From Pin to reality | Dino iPhone tripod

Hi there! If you are new here, let me quickly explain what these posts are. I love Pinterest! I have 77 boards  with 6939 pins to them ;) and by the time you read this, that number has probably gone up! Now, I am also a crafter, so I decided to make stuff I have seen on Pinterest. Enter the From pin to reality post series! These are where I show you the pin and the finished product that I have made. It´s fun and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn´t ;) 

Today I am showing a supersimple DIY inspired by this pin:

Make a Dinosaur Phone Tripod

I had wanted some kind of tripod or stand for my iPhone for a while, but didn´t want (read: I couldn´t afford!) to buy one. So, naturally I searched Pinterest for suggestions. Basically this is a tripod made out of a plastic dino and suction cup.

I bought this little guy at the dollar bin and basically said a prayer and be-headed him...I cut it´s head and front legs of with a sharp knife. If you look closely you can see a line where they had glued him together, so I used that as my guide. 

I had a suction cup here at home so I attached it to the front of the dino with my hot glue gun. Boy, is that one of the best Christmas gifts ever! I let it dry and tada! 

It works wonderfully! I have used it while listening to podcasts and even while facetiming! This was so simple and costed me about a dollar to make! One of the best things I have made!

Thank you for visiting!

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 fianc√© 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 :)
