Today is another Wednesday so grab a cup of tea – or maybe hot chocolate – curl up on the couch and listen to my…
(I don’t create ‘traditional scrapbook layouts’ anymore but every Wednesday I dive into my albums and lift a ‘golden oldie.’ The layouts I pick are random, YOU – blog readers – name the number of the album and layout to show. Let me know in a comment which album you want me to open next week – to avoid that you name layouts that have already been requested, you can find a list showing the ‘free’ numbers to choose from on this page.
Because nobody requested a golden oldie scrapbook layout last week, I choose one myself. I went back to my early blogging years to see what I posted on October 16 (today’s date.)
I started blogging in 2008, but that was in November… so I moved on to the next year and found a post on October 16th, 2009 This was the scrapbook layout I showed back then:
[This layout was made from a sketch. You can find that sketch, as well as more detail photos of this layout, in the old blogpost.]
This layout is #18 stored in album 6. If YOU want to request a ‘golden oldie’: you can find the list of layouts to choose from HERE. Let me know in a comment which album you want me to open up and which layout you want me to show next week…
Now that we are in the studio… let us take a look at my work desk because it is yet another “What’s On My Work desk? Wednesday.” WOYWW is Julia’s weekly Wednesday blog hop and it is THE event where crafty and artistic individuals around he world share pictures of their desks.
Ha… not much going on here… but take a turn and look to the right…
… there’s a LOT going on on the closet there.
So this is where the action is taking place today.
Here is a closer look.
Do you see that stencil-book that my son gave me for my birthday?
He bought it in Paris and I am totally in love with it! The stencils inside are so different from what you normally see and absolutely gorgeous to use on art journal pages. The image of the girl is from one of those stencils, and I used another stencil in my Chronicles art journal a while ago… (No, that is not what you think… look closer at the man. Those are spray bottles with ink!)
The Chronicles of Marit – Week 40
And that’s it for today then… again, not a long blogpost.
Not much text anyway… but I know that is how most WOYWW-hoppers like it. I will try to visit a whole bunch of your desks also today sweeties, see ya!
