clocks & wings

december 7th

It can indeed be romantic on a campsite... However, power and mobile network outages are too much romance for my nerves, especially when all the individual pieces of a project seem to fit together perfectly...

december 6th

I have the feeling that I have to tell you the biggest secret of my past to be able to bring my idea for today's prompt of DEPHEMEREMBER 2023 to life...

salvaged birds

december 5th

Sometimes, associations take twisted paths. That's how it was with my idea for the ephemera for today's prompt "salvaged birds".

Let's create a journaling card from trash, with salvaged birds made from an egg carton.

a butterfly & three torn things

december 4th

Let's create an ephemera inspired by our first official prompt for DEPHEMEREMBER 2023! I can't wait to show you a technique I've recently discovered, which is an absolute game-changer for me! Here's a little hint: we're going to make distress ink mediums waterproof and permanent on acetate... you heard right! (Thank me later, lol).

an unexpected letter from Ephy

december 1st

All day long, I had this strange feeling in my stomach! Now I know why! Our little craft buddy, Ephy, who will accompany us throughout DEPHEMEREMBER 2023, has written a letter to both me and Barbara and has given us a challenge! Want to know what it's about? Then watch the video, and maybe afterward, you'll feel like taking on Ephy's challenge too!

prompt list pocket

Wouldn't it be cool to have a pocket for this year's prompt list? So that it always has it's place... 


How about we get creative together and craft a little something?


Let's make a prompt list pocket together!

dephemerember pillow


You can come up with the best ideas while you're sleeping, can't you? However, it becomes a challenge when it comes to crafting because, I mean, I can't spend the entire day in bed. Bringing my craft supplies to bed would also pose a problem. So, how about we create a pillow for our craft desk? Haven't made a pillow before?

Well, neither have I. Let's give it a try together!

dephemerember journal cover


I used to think the worst thing that could happen in a craft room is clutter. However, I've learned otherwise. There's something even worse! And that is accidentally throwing away the piece you wanted to use for your dephemerember journal cover... I guess I'll have to improvise a bit today. But we are junk journalers, so it shouldn't be a problem, right?

artsy scraps swap


Join the fun & unbox a package from @49dragonflies with me! We've exchanged artsy paper scraps from our stash to use during dephemerember. 


For storage, we crafted a fabric bowl using some fabric scraps and glue! So much fun!

    Thank you so much!! This will be my first time doing the Dephemermber. I had a busy work schedule last year and didn't have much time to participate. I am going to try and do the whole month of Dephemermber since I have more vacation and holiday time to craft now. I love yours and Barbara's cute Ephy bags and pillows! This is going to be so much fun!!

    Hi Luise,
    You are always so generous and so inspirational. I don't think I ever knew that you were a maker for Tim Holtz until the selfie in a bubble video. That explains why you are so incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with tips for Tim's products. I absolutely love your file folder sample cards.

    Cheers from a Super fan,
