Its been a while! I'm happy that I had some time to sit down and write a blog post.
I've been drawing since 2016 when I started Bullet Journaling. I was doing doodles and then I started to do more things and now here I am in 2018 doing illustrations for the shop and various businesses....
Time has change! And I wanna talk about what I know for sure when it comes to this art journey..
Trigger Warning: anxiety, panic attacks
I remember the first time I had a panic attack.
Do you remember your first time?
I didn't know what was going on and it really did scare me. Its been years since that first time. I was really quiet about having anxiety. It has been something that affects my relationships and at times it has been this monster that follows me every day.
Yaaay I am super excited to announce another class here at MP. We are going into some beginners digital art.
If you want to know how I personally turn my sketches into digital art then keep reading!
Lately I've been really into buying stamps. I like the fact that they speed up the journaling, scrapbooking, and planning process. But sometimes I don't feel like finding them, putting them on the acrylic block or stamping press, inking them, stamping and then cleaning it all up to do again later.
I specifically don't feel like it when it comes to simple doodles. As of recently I just started drawing my doodles instead of using my stamps. If you're looking to save money (maybe your saving up a particular journal or stamp that's more detailed) then you can draw these simple doodles.
Eid Mubarak to all my homies celebrating all over the world!

Women have so much going on. Some of us are raising multiple children, attending school, homeschooling, working 9 to 5s and so much more. We are moving fast and doing so much!
But you may wanna slow up just a tad and ask yourself these 10 questions:
I am so happy to have you here! Thanks for visiting the blog and hanging out with me. Today I want to talk about "Crafting While Muslim" This summer has been such a great experience for me. I've learned a lot and I'm going to share some pics of my adventures and some of my thoughts.
As salaamu alaikum friends!!!
Today I want to share my scrapbooking layout on developing a love for Allaah. I decided I wanted to do Eemaan (faith) based scrapbooking along with my Qur'aan Journaling. This is such a awesome way to add other subjects of interest for me to study.
As salaamu alaikum homies!
Welcome to Mariam Poppins!!! I am so excited to have you here.
I hope your day/night is going awesome! I'm super excited to announce the next class that I'll be teaching right here on MP!
I'm going to be teaching Eemaan based scrapbooking! Yes! You read that right! What is this exactly about?
As salaamu alaikum and hey you guys!!! Welcome to Mariam Poppins :)
I am so happy to have you here on the blog! I recently post on social media that I am starting to memorize the 99 names of Allaah. I recently made me some flash cards to get started. i'm going to share how I made the flash cards and what resources I plan on using to help me memorize.
As salaamu alaikum and howdy new and old friends! Welcome to Mariam Poppins!!! I am so happy to have you here! I've been reading this book called: "Think & Grow Rich. A Black Choice". This is a book by Dr. Dennis Kimbro. I've been listening to podcast a lot and heard him talking on a podcast that I recently found. I enjoyed the podcast so much that I spent the day finding all of his audio on Youtube and binge watching all the vids.
As salaamu alaikum
i am am super excited to share with you guys my first ever course on Mariam Poppins!
My name is Ameenah for those who are new here. I’m the co-owner of MP. I’m a Qur’aan Journalist Educator and freelancer here at Mariam Poppins. I have a true love and joy for Qur’aan journaling, planners, and all things artsy.
I love sharing how I creatively document my Qur’aan readings and my planner life through online and in person (at meet ups, workshops and conferences).
Subhana Allaah! I am a tad bit late with posting the new Qur'aan Journaling prompts. I apologize immensely. It's been pretty busy around here! As always there is a pdf you can download to use in your planner or put in your house as a reminder of what ayat you have to do each day. Feel free to jump in anytime. There is no pressure if you start today but you missed the other days. The goal is to read the Qur'aan everyday and increase in ilm and eemaan.
Have you been following me on Instagram? If you aren't then why not? If so then you guys know I've been sharing vids each morning at 4 of the Qur'aan Journaling layouts I've been doing. Each time you watch the vid there is always someone playing in background giving me some beneficial reminders to start my day off with. I love studying while the lectures are playing. I believe that sets the mood for me and helps me get down to business.
So many of you asked me who am I listening to and so today I'm going to share with you my favorite lectures that motivate me each morning.
Thanks for stopping by friends!
Very soon we will by the mercy and permission of Allaah have reached another Ramadhaan Al Hamdulillaah. While there are some of us who have passed on from this life and started their travel to the next, we are blessed to still be here and to worship The Creator. Al Hamdulillaah. May Allaah forgive us all for our sins and make us better Muslims. During Ramadhaan I strive my best to make all post centered around this blessed month as it is a blessed guest and I am to be a good host.
Today I want to talk about ways you can fill your home with love for Ramadhaan.
🌸Homemaker. Bullet Journalist. Artist. My joy is helping others, while making things in life look pretty 🌸
