I mused recently on how I might scrapbook all the photos from Venice.None of what I have envisaged has materialised.Scrapping has always been a form of therapy for me, but recent realisationshave seen me unsettled and in danger of losing my scrapping mojo(not to mention my mind ...).So for now, the photos are printed and … Continue reading When The Plan Doesn’t Work …
Do you have items of clothing in your wardrobethat you'd only wear when on holiday?Until recently, I'd have laughed at that question and said, "No!"My holiday wardrobe is pretty much the same as my summer at home wardrobe;namely years old linen shorts and scoop neck t-shirts. But then I purchased an off-the-shoulder topthat I knew I'd … Continue reading Holiday Wardrobe
Oh Venice. We all fell in love with you.
Yesterday, Mary-Lou left on a comment on my post about my finished Traveler's Notebook:"Very nice TN & what a fun trip it looks like. Will you do full scrapbook pages for some of the most memorable moments?"The easy answer to that is, "No, not this time around", with the reason being that I am awarethat we … Continue reading Venice Photos | A Specific Album, Single Pages or Both?

Reading the Neapolitan novels by Elena Ferrante on the Kindle.... Still walking around the park each day. A habit that's hard to break.... Choosing 'nothing changes if nothing changes' … Continue reading Right Now …
With an overseas trip on the horizon,I've been tempted to try out the humble traveler's notebook.One 'l' or two in traveller?Whatever. I couldn't resist the urge to jazz up the plain kraft cover.I've also added washi tape along the page edges, and thin lined card stock to alternate pages, simply because I am hopeless at writing in … Continue reading The Traveler’s Notebook
Last month, not much scrapbooking got done, what with the The Boy Child being on school holidays. I'd planned on rectifying that this month. And where better than beginning with a double page spread of Max. I still have a smallish pile of photos waiting for a home in the Los Hermanos album, and with … Continue reading Hands on Therapy
I was beginning to think I'd have nothing to report for this week's Memos: Mail: Me slot.Happy Mail was looking decidedly thin on the ground.And a girl can only stalk the Postie for so long ...But then on Friday morning, the Postie brought me two parcels of happiness;a guide book for a planned visit to … Continue reading Memos: Mail: Me
