Crochet | On my hook lately

I always have a few crochet projects going on and lately, after falling of my bike and injuring my knee I have also had a lot of free time also. So I have tried a few things I have been wanting to try for a while. One is the crochet wrap around rocks. I have seen this over at Pinterest and have been a little scared to try my hands at the tiny projects, but when my friend Susanna send me a lovely crochet book earlier this year, I found a simple pattern for these. After making one I noticed it 
wasn´t hard at all and quite addictive! I have made several and even made a few smaller ones for necklaces. 

I made these guys to give away as summer gifts for a few of my co-workers! Aren´t they cute! After making one they worked up really fast and I have made a few variations already. I am planning to add some dried lavender from my garden later in the summer and these could be both decorative and work as a air freshner.

And here is my absolute favorite project as of late! I got the pattern for this Cocoon sweater from KnitBrooks and even though the name suggests that it would be a knitting pattern, it´s a lovely fast crochet project. Basically it is one big granny square that is worked until it´s big enough to fold in half. Sew armholes and voila! 

I have made a few ones in different colors and using both a variation in yarns and hook sizes. I think this mustard yellow is my favorite! 

Do you crochet? What has been on your hook lately?

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 :)
