Hey everyone! I’m Melissa Tan and I’m the creator of Tangerine Studio! We’re a local craft supply store, and have an Instagram page dedicated to helping anyone and everyone in their journey of creative journaling.

Many might not know this, but journaling is a rapidly growing community, and those who follow us love sharing their experiences and tips online. Creative journaling isn’t just writing a bunch of words in a book – think of it as a way of developing yourself and expressing your thoughts and emotions!

I often find myself journaling almost four to five times a week. And depending on what I’m journaling about, I sometimes get lost in the moment and end up spending hours or even days working on that one piece!

To anyone who is looking for ways to express your emotions, or maybe just looking for a hobby – I would like to encourage you to give this a try! I’ve found it to be deeply calming, fun, and if you join our little community – an excellent way to make new friends.

“Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I know of people who want to try but don’t know what to try so they’d purchase very expensive supplies but for all the wrong purposes… Just do a bit more research to find out what you want to do and then narrow it down. If all else fails, just be open to trial and error!”
