@36 (february 2015)


This post was written just before my 36th birthday in February.

Making: stuff for different themes for my creative teams. Gifts and decorations for friends. And always scrapbooking layouts and weekly PL spreads.

Thinking: About our future and all the work it will take to move forward. But also how I am looking forward to the change.

Planning: For a weekend at birthday parties, including my own. Our wedding and move.

Worrying: About the house sale and the conflicts and work that comes with that. I worry about Stina, her well-being and future.

Pinning: Super simple knitting projects and ofcourse the usual paper/craft pins!

Wearing: Jeans. Finally my new jeans are soft and worn enough to be my favorite! New jeans are not my thing. I am wearing more and more dark and navy blue.

Drinking: More and more water, both hot and cold. But a cup of coffee in the morning is a must!

Struggling: with feeling blue and thinking everything is hard.

Loving: the support of my family and the thought of starting fresh.

Reading: Springfloden by Börjlind and Life after you by Moyes.

Listening to: podcasts like This American Life and Dear Sugar. To audiobooks and old favorite tunes.

Needing: space and time by myself. To saty grounded and in the moment and a lot of rest.

Starting: to purge the house/garage.

Feeling: all the feelings.

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 :)
