How does it feel to be 28? How have you been celebrating? What was your birthday weather like today, and what did you get? :D
I'm so happy that you have joined our community. It is GOOD to have a correspondent representing Sweden :), and good for suziebeezieland to have such a talented chicky onboard . . . I am in awe of your abilities with both languages and scrapbooking. Dude. Hooray, Lisa O. Hooray! :)
And sweetest Inge made me a package full of goodies and sent it for my birthday. And it arrived just on the day! It made me smile all day!

I made the CJ entry to Inges You-nique CJ! I love that CJ it is fantastic! Here you go Inge!
This one is about getting sweet kisses from my nephew :)
My husband in his cool hat! There is some hidden journaling under the papperned paper. Everything looks crocked but I blame it on the scanner, argh!
My grandfather is from the former Jugoslavia and he has his relatives including his brother still there. My grandfather came to Sweden in 1969 so he has lived here for a long time. I think it is so cool that he chats with his brother over the web-cam! :)

~ a gift cerificate to my local scrapbook store. comes in handy since I am planning to go next weekend...:)
~ ink for my printer (yellow) and GC to buy the rest! Yay!
~ money... ;)
~ and my all time favorite (this is where i said ok you can all entertain yourselfs this weekend and i´ll be in my craft room!) i got Keri Smiths book "Tear up this book"
Oh, my! You may all remember my oh:s and ah:s over the other book "Living out loud!" that i bought just before Christmas. This book is all that good too! It is more a pratical book where you get tons of cool creative ideas to make things. For example:
~ 10 cool things to do with string and paper
~ Fun with gum-wrapper
~ Create a mood-o-meter
~Play wandering bingo
and i can go on and on! Inge, this is a must have book for us! I also love that the book is soft and that it fits in your purse so that you can have it with you, just as the other book. Keri Smith often talks about how you should thing creative all day long and if you can bring her books with you, that must be a good creative thing!
oh, and i think (crossing my fingers) that my mojo might possibly perhaps maybe gotten back on track...i have been so bummed and down for such a long time now that i thought that i might never get that feeling back. But as sure as rain in April it comes back everytime! I have been doing some sketches and jotted down some ideas in my book that i am dying to do. I think that is good for me, to not actually create something for a while and just burp ideas out. It gets me thinking a bit more, do you know what I mean? I have been thinking a bit about Ali and her Azine challenge this week, to write you own creative manifesto. Keri Smith talks about much of what was said in the newsletter this week too. It is good to think. I have not been able to get anything down yet, but it is in there, in my head for now. I have also been thinking about what inspires me and I know I have been talking about that before both here and here. And I always come back to color. i love color! every color that is. That was why I was happy to see that the fabulous Susie had a new link in the Beezieland the other day. Check it out here i love these fabrics they are cool and sassy and sweet and beautiful...well everything! Go wander in fabricland for a while!
And the How much is too much blog have a new challenge up:
7 Patterned Paper
Hm...ok i might do this! Have a great saturday!
Ps. Thanks to Marie that helped me a lot with the banner thing, I am almost there! :)

And since my printer has run out of yellow ink it prints only in black and I love the effect that has on my photos. As previously mentioned I love that photo so I have used it yet again! Down by the water there is a bench where someone has painter M heart E and as acoincidence our inititials are these. We go there often and I think it is so cool that some other M and E has been there too!
The other day I made some Valentine cards for someone at work. they turned out pretty cool. I love to make cards for Valentines! I used so much scraps and that is always good!
I cleaned my craft room and I love all the little finds you can make! I often forget about stuff I buy and/or used a long time ago. Then, when i clean I find them and I can´t wait to use them in my projects. I found these fabric flowers I bought in a thrift shop about a year ago. Hm...I need a new project!
And if you haven´t noticed I have put 2 new things in the right hand bar. It is a list of the creatures :) I love! And then there is a To-do list for me for this month!

Last weekend we helped my father to move and when we were all done we grabbed some lunch at a small diner. They had this huge mirror at the booths...and yes I had my camera with me :) I have it with me at almost all times. You never know when or where that perfect photo op comes up right?! And yes, we are crazy, but we love eachother very much!
