Working like a dog ... :)

Hi my friends.
Finally I'm in for just one second to say Hi! :)
Guess you kinda wonder why I'm not around here on my blog these days.
Well to be honest ... days are really, really busy.
Great but busy!
:) As you can see I'm getting ready for my Three upcoming classes this week.
One class in Moss at Anitas Hobby tomorrow, One in Drøbak, at Annes Keramikk friday and one in Ski, at Minnehjørnet saturday.
Hope to see some of the local girls there! :) :)
Here is one little project we'll make at the Cristmas inspirational classes.
We'll make 5 little projects in the class - so this will be SO much fun.
I really love Christmas, and creating cards and giftbags and other things really makes me happy. :)

I have been thinking about having a
christmas inspirational online class
( in english ) this year.
It will probably be from nov. 15th to dec 15th.
I'm planning on sharing one project every day monday to friday.
I have made some printables, some fun templates and cute Cristmas ideas to share.
More info on this later this week, or early next week.
Please let me know if you are intrested.
This will be a "no kit" you will just recieve the axcess to the class-blog.
The price for one full month of class, printables, ideas and so on will be 300,- NOK
Hope to see you there! :)

first snow

This morning we woke up to the first snow here in Oslo.
I always feel a little bit sad to say goodbye to the fall ... even if I am happy to welcome the white season as well.
The thin layer of crisp, white snow gave the brown, yellow and orange leaves even more texture and color.

I had some work to do in Oslo city today, and Iver joined me and helped me carrying the packages of paper. I'm really so blessed to have kind, helpful kids, that really wants to help their mom when needed. :)
Iver and I had a good time together as well. Doing some shopping and had a little photoshoot.
I have really found new joy in playing with my camera and my photoshop lately, Thanks to the karen Russell class and THIS community I recently bumped in to.
Clickin moms is a super inspiring place for all girls in love with photography. :)

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.

It's all good

Today I'm all smiles. Hubby are back home from USA, and sick computer was fixed in a second. :)
What a blessing to be married to a engeneer. I think Computers love him ... :)
Luckily it was all saved in my backup, so nothing was lost.

If you sent me an e-mail during the weekend it might have got lost.
Or if you have tried to e-mail me and not got an answer yet ... please be patient ... I have about 800 unread e-mails to go trough after this computer breakdown......

This weekend I attended the Large Crop at Drømtorp, Ski, meeting my scrapbooking friends, having a class ,chatting, laughing, creating ...
It was all good!

I recently got my box of goodies ( the october kit and add-ons ) from Cocoa Daisy. It was perfect to bring to the crop.
I talked too much, so I never got to create more than this " du & jeg " ( you and me ) layout.
These pictures of Eirik and me in Odessa, Ukraine earlier this year, are some of my favorites.

This layout is created with a piece of patterned paper from my new Cosmo Cricket favorite line " circa 1934", and some bits and pieces I got in my goodiebag at the Cocoa Daisy event in Greece.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day.

A rainy day in Oslo

It has been a rainy, grey day in Oslo today.
But wrapped in the colors of fall it is still beautiful.
The grey weather and the rain seems to give even more intensity to the red, orange and yellow leaves.
As the three smaller kids are away Edvin and I enjoyed a day on our own in the city of Oslo. Buying him a new winter jacket, wich he needed. Had a coffee at the jazz café.
Edvin covinced me he really needed a Louis Armstrong CD, recorded in 1954 as well.
( Strange - a 14 yo love music from the fifties...)
Kind of was thrilled my big boy loves jazz so much.
His trumpet ( and the piano ) never stays still...
Had fun playing with the camera. I really got a lot of inspiration after attending Karen Russells class in Greece. I have wanted to take tons of photos, capturing little things... textures, ever since I came home. Thank you Karen, you gave me SO much inspiration trough your class.On these pictures I have played with some Texture / overlays by Ninian Lif as well .

I had another surprise waiting at my doorstep the other day.
It was a great honor to be featured in this french magazine, Histoires de pages, along with Linn and Renee.
