Something scrappy

I’ve been working with photos from our 2007 trip to the Big Island of Hawaii over the past few months. It might seem a bit of overkill to create an album of 12×12 layouts devoted to just one 10-day holiday, but I’ve been having a great time re-living some of our adventures. In fact, one album is completely full and I’ve started on volume two….

Over in another corner of blog land Jennifer Grace has started her annual Frosty Festivities event for 2015, and although my layout’s not at all frosty or festive, I used some inspiration from her first post in the series to create this:

Brave - the story of Richard's snorkelling adventures in Volcano National Park.

There are lots of ideas still to come in the Frosty Festivities series, and some fantastic give-aways, so why not play along too?

Sharing the space

I knew that time was running out.
I knew it was selfish to have all that space for craft.
I know I started it by giving him lessons for Christmas last year.
Since last Tuesday the craft-guest room upstairs in the garage has also been home to this….

I’m getting used to the muted bang, thump, clash when Richard goes to practice (not game to be in the room at the time though!). He is so very pleased to have a drum kit at last I can’t really be sad that “my” space is now “ours”.

Goodbye craft space. Hello hobbies room!
