Classic Amy Joanne

Create Art & Curate Your Home

I’m addicted, I just can’t stop.

Creating Artful Journals that is.

Can I let you in on a little secret? I wasn’t a fan of journaling….. until I was.

And as with everything I do in life….it became all or nothing ~ a passion.


While creating during a Class for our Creative Christmas Keepsake Journal a fellow Creative asked ‘what happens when our journal is full?‘ ~ my answer, ‘we create another one‘.

It also became an answer to those that love to paint/pencil but say ‘I just have no room for anymore stuff‘ ~ I say fill up a single book with 48 new paintings… heirloom to be.

Yes, an answer for every question.


Our newest Journal is the

‘My Cottage Life’ Keepsake Journal

Paint & Pencil Art ~ with a keepsake journal’ers heart

created with acrylics & colored pencil

created with pages of home-life around the Cottage

created with pockets on the back pages to fill with recipes, family cards, snippets of paint colors and fabrics, photos of friends, or even seed packets too.

There are several ways to enjoy creating our newest Journal ~ by a monthly Zoom class with a recording thru our new ‘Gatherings’ or by a self-guided pattern purchase.

There are a few things to gather to prepare your Journal ~ learn more about them thru our Keepsake Journal Tab (found here) ~ scroll to the bottom for our newest journal.

See our Zoom Gathering Schedule (here) beginning on June 22, 2023.

Purchase a seat with pattern (here).

or purchase a Pattern (here).

We’re just getting started ~ enjoy your own page with a secret password created especially for you on this website ~ with all sorts of little extras to come….book markers, ribbons and cover ideas to name a few.

Creative Time is time well spent ~ join us for some Creative Time thru our ‘Gatherings‘ ~ something for everyone!

…and I promise no drawing stick figures skills needed either.

Gather with us, Let’s Create Together.
