This year has held so many different things. The biggest must have been selling my house. It was an easy decision (well, kind of), but held so many hard things in the process. I am a person with my heart on my sleeve and am an overtinker. To sell the house I´ve lived in for so long and where my daughter grew up was sad, but so good. Good because that had to happen for me to completly move on from my old life. It involved paperwork, hard phonecalls and long meetings with my bank. It also involved sorting and purging for months. While in the midst of it all it felt like it would never end. But it did and we could move to our new plave we love so much! We worked together and it felt so good to have my love´s support!
The year also held the decision to postpone our wedding. The stress and costs for the house sale took so much energy from us, so we knew we couldn´t plan a wedding ontop of that. We haven´t set a new date, although we thought it might be a year later. We´ve decided to let it be for a while. We still have and love eachother and that is all that matter.

This is the first spread I added in this years edition. It´s one I made for the December gallery at WCS. It talks about my favorites, the things that makes Christmas for me. You can read more about this here.

Around here the halls are decked and since we put up the tree last week it really does feel like Christmas. With the very mild weather we have had it feels like September!
Around here we have sent out almost all our Holiday mail. I have send out handmade Holiday cards for as long as I can remember. Since I love to get something else than bills in my mailbox I guess other people do too! And what if the cards a little bit late, they are still a nice suprise!
Around here we are all tired, With two people with anxiety issues and one with fatigue, this time of year is especially difficult. And with the dark days that we have here up north it´s so hard waking up early in the morning. We look forward to the Christmas break and 2 weeks off.
Around here we still have a few gifts to buy. We have been rather good at buying them all autumn to spread the costs a bit. We have been able to find some fun things for the ones on our list!
Around here the cats have been spending more and more time inside with the hard wind we have had lately. And once again I have decided that if I am ever re-born, I want to be a house cat!
Around here I am wrapping up my 4th year of documenting our everyday lifes with the pocket style scrapbooking. That is so cool! I am doing it all again in 2016 and by now it´s all automatic really.
Around here we celebrated Christmas a little bit early with my dad and daughter since she is spending Christmas at her dad´s this year. I love our traditions!
I´ll be back tomorrow with a look at my December minibook for this year!

Here is the second sketch. When I first started to prepare for this week, I thought I´d maybe make a few sketches myself. But then I stumbled over the Big Picture class Start with a sketch and Jen Chapin share so many fun sketches. I just picked two of my favorites! Note: This is not the sketch from the class! I have done one based on the sketch.

I have a post up at the WCS blog today as we start a weekly theme about sketches. I wanted to share it here too!
For me, sketches are a great help to get started with a project. I first had a hard time with them and it would usually help me to see a finshed layout to be able to either lift it and/or be inspired by it. But the more I scrapbooked the more confident I became in my own style and then I thought it was eaiser to use sketches.

Again, I handcut the letters and it doesn´t bother me if they are uneven or anything. I usually use my craft knife to rough up the edges after cutting them too.
