Mixed Media Morsels & more

Tips, Ideas, and Inspiration

As most of you already know, I love my coffee, so I decided to make a coffee junk journal, using a 6×9-inch envelope, some random papers, photos, and coffee ephemera. I’m having so much fun adding bits and pieces to the pages of this little journal, along with filming the process to create videos for my YouTube channel. Click here if you’d like to see those videos.

The following photos are a sampling of some of the pages in my journal.

Since I was having such a good time with this little journal, I thought it would be fun to make an extra one to give away. I adhered some gift wrap pieces to one side of the envelope, creating the front and back covers. I used a piece of burlap-printed tissue paper for the inside covers. The pages have been sewn in and I’ve added just a few items throughout the journal to give the winner a head start on filling the pages. There are also some extra goodies in the large pocket, which is part of the back cover.

Everything included in the giveaway is shown in the photo below.

    I’ve been watching your videos for some time and enjoy them so much. I’m learning a lot! I’d like to know if you would share what kind of laser printer you use or any other info about laser printers. I’m looking for a new all-in-one laser printer and have only had inkjet printers before.

    1. Cat says:

      Thanks, Maryann! I’m using an HP LaserJet Pro m477fdw. I got it from Amazon, and I really like it. I really don’t know much about laser printers, so I’m sorry, I can’t be of much help to you there. I will say, though, that I tried a Brother laser printer, but the color quality just wasn’t right, so I exchanged it for the HP. It’s just one of those things that you have to try out, so make sure there is a good return policy wherever you decide to get one.

      1. maryann says:

        Thank you for the information, Cat. The one you have is a bit out of my price range, but I am looking at some other HPs or possibly Canon, and am sure I will find something.
        I’d also like to second Robin’s comment about this blog since i too do not do FaceBook. .

      2. Cat says:

        My pleasure! You’ll love a laser printer, for sure. I hope you find the one that’s right for you soon! Take care! 😊

  6. Robin says:

    So glad you started this blog, Cat! I don’t do Facebook so this is great. I’m sure there is good stuff on Facebook too but I’ll look forward to keeping up here.

    1. Cat says:

      Thanks, Robin. It’s my hope to put more content here than I have done lately. 🤞🏻

  7. Sue Okeefe says:

    I enjoy your tutorials very much! I’d love a chance to win the coffee journal it’s outstanding!

    1. Cat says:

      Thanks so much, Sue!😊

    Glad I found you here too!

    Just wanted to post an update regarding the laser printer.I asked about. The one you have, Cat, seems to be available only on Amazon for $947. But there is an HP Laser Jet Pro M479 fdw that appears to be much the same and is sold most places for around $500.
    Thanks again for the information you provided.

    1. Cat says:

      Thanks, Maryann. When I purchased mine, it was in the $400 range, and I guess it makes sense that the newer model (479fdw) would be a little pricier. Take care! 😊
