Podcast Episode 2: Against the Clock

Podcast Powered By Podbean
Show Notes

In this show, you can listen to my thoughts on making some time for scrapping, catch up on a couple of recommendations and hear about two or three of the minor mishaps that I've encountered this week.  So get your stash out and enjoy some scrapbooking talk :D

Unfinished page the first is below, and the second attempt (to discover if the first go with an hour to play with was a fluke) is above.

Seriously, just be cool.

Beautiful words, lovely pictures and something to curl up with

An inspiring blog with unique, hand-crafted style

Thanks for listening :D

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this or take on board any suggestions.  Please do leave a comment below or post me an email to journalofcuriousthings at gmail dot com.

You can stream the episode above or download on iTunes by searching for 'Journal of Curious Things' Star ratings and reviews on iTunes are vastly appreciated and if you feel so inclined, I'd love to spread the word, so do pop a mention on your blog.

P.S. New Nigella tonight?  FanTAStic. What with the Bake-Off tomorrow, I'm becoming spoiled...

P.P.S. It can take up to 24 hours for the new episode to appear in iTunes, so patience, grasshopper, it will be there,

P.P.P.S. It's also entirely possible that I've done the technical bit wrong and it won't.  But don't be sad: you can join in the banging-head-on-desk party that I hold every time I have a stand off with a computer :D


  1. I LOVE this! Thank you for mentioning my blog! What is the song playing right at the beginning. It sounds like Taylor Swift? It's beautiful! xx

  2. Brilliant once again Kirsty, I just love it :D I had just emailed you back last night saying how excited I was for the next installment, when I saw that you had a new episode posted! The idea of setting an hour to see what you can get done is brilliant, something I may have to try. Can't wait to see the finished pages. The Breakfast Club story was hilarious - definitely one to get in the scrapbook, even if you have to go back and pretend to be cool again just to get photos!!
    P.S. Loved Nigella last night...and it's nearly Bake Off time yay!
    P.P.S. Off to iTunes to give a positive rating right now :D

  3. Wow, all that "white space" and yet it still looks amazing (even unfinished)!

    Kirsty, you were sad to miss the first Bloggers' Weekend last November. I'm trying to organise another, for December - see this:
    Hope you can come! X

  4. Woo-hoo! New Dates to choose from, for Bloggers' Weekend - go and see on my blog! X

  5. Thank you for introducing me to podcasts! & making housework that little bit more pleasant. While doing those mundane chores it gives me time to listen & reflect on what you're saying. I listened to both, one after the other.
    Does anyone else talk back? Or is this just one of my own crazy quirks?

    1. Yep, I found myself answering a few times too ;)

  6. Love your podcasts! Only comment for this one is a technical one - sometimes you're louder than others. Dunno if it's fixable or if it even matters really though :-)

    1. I was going to mention this as well. It sounds to me like you are moving away from the mike a couple of times?

  7. Just had time to listen to this - really enjoyed listening to it and seeing your pages too. Hope the cold is better x

  8. I felt a great kinship with you while listening to your process!!! I too can be called a "patient scrapbooker" (much better that slow scraper!) and my back and forth process sounds very much like yours! I need to look at my work in progress with fresh eyes at least a couple of times before glueing everything down... other than this connection that listening to you provided me, I enjoyed the recommendations and the storytelling. Keep it up!

  9. Oh, and I am off to google the Bake-Off! :D
