New Years Eve 2011

Hi - I'm not a blogger - even though I have blog!  A Scrapbook blog! A Genealogy blog! 
I ended my period in politics in September - after 8 years in the Executive committee of Stange County as well as the County Board!  And started a study at HiHm...shame on me! 

I packed this glas with gladpack - packed the gladpackglass with a lace - and smeared the lacegladpackglass with plaster - let it stayed to dry for a day - then had some really hot water intop the glass or some seconds - an then the gladpack slipped from the glas!

I placed a tealight in the lacebin...

...lit it and..

Wishes you all a Happy New Year!
...do not forget to enjoy...

The Last Sunday In My Summervacation

My Vacation is over - it ends like it started - with rain.  Norway is pretty green now - I usually have red tomatoes from my garden this late in August - but not this year - the Sun has not been here.  Last Thuesday I took a class in making cupcakes - Manuela fron Passion4Baking had classes in Hamar - and I couldn't resist!

Anyway - yesterday it was so warm outside that we could make a BBQ - and my son Nichlasen and my brother made dessert...

...I think they enjoyed it!

My mother made the salad and I took pictures...I was a great evening.

And the Tower of Cup Cakes...cakestand bought in Sacramento!

...do not forget to enjoy life or cupcakes or both...

25th July 2011

Hello to you all - it's still unbeliveable what's happened to Norway.
It's been some horrible days - so many young life has gone away - so many families has been destroyed - because of one man and his thinking.
Here's a link to the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Here is a link I found on Solorlagets facebook site Paradise Shattered

My son, Jan-Nichlas, works in Oslo - just nearby where the big bomb exploded and destroyed the Norwegian Government Office Building. I'll talked to him just minutes after it happened - he is now home - safe and sound.

It's so unbelievable - so tragic - we are a little nation - a little country - not 5 million people - we respect each other - we have a wonderful democracy and openness- we are proud to be Norwegian.

We'll continue to fight for our fundamental values like freedom and democracy.
And it's vacationtime...whatever that is! 

Trying to read the paper...with candle in an old glassjar! called Norgesglass!

But it's cold at Stangelandet...about 60 / 70 Farenheit...no Summertime at all!

This is Varg...my Svedish Lappdog.

Thank you for reading my blog...and do not forget to ENJOY...even when the world are kind of black! right now.

...the back of the book...

...it's kind of pink...

...thank you for looking at my blog - do not forget to enjoy...

A Girly Confirmation Card

Finally, I have been scrapping again!  A girly and pink Confirmatin card.  This is how I usually start with a card...

...I always use my edgescraper...

...and so it goes with my sponge and ink...

....I love embossing...

...always Glimmer Mist on my beige flowers...

...simplicity inside the card with a stamp from Stempelglede...

...my own stamp made by Scrapmagasinet on the last page...

...from the right side...

...this is how it turned out after my edging and shrink plastic and inking and embossing...

Thank you for looking at my blog...and do not forget to enjoy the life with scrapping...

Last Monday in April

Hello to you all that drops by my blog!  I really appreciate that - seeing all the countries that has been a trip to Norway - looking at my blog - Thank you!

Sitting here with my freshly brewed cup of coffee -
...here's to you and here's to 40 years of conversations unfolding, stories being shared and ideas being hatched - all over a cup of coffe... from Starbucks Tribute Blend 40 years togheter - Congratulation!

- and a freshly baked cupcake
...I found this blog - Passion 4 Baking - and I just had to try to make some cupcakes - I did not have the absolute ingredients  - so I used maple syrup instead of corn syrup and cane sugar insted of sugar - Delicious!

...have a nice day - and enjoy...it's fantastic!
