Today marks the first day of the Fall-vacation (Isn’t annoying that the national newspapers&radio all claim “fall vacation’s long over” (thinking people in Oslo) when it’s actually just started here? As if those who doesn’t live in the capital doesn’t count :p Oh wait. We don’t :p
Nevertheless. I didn’t have any lectures at the Univ for today, so when mother-in-law called and asked if we wanted to go for a little walk w/her and the kids’ cousins we jumped at the chance :)
(yes Eli, that’s in your neighbourhood :p)
I decided to bring the camera along – it’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to shoot the kids like this (although it’s a great thing for my limited storagespace, it’s horrible to see how few piccies of the kids I actually have shot the last year compared to usual…although I guess I kind of did overshoot them a lot before, hm, I dunno?). I sure didn’t regret the decision – love the pictures I got today!
Amalie and her grandma…the latter carrying Amalie’s vest :p Took a quick break and the boys thought it would be funny to just point at the sky. Umkay – fine w/me – it’s an opportunity to get a fun shot so I ushered Amalie to join the guys :p
And oh, Amalie’s got her first loose tooth! She started crying because she thought it meant she had to pay the dentist a visit – but Adrian calmed her down by confirming she didn’t have to go to the dentist, that the loose tooth meant she’s now a big girl and more important, by reminding her that that tooth meant she’d soon earn some money :p
Thanks for your feedback on the last post – I see I need to rearrange how I think of the term “cardmaker”. I think both Lizzie and Pattyo put it especially well:
It doesn't matter how you choose to make cards; the point is that you take the trouble to create something special and hand-made, just for someone you care about. That's what Cardmakers - and Scrapbookers - do!
I think you can officially call yourself a cardmaker, too! I just think cards most of the time are mini scrapbook pages.
It is true – the point being taking the trouble to create something special and hand-made (although I would think taking the time to actually hunt for the special card would count too, for those who buy cards), and that cards are really just mini scrapbook pages – maybe even easier, not really having to think of piccies and title and journaling…just…embellish the page/card.
So. That’s it. Guess I’m a cardmaker aswell. Haa! :D
Back soon w/more scrappy stuff, just felt inspired to share these fresh outta the oven-piccies :)
