Through the Garden Gate Junk Journal

For this journal, I envisioned bright, cheerful colors and a real sense of being in the garden. My friend, Emma, works at an adorable gift boutique called Through the Garden Gate, so I adopted the name for my Junk Journal, and made a garden gate for the first page. Even before starting the book, I knew I wanted the little white picket fence as a closure on the outside. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I’m happy to say, it works.  I like to visit and photograph the beautiful botanic gardens in Southern California; the pictures used on pages, tags and cards throughout the book are ones I took. I love how the book brings me into the gardens! ~Susan (SueBee)

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
