>Photo Friday #13 – Vendredi photo #13

> Diesel loves to hide in my reusable shopping bags. And she loves to play with pieces of paper. I could not resist this shot. I’m going to be busy all weekend with my bellydance show. I’m nervous but excited. Hopefully I will have some photos to share with you, at least of my costumes. Have a nice weekend! Diesel aime se cacher dans mes sacs de magasinage réutilisables. Et elle aime jouer avec des morceaux de papier. Je ne pouvais résister à cette prise. J’ai une fin de semaine occupée avec mon spectacle de baladi. Je suis nerveuse mais … Continue reading >Photo Friday #13 – Vendredi photo #13

>Silly duck ATC – CAÉ Canard bizarre

> I have started making simple ATCs again, mostly because I want to have a few available to trade with my mother’s students. I love to encourage young talents and I think that trading ATCs with them is a great way to do so. I have a few in the works but this one was finished while watching the final game between the Habs and the Bruins. I rarely watch whole hockey games because I get over-excited but I just had to watch that one last night. Unfortunately, the Habs lost but it was a really great game. J’ai recommencé … Continue reading >Silly duck ATC – CAÉ Canard bizarre

>Vintage craft books – Livres d’artisanat vintages

> I love looking at old craft books. I have a few in my collection. I got the ones shown in this photo from my grandmother this past weekend. And I just had to show you these projects from the McCall’s Needlework & Crafts from 1970. My favourite is the patchwork skirt with the knit white bikini as a close second!J’aime regardé les vieux livres d’artisanat. J’en ai quelques-uns dans ma collection. J’ai reçu ceux photographiés ici de ma grand-mère pendant la fin de semaine. Et je me devais de vous montrer ces projets provenant du McCall’s Needlework & Crafts … Continue reading >Vintage craft books – Livres d’artisanat vintages

>Update on 365 – Mise à jour sur 365

> As it turns out, I am not able to create one journal per day but I still plan to make 365 journals in one year. So, some days will see more than one type of journal being constructed while other days will be about gathering materials and inspiration (I already have 4 books on making journals and books by hand.) Over the long weekend, I’ve managed to create 3 different models. Comme je m’y attendais, il m’est difficile de créer un journal par jour mais j’ai tout de même l’intention de faire 365 journaux en une année. Alors, certains … Continue reading >Update on 365 – Mise à jour sur 365

>Photo Friday on a Monday – Vendredi photo un lundi

> Last Friday, I forgot my Photo Friday post! Blame it on the excitement of a 4-day weekend. So instead, today, I have 2 low quality photos of wonderful animal sightings from yesterday. Vendredi dernier, j’ai oublié mon article du Vendredi photo. Je blâme l’excitation d’une fin de semaine de 4 jours. Alors, aujourd’hui, j’ai 2 photos de basse qualité qui vous montre des rencontres merveilleuses avec des animaux au cours de la journée d’hier.  Here, you can see a lot of Canadian Geese spotted in the morning. While the sun was setting, we passed an area where there were … Continue reading >Photo Friday on a Monday – Vendredi photo un lundi

>Stitched paper journal – Journal de papier cousu

> Day 3 of 365 mini journals. The challenge was to make something out of paper without using scissors or glue and without writing on it. This was easy: I simply folded 5 sheets of copy paper in half, one sheet of decorative paper and stitched them all together with a piece of linen. I added a few beads to the linen for decoration. Don’t worry, I’m not going to only blog about my daily journal making! I have other things in the works too. Jour 3 de 365 mini journaux. Le défi était de faire quelque chose avec du … Continue reading >Stitched paper journal – Journal de papier cousu
