Baby Boy Junk Journal

Someone requested me to make a Junk Journal as a gift for a babyshower. I already had pre-made some small books with different papers. I choose the book that was most appropriate for a baby boy.

I also looked for different pictures, smaller pieces of paper, tags, tickets, rub-ons and cards.

How to make your own Aquarelle Watercolour Pallet

 

I love working with aquarelle watercolours. I have found a lot of paints and colours in tubes in a couple of garage sales. But I noticed that I never used those paints. That’s why I wanted to have them in a palette, so I could go and play more with them. A friend saw my palette and asked me to make her one. I thought that would be a great project for a new blog. The picture above is the new palette I made her, and the last pictures of this post show my own and much older palette.

Music Therapy and different guitars

Multiple Instruments

Being a music therapist, I love using a lot of different musical instruments. Buying and having a lot of instruments can be very expensive. That’s why I love going to garage-sales, thrift-shops, flea markets and so on to buy my instruments.

This way I have already gotten quite a nice collection of old, modern, strange and interesting instruments.

I love to let the clients play the “unknown” and “strange” instruments. With the not so expensive instruments I don’t have to be afraid for damage. And I am very careful with the more expensive instruments.
