February in Focus: OLW Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Nihao, Cupcake! Blog

Welcome to to my stop on the One Little Word blog hop for February. If you’ve come from Margie’s blog, welcome! The full list of blogs is at the end of this post.

The Giveaway

My special giveaway this month is a brand spanking new Ella Publishing ebook on Stamping - scroll to the post below to enter!

The Prompt

We were asked to take 9 photos over the month to document/express our word. Even though I’ve not taken a lot of photos this month, I managed to find 9 that represented what I’m focusing on right now. I just should have found a photo of Phill to include!
I am sure I’m missing a few focus points (eg faith and sewing) but I like this reminder of what my life is about right now!
  • Baby Nano
  • Emily
  • Us
  • Phill’s new hobby (coffee making/latte art)
  • My health
  • Growing friends
  • Creativity
  • Scrapbooking
  • Gardening

    PS. My Big News!

    I'm so excited to share with you that I've been invited to teach at True Scrap 3! I'm the only Aussie instructor and I'd love to see some fellow Simple Aussie Girls there!
    Did you start scrapbooking with dreams of rows of finished albums?s
    Is the reality more like a cupboard of unfinished objects (UFOs)?
    In Finish what you Start I help you learn how you can actually finish a project, and get the results you want by focussing on what motivates you in your scrapbooking.
    • Prevent writer's block by using journalling you have already
    • Finish pages faster by keeping your process simple
    • Rescue half-finished projects by repurposing or finishing them with rediscovered motivation.
    • Get a headstart on your own project using printable worksheets
    • Have fun and get the project done!
    Join me for plenty of inspiration for your next project, or that little extra kick to get those UFOs done!

    Join me for the most awesome scrapbooking event EVER!

    I'm so thrilled to be teaching at True Scrap, and know it is well worth the $127 you pay to get in no matter what kind of memory keeper, scrapper, crafter or photographer you are!

    Love that you turned the 9 photos into a beautiful scrapbook layout!  I'm also "focusing" this year!

    I really like how you turned this into a 12x12 (it seems?) the colours go great with your photos! Excited to see that you do cross stitching!! I love doing it... only prob is I have a pretty modern taste when it comes to my house haha so I never do anything with the finished ones..

    Ruth said...

    A gorgeous set of photos that do justice to your word.

    Beautiful photos Melissa.  I love the summery colors, they are a great contrast to the wintery colours I'm seeing in New England (US).

    Missus Wookie said...

    Pretty papers - I'm enjoying spring here in London but that sunshine and garden is very tempting. I'm looking forward to TrueScrap3.

    Lisa said...

    I love how sweet and happy your photos are! 

    Naomi said...
