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

December Daily 2020 | Foundation Pages

This will be my 13th year documenting December and for a very brief moment, I thought about not doing it. The on-going global pandemic will mean a December without us hosting our annual Christmas Drinks Party (a firm favourite), without The Brainy One and I spending a day Christmas shopping (which in reality means a … Continue reading December Daily 2020 | Foundation Pages

Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 7

The Covid-19 journal has now spread into a second album. I've included a title page: Then it's onto the news that President Trump had tested positive for Covid-19. Following him is a newspaper cutting highlighting the new tier regulations that came into force in mid-October, a letter from our local council and the Tier-system press … Continue reading Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 7

Scrapbooking in 2020 #16

The lovely Mary-Lou, of Patio Postcards blog and organiser of the ever-popular Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt, recommended Scrapbooking Quebec on YouTube as a source of scrappy inspiration and she wasn't wrong. 🙂 Taking inspiration from her easy-to-follow videos, I produced two layouts starring our great nephews. The first spread marks the twins joining their big … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2020 #16

Month in Numbers | October 2020

How did October pan out in these weird times? Let's see what the numbers had to say: 46 walks with Tilly. 4 haircuts. 5 visits with family members. Another month with Covid-19 restrictions in place across the UK. London has now spent 15 days in Tier 2 - High. I fully expect another national lockdown … Continue reading Month in Numbers | October 2020

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

Week 41: I collected my new retainer from the orthodontist. Autumn has arrived in our favourite local park. We met up with my SiL to walk our dogs together. We celebrated the twins' birthday over Zoom. Week 42: I popped into the salon to get my eyebrows done. 🙂 Not shown are the haircuts three … Continue reading Project Life Revisited | Weeks 41 and 42

Scrapbooking in 2020 #15

As I’ve previously mentioned, I wasn’t entirely convinced by the class examples included with my box of goodies from Crop in the Country … but with some creative thinking and encouragement from The Best Friend, I produced several layouts I’m happy with. I focused my efforts on updating early pages from The Boy Child’s albums. The example layout called … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2020 #15
