The 100 Day Project | Day 75

Roughly half-way down my 100 Day Project list of UFOs, at number five, were the words fill in the gaps in The Nephew's albums. The Nephew currently has two 12x12 albums, begun when I was new to scrapbooking ... Anyone else begin their scrapbooking with the simplicity of Creative Memories? It was obvious to me … Continue reading The 100 Day Project | Day 75

Scrapbooking in 2021 | Completing the Ascension Island Album

I've reached the point in the Asi Album where I'm happy to call it done. The majority of the pages are Project Life style - there are only ten traditional 12x12 spreads - and I like the look and feel of having mixed things up. 🙂 The Best Friend asked me how I remembered so … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2021 | Completing the Ascension Island Album

Project Life Revisited | Weeks 51 and 52

Week 51: Walks with Tilly are the highlight of my day. I went for my first-ever flu jab. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were spent quietly at home. Strictly, a new jigsaw and a glass of bubbly. I made an interactive lift-up flap for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. What's not very clear is that … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 51 and 52

Project Life Revisited | Weeks 49 and 50

Week 49: We went early with the Christmas decorations. The Boy Child captured a beautiful sunrise as he waited for the bus to school. I made the first batch of cranberry sauce.

Project Life | Revisiting Those Early Years | Four Into Two

In January of this year, I planned a revamp of The Boy Child's scrapbooks. In particular, the baby and toddler years. As 2020 nears its end, I have finished revamping years 2007-2011. Five years of The Boy Child's life now sitting comfortably in two albums, as opposed to four overly-full albums. Some of the layouts … Continue reading Project Life | Revisiting Those Early Years | Four Into Two

Project Life Revisited | Weeks 45 and 46

Week 45: West London had a few days of weather that was worth photographing. The US election had me gripped, even though the sitting president soon had me shouting at the TV and incandescent with rage (again). The US election result I was hoping for came four days after the USA went to the polls … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 45 and 46

Project Life Revisited | Weeks 43 and 44

Week 43: It was yet another week of staying close to home and for being grateful to have such wonderful parks to walk Tilly in. Autumn has made her presence felt this week. 🙂 The Brainy One and I watched the superb The Trial of the Chicago 7 on Netflix, which we highly recommend. Strictly … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 43 and 44

Four Fun Things

In a Creative Bubble has released their latest Christmas offering and it's fab. 🙂 Americast on BBC Sounds is perfect for those of us who want a clearer understanding of American politics. Both Emily Maitlis and John Sopel are brilliant. I may have begun my Christmas shopping and even wrapped a few gifts. I may … Continue reading Four Fun Things
