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. ♥

~~ Dear Santa ~~

Posted by Ania On Wednesday, September 29, 2010

This year, I’ve been an extra, extra good girl. Honest. I’ve been trying at least, and that’s what counts?

So please, here’s my wishlist – now promise you’ll take a good and long look at my very short list and uh, eh, do your best? That would rock my world!

  • Lensbaby Composer with Tilt Transformer (this one allows you to attach Nikon lenses to it!)
  • Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VRII (I know, I know. Expensiiiive. But oh, so needed. Especially when you have an FX body methinks)
  • Nikon 105mm f/2.8 VR II Micro  (I so so so need a macro-lens. I wanna do cool closeups too!)

(Sigh. It’s ok to hope, no? Personally I think the lensbaby should be within reach in not too long, but it’s the two other, esp the 70-200 that I so so so need the most….sigh) Just needed to get this outta my system. Again :p

IMG_0932 I don’t think I’ve shared this picture before. It’s taken earlier this summer, out at Herdla. These kiters love to kite out there, and I found it amusing that the local cows were their spectators. :p The paper ran a few pages on these kiters based on my photos earlier this month.

sketchcard

I’m so sorry, this sketch totally slipped my mind :/ Crate Paper has this sketch-thingie going on every month, and this month I joined in. It’s closed and the winner’s chosen already, but uh, yeah. Join the next sketch? :p However, if you have a 70% Fall-inspired Crate-layout, don’t hesitate to send it in to Crate Paper for a chance to be spotlighted on the blog and win a full Crate-collection of your own choice :) sketchcardcu1

My bday-card is created w/paper and chipboard from School Spirit, letters and green paperflower (seen at the bottom corner here) from Fancy Pants Designs and the bday-tag is from Elle’s Studio.  sketchcardcu2Love this technique – add paint to the edges like this.

envelope_front

Last weekend a former colleague invited us ex co-workers over for an evening at her new home. Couldn’t leave home without a hostess-gift now, could I? :p So – rummaged through my Fancy Pants-stash and whipped up this.

envelope_backPaper from the Frosted-collection, epoxy-brads from both new and old collections.

envelope_cu1 The gift was a pair of lovely magnets from Carambatack Design (Epla-store / Etsy-store). I also ordered a print from there, and can’t wait to get it framed in. So, I basically just took a sheet of matching paper & wrapped it around the gift to create this envelope.

envelope_cu2   The notes-tag is from Elle’s Studio, the buttons, chipboard & papers from older FP-collection. The tape from Pink Paislee, and the orange circles are transparency from Hambly Screenprints.

Speaking of Fancy Pants – join their layout-challenge (just create a layout w/FP-stuff on it) and post it to their Facebook wall before October 1st for a chance to be one of five winners to win a prize package :) More info can be found here, and it’s open for both US and Internationals. Go, go! :)

Så herlig LO! Høye hæler er ikke praktiske, du har rett i det, men å, så flott man føler seg i dem! :) Ha en flott helg!

Jaaaaaa :) Denne helgen skal jeg til Stavanger, og jeg tror nok jeg går for kjedelige, trauste joggesko hele helga. *sukk*

Ja vi begynte vel å lure litt på deg - på tur på Herdla i høye hæler; ingen andre enn du som kan finne på noe sånt *fnis* - og trenger jeg å minne deg på turen rundt i Stavanger sentrum på brosteinen? :P Men ja; høye hæler er stilig og du "bærer" dem med verdighet og kler det absolutt. Jeg har vært for voksen og kjedelig lenge men det har vel mest med å gjøre at jeg ikke klarer å gå på sånne hæler og ikke det at jeg ikke syns det er flott ;):) Digger neglelakken!!!! Me borrow i Stavanger - yes?? :) :)
KLEM

*hosthark* Herdla + stillettos = kule bilder ;) Jadda. Iår skal jeg være kjedelig og fornuftig. Sådetså. Med mindre vi stikker innom spennende skobutikker i Stavanger…?? =) Klart jeg tar med (et lite utvalg) neglelakk =)

    Jeg digger Carambatacks arbeider. Har kjøpt et bilde av henne som står på benken. Det venter på å komme i ramme på veggen i gangen.... må bare tapetsere gangen først *fnis*

    Flott kort og tøft bilde!
    -og beundrer at du spankulerer rundt på høye sko så lett som ingenting. Lekkert!!
    Ønsker deg god tur til Stavanger :)
    *klem*
