In Love with Bible Journaling--WOYWW 386

Happy Wednesday lovely! I hope you are in your happy place. This is mine, and it's even happier with this new cordless glue gun I found at Hobby Lobby! Used a coupon, and was completely delighted the first time I used it and realized it also has a light on it. What!! No cord AND a light? I didn't even know they put lights on glue guns now. So yes, we are in love. I'm doing a page in my bible journal notebook. I also have an actual journaling bible and I'm really enjoying it.
My bible journaling tote
I picked up a craft tote on sale half price, from Paper Studio, at Hobby Lobby, and thanks to inspiration from The Reset Girl on YouTube, I have a dedicated bible journaling tote. It also hold other kinds of journaling. Having my bible journaling supplies, my bibles, notebooks, stamps, stencils, paints, markers, everything all together in one place actually causes me to sit down and do it! I can take it out on the sunporch, take it in the car, I'm amazed. Why didn't I think of this long ago! And I just purchased some downloadable digital art from Illustrated Faith, and getting ready to have fun with that. It's all printed out. And the great thing is, I can print it out as many times as I want.

And, while I'm on a roll, I have a new little ultrasonic cool mist oil diffuser that sits on my craft table. I love having one, it's awesome, it even changes colors, and again, why didn't I get an oil diffuser long ago! My favorite daytime scent combo is lemongrass and peppermint. I feel happy and more energized. I think it works! In fact, I'm finishing the November room in the dollhouse cross-stitch! Not long ago I was behind by two months. But I really loved stitching this little kitchen. So, I should be done with the December room by my birthday! (Nov. 10) That would be cool. I may go back after I'm done, and stitch a couple of my favorite rooms to be little individual pieces to frame.
And lastly, I found the cutest little mini stapler, and I love this little thing, it is very sturdy. I keep another mini stapler I like in the bible journaling tote, so I got this one to just sit on the craft desk, and it even has the little page flag dispenser on top. Cute!
So, after I grab another cuppa coffee, I'll hop around the WOYWW neighborhood for a visit. Cheers and happy Wednesday!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch


  1. Look at you so wonderfully organized. I haven't tried the bible journaling. Yours looks amazing. Thanks for the share about the hot glue gun. I just might be in the market for a new one! Drop on over to my jungle..... I know where most everything is. But, ashamed to say sometimes it is difficult to access. I too delight in seeing how many of our sharing WOYWW have the same things I do. Keep smiling and creating

  2. Wow! You are definitely well organized! I have many friends who Bible Journal but I haven't gotten into it, too many other things going on. Fabulous little glue gun and mini stapler! Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a most blessed day!

  4. That Bible journaling tote is a great idea! I've been trying to get into that too, and it would help a lot to have all of the supplies in one place. Essential oils are wonderful, aren't they? Love your cross-stitch, it's so pretty! Have a good week!

  7. Wow, that craft tote is amazing, especially at a bargain price too. Sometimes it's just good to have somewhere that you can carry all your daily stash in. And the glue gun sounds great too, especially with the little light, jolly useful if you're working in lower light levels. In fact there's not much on your desk that I don't like but your gorgeous cross stitch tops it all off, it's so cute!

  9. Aw man, now you make me want to go buy a tote so I can carry my supplies around. . .and a diffuser too. I think that'll all have to wait. I've been on a shopping frenzy lately. It looks like you've been getting a lot done though, here's hoping the trend continues!
