OLW 2015 | more/less


I didn´t choose a word of the year in 2014. In 2013 I had brave. I needed to be brave about so many things after the divorce and all and I felt comforted by reading brave quotes I found around the web. 

For this year I chose more/less. It is technically two words, but you can´t have one without the other in this case. A few times the past year I have felt detached from the right now. Always one step ahead and with what felt like a million tasks going on at the same time. I had a stress-test made and I was in the danger-zone for stressrelated issues like heartproblems. This, clearly, made me stop and think. 


I need to change many things, but I am going to focus on just a few at a time. One aspect is my weight. I have let myself go and I know I would feel better if I´d loose a few kilos. This means MORE walks - LESS time spend sitting down, mainly on the couch and infront of the computer. See how I used my OLW there?!

Stree also equals anxiety for me and that ofcourse is a big issue. So I nee to do MORE breathing = LESS anxiety. Which also give MORE patience and LESS freaking out. Well, you can see where I am going right?! 

I am loosely working with the class material from 2011 when I took Ali Edward´s One little word class. Then I am just going to see where it takes me. You know, MORE simplicity - LESS complicating! 

Here´s to MORE yes and LESS backing out in 2015!

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 :)
