Other than that, I must confess that I am a little tired now. LOTS to do at home before Christmas and I am also work-training. It's pretty stressful, but I try to keep it out and just take it as easy as possible. One step at the time, trying not to get too stressed...

Yesterday I started working again! Well, it's actually work-training, but it can lead to work in the long run. It's at my old job and it feels sooooo good to be back! I've really missed my colleagues and the daily chit-chat! To begin with, I will only work 10 hours a week and it will be Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 10-14 (with a little break for lunch in the middle). And later on I will increase the hours and take upon more responsibility etc. And eventually, I might work there for REAL again!
OK, the card above is one I made for a friend who had her birthday earlier this month. I was really happy with the card. The heart was made by using my new coluzzle - that I bought from a sale I bumped into in France! Hope you liked the card as well!

Yes, another card! I'm in a flow right now, LOL! Can you tell that I like this colour-combo? it's my favourite one right now...
This one I made for a friend who turned 40 in July. We were invited to her birthday-party last Saturday. The stamp is from Reprint (I think) and the design is made by my dear friend Maria (pointing over to my friends blogs), isn't it lovely!? I coloured it with ProMarkers. The tags I punched out using my QK Squeeze, and on one of the tags I put "40" and on the other I put "år", which means "years". At first I intended to put Sophie there, but the tags were too small... The paper... oh my gosh, I can't remember where that is from! Sorry!

Now evenings are getting darker again. By 9 PM I have to switch the light on - that has not been necessary for the past couple of months! And right now it feels as if autumn is knocking on the door again, because it has been rainy the past few days, and therefore not that warm...
Above is a Vintage Wedding ATC that I made for my group "LovelyDecos". It's pretty simple, but I think it turned out OK...

So, now that I'm home again I have a little difficulty in getting back into crafting - strange, I would have thought the opposite! It might have to do with the heat though - today we have had a temperature of 32 degrees Celsius! That is way too hot for me! But I did manage to craft a little - like this Picasso-deco that I made for my Swedish yahoo-group SvenskaDecos. It turned out pretty nice, I'm happy with it!

About the wedding-card in my last post - believe it ór not; I forgot it at home on the desk!! So I have snail-mailed it today instead. LOL! That is sooooo me!
Friday, June 13, 2008
Tomorrow we will be attending a wedding - Mats' friend Torbjörn will be marrying his Sophie. I made this card for them. It's more green IRL, and frankly it also looks better IRL! I hope they will like it! The round stamp says "kärlek" which means "love", and the text over and below means "Faith Hope" and "For Ever". I borrowed both the stamps when I was at that craft-meeting in Stockholm a month ago. They came in handy now!
Tuesday, June 3, 2008
Well, I haven't been able to do much crafting, and the decos I have made, I forgot to scan before I sent them, so I show you a deco I made some months ago. The theme was "your childhood idols/Superstars", and I just had to pick ABBA! I simply adored them as a child, wanted to dress like they did and all that. I knew (and still know) their songs by heart, but before I had learnt English the lyrics were a bit funny... LOL!

Anyway, you have to settle with this older deco, that I made for my Swedish deco-group a couple of weeks ago. It's a "Penny Black" deco, but instead of making it very cute with a lot of flowers, I wanted to go with a cooler look, and this is what I came up with. It turned out pretty good, don't you think?!

Well, I made a couple of Rubberstamped Flower decos for a swap in my own Swedish group. This is a rubberstamp from Penny Black that I borrowed from a friend (thanks so much Mia, it's lovely!). I hope you like it - I do!

1) Are you a cardmaker or a scrapper? I do make some cards and I've scrapped about 3 LO's. But mostly I make decos and recently some ATC's!
2) Favourite colour you like to use? No - I like almost every colour. It depends on the card/LO/deco/ATC - what theme there is and what picture I'm going to use...
3) What decorations can't you live without? Prima flowers! I use them everywhere, and bundles of them!
4) What is you best buy? My wonderful Fiskars Papercutter! I don't understand how I could manage without it!
5) Anything you regret that you bought? Hmmm... I have to think... Not that I can think of right now - must have supressed it! LOL!
6) What kind of motifs do you like to scrap/stamp if you get to choose? Well, if I get to stamp I like things that are cute, like Penny Black, but not too cute like the Swedish "hÄnglar" stamps... And about decos, I like artistic ones, where you get to use your creativity and imagination!
7) Is there any craft-paper you like to buy? I have bought a couple of issues of the Swedish Scrapbooking m.m, but since I'm not that into scrapping, it's not what I'm looking for. I'm thinking of buying a subscription of some American craft-paper... Or the British "Cards".
8) Favourite craft-blog? Wow, there are soooo many! Check the bloglist on the side!
9) What/who inspires you? Other blogs, other peoples work, decos, craft-papers...
10) If you got a 1000 SEK (1oo EUR, 143 $, 70 £) to buy craft supplies, what would you buy? Eeehhh... probably a QK Revolution or something like that...
Now I want to tag Annelie (Cat Anne), Samrana (My Arty Budoir) and Mette (Jag och mitt liv)!

Today I've also made an Easter card!
Monday, February 25, 2008
Tomorrow my aunt will turn 60, so I made this card to her and will send it today. Isn't she cute, the Bella-stamp?! The tag at the side says "Helena 60 år" and I tied a nice white ribbon at the back of the card.
Yesterday I hurt my back. I was sitting on a bench at the sports-center, watching Gustav play land-hockey for an hour. When I got up the back just "snapped" - aouch! It hurts! My stepdad (who is a chiropractor) told me it's lumbago... So I'd better keep still as much as possible. *sigh*

I'm a member in a Decosquare group at Yahoo. The idea is similar to ATC's, but you get to decorate on a bigger space - 4x4 inces. I find that easier to decorate than regular ATC's. This is a "Trees in Winter" square. I've stamped and embossed it with white glittery powder. It doesn't show well from the scan, but I'm pretty happy with it!

I've got an award! Thanks so much dear Mette!
"Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness andinspiration and make you feel happy about blogland.Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on.Beware you may get the award several times."
Right now I'm a little stressed out by all the swaps I've fisned up for. I've taken upon far too much - it's so hard to resist when there are such great themes and i'm in too many groups... I will reduce the groups I'm in a little and also reduce the amount of swaps I sign up for. Now I feel lack of both inspiration and imagination because it feels too much of a duty. So I really need to do this!

Happy New Year everybody out there! I wish you the best for this new one!
This deco is a "Choose the theme for the next signer"-deco! I thought it was a fun idea, and I'm quite pleased with the deco itself. It's very symmetric (yeah, I'm big on symmetry, can you tell?) but still a little different with the ribbon and the bow across...
The new year I celebrated at Mats' place. Not that we did anything in particular though - he cooked a delicious meal, we had some wine and watched TV. But that's the kind of New Year's Eve I like! I know I might be a bore, but I'm proud of it! LOL!
When I got home after 2 days, Felix (the youngest cat, 7 months old) was soooooo pissed! I didn't talk to me the whole evening, but then at night he couldn't be close enough... It was like I had been gone for 2 weeks or months, not 2 days! (The neighbours gave the cats food, so they didn't have to starve, and they have their own entrance as well)
