OLW 2017 | January


I thought a lot about what word I should use as guidence in 2017. Often the word finds me somewhere in mid November, but it was later this time. I choose connect for it´s many synonyms.

Connect:

  • combine
  • link
  • get into
  • join
  • marry
  • relate
  • unite
  • incorporate
  • focus

In the classroom Ali Edward´s has a sheet we fill out and one of the questions were: What do you fear most in 2017? I put, that I miss what is going on around me by not being focused and consumed with social media for example. I do love browsing Instagram the most and I don´t feel that it takes away all that much time from anything else, but I do want to be a little more aware of when I am mindlessly scrolling. 
One thing I am looking forward to is to read again. I listen to many audio books, but I want to get into the habit of setting away time to read every day. 

My intention is to be more focused, try to do one thing at the time, being present, connect with friends, read every day, walk more, connect with what brings me joy. 


Last year I worked in a 6x8" pocket album and this year I am doing a 6x4" mini album much like the one I did for the Details 2 class. I loved doing that size and thought the OLW project would be another perfect time to do it again. Here are the first few pages.





I was going to re-print this photo, but then I kinda like it ;)



I need to add a few actions, things I am focusing on in January. When the month is over I´d like to write reflections of it. I´ll see if I´ll keep that up every month. 

Are you doing the One Little Word project?

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 :)
