Home

I am back from our family holiday feeling inspired, refreshed and energised, ready to start creating as soon as possible. It was a good week, but I am glad to be home. The last few days it was unfortunately dull and raining, and we came back home, where it is... dull and raining! But there is nothing I love more than to create inside safe and warm when there is a storm outside.

I want to share some of my holiday snaps with you this week as well as some of the outfits I wore. I also bought a lot of new clothes and shoes, which I cant wait to show you guys!
I have been very inspired to get back into 12 x 12" scrapbooking. I feel daunted by the big page and I am never happy with the layouts I make so I am going to create it more like my life journal. I think it will be interesting to create, experimenting with a large format will push my boundaries and it is out of my comfort zone, so I am excited to start :) I will of course share my progress with you!
I bought some old reference books from charity shops too, and I plan to cut them up to include on my pages and create a decoupage/collage feel. I also picked up the most beautiful vintage flower book which I'd like to show you.
Love
Katie

  1. Welcome back! That's too bad it was dull and raining towards the end, but I know what you mean about liking to just cuddle up inside when it is storming! I just don't like it when it thunders because it scares my dog SO much. I'm excited to see what you got, and the new things you will be creating! :)
