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!
thanks for stopping

you rock | simple & clean

dreams… black cardstock!

hi everyone, gosh my little poor blog… long time no post here. it´s not easy for me to keep this one running but i love my blog and i don´t want to quit! so let´s work on that!!

i had my 4th blog birthday back in february, can you believe that i missed it, again?! so many unposted projects, maybe i should take some time to shedule a few posts?! that would be great, right?!
so, let´s start with a new layout i created to challenge myself. i am using white for my background most of the time… so i am always a bit scared to use pattern papers or cardstock that is not white…
for this layout i grabbed a piece of black cardstock… black! so dramatic and so dark *haha

i used a lot of gesso to brighten up the black and added some color splatters and i really love how this turned out!

i worked with some leftovers from a previous HipKit and i really love the touch of gold here!

the picture is one of my favorites… i made a few in a row from strechting over yawning and then sleeping… loooooove! i started with 2 photos for this page but it did not work! i had a hard time to get them both on this layout!

boy pages

hi and hello, i am a mom of 3 boys and i am married… even the pets are all male… so, that means i am allowed to scrap all the boys with all the cute scrapbooking things, including flowers, pinks and aaaaaaaaaaaall the pretty stuff! i have a new layout and it´s about my hubby, getting his new tattoo…
koiloveand i used a lot of flowers and pink! hearts and curly fonts, not very masculine, right?! but it´s working for me 😉 i don´t even ask one of the boys for their opinion… see, it´s working!

this page was inspired by the new moodboard at the JOT blog … i also made a video, but the light was not the best and it was changing very quickly, darker and darker within a few minutes – so i needed to stop! you can watch it here – CLICK

 

the next page i want to share is this one…. made with the january 2017 HipKitClub Kits.

loveyou1

a big flower and some cute butterflies… for a lil boy!

hi and hello, Jessica and i started a new little YouTube series called „lift it!“ and yes, it´s a scraplift series 😉 we´re lifting each other and we´re not telling us which one we picked for the week… know what i mean?!
This layout is from last week! Jesscia is the Queen of big bright colors, but for the first lift i choosed one without many colors! i think i´ve told you all about me and bright colors, right?!
