Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine | August

I chose The Boy's flight with Aerobility for August's spread. After those flights last month, The Boy applied for a place on the charity's Aviation Education Programme. To his delight, he was awarded a much-coveted place on this nine month course, which began at the weekend. Patterned paper and embellishments are, as ever, from Doodlebug … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine | August

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine | May

There was only one contender to show how we had redefined something in May to make it work for us, and that was when The Boy and I went into town to see the Jubilee decorations. I don't have any specific British-themed embellishments, so I used stickers from Doodlebug's Land That I Love range, which … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine | May

Life in the Time of Covid | Isolating at Home

As this post goes live this morning, The Brainy One and The Boy are on Day 5 of isolating at home. Two out of three Banished The Brainy One and The Boy managed to bring back an unwanted guest from Jersey. After more than two years of avoiding the virus, both tested positive for Covid-19 … Continue reading Life in the Time of Covid | Isolating at Home

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – April

There was only one contender this month and that was when I took The Boy to brunch in a Victorian former public convenience. I used the same sketch as April but rotated it a quarter turn. I found the perfect teacup embellies in my stash; they're by Paige Evans for American Crafts. For the journaling, … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – April

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – March

There was only one contender for March and that was the return to West End theatre. On the surface the outing looked as before, but underneath, numerous changes. I reused a favourite grid design and simply copied the text from my blog post for the journaling. That book stack embellishment was a gift from Mary-Lou. … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – March

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – February

It was only when I was sorting the layouts made at Crop in the Country into albums, that I realised I had created a page suitable for this month's One Little Word. Before slipping the page into an album, I added two more acrylic embellishments, and extra photos and journaling to the back of the … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – February

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – January

For want of a better idea, I'm sticking with recording this year's word of redefine simply - one 12x12 scrapbook page each month. For January I chose a family gathering, which looked normal on the surface. Underneath that layer of normality, those of us over the age of 12 are fully vaccinated, all adults and … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – January

Scrapbooking in 2022 | The Goals

Last Summer's travelers notebook Given the ongoing pandemic I imagine that most of 2022 will be fairly similar to 2021, and that thought has helped to consolidate this year's scrapbooking goals. Storage for albums remains at a premium, so I'm continuing the theme of one layout for each month this year - 12 in 22. … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2022 | The Goals
