Oh the pretty

Sigur Rós

Long-time blog readers and those who read Scrapbook Inspirations will know I scrapbook about a particular band far too often. Perhaps it’s a character flaw. I like to think of it as more to do with pretty pictures and pretty music, but think of it what you will.

Scrapbook pages aside, they started a European tour last week and I was thrilled to score a photo pass to opening night, so not only pretty pictures and pretty music, but pretty pictures without tall people in the way! This was pretty exciting for short little me.

Anyway, now that the images are up on the band’s website, I can share a few here.

The rest of the set is here and their new album is here.

And just to make this scrapbook-related in some way, here’s the last time I scrapped them, as seen in Scrapbook Inspirations!

And two other little bits of housekeeping:
Journal your Christmas alumni should have received a welcome message yesterday. If you have changed your email address since last year, you’ll need to change it on the forum or by emailing me please.

The sneak peek from the last post is a quilted title page for a scrapbook—sewn straight onto a page protector. Click here for details including a free tutorial to download and print that walks you through, step by step.

And for the record, I am very sad about the disappearance of the Eggnog Latte from the world of red cups this year. Is this everywhere or just in the UK? Not that I will fly to America for a coffee, mind you. I promise.

    They don’t have the eggnog one here in NZ either and the one I’m really sad about is no special mint mocha frappachino’s with candy cane sprinkles :-(

    Cool band pics! I know what you mean about annoying heads in the way. We saw Cage The Elephant live on Friday and all my photos are obscured by noggins. Grrrrr.

    My JYC email arrived this morning. I can’t believe it’s almost that time again already! I don’t know where this year has gone.

    I have already bought some fat quarters and was going to make a fabric journal cover! Thanks for the picture. It’s great!! I have thick cardboard to put inside mine.I have a book about fabric journalling that inspired me. Now your wonderful idea has really convinced me that I should go ahead. Many thanks!!

    I’ve also already downloaded the applique tutorial. It’s fabulous, and I can’t wait to have a go myself.
    Thanks for sharing. :-)

    Hi Shimelle. So excited for your class. Lovely photos and thanks for the link to that project.
    p.s. eggnog should be back around Dec 1st. This year there are six holiday beverages at the bux.

  7. SarahLP Says:

    Oh what beautiful photos Shimelle! Hope I can take pics half as good some day..
    Can’t wait for JYC to start (but in no way ready for it)!
