Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – January and February

This year's word of heart is being recorded simply - one 12x12 scrapbook page a month. The Boy made me laugh by suggesting that he should appear every month. 🙂 In January, I chose a cute photo of our great nephews after they'd built a snowman: For February, I chose a set of photos taken … Continue reading Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – January and February

Scrapbooking in 2021 | 12 in 20 #4

Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 10

The news here in the UK and around the globe continues … Continue reading Life in Lockdown | Lockdown 3.0

Then we learned about the new variant of Covid-19 and most of Europe, following France's lead, closed their borders to … Continue reading Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 9

One Little Word | Pause – November and December 2020

I went with a circular design (I drew around a saucer) and a host of stickers to wrap up November and December's One Little Word. For November, I chose to focus on the glorious Autumn skies across our local park. For December, I chose images of London's decorated West End. One 8x8 layout per month … Continue reading One Little Word | Pause – November and December 2020

Month in Numbers | December 2020
