I invite you into my creative, messy life with another post of random photos.
White paper box from IKEA, for storing away this and that. A birthday gift from mom.
Handmade teddy bears. Gifted to newborn twin girls.
A new cute owl for iHanna: it’s a yellow timer for my tiny kitchen.
Embroidered bracelet by Margot. She made it for herself and then gifted it to me. I love it!
Bought hand dyed embroidery wool from Elisabet, but haven’t used it yet…
Owl image on my android cell phone [found via How about orange]
Trying to write some lists in the journal that Tammy sent me in our swap. The list ideas we came up with together are giving me a hard time, but once I finish I will show the journal! It’s so pretty.
My previous photography filled post was called A Creative Life in Snapshots, but now I think that is too long for a reoccurring series of posts. Maybe Creativity in Snapshots is more catchy? That it’s about my life is quite obvious anyway…
What do you think? Got a better suggestion? Did you enjoy this post?
I love looking at snapshots like these and I make a lot of them myself too (don’t always post them, but they are made, yes they are). There’s something inspiring about watching other people’s materials and goings on in the creative field. So keep them coming please! As for a name: creativity is snapshots seems very catchy to me.
Thanks Caatje, I think I will keep the title Creativity in snapshots, at least for a while… Too bad I take more photos than I have time to edit & upload… Or maybe it’s a good thing that life is preventing me from blogging and not the other way around. :-)
whatever you call it, it’s fun to see these snapshots of your creative life!
oh, this photo is Delicious!!!
Those teddy bears are so sweet, and I love the little owl timer for the kitchen! The embroidered bracelet is just amazing…what a treasure to wear; I bet it looks great! I love snapshots like these…please keep them coming, and call them whatever you like! :-)
I think ‘creativity in snapshops’ is more catchy. I love to do paper sew journals too. One question? I include all types of paper, small 3D items, etc, but I also like to add pictures. What’s the verdict on acidity in the paper leeching into and ruining the photographs? And I suppose, does it really matter, b/c most (if not all) my pictures are backed up digitally. What are you thoughts?
Hi Melissa, I’m not a scrapbooker so when I use my own photos I use laser prints from my computer, not copies on photo paper. I don’t care about longevity or acid free surroundings, but to many others it’s a BIG thing. But if you ask me, just go for it and do what feels right. If it doesn’t hold together for ever, so be it… ;-)
Creativity in a Snap
Life in a Snap
Snapping a Creative Life
Hmmmmm….I might have to use one of those!
Hi Gerti, all of those are great, I hope you will use one of them. I think I might stick with “snapshots”, I really like that word! It just says exactly what they are.
