Bible Journaling {the Gospels}

Hello friends!Β 

When I made my last Bible journaling post, I had to save the Gospels for another time since I didn’t have room. So here I am with verses from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John!

If you’re new here, I am going through the Bible and copying down my favorite verse or passage from each chapter in (hopefully) pretty lettering. So far I’ve filled 15 small journals. In these posts I feature a few of my favorite pages. If you like hand lettering, word art, or need some encouraging Bible verses today, read on. ❀️

Bible Journaling + Hand Lettering Inspo

Hello friends!

This is the last post before I take a break for the wedding + honeymoon, ah! More on that at the end of the post. Anyway, I decided to catch you guys up on some recent Bible journaling, and then realized that… I haven’t made one of these posts for a LONG time, oops. Scratch the “recent” part.

For years now I’ve been hand lettering my favorite verse or two from each chapter of the Bible as I read through it. I’ve made it to the book of Acts so far, but today we’ll just go through some of my favorite pieces from Daniel through Malachi.

Whether you’re here for the Bible verses or the hand lettering inspiration, I hope you enjoy this collection of journaling!

An Enchanting Woodland Bridal Shower

Hello friends!

Last week my matron of honor and my family pulled off an amazing surprise bridal shower for me! I knew there was going to be a shower, but I had no idea it was going to be a picnic in the woods. They secretly cleared a path into the forest and filled it with beautifully decorated tables and heaps of flowers. I had a wonderful time being with my friends and enjoying all the loveliness my family worked so hard to create. ❀

I wanted to share party inspiration and pictures with you guys, even though I didn’t take any of them. Credit to my Aunt Andrea and my friend Erin who used Aria’s camera to take pictures that Aria then edited. Read on for an exciting announcement ( πŸ˜‰ ), cottagecore aesthetics, stunning bouquets, a “grazing table,” cute fairy gardens, and a happy Allison.

I Finished My Art Journal! {Memory Keeping Inspiration}

Hello, friends!

I finally finished the art journal/scrapbook/diary/creative thing that I’ve been working on for the past 1 1/2 years! And boy is it a full book. The journal started out in a regular, rectangle shape and now it’s more of an overstuffed oval. :’DΒ 

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite spreads I’ve made! We’re gonna go through some pretty paper collages, very random paper ephemera (like a cough drop wrapper), flyers, nametags, and lots of written memories. ❀ I hope you guys enjoy this peek into my creative journal!
