This time last year- Shimelle Prompt

Another quick post prompted by BFS day 13

This time last year, Adventures in Pickle Land didn't exist. It hadn't entered my head at all to create a little blog. In fact, I used take the micky out of some blogs that I had previously viewed- thinking they were so mushy and saccharin sweet.

I scrapbooked and card made sporadically (well even more sporadically than I used to). I didn't really have an outlet to show my scrapbook pages - other than my BF Chris and AJ.

What a difference a year has made.

I started Adventures in Pickle Land in June 2010, so nearly 10 months ago. I feel I am scrapbooking more and developing my own style. I'm enjoying blog hopping and discovering new blogs. I'm developing my writing style and finding my own voice. I an constantly thinking scrapbooking and scrapbook layouts. I even visit places with scrapbooking in mind and get AJ in on the act.

For example, this weekend, AJ and I visited London, so we have kept train and Underground tickets, collected maps and leaflets and AJ took a few photos too.

(I'll be writing about our visit to London this weekend when hopefully AJ has sent me across all the pics he took and I can make a scrapbook layout or two).

I have enjoyed posting a few pictures (especially of my cats Kiwi and Willow), scrapbook layouts, cards, and general musings over the past ten months. It has kept me occupied and I think more creative than I ever thought possible just one year ago.

Good Evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley xx


  1. So cool that you're getting so much out of blogging than you ever thought you would. I love it too! I can't exactly say why but I think I'd do it even if nobody ever stopped by (and many days, they don't)!

  2. Well, I for one am glad you began :-)
