Goodmorning lovely ones! It’s another Wednesday and I have no tasks or obligations to fulfill today – which means I can do whatever I want and play in my atelier all day, yay! (Doesn’t it sound like a poem?
I have no tasks
to fulfill today
I can do
in my atelier
Last week, Julia (our lovely woyww-hostess) posted an idea she had to celebrate WOYWW’s eleventh anniversary on Wednesday May 20th, number 572. We usually swap ATCs to celebrate but as she says: “there’s a lot of pressure on every service at the moment (…) and our usual ATC swap would just add to the burden that the Post Office is experiencing. (…) So we won’t do that. I think we should really make something of this locked down Anniversary and take the opportunity to do something lovely for our enjoyment. So how about this: drag out a UFO (any craft, any age) or a kit, or ‘thing’ that you’ve promised to do ‘at some point’ and actually do it. Take the challenge and show us on WOYWW 572.”
I usually am quite disciplined, and finish the projects that I start, so I thought I had to miss out on this celebration challenge but something I saw on the internet made me realize I had in fact a long-forgotten UFO (UnFinished Object) laying on the shelf…
I once saw a little accordion booklet on the blog of my fellow desker Zsuzsa (Inky Dinky Doodle) she made from old craft-sheets (I think) and corrugated packaging board… it must have been over a year ago (is that right Zsuzsa?) I started making such a booklet but I didn’t come far… so this is the UFO I will work on this week and hopefully show the results next week.
Due to being a guest designer at “Dutch Dares” – a Dutch scrapbooking challenge group – I create more layouts than I have in a long time and I spend quite some time going throught old photos lately. When Sharon posted the new challenge at Challenge YOUrself I had just found the perfect photo, so I decided to give it a go:
The theme for this month’s challenge is all about MOM! You can include a photo of a grandmother, mom, daughter, child, etc. . . . interpret the theme any way you like. Just make sure that you include a photo with YOU in the frame!
My mum, me and my son.
And guess what? That little lad on the layout has grown big, and he (and his girl) send me this for Mother’s day last weekend…
And that’s it for today lovelies, I’m going to take out my inks/paints/papers and see if I can come up with an idea (theme?) to finish that accordion booklet. Have a lovely day y’all, stay safe!
