what happened? we ate at a mongolian barbecue with friends. a friend came home after 6 months abroad. i drove home for the weekend because i had to install all tech gadgets my sister got for her business. filou (or “the baby”, my cat at home) completely ignored me but came by for some treats. my sister dyed my hair – now they are mocha blond with a few blond highlights. family lunch at another monglian barbecue. my brother built our cocktail shelf and i finally got a photo of my dad with his new glasses (it’s a little bit blurry but i love it).

i mainly used the studio calico copper mountain project life kit. the meal stamp is from the kelly purkey foodie stamp set. the other half of the “what i love most about …” card i used as part of the background for my instax. therefore i used the kelly purkey chevron die on the remaining 3×4 card and then adjusted it.

what happened? we finally had some snow in linz – only for a few days and only one month too late. i enlarged the photo and used the kelly purkey “winter is here” stamp on it. k’s aunt had a 50s party and i took some instax photos for the guestbook. the problem with instax photos is that you have them only once. so i took a photo of the photo hence i have one for project life. the “xoxo”-flag is from the studio calico cuppa project life kit. the grey stripped journal card with the quote on it is from the studio calico copper mountain project life kit and the 4×6 journal card is from the sunshine edition.

we’re completely into breaking bad – so i had to include a picture of the seasons we already have (photo is processed with the waterlogue app). also i have found a few new cocktails therefore i included the recipe of my new favorite (called vanity). the ampersand card is from life-love-paper and was included in the studio calico blue note project life kit. the grid cards are from the sunshine edition. the “jan 2014” vellum sticker is also from life-love-paper and was part of the sc copper mountain kit.

the other day i posted some project life spreads via instagram including my spread for december 4-8 – our new york shopping trip. this was my last spread for 2013. the quality is not that good, sorry. i work fulltime so the only available time to shoot some pictures (with my iphone 5s) is in the morning before leaving for work. but you get an idea and that’s all that counts, right?

i included some journaling on the photos, a flyer from macy’s and our hotel keycard. we stayed at the ace hotel (scored a pretty good deal) and it was just awesome. the skyline is a kelly purkey die.

i used some paper from the lawn fawn peace love joy 6×6 paper pad and a few bits and pieces from various studio calico project life kits.

(for the rest of my new york photos i will make a blurb photobook.)
