End of year thoughts 2015



This year has held so many different things. The biggest must have been selling my house. It was an easy decision (well, kind of), but held so many hard things in the process. I am a person with my heart on my sleeve and am an overtinker. To sell the house I´ve lived in for so long and where my daughter grew up was sad, but so good. Good because that had to happen for me to completly move on from my old life. It involved paperwork, hard phonecalls and long meetings with my bank. It also involved sorting and purging for months. While in the midst of it all it felt like it would never end. But it did and we could move to our new plave we love so much! We worked together and it felt so good to have my love´s support!



The year also held the decision to postpone our wedding. The stress and costs for the house sale took so much energy from us, so we knew we couldn´t plan a wedding ontop of that. We haven´t set a new date, although we thought it might be a year later. We´ve decided to let it be for a while. We still have and love eachother and that is all that matter.


2015 also included my daughter graduating from Jr high and started High School in the city, an excitig time indeed. I am so proud of her!


It also included the fun and excitement of starting a new garden! It is smaller and much more easily to tend to.


We welcomed a new niece to our family! If you know me, you know that I love to be an aunt :)


Creativly I had a good year too. I started a new fun project with the Pocket Letter project. I still enjoy making happy mail for friends! If yoou´d like, you can follow my Pocket Letter Pinterest board! 

I have finished a few bigger crochet projects but my favorite must be my blanket. I hope to have another blanket in progress soon!

There you have it. Just like any other year ups and downs. I´m excited to see what 2016 has in store!

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 :)
