December journal

Can you believe we are in the middle of November already. Soon one of my favorite months will come. Can't wait for December! Love love love the month December with all the lights, preparations for Christmas, all the joy, time spent together, warm cozy indoor activities, maybe some skating or skiing, all the secrets, the making, baking, the lovely scent of Christmas in the house, the sparkle in the eyes of the kids, the preparing of gifts to the people we care for ... So many things that bring love and joy and meaning and reasons to be thankful into my life. 
As a part of my Christmas traditions is making of my December album a thing I really love and look forward to. 
This year all my scrapbooking is put away in different places around the house, but I enjoyed the process of digging trough my old paper and stash and find all things Christmas related. :-)
This years album is solely made of things I already had on hand and I enjoy bringing new life to old papers and stash. :-) 
Here are some of the premade pages I have made so far:
Thanks for stopping by.

Strikka luer

Har strikket et par luer i det siste. Veldig enkle og raske å lage. Flotte julegaver kan det også bli. ;-) 
Jeg har brukt Rosendahl garn i 100% ull fra Nille, men du kan bruke hva som helst av liknende garn, f. eks pt3, vamsegarn el.l.  Pinne nr 6 garnforbruk: ett nøste. 
Lua blir veldig tøyelig og passer til en voksen person. 

Legg opp 56 masker på pinne nr 6. 
Strikk vrangbord, en rett en vrang eller 2r 2vr. Fortsett med dette til lua er så lang du ønsker den. 
Fell annenhver maske til det bare er 8 masker igjen. Trekk tråden gjennom de siste 8 maskene og fest godt. 
Lua er ferdig!

Autumn love

I was so inspired by this beautiful season,  the colors, the crisp air, the beauty of the trees .... And then I all of a sudden fell over the most beautiful piece of art by Neil Burley  and all of this lead me to create this little page in my messy journal. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog and enjoy the beautiful autumn. 
Love Gudrun.

I'm thankful

Thank you for stopping by my blog. 
This month I'm the lucky one to have my word up over at the awesome one little word blog. I'm so thankful to be a part of the olw team. So many talented, wonderful, inspiring artists. So please join the journey at olw
This month it's time to be thankful. I'm thankful. Thankful for so many things: art, love, joy, challenges ... 
I created two pages for this word. One"official" for the olw blog and one just because I felt so inspired. 
Pretty simple pages, but I enjoy the simple way of creating right now. I don't have the space, the energy, the time to create in any advanced way even if I wish I had.... But still I'm so thankful I can crate a little in some way with paper, paint, colors....
You are welcome to join in! I would love to see your creations linked up at the olw blog.

Travel journal to London. :-)

My oldest son, Edvin, got a trip to London as a gift for his 18th birthday, and this weekend we set of to London. We are so excited, and look so much forward to the trip. So, I decided, last minute to create a travel journal for the trip that Edvin can keep as a memory. 
I dug trough som old stuff to find a journal I could use, and then I stumbled across this wonderful pre- made travel journal i think is designed by Ali Edwards. I think it must have stayed in my cupboard for about 8 years waitng for the right time. It made me so happy to find it just on the right time. I have decorated the cover with some patterned paper by the Danish company the stuff I used inside is some travel-pieces by Panduro and some paper and stuff (probably) by Ali Edwards designed to fit the journal. 
Now we are ready to go to London, ready to journal and put in pictures. Can't wait. :-)

Thanks for stopping by. Love Gudrun.
