Why do all my books get so fat?

I am trying to put some photos of things I have done on this blog to show you how I work and what I like.
Wherever I go I collect things- mostly small things like a ticket, a nice paper or a little button. When I start making a scrapbook I take my pictures, my collected stuff, my papers, ribbons etc and I put it all in a big boxlid. I stare at it for a while and then I get started.
I love all these patterned papers and the result of the different combinations you can make. None of my books can close because they all are so full of things. I like it like that. It makes the book more alive when I put little things inside. And when I take them out to show somebody I get a feeling like a flashback when I see a little label and I remember where and when I found it and why I put it in...
Do you all realize how many beautiful labels from jeans, shirts and pullovers there are out there just waiting to be found and used! My poor husband has to wear shirts that I buy for him just so that I can scrap the label....

The envelopebook "Lisa on tour".

Juhuu, it did work after all!!!!!

This evenings soup for the family;

10 garlic cloves

Heat up the butter and frie the garlic with the onion. Add the water and potatoes and let it cook for 10 min. Add the cubes with the broccoli and let it cook for another 10-15 min. Liquidize it and serve with some parmesan.
This soup will make you strong this winter and hopefully it will help you through the flu season without getting too ill...
