Having a Little Fun


Hello, my friends!

Just a little silliness to share with you today.  I actually hesitated showing you this side of me…


…the goofier, definitely more colorful…absolutely eccentric side of me.


But, then I thought—Why not?!  We all have different sides of ourselves to share, I think…


A little bit of whimsical musing into the future, brought on by this fabulous Victorian-age graphic…isn’t it wonderful?!


As I’m writing this, I’m reminded of a great quote I read this morning from a VERY goofy & eccentric person—actor/director Mel Brooks…

“If you’re quiet, you’re not living.  You’ve got to be noisy, colorful and lively!”

I think he’s right—some of the time!


The other, softer, quieter side of me will most likely come out to play next time…


*****P.S.!  The winner of my “Creating with Vintage Typography” CD giveaway is “Auntiejenni”!  Please email me with your address & I’ll get that right out to you!*****

  1. Congrats to the winner and I love this post!! Wishing you a lovely week, Xo, Ashley

  2. Absolutely no apology needed! You have a fun side and a PERSONALITY! There are times when I want to take the pulse of a person to find out, really, "Is there anybody in there?" If you don't let your child out, who will?


  3. Amen to the quote! Love your creativity in this post! Love to see the silliness/fun side of people! It ribs off and it's a good thing! Love you to pieces Julie! xo

  4. So happy you shared that side Julie!

  5. So FUN! I LOVE the fun/funky handwriting! Have a great week! HUGS!

  6. Love it! Such a fun journal page! Thanks for sharing, and wishing you a beautiful week! xo Heather

  7. This sweet story is reminding me of Little Women. I wonder which of us would be more like Jo...Your pages remind me so much of myself...Smiles...Renee

  8. Words cannot express how much I love this. You keep it up Mama - you've inspired me!

  9. I just love your journal pages, Julie. So fun! I'm still only thinking about doing it. I tried last Thursday to get one going and felt like everything I was doing was just not going the way I wanted it to so I gave up. Shall keep thinking and maybe one day actually get it going.

    I was just saying to a friend the other day that our wild and crazy days are over and that the more subdued quiet gatherings we now have are so pleasurable.

    Have a great day! Tammy

  10. What a fun post Julie, it's adorable!!!
    Hugs~~~ Daphne

  11. The writings you do on these pages is so whimsical and fun.
    I LIKE seeing this side of you

  12. Hi sweet friend...your work is amazing!
    Do you have all your girls home? I bet your summer is in full swing. Enjoy!!!! xoxoxo

  13. So glad to see your wilder, sillier side! Makes me want to create something like that to show that side of me that others don't always see.

    Beautiful artwork!

  14. Hey pretty lady,

    Thanks for commenting while I was down, it means a lot. I like this side of you, and I always suspected it was there......I mean you picked the bumble bee sculpt and he's pretty silly. Are these collages, cards or plaques?


  15. Fun pages and they are still filled with wonderful thoughts and ideas. Each time I see your newest pages, I want to pick up a pen and start doodling.

  16. Julie, I am so enjoying your artistry. This journal is wonderful. I had to giggle at your Anna's doll post about the "eyes". The teeth would have me sleeping with my head under the covers! Such a lovely post, as always. Elizabeth

  17. How fun...love this side of you Julie!

  18. I love this journal! I've never thought of making a "wish" journal but this has inspired me!

  19. An enjoyable post Julie...We can all be a little eccentric at times.
    Fabulous Victorian-age graphic ~ I love it!
    Have a wonderful weekend ~ enjoy ;D
