My favorites from Week in the life

Yes, I did the Week in the life project together with thousands of others and Ali Edwards. I took a relaxed approach and still don't know if I will do anything with the photos. I already did a regular Project life spread of the week. So maybe I'll just leave it at that. Today I thought I'd share a few of my favorite captures of the week. For this project I chose to focus on my days.


Monday: I had appointments in the city all day, but could also meet up with my daughter for a few hours. I love that she offered to take a few photos of us while I was driving.


Monday: Night time. My nightstand. My stuff.


Tuesday: I had three super early mornings this week. Which also meant quite early evenings. Eventhough it does get darker earlier already, at 9 pm it is still light out. 


Tuesday: My daughter called from the ferry and asked if we could come meet her. So we took our bikes down to the harbour and went home together.


Friday: I am a homebody. Like for real. And when I walk into our livingroom I was struck by how cozy it looked. 


Saturday: Minigolfing on a perfect Saturday. We had so much fun! 


Sunday: This perfectly sums up my Sunday. A lazy, creative day.

As I said before, perhaps this is all I'll do with this project. But I'm happy that I decided to do it!

Project Life 2015 | Week 28-31

Hi and welcome to another installment of Project Life spreads. I decided a few months ago to share a few weeks at the time rather than post once a week. Here are my week 28-31 spreads.

Week 28: This was still vacation time for me. We had a few guests during the week and also my sisters came to visit during the weekend. I used a color scheme of sorts for this, you can see it below. I was inspired by the tones in the moodboard.

I added a flip pocket to hold my currently list for the week. I make them occasionally and like to have them in here.

I also added a few photos to a mini flip album to the last pocket. It was a hot day and we were in swimsuits and the baby splished and splashed, so even though I wanted to include the photos I also didn´t want them to stand out.

Week 29: The first week back at work and I opted for a super simple spread using just photos and a few words.


I love to use numbers in my PL album and this week I made a little list with how many tomatoes I could pick, how many steps I took on a 6 hour work day, how many days I worked etc. I loke how it turned out!

Week 30: I worked with some happy colors for this week. I added in a pie chart I made early in the week of how I spend my time right now. Totally inspired by my friend Elizabeth Dillow.

I got a new niece on Friday and she got a whole pocket, ofcourse! I then ended with some weekend stories, for example this of us all crafting together!

Week 31: My daughter moved part time to her father on Monday. Clearly that needed to be documented. She is now almost 16 and lives one week at my place and the other week at her dad´s. I printed out a bigger photo of her room there, but the ink was running out, so I used a sheet of vellum, added my journaling and then placed it over the not so good photo. Make it work, right?!

I added in a story on the backside of that and also a paper bag from a resturant we visited and LOVED. 

Picture 6 of Week 31 by lisafisa

My daughter spend a few days in Denmark with her father´s family and I added in an insert to hold her stories.

The last two pockets hold the same story. To make it cohesive I let one of the two photos spread out on both pockets. 

So that´s 4 more weeks documented with the Project Life system. Bam!

You can see all my scrapbooking projects in my gallery here!

WCS | August gallery


Here is my layout for the new gallery at WriteClickScrapbook. The theme is starting something new. A new routine is something we have just started with my daughter living one week at her dad's and one week here with me. As you may understand there are a lot of emotions connected to this. I added my journaling to the background but rather than having my words open and for everyone to see, I created a flip pocket ontop of my page protector to hide it. 


It was fun to make and I love that I have saved my thoughts from this time in my life!

Memory keeping | Happy days and I made this


I am sharing two pages today. This first one is a simple layout using white on white circles. Using 3D glue dots make the circles pop and add dimension.

As a way to remember my late grandmother I made a wreath using her stash of embroidery yarn. It was a lot of work, but so worth it! I used these great PL cards I got in a kit from Studio Calico that were perfect for a craft project. I am loving black and white at the moment, with just a splash of color.

I hope that you all have a great Monday!

The new garden


Since we moved a lot has happened in our new garden. When we moved in we brought our rised beds and eagerly put them together quickly. Originally there were just grass and a few bushes and some flowers in the beds along the house. 


We brought a few plants from our old garden like strawberries, my peony and another flower.



The narcissus was almost gone and we had a few small rosebushes along the house and a larger bush by the front. 



As we knew we were moving, we hold up starting our seeds until we moved. So we were a little bit late this year. 


This year we got tomatoe plants from friends and as the summer hasn´t been that warm yet, we keep moving them inside at night. 





These rose bushes grows the biggest and most lushes roses I have ever seen!





Watering at night is one of my favorite things about gardening!


Here is the view from our back veranda. 


The tomatoes has grown and we could pick the first ripe ones this week! 



And so begins the harvest season! 

Have a great day!
