Cocoa challenge and Moonbeam sneak peek

Have been creating some little things this weekend.
I so enjoy my paper craft between peeking in on the computer to cheer on the norwegian skiers and skijumpers in the ski world cup in Oslo.

I created the layout above for this months sketch over at cocoa daisy.

:)And now on to the sneak peek on the super cute NEW collection "moonbeam"

All the images are so wonderful, and I can't wait to show you more on the release day march 1st.
Have a great sunday.

in stitches.... :)

Inspired by my incredibly talented friend, Hanne, I have been sewing a bit lately.
One handbag (I'll show you later ) and this little purse.
Actually I love to sew, but It is way too long since I played with my favorite fabric and sewing machine.
THIS challenge over at Pixie Dust gave me the kick to make this purse.
It will be perfect for little girls on summer vacation.
:) :) The super Cute girl is a digi stamp from Pixie Dust studios, printed on to a transfer sheet and ironed on to the un-bleached cotton fabric before sewing the bag.
the super cute flower fabric and the yellow fabric are both some of my fave fabrics by Cosmo Cricket. :)
NOW we are enjoying the Winter break with lots of time off, having just the best time....
the ski world cup is here ( in Oslo ) and we enjoy it all! :)
Happy weekend!!
OH, and not to forget:
Make sure you go to
to see if you are amongst the winners of the viritual Valentines blog hop

Hi my friends.
Hope you all have had a good week so far.
This week is last week before schools winter break here in Oslo, and we are all looking forward to a wintery week off. :)
I have been inspired by so many things lately.
I found (trough my friend Sue ) this wonderful place:
where you can pin up inspiring pictures.
This place makes me happy :)

I have been inspired by the beautiful Cosmo Cricket papers and a great challenge over at Cocoa daisy, to create these two layouts.
I made these hearts...sort of by accident.... LOL
But LOVE how they turned out with crackle paint and epoxy. :)

Had a mini photo shoot with me and Eirun a few weeks ago.
She is the sweetest girl, and we have so much fun together. :)
I feel so blessed to be her mom.
(and the mom of all my 4 kids, actually.... :) :) )
Have a great weekend.

It is still ice cold, white winter here in Oslo.
And, yes, we still enjoy it :)
The kids love the snow, and enjoy the lighter, longer days in february, playing outdoor in the snow.
the girls created this super cute snowman outside our front door.
He is welcoming everybody that comes to our door.
And tha good thing is, because of the cold days he'll probably have a long and good life, bringing smiles to our cold winter faces :)
To create this layout I have used patterned paper and rubons from Lily Bee, Love their happy colorful design.
Digital stuff from Ali Edwards :)
Thanks for stopping by.
