Around here | Week 3

Around here the weather changes almost from day to day. This past weekend we had a big storm  that destroyed a lot of our woods. The morning after we had a few inches of snow and it kept snowing all day. Then a few days later the temps were up to 5 degrees again. I can´t wait ´til spring!

Around here we are settling in to normal routine with work and school. My daughter started her last semester in Jr high and she needs to make an effort to get some of her grades up to be able to get into the High school that she wants. We are doing homework together and once again I thank God I went to school as long as I did! Math is really the only subject I can´t handle, but thankfully she has a smart dad!

Around here we are getting ready to get the house on the market. This past summer we decided to sell the house and get something else together. It makes sense to start over somewhere else, but I will miss my garden terribly. I do look forward to the changes, it is always exciting to set up house somewhere new. We want to stay on the island ofcourse.

Around here I am working on my first bigger knit project. I hope that it will eventually turn out as a sweater! I am such a beginner, but the pattern (in my head) isn´t that complicated. I love having something to do in front of the TV!

Happy weekend!

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 fiancĂ© 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 :)
