Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine | November

One event in October embodied our One Little Word –  notification that The Boy was eligible to receive an Autumn Covid booster. I adapted the design from one I had seen on the Instagram feed and blog of Felicity Jane Studio and am really pleased with how it turned out. The photo was printed out at 8.5 x … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine | November

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine | September

One event in September embodied our One Little Word - the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I wanted to include several trimmed 6x4 photos so I created a concertina double-sided flap to sit on top of a background grid pattern. All patterned paper and embellishments are from Doodlebug Design's My Happy Place range.

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
