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 national day & stuff ~~

Yesterday was the national day of Norway. The celebration of the constitution and stuff. And - as our house is among the bigger ones in the family that means we get to house the relatives and stuff. Wohoo. Everybody knew we were in the middle of moving, so they brought food and stuff so we didn't have to do that much. And we had an excuse for stuff not really looking like they're supposed to as we were in the middle of getting settled down. Now. The adventages to get to host the relatives is; food. We get to keep it when it's over. Yay. Got enough cake for another fortnight. The disadventages. Well. We gotta clean the house in advance. And we get to do the dishes & clean the house when it's over. And we get to find crumbs of cake in the bathroom, the office and in the attic. Yay for kids.

Ohwell. Things are at least moving forward here - we're about to wrap up the last things from the old house moving everything out by tomorrow. The cleaning maids are gonna fix the house on tuesday, and the photographer is coming on weds to take pictures so we can get the pictures out & sell the house. I'm making a list over things we need to do and buy for this new house - hopefully we'll be able to start painting the livingroom next week when we're totally done with the old house. I *will* put up more pictures soon, I promise. Just ....everything's still chaos here, not all of mother-in-law's furnitures are gone yet, and we've still got to paint the livingroom & stuff. And I'm SO looking forward to get to scrap again. Hopefully this weekend..? *crossing fingers*

Håper alle har hatt en riktig fin 17. mai!
"Fordelen" med å ha et litt større hus er at man automatisk blir "godkjent" til å ha familie på besøk. Helt greit egentlig - bortsett fra all ryddingen i forkant og etterpå ;) Men - man får beholde kakene og sånt så jeg burde ikke klage - ungene har snopet til seg kake i hele dag (*blush*) og det er fortsatt masse kake igjen :) Rømmegrøt og spekeskinke er det fortsatt en del av og, yay!

Vi begynner å "se lyset" når det gjelder å få ut ting & tang fra gammelhuset - regner med å få ut alt bortsett fra det som skal stå til fotografering/visning iløpet av ikveld og så ta noen turer ut på dynga med resten imorgen. På tirsdag kommer det noen vaskedamer (YAY!) som skal vaske ned huset, og på onsdag kommer leilighetsfotografen. Spennende! Når vi er helt ferdig med gammelhuset er det også på tide å begynne på det nye huset; male tak og vegger i stua og ikke minst shoppe småting - lamper og kurver og div. oppbevaringsgreier - gleder meg sånn!! :) Ser også frem til å kunne få litt overskudd til å begynne å scrappe igjen - sukk :) La meg klokken 21 igår kveld - så sliten er jeg for tiden...men nå blir det snart bedre håper jeg :)

    Så mange flotte 17.mai bilder!
    Høres ut som dere hadde en fin dag, til tross for kakerester og rengjøring i forkant og etterpå. ;)
    Lykke til med siste rest av utflyttingen - gleder meg til å se flere bilder!
    Ha en flott helg! *klem*

    Gratulerer med vel overstått 17. mai. Vi var heldigvis blant de som dro bort med mat og slapp å vaske opp :P

    Flotte bilder fra dagen. Gleder meg til å se de "på papir".

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
