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

I've just completed another Frugal February and I feel good about it. It's been good practice to pause and actively consider whether a … Continue reading Frugal February | A Month of No Buying
