OLW 2015 | No2

Inspirational quoten + think less & live more
Link to source

I thought I´d re-visit my OLW for the year, more/less. You can read more about it here! One month into the new year, I have been thinking a lot about how I need to do more of some things and less of others. It is in the back of my mind all the time. I have been taking daily walks after work and it makes such a difference from going straight home. I live 30 seconds from work, so there is really no time to "de-work" for me. But a half an hour in nature is doing wonders!

Another aspect is breathing. I have been taking my deep breathes on a daily basis whenever I feel like things are going out of control. It calms me down so I can Re-focus.

As I am a crafter, I have used my OLW in different projects. Like the banner above. I will have a little DIY post up on making these. I like to surround myself with words and quotes. 

When I have some time I like to write words too! I bought a watercolor brush where I can add water to a little container, making it easier to write/paint more evenly since there is a constant adding of water. It is so much fun! 

So, there is where I am with my OLW right now. I'll be back in February with an update! 

Happy 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 :)
