My Passions

Hi there Bloglanders

While hopping along Blogland for my daily dose of  inspiration, I came upon a challenge from "another-freaking-scrappy-challenge".  Scrap your passions.  I normally only use Afrikaans in my titles so my first problem was - a decent word for Passion in Afrikaans. I couldn't come up with any.  "Liefde" (Love) was the best I could do but that doesn't sound as passionate as "Passion".

Second problem - I have a lot of passions. I sew, I bake, I cook, I read, I love my home, I love my family and the list continues into infinity.

Third problem - what to use and what to leave out.

Fourth problem - I'm really busy right now and just don't have to sort through pictures and have them printed. Remember, I'm from Sunny SA - African time applies here.

So I came up with this:

I used a quote as a title as I don't mind them being English - most of them are anyway.  Then I divided me passions into categories, journalled a bit about each and printed it vellum, tore the edges and glued them into a square.  As I keep all my left over pictures in a bin, I went through them and chose some that represent my passions.  I didn't cover them all but I used what I had.  I'm proud to say that I didn't have to pay for anything used on this page.

As part of my philosophy to "Live Light" in 2013  I plan to do more pages like this where I only use what I already have.

That's it. Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting. Please come back to play as I'll be sharing some more of my crafting fun right here on Play as U Go.


  1. So fortunate that my girls where the recipients of some of your passions! They always love it when tannie ("aunty") Hazel dress them up for special occasions. Your layout made me relive some of those special times again! Thank you x

  2. Hazel - this is a great use of what you already have! I enjoyed your take on our challenge, and hope to see you play along again soon at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge!!

  3. Great job here!
