on the cards :: March

The fact I’m writing my March wrap on the eighth of April is testament to the busyness of life at the minute. I can’t believe the first quarter is done and dusted and we’re rapidly heading for ANZAC Day and our first frost. I will confess, straight up, I am very rarely working on this project on the daily. There […]

on the cards :: February

February has been a mixed bag of life being so very lifeish. We’ve kicked off another year of school, and the teenagers are back into their work schedules. I’m trying to find a balance of teaching homeschool and keeping on top of the housework and squeezing in creative time and not losing my mind in the process. My card a […]

album update //week three

It’s normally the week three mark I find myself coming undone a bit with December Daily. There’s so much going on and it’s one of the easiest projects to drop. This year, though, I seem to be staying on top of it. Kind of. I think the key difference is having established early on that I made the decision to […]

album update // week two

Two weeks in, and my December Daily album remains up to date (partly thanks to a li’l sprint this morning to tidy up a few missed pages, but still, up to date is up to date). In my last update, I mentioned not love the Kraft base, and was considering a switch to a white base. That’s exactly what I […]

album update // week one

A week in, and I’m finding my December Daily is more like, December Every Four Days. While I do take my photos each day, the prints themselves tend to work better as 4-to-a-print, to be scrapped onto a 4×6 card, so I tend to get four done in a sitting once I have photos ready to be collaged. For the […]

WIP Wednesday :: Digital Papers

Somewhere, between building and moving and mumming and all the everything that fills everyday life, the last two months have disappeared, and the silly season is approaching with a terrifying rapidity. Last year, our advent shenanigans were rudely interrupted by the coming of the plague (twice!), and I think this year, I’m in full overcompensation mode, collecting challenges and projects […]

15 @ 40 // day fifteen

June me was such an optimistic, overachieving type, wasn’t I? Not only was I knee deep in the production of season four of the podcast, but I thought it was completely reasonable to blog daily, including churning out a project each day. What on EARTH was I thinking? Nevermind that June is traditionally one of the busiest months in our […]

15 @ 40 // day fourteen

One of my favourite parts of the glory days of blogging, was the various rabbit holes one could fall down just from a single linky party. I could find myself starting with bookmarking a post with a cute sketch to scrap lift, and in the comments there, find a scrapbooker who teamed up with an artist for a challenge. From […]

15 @ 40 // day eight

Of all the creating I’ve been doing lately (mostly as part of my Fifteen At Forty project; it appears to have taken over my entire brain), my favourite pieces, the ones that inspire and motivate me the most are the multi-modal pieces that pull in different aspects of my creative history. From traditional mixed media, to over engineered digital art, […]

key to mummy’s heart :: mothers day craft

Late last year, Beetle Boy decided he was done with forever trailing after his big siblings and just doing whatever activities they were doing. He wanted something just for his own, somewhere to make friends that were someone other than the younger siblings of his own siblings friends. Scouts, we thought, might be a good fit for him. To say […]
