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!

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!

justbreathe

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

enjoylittle1

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!

sketch challenge @ hipkitclub

hi everyone, with the new design team that started back in march a few things changed for me… i not posting on the HKC blog anymore, or on the HKC FB Page… i joined the sketch team… we´re creating layouts on a weekly base and posting them into the member forum at facebook. it´s a fun group with challenges and sharing the work…

i already created a few layout based on some sketches, but you know how it works, right?! i don´t like to work right after the sketch, i love to flip it, cut it or change it in a few ways. let´s have a look on a few layouts from march

16998182_10158275482670720_1639473335754669090_n

that was the first sketch, created by Nicole Nowosad and this is what i´ve made…
i flipped the sketch and changed it from three photos to two… added a little element cluster instead of the 3rd photo…

the next sketch was from Tarrah

i cutted the sketch into half and flipped the sides…

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!
dreams3

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

dreams2

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!

dreams1
