OLW – Nourish & the Traveler’s Notebook

One thing I've noticed about recording my One Little Word in 2018 ... I'm actually appearing in a photo or two.  Well, one for now, but it's a start.There was always going to be a spread on New York City and I love how the finished spread looks.If you're looking for some inspiration on Traveler's … Continue reading OLW – Nourish & the Traveler’s Notebook

Month in Numbers| March 2018

Let's see if March turned out to be marvellous ...: There was just one day this month when school closed because of heavy snowfall. 270 lengths of the pool in the gym.  A better than expected total given that I missed a week because of a heavy cold. 15 scrapbook pages made this month.  Most … Continue reading Month in Numbers| March 2018

New York City | The Journal

And what of the journal I took to New York City earlier this month? I'm pleased to say that 1) it's finished, 2) it's looking quite fat and 3) it's looking rather dishevelled.And I love that last bit.  Travel journals are meant to look a little ragged, a little beaten up.  They're with you on … Continue reading New York City | The Journal

OLW – Nourish & the Traveler’s Notebook

I'm becoming quite attached to my One Little Word Traveler's Notebook.  (We Brits would ordinarily use two 'l's ...)  It sits on the side of my desk, nestled up to the keyboard, which means it's hard to ignore.  And that's a good thing, because I began 2018 with the desire to record the moments that … Continue reading OLW – Nourish & the Traveler’s Notebook

Recording My One Little Word in 2018

There was a time when every January, I signed up for Ali Edwards' year-long One Little Word workshop.  It invariably went one of two ways:  I stopped participating after 3 or 4 months, because I didn't feel Ali's suggestions weren't working for me, or I finished the 12 months and had a skinny (and usually odd-sized) album I … Continue reading Recording My One Little Word in 2018

December Daily | Foundation Pages

With less than a month until the beginning of December, I'm planning this year's December Daily album.  This will my tenth year in a row documenting the run up to Christmas Day, and it's still my favourite project.  I toyed with the idea of using a Traveler's Notebook, but in the end settled on an album from Simple … Continue reading December Daily | Foundation Pages

Weekend Retreat | What Did I Make?

Aside from all but finishing the Traveler's Notebook about our exploits in Sapin,I managed to make a whopping 11 scrapbook pages over the course of two days! Four were 12x12 pocket pages, three were 8.5x11 (a size I'd challenged myself to produce) and the remainder were 12x12(three were double-page spreads and one was a single-page spread). That's what I … Continue reading Weekend Retreat | What Did I Make?

Learn Something New Everyday | Days 1-5

Hello, September!The Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness is approaching. It also means that Shimelle is running her annual class, Learn Something New Everyday.  Looking through my blog archives, it appears that I last participated in 2009, and even then, I'd held it over to complete in December. (Do take a peek, The Boy Child was adorable as a … Continue reading Learn Something New Everyday | Days 1-5
