Ännu en “liten hemlighet” kan avslöjas idag.
Jag har fått den fantastiska chansen att jobba tillsammans med Scraplagret som en av deras nya designers.
Idag är min presentation uppe på deras blogg..
I´ts time to reveal another little secret I known some time now…
I´m so happy and proud. I have been asked to join the Scraplagret DT, as one of their new designers.
It will be so much fun. Today my presentation is up over at their blog.
The other day me and the kids visited a friend, and we had loads of fun… before we went home we took a stroll through the neighborhood. The kids played around, and when my Son found an old concrete pipe, he yelled… mom its PHOTO-TIME!!! (yup I have scrap-damaged kids) the photos of him and his darling sister turned out really well… and I scrapped them right away. This is one of the LO´s I did today. The base of this LO is really simple, I made the pattern using an pilot ink pen, and my Silhouette Cameo to draw this whimsical background, added some dots using a Prima Marketing stencil, and beautiful Tim Holtz Distress ink and distress marker -Pumice Stone.
The flowers are from Prima, and Wild Orchid Crafts. and other than that its a Manila Tag, and some patterned stripes of paper from Carta Bella.
There are a few fun creative things going on behind the scenes… and today I have been scrapping some great papers from Color Conspiracy and some oldies but goodies from Jillibean Soup.
There is rarely any photos of me and my husband together… wonder why? there are tons of pics of our children and about three of me and my husband on the same photo.. and one of those are our wedding portrait. I think I need to get some of my scrappy photographing skilled friends to help me out with a photo-session of the entire family this summer…

I confess,,,,, I am a retard when it comes to mechanical devises… and today I realized that my Silhouette Cameo actually has a sketch feature… well I knew it could sketch, but I hadn´t tried it.. thought it was difficult to get it going.. but it was really easy.. and the result really neat. I used a regular Pilot Ballpoint pen and the special penholder… and got going. and it worked like a charm.
Loved the look of it.
what do you think? cool huh?

Started doing zentangles the other day, and it is so much fun, and relaxing to go wild with patterns and colors.
Today I played around, just got carried away enjoying myself.
One little word can change everything.. a harsh word can give long going consequences, just as positive words can create miracles.
Ali Edwards is having this one year thing called One Little Word.
What do you do with this one little word?
You live with it. You invite it into you life. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. After some thought I have decided to let the word balance be a part of my life during 2014.
This is a word that comes to my mind lately, to find harmony and balance in my life. Not letting negative energy take over, but without negative there will be no positive. So there need to be room for both.
Right now I need to focus on balancing out the negative that has been a huge part of my life this last six months. Loads of negative energy has been poured at me. I need to get a positive vibe again. Let my creativity run wild, make harmony at home, and be a positive person. But it will take loads of work to cleanse the soul from the negative that have taken over, to reprogram my mind to feel happy and relaxed again. But I am determined that I will succeed.
“Balance is nothing you find, it´s something you create.”
Yesterday I created a new LO, using fun materials from Silhouette, Wild Orchid Crafts, LilyBee Design and Studio Calico
I really love the combo of orange, turqouise and black/grey.
It’s been ages since I actually did some sketching. But this weekend I actually sat down, and practiced. I’m really rusty with the sketch pen, but I really enjoy the challenge to get a decent sketch skill again.
This year I’m going todo the OLW class with Ali Edwards, having a word that is what you strive to during the year. After a lot of thinking my word will be balance.
To keep track of my journey I brushed of my old bookbinding skills, and made me anew journal.
My daughter got inspired too, and I teached her to create an easy sketchbook. She loved it!
Materials used on my journal:
LilyBee Designs, Becky Higgins-project life card, Wild orchid crafts-flowers and seam-binding ribbon.
2013 was a year filled with loads of new experiences, both good and negative ones.
Today I’m leaving all of that behind looking forward to an exciting 2014.
I wish all my friends a happy New year, and hoping this will be a wonderful and creative year!
