Project Life 2013 | Week 25

Week 25

My first week (of 4) of summer vacation started. I don´t think I have longed for some free time as much as I did this time! 
We started out those first free days with errands to the mainland and unpacking stuff from the move. We did get to pick the first strawberry from the garden and that was a highpoint ;)
The last story on page one is of my daughter that decided to stop riding horses. She has been riding for a few years and the last two she has taken care of a horse as her own. She has taken it very seriously and is very good at it. But she felt that it took away to much time from other things. She wrote a long tearful post on FB about it and I copied that post with the picture that went with it. 

Page two holds stories about how we prepared for and celebrated Midsummer. It is one of Swedens bigger holidays and there are big traditions around it. I got to celebrate with my new loves family and it was wonderful. 
My daughter was with her biological father for the weekend and the pocket down in the left corner holds her photos. 
On Sunday one of my nieces and nephew came to visit with my mom. We were all very excited about this! They stayed for a few days and we all had a blast!

That is week 25 and my spread  for week 26 is mostly done already ;) I needed to get ahead a bit since my photo show is tomorrow and then we leave for a roadtrip on Monday.

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 :)
