I love rub-on letters :)

Sunday sermon. Kinda.

So my desk is clean and I'm ready to finalise the album from our family holiday to Germany in 2005. I had the photos printed like two weeks after the trip and I've started to work on the album many times, you know, well planned work.... Here comes the but, I never kept a journal during the trip, and it's really difficult to produce wonderful, deep and meaningful journaling when all you remember is that it was really hot and you carried huge bottles of water around. So I called a family meeting, we sat down and looked at the photos and managed to squeeze out a couple of fun memories. DD journalled on one of the pages, as did DH, that was cool.

Jotting down notes every day of the trip would have helped. Finishing the album after the trip would have helped. Being brave and just getting to it finally helped.

If you wanna read more about journalling, go e.g. to Ali Edward's newsletter.


My treasure.

14 vintage portraits of men and women, from my grandmother's belongings. Unfortunately I have no clue who these people are, presumably her relatives and friends. (the reason I don't know is that she died before I was born and my dad died when I was 15 and at that time family history was not a priority...)

Almost done.

Ah, I can see my desk now, as everything is on the bed now... an hour or so and I can have a cup of coffee and then get on with my planned projects!


Is my trash your treasure?

I'm cleaning my stuff, in a desperate attempt to create a space on my desk that would allow me to work on something larger than ATCs... So I'm filling up an envelope with smallish pieces of paper, fibers, punchies, stamped images, what-have-you. Wanna have it? First person in Finland to comment to this post gets the goodies!


Much better.

Ah, the cute little Xmas ATC was just not enough for me, so I stole an idea from Violet and hung it up! And as I cannot bear to part with scraps, I made a small tag to be used later on :)

Go and adore Violet's work right now!!


Is it time to be jolly yet??

It's raining and I'm having difficulties in getting into the holiday spirit -- I'd like to get my Xmas cards done but... here's a sample of what I'm thinking, and oh yes, it's an ATC :)

Circle Journal -- Fall.

We have snow and a fall-themed circle journal was sitting on my desk waiting for my entry. Here goes:
