you put together digitally with a photo editing app on your phone, 30Lists is a very doable challenge to keep up with.

If you haven’t already registered, you can do so by clicking on my affiliate link HERE.

For today’s blog hop, Amy & Kam challenged us to create a list using one of the prompts from the March 2011 30 Days of Lists. We’d love to have you join in on the fun. Just select your own list prompt, from the link above, and post it to your blog, Instagram etc, then share your link on the 30 Days of Lists Facebook page, HERE.

Let’s just say that according to my bag, I eat out a lot. 🙂

I decided to go with the “In My Bag” prompt. I will preface this by admitting to not having included the loose change and receipts in my bag, because Yikes! Let’s just say that according to my bag, I eat out a lot. 🙂

imalister-600x400

Hi friends, happy Saturday! Can you believe how quickly the year has flown by? September is right around the corner and you know what that means… it’s almost time for 30 Days of Lists, my favorite listing challenge!

If you’ve been reading my blog or have followed me on social media for some time, you know that I’ve participated in the 30 Lists challenge a few times already and that I absolutely love it. Which is why I’m So Excited to share with you that Art & Whimsy is an affiliate and sponsoring blog of 30 Days of Lists for the September 2015 listing challenge!

Whether it’s a quick list, jotted down on a notepad between errands, something more elaborate incorporated into an art journal or scrapbook album, or even something that you put together digitally with a photo editing app on your phone, #30Lists is a very doable challenge to keep up with.

If you aren’t familiar with 30 Days of Lists, it’s a bi-annual listing challenge that runs for 30 days in March and September of each year. It costs just $10 and that gives you access to the private blog, the private FB group and some other downloadable goodies. It also gives you access to special discounts and maybe even a giveaway or two that are only open to 30 Day Listers! I know of one Awesome giveaway, prizes supplied by Art & Whimsy! Details will be available on the private #30Lists blog once registration is under way!

The two awesome women that make this event happen are Amy & Kam. What they do is provide us with a daily list prompt and then we make of that prompt what we want. There is no wrong way to list.

30Lists-Click-Here-to-Get-Started

As much as I would like to have oodles of time to spend getting my art on, it’s just not always possible. Having this listing challenge is a fun way for me to take 10-15 minutes out of my day to get that creative energy flowing. I enjoy doing it in the morning before I head to the office. I find that it really helps start my morning on a positive note.

Joining in on the fun is easy. Just click on my link above and enter your name and email address to be notified when registration opens. It’s usually August 14th but I hear that it’s going to open up early this year… don’t miss out!

Once you’ve done that and depending on how you’re going to do your listing, perhaps you want to get your base done.

If you’d like to see how I set up some of my past lists, you can see March and September 2014 HERE.

2675a219c2f9f4103d0cfdb02ff4f8e2

I was doing more scrapbooking then, so in March of 2014 I used Project Life cards and created my base to fit right into my scrapbook album.

09f77ec22a62085aae4b8f46e3f9530aIn September of 2014 I was doing a lot less scrapbooking and a lot more mixed media, so I created my base in a mixed media style, but still used journal cards so it would still slip right into my album.

My March 2015 lists can be seen HERE.

2015-02-22 10.23.27

I went with a mixed media base again, but this time I created a book out of tags that I painted printed on with my gelli plate then bound them with my Cinch book binding machine.

2015-02-22 12.45.25

You can read about how I created that base HERE.

I’m not yet sure what I’ll use for the September 2015 round of listing, but I’d better get started; it’ll be here before we know it. I hope you’ll list with me!

xoxo
