Lost and found

So I got lost for a little while there. But fear no more, I found my way back. In fact, when I woke up (way too early) this morning, I declared today to be “Take back my life” day. What better way to do this than getting back to this little blog of mine which used to be such a big part of my life. And I have to say, I miss it. A whole lot! I actually have quite a few things to show you on here but we’ll start with the album above… This is a travel mini-album … Continue reading Lost and found

Lazy’s Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool pour Lazy

I played with my sewing machine yesterday and finally make the chew toy I wrote about on Friday. I wanted some embellishments on it but nothing that a puppy could rip out and choke on. So it’s jeans on jeans. I put a plastic bag inside the form and then filled that with polyfill. The plastic bag gives it a bit of a crinkly noise. I hope that Lazy will like her new toy! J’ai joué avec ma machine à coudre hier et j’ai finalement fait le jouet à mordiller que j’ai mentionné Vendredi. Je voulais un peu d’embellissements dessus … Continue reading Lazy’s Kool Kreature – Kréature Kool pour Lazy

Inside my summer journal 7 – Dans mon journal estival 7

It’s been a while since I’ve shown you pages in my summer journal. I’ve decided to use the full pages for more than one day and so, I am continuing my journal until September 23rd. I will have another update for you this week. Ça fait un moment que je ne vous ai pas montré de pages dans mon journal estival. J’ai décidé de prendre les pages pleines pour plus d’une journée et ainsi, je continue mon journal jusqu’au 23 Septembre. J’aurai une autre mise à jour pour vous cette semaine.

Carved lines – Lignes gravées

I love stamps. I love carving. And I love lines. So this was bound to happen. Hand carved stamps with lines on them. And I love all three of them! Even with the little imperfections. Especially with the little imperfections! I know so many people who are crazy about perfection while I am the opposite. I love imperfection… well, only when it suits me! (Some things/moments just HAVE to be perfect.) So tell me, are you a perfectionist or do you embrace the little imperfections? (CeeCee, you don’t have to answer that!) 😉 J’aime les étampes. J’aime graver. Et j’aime … Continue reading Carved lines – Lignes gravées

Inside my summer journal 5 – Dans mon journal estival 5

More pages in my summer journal. The last 3 are from after the trip but since I was still jet-lagged, I think they still count as part of the trip! The last page seen here is a vellum envelop and inside, I put a postcard that my mother sent me from Barcelona… while we were there together! I love when she surprises me like that! Plus de pages de mon journal estival. Les 3 dernières sont des jours après le voyage mais comme je souffrais encore de décalage horaire, je pense qu’elles peuvent compter comme faisant partie du voyage! La … Continue reading Inside my summer journal 5 – Dans mon journal estival 5

Art journal for my mother – Journal artistique pour ma mère

My mother has started playing in art journals these past few months. She asked me to create a double journal so she could use it to do “likes” and “dislikes” pages. The photo is not the best but you get an idea of what it looks like. The pages are 8,5″ x 5,5″ and the whole book measures 9″ x 12″. Ma mère a commencé a jouer dans des journaux artistiques ces derniers mois. Elle m’a demandé de lui faire un journal double pour qu’elle puisse faire des pages “j’aime” et “j’aime pas”. La photo n’est pas super mais ça … Continue reading Art journal for my mother – Journal artistique pour ma mère
