pain & grief

hi everyone, i have a new layout…
i am a bit nervous about this one and the story, because… nobody else is talking about it! It´s not easy for me to do so, but it is also kind of a therapy for me!
it happened and i can´t change it…



i had a miscarriage back in june… the fact that we got pregnant was a real surprise, also shocked us but in a postivie way… i wanted another baby for so long, but because of some serious hormonal problems it was not possible. i should have taken medication and i have done that a few times, and it was a real nightmare – the hope to get two lines each and every month, I did not want to go through this again and so we decided against another child. i had to fight with the situation, i was sad – very sad!

and then i started to feel sick all day long… i was tired and OH SO sick!
i´ve decided to make a test but i was pretty sure about the result…
my heart was so full of happiness, i cried tears of joy!!
all ended in the first week of june, the worst day was a friday (6/9/17) – i was at home alone and i had to call the ambulance because of the pain! They took me off and directly into the hospital and the operation room for a emergency surgery… worst day ever!
i have gone through this three times, but it is not getting easier… nope! this time was the worst and hardest one!! still dealing with it!

so, that´s it… my worst story from 2017!

Lawn Fawn & Scrapbook Adhesive BlogHop

Hi everyone, Jana here with a little fun project for you!
Christmas is just a few weeks ago (seriously, only 14 fridays left) and i really love to decorate my presents, buuuuut… i am always late! so my idea for this bloghop was to create some christmas tags! yay!


i started with two new stamp and die sets from LawnFawn


also grabbed some craft tags and random papers from my stash… some gold glitter paper, some vellum and gift wrapping paper with some flocked stars on it! found it in our local 1€ store – love it!


stamped a lot of the very cute otter and used the matching die to get them „cut out“
used the Wreath Die for many many wreaths from the different papers


layered three wreaths together and pulled the otter half way through to let him peek out… one of the wreath behind all of them and glued them together!


i just had the best of time creating them! love how they turned out and i can´t wait to decorate my presents with them!! ❤



please join our BlogHop and visit the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog to see what the other girls created! don´t forget to join the giveaway!!

the little things!

hi everyone, i grabbed the current moodboard from the JOT blog and had some fun!
the last two months were very terrible and it took me some time to get back on my scrapping table, but i made it… it helped me to get through this…
this layout, not for the challenge, was the first one i scrapped… i cried when i was making it! but it was kinda good to get the page done!


but life goes on and…. yeah, you know what i mean, right?!
so, let´s talk about the moodboard challenge, i am always a big fan of the moodboards, and this one is no exception! all the gold…. *love


i just love how this turned out!! the touch of black here, LOVE!
there is no black on the moodboard but you know, i need black on a page, especially when the layout is that bright!


are you a fan of moodboards?!
i have a process video for this one, so please check out my youtube channel if you like to see it! CLICK
