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… ~~

New year, new possibilities…or something like that.

Making resolutions for the new year seem popular. Mine’s quite humble; try to be wiser, grow a brain and not be so darn sleepy all the freakin’ time…
(sure, I could put on a straight face and say I’d intend to work out more, like 89% of like, normal people seem to do, but hey, I know that’d be like, snowball’s chance in Hell..)


For my New Year dress I tried to create my own accessory – made with Prima stuff (cuff from Ruby Violet, flowers & baubles from the CHA-S stuff). Hard to get the colors right, the two below ones are more correct in color than the above, which shows my dress as well..ahwell..)


After figuring out what I wanted where, this was surprisingly easy. Not sure what adhesive is best for this kind of activity, I used my Glue Arts hot glue, which seem to work swell.


I tried to chose different materials and colors that complemented my dress – feathers, baubles, satin-fabric and felt.

Sure, the result felt a bit American (like, corsages for prom), but still it looked pretty enough :) )

Had a quiet and nice NY eve – with tapas on the menu and a bunch of sugar-high kids around the house.


It’s useless to try instruct five sugar-high kids aged 6 to 11 to try sign 2012. *sigh*

They rocked the circles, though! :p


They (ok, some of them!) managed to do the heart as well!_DSC7083

The older kids had to try as well :)

Tried to do some firework-shots but the view from the terrace combined with the weather sucked this year :/

Nevertheless…Happy New Year folks, & thanks much for the sweet comments on the last few posts :)

    Rålekker nyttårspynt!
    Og riktig godt nytt år! Håper 2012 blir et supert år for deg og dine!

    Ingen store forsett her heller, men jeg skal (SKAL!) scrappe mer! Skal ikke så mye til å toppe fjoråret heldigvis. ;) Jeg blir alltid så inspirert her inne hos deg, så jeg må jo bare titte innom oftere!

    Stor klem

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
