13 loves {June 2013}

A bit late this month but here's what I'm loving this month:


A new (to me) online shop which specialises in washi and flair buttons, as well as some digital papers and label elements, and some über-cute chevron bags - and who doesn't love those right now? The shop is really pretty and full of scrumptious goodies. Definitely one to check out.

Time with my two brothers. I have spent time with each of them alone over here in Germany, but never both of them at the same time. It was an "experience" and I loved it!


This just sums up my life. Made me smile - wryly.

June was a crazy busy time with one visitor arriving after the next. My bestie arrived the night my two brothers left town and stayed for the weekend. We don't spend much time together these days so it was a weekend with a whole lot of chatting and soul searching late into the night.


Love Paris. Love Audrey Hepburn. Not sure I'd want this but the sentiment certainly rings true.

I was invited to join the Scrapabilly design team (I talked about it here and here.) Sylvia's shop is an amazing treasure trove crammed full of gorgeous stash and I'm delighted and honoured to have been asked, and so warmly welcomed, onto the team. Watch this space for the new kit creations at the beginning of July. Another gorgeous kit. :-)

The next visitor during June was this little bundle of joy (and she brought her mum and dad along too!).

It was a fantastic opportunity for me to carry on getting to know her and we had a whole lot of fun. Uncle R filled the garden with fun stuff for her to enjoy, including this swing. She squealed with joy!


Enjoying using the Scrapabilly kit to capture the progression of aforementioned, über-cute niece. Love this little one, love this page.


Saw these on Pinterest. They would be an absolute must buy for me if I could get them over here. Will have to keep my eyes open for something similar in the shops round here. Aren't they super?

My baby niece thoughtfully brought her mummy with her - my baby, baby sister. It was so wonderful to have some one-on-one (well along with a house full of husbands, babies, daddies and brothers!) time with her. It was a crazy month with so many visitors (in fact it's been like this since the end of April!) but I wouldn't have changed it for the world. I can't remember the last time we had some quiet time with each other and I was happy to get this photo of the two of us together. Love this girl!


My Instax is being well-used and I can't resist this combination of the two of us on this mini format polaroid. This will be hitting a scrapbook page in the very near future.


No pink picks this month but another mint green love. Unlikely to be getting this in the near future (Ha ha!) but love it all the same.

Like I said, it's been a crazy month with guests coming and going through the house at a rate of knots which meant that there wasn't much time for much else. But it was wonderful. July will be just as busy with both brothers moving in for the month and several events on the calendar that we will all be involved in. I'm excited to share that with you too as it happens. In the meantime, hope June is treating you well and if you have 13 loves, we'd love to see them.

13 loves is a series started off by my inspirational best friend Pam over at Daily Pamage.


  1. Ooh those washi tapes are gorgeous! :)

  2. Awesome post Lisa! Lots of sweetness, (in the photos), and great shares. You have been one busy girl. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hear you, reading all the blogs really is time consuming. I think of you often and stop by once in awhile. No worries! Love your layouts as always! Take care!

  3. Busy, busy times Lisa. Love that LO of you and your brothers. And those shoes - gorgeous.

  4. WOW!! I'm tired just reading this :)

    Congratulations on the new Design Team. I need to check it out.
