iHanna's Creative Life in Art journaling and a Time Capsule Video, on

It has been such lovely weather this entire week, my birthday week. And now Easter is here, with family time and bird chirping in the trees outside my window. I am wishing you a very Happy Easter with this very yellow and springish video:

Let me know what you think of this in the comment section below!

I have started a new embroidery, painted a yellow daffodil inside my art journal, blown soap bubbles, decorated eggs, opened presents, eaten favorite food and yummy candy… And today I made my first time capsule video! Capturing a few moments of my everyday life, that I felt like sharing online. April sunshine in Sweden, etcetera. I am of the opinion that “right now” is a great moment to remember and document in all kinds of ways. To document the things that make my happy through video also makes me happy. Happier than if not. It’s something I used to do a lot many years ago, but then forgot about when video cameras and VHS tapes went out of fashion… Now when both my cameras and my iPhone can capture moving pictures digitally I think I need to start using what’s available more! It really is easier than ever to capture video these days, so why don’t we do that more often? It is like creating magic. It makes you the director of your own life.

I don’t want to make feature length movies, just a little of this and that. Things that make me happy, showing creative play and good times. Last Friday I posted a video tutorial on ring binders, and today’s video I’m calling Living a Creative Life… So fun to make.

I actually have several snippets of video on my computer, mostly shoot from the phone’s camera. Snippets of life that I never even watched. But when I find them and take a look, they make me happy I shoot them. I’m going to render them into something, save the files in a folder where I can watch them and share them with my family. And maybe more video with you guys, if you find it inspiring…
