The Studio Yearbook: A Seasonal Guided Journal for Your Creative Life

 

I am so excited to be able to share with you my most trusted studio companion:

The Studio Yearbook!

PS Don’t tell the kittens.

The Story of the Studio Yearbook

In January of 2017, I woke up with a start at 5:00 am with an idea, an idea that got me out of bed and down to the kitchen table for the next several hours pouring it onto page after page after page after page.

What found its way out of my fingertips was a guided journal, a journal that pulled together core studio practices, a journal that would hold in one place inspirations, insights and celebrations, a journal that would be fun to create and also serve as a beautiful, tangible reminder of a creative life.

I worked with it for a year. One Journal for winter. One for spring. One for summer. One for fall. I invited an alpha team to try it. Then a beta team. Finally, after a last round with some enthusiastic cheerleaders. Now the yearbook is ready for you. 

This Season’s Edition of the Studio Yearbook is ready!

I hope it will be your stalwart companion. I hope it will be your guide. I hope it will hold your memories – and encourage you to make beautiful ones.

Most of all, I  hope you will fill it with your creative heart.

Only then will it truly be yours.

The Summer Edition is Here!

The Studio Yearbook is a seasonal guided journal designed to support you in bringing your creativity to life.

All of this in a simple, accessible fill-in-the-blank format that that can take as much or as little time as you want (or have)!


Here’s a short flip-through of my fall yearbook to give you an idea of what this guided journal is like.

The Studio Yearbook – PDF Edition (Summer)

Your Summer Studio Yearbook (June 21 – Sept 21):  You get all the same content as the Print Edition plus the flexibility to print and bind your book to suit your needs!  Plus you get immediate access and save the cost of shipping! You get to choose how to print the PDF, and we suggest you call around and get a price you feel comfortable with. This season’s edition is 144 pages plus a front and back cover. We print the First 100 on 70 lb paper but of course you are free to choose a weight that works best for you. (PS Be sure to have them quote you for a double-sided printing!)

LIVE Q&A: For everyone that purchases the Summer Studio Yearbook, I will be hosting a one-hour live Q&A session on Tuesday, June 26th at 1:00 pm EST,  a few days after the start of the season. This gives you some time to familiarize yourself with the yearbook. If you have questions, you’ve got me right there to help.

Four Instructional Videos: During the week before the Summer Solstice, you will receive four instructional videos to guide you into the seasonal, monthly, weekly and daily creative practices that are central to your Studio Yearbook. It’s a wonderful way to start an adventure!

Facebook Group: Last season’s Studio Yearbook group was dazzled with such wonderful creative ideas and lively enthusiasm that I’ve decided to offer it again.  Not only is it a great resource for shared inspiration and mutual encouragement but it’s also thrilling to watch each yearbook come alive with the signature expression of its creator! You won’t want to miss it.

The Studio Yearbook – Print Edition (Summer) – Sold Out!!

Your Summer Studio Yearbook (June 21 – Sept 21): Over the past year we’ve tested out several formats until we landed on “the one”. Spiral bound so you can flip it around and write easily. A cover heavy enough to give some support when you’re writing but not weigh you down. Printed on 70 lb paper that’s thick enough to handle gel pens, regular markers and even a light coat of paint. Every page is black and white and ready for you to add your own colour, your own way.

  I’m very busy. I work full time, so I don’t really have a lot of time for long-term projects. I keep it by my bed. It’s a really simple format and really flexible. There’s so much you can do with it. And I’m having a great time with it. Julie Kovac

I started to craft a different life because of it.

The best thing I liked about it was Jamie’s warm invitation to make it your own. That is something I jumped on right away.
Dara Dines

Having everything in one place is what really speaks to me about the yearbook! It opens up that space to explore, to really be me, to be as creative as I want to be.

It makes every day more magical. Rosie Grey

I am really excited about this yearbook. I’m not a person that typically does something long term. I’ve tried in the past. But there’s something about this yearbook that’s got me excited.
Julie Kovac

I love the gold stars. That’s actually really fun for me. I think through what did I do today that earned the gold star. It’s a way for me to not be too hard for myself.
Michaela Harkins

I would recommend this to anyone!
