Simple Love: The Gossamer Blue Inspiration Blog Hop

So if we're half way through January (though that hardly seems possible) it must be time for the Gossamer Blue Inspiration Blog Hop; and the chance to pick up a fresh idea or two from some of the team


The January kits do a wonderful job of moving us into The New Year, with more than a hint of Valentine's Day love in pretty pinks and reds. So sweet!


Valentine's Day isn't a big thing round here, though; so I found other subjects for my main pages. And yet..how could I resist those cupid arrows completely? I came up with a different way to use some of the love. My inspiration layout this month is about simple loves: those little things, the day brighteners, the mood lifters. I made a list


Maybe you have one too? What puts a smile on your face? How about creating a Valentine's page with a difference.

You'll find lots more Gossamer Blue inspiration on our list! Start with the lovely Alex right here:
Alex Hunter Anabelle O'Malley Andrea Gray Brenda Weaver Chantal Philippe Diane Payne Emily Spahn Eyoung Lee France Wisniewski Heather Leopard Jill Keller Joy Taylor Kasia "Antilight" Petrus Kathleen Graumüller Kellie Winnell Kelly Xenos Michelle Wedertz Olatz Garaiyurrebaso Sandra Dietrich Sian Fair

and find the kits here. You're sure to find something to love.

Great idea - Simple Likes. I like the photo of yourself peeking out from behind the list - neat idea. I'm with you on clean sheets on the bed.

Karen said...

I love this list; things like that show up on my gratitude list, and it makes for a wonderful page.

Brenda Weaver said...

That is a great list! I love the photo peeking out on the side. Such a fun layout!

Jane said...

I agree with your list, little pleasures but they make a day special.

Susanne said...

Oh what a pretty layout - it lifts my mood - as much as those things lift yours. Maybe on this dreary rainy January day, I should attempt the same thing.

Jill Keller said...

Perfect idea for a layout Sian! Brilliant page :)

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Ah, simple pleasures. Clean sheets, fresh coffee and happy mail are right up there for me too.

Jennifer Shaw said...

A great list! I love how the design of this page focuses on the journaling. It's wonderful.

Sandra said...

As a list girl, this fills my heart with joy. It is all about the simple things in life

What a great way to use some Valentine themed products. We don't make a huge deal out of Valentine's day either. I love your title---SIMPLE. I just might have to use it myself!

Alison said...

Love how you've used your photo! Xx

Kellie said...

It's funny how often the simple little things are actually what makes us happy. I've never thought to document them and I love your creative layout to share yours!

Mitra Pratt said...

My favorite little thing is a bathrobe on a weekend and not having to rush around! Love your layout, so lovely! Hugs!

bananafish said...

I am definitely going to borrow this idea. I love this layout and the way you documented your simple pleasures:)

Linda Batson said...

At first I was uncertain about doing a list....but, then it hit me. No better way to express your love of someone then making the list be what you think or feel they do for you. Or even how they make you feel. Yes, the list is a good idea. Thank you

Michelle said...

Making a list is such a great idea! Awesome layout :).

Love your idea of adapting the Valentine's Day theme.
It's a gorgeous page and very interesting too!
Thank You~

Melissa said...

Fantastic idea for a page using those Valentine products! I would have to include "the first sip from an ice-cold can of Coca-Cola" and "sunshine" to my list!

Mel said...

I agree with so many of these. One of my earliest random school memories is my year 4 teacher telling us she loved to be the fist one go read a magazine. Lunch out is my love language.

Jo said...

A really lovely page and such a cheeky little photo tucked in there :)

Missus Wookie said...

Oh nice photo and lovely list. I do like such right here right now journalling pages. Valentine's Day isn't a big thing here either but loving other things? Oh yes!

Sandie said...

A lovely page Sian. Valentine's day is pretty low key here too, though it was lovely to receive happy mail from a girlfriend in form of a Valentine's card! I love how you used this idea of love and I can share some of those on your list. The smell of fresh coffee is so evocative, and clean sheets on a bed - oh yes!!! Especially when I have a good book to read ;)

Gail said...

What a great idea! I must remember it when I get home! Btw, I especially like your second o e. :)
