Scrapbooking projects – part two

Week in the life 2013 – not finished.

I did participate in the Project at the time but at the end of the week I realized that the week was pretty thin on content and photos. There was no way I could fill an album. So I had this brilliant idea. I could add the documentation of my renovation Project plus some other stuff going on at the time.

The first page with photos and a large journaling spot from the first day of the week…

…followed by three pages from my project…

One more page to make sure that day two was placed on the right side in the album…

Three weeks before Week in the life we spent two weeks vacation at Viva Bahia. We always bring the camera but I usually don`t scrapbook any of the photos. Last year we had a little Family reunion and I thought it was a good idea to add some photos from this visit…

Good times…

While we were at Viva Bahia the boys did their first hunting expedition. The fact that they never saw anything to kill needed to be documented…

…and from the airport back in Norway we had a birthday party to attend to. My brother`s father in law turned 80 and that needed a celebration…

I felt so smart when I made this album. I had “Week in the Life” and half of 2013 in one album:) But it is so hard to get back into this stuff one year later. I have everything I need to finish but yet I`m stalling.

In two weeks Ali Edwards is hosting Week in the Life 2014. Do I want to do it this again this year? I am not sure. But sometime earlier this summer I was sure…

…because I have an album dedicated to Week in the Life 2014:)

The art of doing nothing

Sometimes I need to do nothing. This should be easy for me – lazy as I am. But no, sitting down doing nothing is a challenge.  Crocheting and Netflix does it for me. A series with a lot of episodes not related to each other so I don`t have to pay attention and an easy design like this one…

…pinned on Pinterest. An easy and repeated design. I have no idea what to do with the stuff I make but sometimes I am in luck. This one turned out to be a cute curtain for the kitchen…

Of course – it has to be documented…

Love my kind of sitting down doing nothing. This Sunday I have a new idea going on…

All I need is to find another series to watch while I let my thoughts wander off…

Scrapbooking projects – part one

I have this idea about starting fresh in 2015 and to be able to do that I have to clean out my storage binders and finish all the unfinished projects I have on the table. There are several of those:)

There is one project I know I can`t finish before the end of the year – the album I started in Jennifer Wilson`s class “Before Your Story”. Haven`t done anything since spring. I had to test-print the pages I had finished before moving forward. Those old photos was in bad shape and I am no wizard in Photoshop.

The prints came back from Scrappingsimply just perfect…

The album have 40 finished pages…

15319027679_775ccee80e

…and there are so many more to make :)

…but I have all the time in the world to make them.

This is not the project that haunts me…
