Get off the cross we need the wood

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. ♥


~~ here we go again ~~

Posted by Ania On Thursday, December 20, 2007

Lil quick post.
How come I always get ideas for layouts and stuff while at the hospital? I always end up looking for pens and drawing sketches and writing down notes on concepts. Even did so while at the bus heh. Not all have been as um, nice - I recall sketching a doublepager in the middle of the night in a scrapbook-magazine (Scrapbooks Etc I think - usually read Etc and CK while at the hosp in addition to photomagz :p) and in the morning looking at it and going "eeeehhh riiight :p"

Anyways. Felt a little disappointed about the whole hospitalthing and really felt the urge to put it on paper. Kinda like a diary. An open one. Writing in English feels kinda okay - although it should be like, completely opposite - English exposes it (and myself) to way more people than writing in Norwegian would have feels more alright writing things down in English and I guess it's a good thing that things gets written down nevertheless uh? Hm. Ohwell. I think it's ok to share it. It's ok to feel this way. It's ok to let people know I'm feeling this way. I don't want pity nor consolidation really - I really am fine and there's no reason to feel sorry for me - I just felt like that for a moment and had to get it down - and it felt so much better when I was done. I really think I'll work more on my journaling for 2008. *adds that to my ever.-growing-list of what needs to be done better for my scrapbooking in 2008*

Oh. And after a long period where cardstock was like, limited to journaling only I think I am starting to find scrapping with cardstock cool after all. Besides. Gotta get rid of all the cardstock here uh? I'm kinda only using black, white, brown, cream, (army) emergencies babyblue... have to try get rid of the other colors too and I thought orange-yellow fit the mood :p

Ohwell. Better hit bed. Have to take the bus to the hosp tomorrow. Veeeeery early. Um. Or today :p Should be back home by the evening though! The doc promised! (well..he said *probably* :p)

Oh, and as I know Christmas is a busybusybusy time for most of us - Merry Christmas if you're just dropping by and doesn't plan to return before Christmas! heehe :p

Mhmm. Nytt besøk på sykehuset idag, og enda et besøk til imorgen. Får forhåpentligvis komme hjem igjen til kvelden - satser på det ihvertfall! Sykehus er....ikke morsomme greier :P

Jeje. God jul og sånn :p

    The layout is beautiful and it doesn't matter which language the journaling is. It's for you, your feelings, your expressions!
    Great journaling and those things also need to be scrapped. :)

    En virkelig flott side ania, visste ikke at gulorange kartong kunne brukes jeg!! En rekreerende layout- synes det er fint at den er på engelsk jeg, du er jo litt flerspråklig og bruker engelsken din mye- så da er det jo en del av deg og den du er! Angående den fotoveska- har du kjøpt den her i Norge? Og føler du at du får med deg det du trenger på en grei måte med den? Blir den brukt?
