“Teeny weeny”

I got my gift from Lou in the mail yesterday. She called it “teeny weeny”, but although it’s not a very big object, I consider it a BIG gift! I’m very happy with it! Take a look!

 
She made me a small box, with my name on it and some sweet flowers. I love the colours!

Small talk

Helen and Lou received my gift this week. Of course I took photo’s of what I made before shipping it and because Helen published some pics on her blog today, I can show it to you too! I made her this little book.

 

(More pics of this are here in my gallery.)
A few weeks ago, I published a tutorial on how to make such a book.
You’ll find that overhere.

The morning paper,
coffee & cigarettes.

As you may (or may not) know, I’m my own boss. I run a small company together with my love (see our website) It’s just the two of us, and since
we have our office right at home I can schedule my week anyway I like.
Since crisis struck, there’s not always enough work for the both of us
(anyone need a new bloglook/website? Mail me!) so most of the time my beloved manages the office on his own and I keep myself busy around the house. Housekeeping, laundry, shopping, cooking… and it leaves me a lot of time to create!
When Scrapping out Loud came with their last challenge I didn’t know what to make of it… 

For this week we challenge you to Scrap a page about your favorite day of the week and tell us why it is your favorite day, or what makes it your favorite day.”

Because I can do whatever I like on any day of the week, I don’t have much of a favorite day. I DO have some returning rituals though, so I brainstormed about that a bit and look what I came up with!

(Warning!!! Lots of pictures ahead!)

Not today

‘Cause actually, it was last Tuesday that Scrapping out Lout came up with the new challenge –  and Tuesday I felt *@#!~##&!!?@**!!!!
I looked at the challenge and decided to use the Word of the Week (“Today“) 
– combined with my feeling – right away!
I took my camera and played!

 

It was yesterday that it became clear where the feeling had come from, yep, that time of the month… I don’t have to explain any further, do I ladies? So I took an aspirin and started making the LO with the photo’s
I took (using the sketch also)

 

 

And today? Today my son is here (I’m a co-parent, he has been at his dad’s the last days) and he’s been ill for almost a week. Having the flue and a nasty cough. He stayed home from school last week and he’s sleeping even longer as adolescents use to do when they get a change… (He stayed in bed for so long today that I went upstairs to look if he was still alive!)

Today I also took another look at the LO I made and… Oh, well,
take a look at it yourself.
