Faux Leather Cover for Blogger’s Notebook

When making covers for often-used notebooks that you carry around with you, not only looks should be a consideration but also durability. I had to make that experience the hard way with my blogger’s notebook cover.

It had a very nice look to it, but it was just not suited to being carried around in a small handbag all day long, 7 days a week. Continue reading

My Creative Month – August 2015

I was quite busy in August—both workwise and creativity-wise. I’m totally exhausted but also impressed about all the things I did get done despite my tight working schedule.

Pizza Rolls

I love good food and I love cooking and baking. But I have way less time for it than I’d like. So I’m always excited about finding interesting-looking recipes but hardly ever get around to trying them out.

A few months ago, therefore, I made the resolution that I’d try out at least one new recipe every month. So far that is working, although it hardly ever gets more than one. But hey, that’s already progress in comparison to zero! 😉

The new recipe in August were those delicious pizza rolls, which I’m very likely to make again since my folks and I loved them so much.

DIY Notebook and Folder Decoration

For back to school time, I worked on three ways to decorate notebooks and folders. Not just nice for school, but also for the (home)office. 😉

Photo Book Year 2015, Part 1

Since the year is more than half over, I decided I could already start with the photo book for this year…

year2015-2

Since in last year’s photo book I found that I’d included too few pictures (it takes too short a time to look through it), this time I wanted to include more pictures. So I already filled one book and will be splitting it up in two parts again.

I’m also trying out a new format: 20×20 cm. I’m curious to see how it turns out once it is printed. However, I can already say that I like A5 horizontal much better because pictures are usually roughly in that format and it is just easier to fit them in.

New Cover for DIY Blogger’s Notebook

Carrying it around in my bag 24/7 made the cover of the blogger’s notebook look not so nice anymore.

I thought it was time for something more durable. I’m going to show you more of it in its own post soon.

Story Cubes

I’ve told you guys about the story cubes before when I discovered them in January. Now I took the next step and got some myself. I haven’t had time to try them out yet because they just arrived. But I still love them. I’m very excited to try them out.
