About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.



My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥

~~ Happy Easter & stuff ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, April 06, 2007
Tryin to get my scrappin' mojo back; a simple layout about Adrian & TuvaMy ubbah sketch

My Fiskateers layout - Becca & Adrian being ready for the amusementpark.

Ahh! How very cool! Browsing the net this morning I found out that I've won at the Fiskateers - I mailed in a layout + sketch (you can tell I'm no sketch-maker heh) and waddayaknow, my name was among the lucky ones being drawn out! Cool! Head over here if you wanna do part 2; make your own layout after the sketch one of us 3 winning girls made :)

And. Wanna know something funny? Two days ago. April 4th. That was my 27th year here in Norway. Kinda like my 2nd bday no? Really, I've never thought about that until maybe two years ago..then I started thinking and being aware of this date. I was adopted to Norway when I was 7 months old, and I've always been aware of that fact - ofc - how else do you explain why I look so diff from my fam eh :p Anyways. It was just a natural thing - mommy and daddy wanted a baby so much that they wanted me to come around the world to them - and lo and behold - mommy actually got pregant shortly after so I was to blame for my little sis. So for us it's never been that a big deal - and I haven't been that interested in my past before mom and dad (for a little while I wanted to try learn Korean, and I guess dad still got the tape with the language-lessions, but I lost interest long before they arrived :p). Still am not, but I'm fond of this date and it makes me happy thinking how happy mom and dad must have been on this day. And how lucky I am that *I* was the one to be adopted (they settled for a boy before me - gender didn't matter to them, but that adoption didn't work out and they were offered me instead). Funny how little things makes such a big impact. I came to Norway. Got a wonderful family. I met Simen. I got Adrian and Amalie. Now this is what I call being truly blessed :)

Been trying to get my scrapping mojo back; I forced myself to do this layout of Adrian and Tuva - cousins & playmates. They instantly clicked the last two times they met and kept runnin around yellin & playin around like, hi and low :p Guess they're in the right age for that now :)

Ohwell. Have a nice Easter y'all with lots and lots of candies & yummy food!! :)

Noen ganger lønner det seg å henge på med div. nettutfordringer; idag fant jeg ut at jeg var blant de heldige som ble trukket ut hos Fiskateers skisseutfordring; vi skulle lage en egen skisse og en layout etter skissen vår. Aner ikke hva premien er, men det blir visst en liten overraskelse i posten - kult! :) Runde 2 er igang nå; nå er det deres tur til å lage en LO etter våre skisser...har du tid og lyst så bli gjerne med - det blir trekninger denne runden og gitt :)

Ha en riktig god påske alle sammen - med masse snop og god mat, gode filmer (vi har leid casino royale og babel :) ) og lange, late dager! :)

NBNBNB: I added a new feature this morning; the link-preview thingie. PLease do let me know if it makes the blog load really slow or if it's okay. I like it, actually, I love it -- but if it makes it load slower I'll have to remove it...

    link-preview thingie var veeeldig stilig! Må få meg en blogg, og en sånn thingie- var oversiktlig og litt hi-tec! Siden loadet ikke noe spesiellt sent, litt treg i de to første sek, men jeg tror det er PC'n min som gjorde det. Gratulerer med seieren da, skissen var enkel og flott, og Layouten var fargerik og veldig fin altså!
    Og Gratulerer med din andre bursdag :)

    klem Camilla

    Heisann! Jeg kan kjenne meg igjen i mye av det du skriver om å være adoptert, ja! Men jeg er relativt interessert i koreansk kultur og historie, og har vært der to ganger. Ikke interessert i å finne tilbake til mine biologiske røtter, men liker godt å være der borte. Fantastisk land, og min snuppe på to og et halvt eeelsker maten derfra - og vet at ris heter "bap" og tang heter "kim"! Og mannen kan alfabetet og lese litt - selv har jeg ikke kommet så langt... Men har alltid planer om det, da.

    Det med å markere dagen for når man kom til Norge synes jeg er en fin ting. Som "liten" var det ikke mer enn at jeg fikk livretten min, og at vi snakket litt om dagen. Jeg var forresten også 7 mnd da jeg kom hit. Synes det er fint - men også litt rart - at det ser ut som om adopsjoner fra Korea går mot slutten nå. Så om noen år er det kanskje ikke så mange som kjenner til vår historie, hvis du skjønner.

    Ble visst litt filosofisk her i dag...

    Grattis med seieren, forresten! Og håper du har en flott påske!
