Around here


Around here...
The weather has been fanatstic lately. We still have had cool nights and a bit of rain, but the winds are warm and the temps are up to almost 20. May usually has been warmer and then it gets cooler again in June. Weird.
Work has been tough. It has been all year really. I do like challenges, but sometimes you feel like you just stand there in the same spot and not getting anywhere.
I have been feeling un-normally tired. This has been been a sign of my depression getting worse in the past. But I hope that it is just a low period and that my body and mind long for summer vacation that is just a few weeks away.
The cats think they are in heaven with this great weather. They have been spending more and more time outside and just coming in for cuddles and food. The windows and door are usually open so they can wander as they please.
We are doing good. Things have been interesting with my new love spending almost all his time at my place and us getting to know eachother on so many levels. It is hard sometimes, but not at all hard enough to quit ;)
My daughter has been doing good too. Much much better all the time and that makes me ever so happy. School is out soon and I am sure she will enjoy sleeping in!
In two weeks my baby sister is getting married. We look forward to this immensly. It is always fun to dress up and party! The festivities is a 2 day thing with a welcoming party for their son on the next day.
How has Life been around you lately?
Did you have them to check out The phone Photography Project yet? It is a fun new workshop that takes Place in July! It is smacked full of tips and tricks all about taking photos with your phone and I am one of the contributors!

Memory keeping | Autumn TN 02

If you´d like to see my first few pages in my Autumn mini, just click here

I am still working away in my Autumn travelers notebook. I have enjoyed to add bits and pieces and stories about some of my favorite things about fall. I will go on in November and then start my annual Christmas mini at the start of December. 

Quotes are one of my favorite things to include in my memory keeping projects, so it is no suprise that I have quite a few in here. 

I will use most of the remaining pages for my 30 day gratitude project that I do every year with the grand finale of Thankgiving at the end of the month. 
I have a question, if you are one who makes traveler notebooks, how do you store them when they are done?

Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 6 past favorites

Three years ago, when my fiancé and me celebrated our first December together, I started a December minibook. It´s a 6x8 binder from Simple Stories with pocket pages. I decided that I´ll have three years worth of December memories in this mini. So this year marks the last one being documented in this book. I am not doing anything daily (as in the December Daily project that Ali Edwards do) and since I do Project Life every week this album is all about our December traditions and sometimes I do have double recordings, but for me it is all ok. What I have felt special about working in my December mini is that I go all in with glitter, cheesy wordings etc. It´s fun! I fitted 3 years of Decembers in one album and this year I am getting a new album, but will still do the same thing.

Today I thought I´d share a few favorite pages and elements from the past 3 years before I start the new album.

1. I really like that I have included the things I have been inspired by every year. I take a screen…

Kellie Stamps CT 2016 | November

I'm so happy about the re-release of two alpha sets this month from Kellie Stamps! Slim Jim is a set I use all the time for all kinds of projects. 

Here is a new page I did for the re-release.

I've been so inspired by fellow team member Diane and her awesome traveller notebooks lately. She often creates backgrounds using her alpha stamps, so I lifted her and made this background for my layout. I very rarely use any other color than black to stamp with, but after using this blue/teal Ink I may have to start. 

Since my love is worse in his MS his wheelchair is a must. We are that couple that hold hands a lot and that is something I miss. But when the road is a tiny bit downhill we totally hold & roll :)
