Travel Journal No. 2

Hello everyone,

I hope you all doing fine wherever you are on this wonderful world!

About two weeks ago, I took a trip to Gera to visit my best friend Kristin and her lovely daughter - my goddaughter apparently - for a few weeks. Of course I journaled about that special time in my travel journal afterwards. And with doing so, I filled the last pages of it.

Do you remember the plain Moleskine Cahier I turned into my travel journal in 2015? It looked like this:


Well, it's time for a new one now.
My choice once again fell on a Moleskine Cahier in paper bag brown. This time I decided to go for a more detailed but also quite simple design. So I went for a stack of suitcases I drew on the cover using colored pencils.



I am not a Picasso, I know that. But I love how it turned out :)

Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon!

Yours
Uta

PS: I am planning a little Autumn special for September - something for the crafty and planner loving people among us. So stay tuned, I'll be posting details soon!

NES Controller Pillow

Hey everyone,

every now and then I let my inner Nintendo nerd lead the way when it comes to pick new crafting projects. And that's when things like this happen :)

An NES Controller inspired pillow case made off crafting felt (a gift btw, I did not keep it):


It was quite a challenge to figure out the sizes of the different shapes. Luckily I am not that bad when it comes to math.

See you next week!

Yours
Uta

Final Notes on Camp Reset #TRGCampReset

Hi everyone,

as promised last week, here's my last blog post about Camp Reset!

Let's start with the rest of the Listers Gotta List cards:





The first challenge of week four was all about Memory Keeping. We were asked to print out some of the photos we took throughout the past weeks of Camp Reset and create a memory page in our journals. Here's how mine turned out:


The second challenge was to finish one of our WIPs. I chose to finish two projects. One I can show you today (a couple of different cotton pads), the second will be a present and therefore will be kept a secret for now :)


Alright, that's it!

See you all again next week!

Yours
Uta
