I've been rather busy at work and my daughter was finishing kindergarden last friday so there are many changes at this point. She'll be starting in 1. grade this fall so my mothers heart is a littlebit broken :/ She's getting sooooo BIG!!!
And we will also be moving in the end of august / beginning of september and we are so happy because we are gonna have an extra room wich will be hobby room /office / guest room :D
So, finally I'll be able to organize my things, just the way I want to ;o)
Oh, and I just have to tell you... Last friday I ordered a small package from Papirloftet (online Norwegian scrapbooking store) and I just can't wait to get what I ordered and try it out!!!
The package contains 3 Magnolias, 1 set of Nestabilities and 3 different colours of pearl brads that I've had on my wishlist for months!!! I hope to recive it soon so I can start to do something fun with it :D
Well... I'm off to do some cooking for my hubby and daughter.

Well, here I am with my newest card :D
This one is made for my oldest and dearest friend of all, Jónína.
Her brother is gratuating soon as a carpenter (not finished with the workpart though, only school) and she asked me to make a card for him.
This card is made with the Friday Skechers sketch 101
That sketch was designed my dear Jacque and of course I had to participate!!!
This is a Magnolia image, Edwin with a balloon, papers are from Bazzill, Shabby princess and DCWV.
I also used my new Nestabilities classic oval circle and classic scalloped circle. I gave myself those two Nestabilities sets as a birthday present because I'm turning 30 on Sunday, May 16th!!! :O
Since the boy is graduating as a carpenter, I wanted to have some screws on the card because I felt it needed a connection to his gratuation. I tried to find a Magnolia Edwin which had a hammer in his hand, but didn't find one... So, this was the best thing I could do. The screws are from Tim Holtz (the small ones) and I think the large ones are from Making Memories.
Here is a close-up of the Nestabilities and Edwin. I desided to follow my favorite cardmakers advise, Jacque, to round the edges of the image a little bit for a dimension. This became so cute!!! I surely recommend it to anyone :D
The layer under the image and the Nestabilities are on 3D cusions for more dimensions.

Yes, when I finally got around to do some cardmaking, I sure managed to do more than just one!!!
This one was supposed to be for a spring-challenge, but I didn't finish it in time... But here goes anyway. It doesn't show, but there is Stickles on the apron and the broom.
I didn't help Ástrós Erla very much. She chose the papers, flowers, ribbon and the image all by herself. She also did all the colouring herself. I only helped her glueing everything together and fixed the image a little bit for her (she asked me to) where her colouring had gone a little bit out of hand ;)

It's a Swedish blog and the girl's name is Hanna. I say it's a girl because she is only thirteen, yes 13!!! She is just amazing, I'll tell you!!!
But she is soooo talented and already, she's a DT member at Magnolia's :)
How cool is that for a thirteen year old?!?!?!
Please, check out her blog and she also have a blog candy that ends March 5th. There is a link on my sidebar ;)

I'm still alive, even though the snow is almost drowning us here in Norway!!!
It doesn't seem like it going to stop but I hope it will sooner than later. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE snow, but this is getting out of hand I think. The snow in our garden is around 1 meter high at this point and getting higher as it is snowing outside as we speak.
I've been wondering how to organize my scrapbooking supplies and since I didn't have a table to work on, I got this great idea to get our kitchentable out of the garage and use that for the time being. It's now up in my little corner and I'm just trying to organize my stuff so I can start to do something creative again!!! My fingers are itching and they are itching bad so this will be done very soon... I hope.
Few days ago I came across this great blog: CRAFTY STORAGE
Have you guys seen it before???
It's absolutely amazing and what a great overview of many different storage ideas!!!
Well, browsing through that blog I found another fantastic blog, Stacy sure knows how to organize and she just became my rolemodel for organizing!!!
Oh, and before I forget...
Jacque has some wonderful SWEET STUFF give-away again... There is a picture and a link on my sidebar ;)
Hugs for now,

First of all, Happy New Year and I'm sorry that you havn't seen me for awhile now.
There is a reason and pretty good one too... In December I packed all of my stuff and in the beginning of January, I moved with my family to Norway - hopefully to have a better life!!!
Now, I'm trying to organize all of my things, in a new home and all I've done with my scrapbooking stuff is to look at my boxes and unpacking all of my cardstock - that's it!!!
My fingers are itching for some scrapbookingtime but unfortunatly I have a problem, I don't have a table that I can use as a scrapbookingtable, so I have a bit of a dilemma as you can see :o/
But I hope I can do something about that soon...
But have yoy guys seen this fantastic sweet stuff AND the blogcandy that Jacque is giving away???
It's just fantastic!!!
