I'm a Night Owl - The Get-To-Know-You CKC Blog Hop

Hello! For a final blow-out for our February Counterfeit Kits, some of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Design Team are taking you on a hop to get to know us as individuals a little better! You should have arrived via the wonderful Jemma at Just Jimjams, and I'll send you onwards at the end of this post!

We've made some projects, inspired by one or two journaling sheets from the lovely Christie Zimmer at Grace is Overrated. I chose to use the 'anti-to-do-list' which you can find on Christie's blog HERE.

Here's mine all filled in (I added a bit of colour round the edges of mine with washi tape and stamps from my kit):


When reading over this and thinking of a project to make, what most jumped out at me was how much of a night owl I am. I was filling the sheet out at about 11pm at night, I still had lots to do, and my mind was buzzing with ideas. I was multi-tasking lots of things at once (watching tv, printing party invites, filling out this journal sheet, and about to start a stack of ironing). I don't often go to bed before midnight, as I'm most productive at night. So I documented this part-of-me on my layout.

I am a Night Owl not an Early Bird:


If you can't make out the journaling, it reads:

'Most evenings I will be up until mid-night. I have lots to do in the evenings...blog reading, dishes, ironing, crafting, watching tv. I'm usually doing at least two of these at once! If I try to go to sleep any earlier then I just lie awake for hours - things whirl around in my head. It's better if I feel I've achieved lots! And no matter how late it is when I go to bed, I always find a few minutes for a game of Bejewelled Blitz!'

The black chevron bit at the top right of the page, which looks like tape, was actually part of the Pink Paislee Portfolio paper. I just cut around the bottom half of it with a craft knife and slid my other sheet of paper underneath, so it looks like it's taped into place:


The cute owl is cut using my Slice Design cutter and the Fall/Back to School Design Card. I had fun building a little background for him using embellies in my kit:


So tell me, are you a night owl, an early bird, or somewhere in between? 

Now it's time for you to hop onwards to the fabulous Julie at His Glory Girl. If you get lost anywhere along the hop then here's the full list for you:

OOhh love your page. I am not a night owl anymore but not an early riser either!!! I guess I just love my bed.

I'm a night owl forced to get up early in the morning. By the end of the week, I'm a mess. I just can't put myself to bed - I feel like I'm just getting started!

And my current game obsession is Candy Crush :).

Dawn said...

Love the no photo page! I would say I'm more of an early bird than a night owl but it does depend on what I've been doing. Off to pin your page for inspiration in the future!

Looooove this layout! The owl is adorable and I love how you've made the page with no photos. Fabulous!

Mel said...

Love the layout - I'm normally a night owl and defo not a morning person but now I am preggers I go to bed pretty early!

Christie said...

Hi Jennifer - So nice to read another night owl's thoughts on the subject. Like you, I tend to use late nights as a mad dash to finish off all of the day's odds and ends. So much better than lying there with swirling thoughts. :) I loved reading your page and seeing your inspired layout. (P.S. The anti-to-do list is my absolute favourite.)

Maria Ontiveros said...

I love your layout! Perfect embellishment, and I think it will be something that you will enjoy being able to look back at.

brilliant inspiration page about you - love it.
Great idea cutting the background paper like that too.

Lisa said...

Well, I'm certainly not an early bird but I'm not as much of a night owl as I'd like to be. I get tired! But I fight it with everything I can and often potter around till anything up to 1am. I adore your page. It's gorgeous. There''s so much to take in. Simply lovely

Somewhere in between for me ... this is a brilliant page - such a fun thing to scrap about! Cute owl.
