3872160 minutes I have been her mommy (on January 11th atleast!)
My entry to a 2peas contest!
My daughter and husband in the mountains in Mallorca!
I made a few calls as well, but i´ll have to share them later :)
Ok, do you know how long an inch is? I do! 2,54 cm :)
Do you know how many national holidays Iceland has? I do! 21: )
Ok, I´ll stop now! I am just so in love with my new MOLESKINE planner that I bought using a GC yesterday. It is a little black book with all sorts of cool facts too. I love planners and calendars almost as much as I love bags and purses. It is an obsession I tell you! During a year I can easily change planners twice or even 3 times. How many times I change bags and purses? Countless times! I have a ton of different kinds of bags, one for each occasion.
This week I pulled out some fabulous fabric I bought last year. I am really bad at using my sewing machine, but looky what I did! I love the fabric and at least I think that the bag is cool :)
My to-do list for today:
1. Come up with something yummy for dinner.
- maybe perhaps chicken?
2. scrap! :) Makes me happy!
- do a CJ entry
- try to create some layouts for a few magazine calls
- get working on V-day cards
3. walk the dogs and take some photos of what used to be the forest
4. Write a blog entry to blog #2 :)
5. Listen to my MP3 book
6. Do laundry
7. Pea :) and read my daily blogs!
8. Hopefully come back and post some finished projects!
See y´all later!

thanks for the comments on my last post :) It is freaking fab isn´t it?! That feeling of seeing this is undescribeble :) I was last minute shopping before Christmas and just ran into a mag shop by chance and was flipping through crafting magazines and suddenly I just saw this. I almost lost my breath and I am sure I had that stupid looking smile on my lips all the way out of the shop. I just wanted to say to everyone there: I am in here!!! And as my husband said, it isn´t even one of my best layouts. I will be in the next issue as well. How cool is this?! I know; it is way cool!
For those who read scrapbooking magazines this is a swedish version of Scrapbooks Etc. and it is good. I still buy the american version aswell. And the good news keep on coming; my mom got me a subscritption on the magazine! Yay!
We are home sick today. My poor daughter is having one of her caughing periods. *sigh* We were up all night and the night before. Poor thing, she looks so sick. My husband is calling the doctors office, because it usually don´t go on for this long. Maybe she has a bug or something?
Since I am home I am going to prepare for this weekend when I am doing a all night crop at a friends house. Lokking forward to it and are making some layout plans. I never do that oterwise, but now I have my photos printed and I have done sketches and will put everything in page protectors to bring with me. And I am sure I will bring too much stuff :) The hardest thing is restraining myself from going in my craft room and create something right now. I want to save it to the weekend!
Will be back soon! :)

I wanted to tell you all about how happy I am today. I woke up early not feeling good again, and then fell asleep again waking up around 9. Took the dogs out for a little walk and then checked the email. I had 4 new emails today. I love those days, don´t you?! Well, atleast if they are as good as these were. The first one I opened was from Marie and she was telling me all these funny things :) that made me smile (we have something in common!).
The second one I opened was from sweet Inge and she wrote a very encouraging email to me regarding something I have written on the My try to live out loud blog. It made me shiver all over when I read it. It is extraordinary how a small note from someone you haven´t even met in person can transform your mood and how you feel inside. I love that feeling, and her words made me feel very special. Thank you so much, Inge!
The third email I opened this morning was one from my good friend Jeremy. This one made me cry...happy and grateful tears I have to add! :) Love you J.
And the 4th was a email from a CJ friend in Holland called Petra. I have emailed her alittle about a small problem and it has resolved now and she wrote "...now you can breathe again..." and that is so true. Thank you!
And Marie I can happily tell you, Yes I have tried one. I did today...it said smile and that is what I am doing!

Now I see art everywhere. I understand now that art is really in the eye of the beholder. Art can be on a canvas hanging in a museum, true. But for me art can be on a mural, a subway wall, a street, in clothes. Art, to me, is everywhere. You just have to be prepared to see and to look in "strange" places. Take a look out the window while you comute. Look at those graffitis you otherwise may see as a stupid thing to do (don´t get me wrong, in the wrong place and the with the wrong message it is sad) but see it like art, as a artist made it with intention to make the place a little bit nicer, more beautiful...for you.
Unfortunatly mine didn´t start that good :( I woke up January 1st and had a stomach flue! Blah!!! I hate that! I felt so bad Í couldn´t be still, everything in my body aced. I am feeling better today.We went to Gothenburg again on friday the 29th and went to concert. It was good times! And then on saturday I got to go to the LSS there :) Sadly I didn´t find that much stuff, some paper a new pen and a mat pack. Oh, that is ok since I can now say that I am on a scrapbooking budget!
When we came home on sunday I scrapped all night! Yay! I made several pages here are some:
I will be back soon with more!
