One Little Word check in

coffee-patterns-layout

Journaling reads:

Coffee by the beach every Sunday morning, rain or shine, was one of my favourite patterns when I lived in Wellington (NZ). Now that I am settled in Edinburgh I have started the habit again.

Different beach, different hemisphere, same coffee order, same pleasure.

I loved using this layered template from Paislee Press and having all those boxes to fill in or leave blank – this one is CP No 3; papers and outline rectangles from the Helping Hand collab kit from Sweete Shoppe.

My One Little Word this year is RHYTHM as in patterns and routines and seasonality.  I was prompted to get creative about one of my patterns by Rinda’s monthly reminder about getting arty to record intentions.  Check out her amazing art journal page and what others are doing to record their intention on her blog Gallo Organico.

Beautiful page. I love that patterned paper. Cool digi! Thank you thank you thank you for your lovely Happy Mail!!!!! It threw me off getting something from Scotland, when I went to look at the addresses on the spreadsheet they all said U.K...so much for what I know about U.K. mailing addressses I guess! I also scanned the list for someone with a first name Catt as I was looking for mail from someone named Helena...duh! LOL I was NOT feeling well and not myself obviously! Anyways, I loved the personal photo and the goodies too. Thanks so much again!!!!! xoxo
