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. ♥


~~ Earning some money ~~

Posted by Ania On Saturday, July 07, 2012


So. I’m a firm believer that the kids need to earn their own money. By doing chores. Ok, I might not be that strict like, every day, but when there’s stuff that needs to be done & we could use some extra hands then yes. Oh, add an upcoming vacation to the mix and voila – want some pocket money? Earn it yourself! (and when they’re like, 14 or so? Am totally gonna make them get an extra job/summer job if they want to have some extra cash between their hands!)


Nevertheless…we added cobblestone to the backyard/garage…unfortunately I don’t have any photos of the beginning cause…I was like…busy working :p The truck wasn’t able to go all the way to our house w/the cobblestone, which meant we had to carry 4-5 bricks at a time back and forth…_DSC3423 these pictures we’re almost done for now…if you can’t tell by the way little miss perky is behaving…(she also changed her dirty working clothes so she could pose for the pictures :p)


She loves show and tell :p


…and to pose…(is it just me or are these pictures pretty peachy in color? Hmmmm..)


This dude has gotten a hair cut since this picture by the way.


Yep..definitely loves to pose for the camera this one..and she loved to help out by the way – eagerly counting her money for every brick she carried…they got 1 NOK per brick….she managed to earn 200 (the last few bricks magically doubled and tripled in value so that she could hit the magical number 200…which her brother had broken a while ago :p)

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
