April 17th, 2012 1 comment

Well, who doesn’t enjoy going to a place, where you can get ALL the awesome, pretty, blingy, cute, artsy, fabby, chic supplies for the cards, LO’s and other craft projects :biggrin:  Well, atleast I do :w00t: I went on saturday together with my mom, so she could handle the baby carriage, when I had to look at goodies :smile:  And I did that a lot. Haven’t been to the fair for 2 years, as last year I was very sick during the pregnancy and the year before, they held it on my wedding day :wassat: But this year I managed to go again. I bought a bit of new goodies, and I would like to share them with you. As always, I now just need the time for using them :happy:  But that will happen eventually….

Some new small paper pads :O)

A few new magazines. Just love looking at the amazing cards and projects made by very talented ladies.

A SMASH book. My new plan.. Will try make an effort in making one this year :biggrin:

Fizzy Moon stamps :biggrin:

Nice embellies. Esp I :heart: the cute buttons.

More of the embellies. Brads, buttons, stickers,tags, crystals and half pearls :smile:

A “few” rolls of washi tape….

Before my visit to the fair, I’ve also done a bit of online shopping lately :w00t:

Some new Magnolias :happy:

Tatty Teddy + Wild Rose Studio Paperpads

Lily Of The Valley Stamps :smile:

DCWV Paper pads 30×30

Wild Rose Studio Stamps :biggrin:  Aren’t Bella the elephant just the cutest ever ??

Well, that’s it!!!!!!! Maybe I should try behave myself, and not buy anymore new stash this year.. Is that possible ???

Hmm, I think not !!!!! :biggrin:

Helloooooo again !!!!!! I’m back :O)

Helloooo to my readers, if I stll have any left :sad:

Finally I’m having a little time to update on my blog. I have been missing it soooo very much, but have a good reason for it :biggrin:

On November 8th 2011 I gave birth to our baby daughter Pinja by c-section :w00t:

During my pregnancy I’ve been really ill, which some of you might already know. And in the last trimester, I actually got hit by some kind of stupid virus, which can hurt the unborn baby a lot, if you get in early in pregnancy…. Lucky for us, I got it late, but still there were a huge risk that she might would be blind, deaf or even retarded :sad:  So we’ve had to take her to many tests, and hearing experts, and so far, she seems to have NO PROBLEMS AT ALL :w00t: It’s been really tiring worrying about all these things every day, and I haven’t been in the mood for any blogging at all, though I’ve been reading and visiting most of my fave blogs :happy:

Our precious little girl is now 4 months old, and I can’t believe how fast time flies, when you have 2 small critters to take care of :happy: Big brother Elliott is very proud of her, and he’s such a sweetheart.

I will add some pics tomorrow, as my DH has the pics on his com, and he’s not home for a few days, but I hope he can mail me the pics :smile:

Here’s just a small pic I have on my own com.

Please don’t take too close a look at me. Not looking my best here :wassat:

I can’t wait to start making more cards, as I’ve been doing a little bit of shopping during my break. Especially I can’t wait to try out my new Wild Rose studio stamps with Bella – the cutest elephant, and also some new Magnolias and papers.

Hugs

PS : I HAVE A NEW FOLLOWER WIDGET, SO PLEASE ADD YOURSELF TO MY LIST, SO I CAN COME VISIT YOU SOON. I WILL ALSO HAVE A SMALL CANDY SOON, SO STAY TUNED :biggrin:

quick update on my health situation….

October 12th, 2011 4 comments

Hi Ladies,

Just a small update on my health situation….. Last week I went AGAIN to the hospital for a few days. My bloodtests are showing some problems, but they can’t quite seem to figure out what’s wrong… For one thing they think I’ve got  some kind of pneunomia, but that doesn’t explain rest of my bloodtests…. A bit annoying, thought the Baby should be okay. The scanned me, and made some test on my belly. And so far she’s doing well :biggrin:

I have now got the date for my c-section, but I will not tell it yet, as it might get changed, if my tests keep raising.. Tomorrow I’ll go for another check-up at the hospital, and I’m curious to hear what they have to say….

Please keep me and my family in your prayers and thoughs. Right now it feels like we could use them…….

To SARAH my candy winner…. I have got your email, and I will try get the candy out for you soon…..

We’re also super busy making our ned bedroom, which takes A LOT OF TIME, as I can’t do too much work in a row, before getting tired and heartbeat. But I hope we’ll manage to be ready some time next week….

Hugs to you all

A quick update on me !!

September 28th, 2011 3 comments

Just wanted to make a quick update on me and my health…

Yesterday I had to visit the hospital for some hours. BORING !!! During the night I had so much chest pain, which scared me a bit, so I called my doc in the morning, and she sent me to the hospital, just to be sure it wasn’t anything seriuos..

Well, I have a high pulse due to the pregnancy, and apparently that was the reason for the pain.. The were talking about, I might have got the metabolism problems again, but all my blood tests were fine.. So now I just have to live with the high pulse for the last weeks of pregnancy.

So that also means that making the bedroom/office will take a bit longer than planned.. We have packed down half of the room, but need to make space in the basement too, before moving most of the stuff downstairs. So we’re busy cleaning up/throwing stuff out there too..

I just hope we’ll manage to get it ready before the baby arrives….

REMEMBER TO SIGN UP FOR MY CANDY. JUST A FEW DAYS LEFT TO ENTER…..

Taking a small break with crafting !!!

September 10th, 2011 3 comments

Hi Ladies. I will be taking a small break with crafting. We’ll be trying to make our office into a bedroom with a desk area before the baby is arriving. So need to pack all our stuff in boxes, and then empty the room, before I can start painting the ceiling and walls. My plan is so get it done VERY soon. I have started packing down all the goodies, and we’ve been looking at wall papers, but still haven’t found the one we want.. But with a 7 month big belly, it’ll maybe take a while to get it all done… Luckily painting is my job, so when I start, I’m pretty fast getting it all done… I can’t wait to have our room ready, and I’ll show you pics when it’s done… I will still be active in the blogging world, but you won’t see any new cards from me in a while… I hope you’ll still pop in once awhile, as I really love your visits.

Hugs

Hoot Hoot, lots of challenges :o)

Last evening I made this card, but couldn’t take any pics cause it was raining and very dark outside. But now I can show it. This is one card I’m REALLY happy and satisfied with. That doesn’t happen very often, so please bare with me all the pics :wink:

I used the fab colour challenge over at A Gem Of Challenge. Just love these colours so much. I’ve used papers from Wil Rose Studio – in love with Japan. Perfect for this challenge. The image is Love Hoot, and the sentiment is a birthday stamp, both from Pink Gem Designs. Added some matching flowers, a little heart charm, some twine and half pearls :smile:  I think this turned out just the way I wanted it.

In the weekend I finished making this card. I actually started on it for a challenge, but then forgot it, and when it was finished, I realized that the sketch challenge was ended :happy: Ever tried that ??? Silly me..  Well anyway, I want to show you my card, and I’ll surf the net, to see if there’s any challenges my card could fit into..

These are not  the colours I normally play with, but I thought I would give it a go, since I bought this paperpad a long time ago…… The papers are from Cosmo Cricket – circa 1934. Used a MS border punch, some half pearls and flowers from stash. The image is Odette from TGF roll call set.. And I guess the sentiment is from Popcorn the bear, but I’m not totally sure.
