paper rosettes

I hope your holiday time was peaceful and happy!!

I haven't had enough of winter mood - probably because it hasn't come to California yet - no snow in the mountains and no so-needed rain.
And this is why you see a snowflake in the new set of paper rosettes!  :-)

You can find it here.
(there is also a CU version available)

california dreamin'

…is not the title of the kit but a name the song that keeps playing in my head over and over (by Mamas And The Papas, written in 1963 ) and which inspired the name of this beauty. It's a song which evokes memories of dry winter chills in me. If you have similar recollections, than this kits is definitely for you.

paper roses 1 and updates

I am really having fun doing paper crafts now.  My working table is constantly occupied by my new Gelli plate, piles of papers, stamping material and tubes with acrylic paint. 
I started a group named Gelli Printing on Facebook to which anyone is welcome! My blog doesn't sport the Addicted To Gelli badge but it definitely should!  lol
Here are some examples of my prints:

a chance to win september mist

My newest baby (yes I love the kits I make that much, lol) - September Mist.

Where I live, September feels almost like Summer, only with nights considerably colder. From Europe, I remember (occasional) beautiful hazy mornings, the sun seemingly shy to pierce though the fog.

If you take time to leave a comment with a couple of words about what a September looks like where you are, you can win this kit. Multiply your chances by doing the same on my Facebook page or at Mscraps.
I'll pick one winner Thursday morning (PST).

still in february

I started Project Life reluctantly, I was worried that I won't have enough of photos to fill my weekly layouts. Turned out that I have too many!

Almost every week (so far), I managed to make 2-3 layouts per week. It seems that there is a lot going on in my life :-)

I found a great app to help me with logging the daily little things - and the big ones as well...Day One.
I can attach a photo, tag, location or weather info to each daily entries. It has simple formatting like bold  or italic text, lists or headers.
I run my desktop version next to Photoshop so I can see the events when hovering over a date with my mouse. I can log entries from either desktop, iPad or iPhone.

project life - january

I decided to give it a try and test my ability to stick to things. Having grown and out of the house kids I  fear there won't be enough of life events to documents, not enough of daily meaningful snapshots.
Nevertheless, I will attempt to continue my efforts to chronicle our lives.

Here is the four weeks of January:
