Scrapbooking in 2021 | May and June

I made a single page to showcase May. I used an old design by Shimelle to record a day spent at Hughenden with friends-who-are-like-family - it was the first time we'd seen them since Christmas 2019. For June, I chose to record our day at Cerney House and Gardens and I used a sketch I'd … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2021 | May and June

Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – March and April

In March I chose to record the blossom currently blooming in our part of West London. I cut the Spring title using my Big Shot - I cut each letter twice and then layered them to add definition. In April I went for my love of reading. This was a scraplift from a layout seen … Continue reading Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – March and April

Covid-19 | Life in Lockdown – One Year on

This time last year, I never imagined I'd be trying to marshall my thoughts into some sort of coherent post about how the last 365 days have been for me and my family. It is perhaps easiest if I divide my thoughts into two columns - positives and negatives ... Positives: Lockdowns work. They're hard … Continue reading Covid-19 | Life in Lockdown – One Year on

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

One Little Word | Pause – November and December 2020

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

Let me begin by thanking you for reading, commenting and staying with me throughout 2020. It was quite the year. And that last sentence was quite the under statement.

Covid-19 | Life in Lockdown – At Home Revisited

Back in April, as well as reaching out to friends around the world for their thoughts on lockdown, I also wrote a short piece about my own lockdown experiences. Six months on, I've written another, so grab a cuppa and pull up a chair. As I type this, London currently sits in Tier 2 - … Continue reading Covid-19 | Life in Lockdown – At Home Revisited
