Crafting always makes me feel better, so i did some of that today!
And some layouts. The family played some fresbee and i was behind the camera :)
Then DD posed for me once and was silly the rest of the time, but I LOVE these photos!
I am making a short post today, but I have updated with some new flickr photos. See the sidebar for a link!

And what would a day off be without some crafting! :) I am so loving these photo challenges we have on flickr with the Beezie girls! So, I thought I´d save all my photos in this album.
I also took the one photo I had of my daughter after the accident and journaled alot. There is hidden journaling under the mat.
I also became inspired to finally make an "everyday you do..." kind of layout. It was fun!
I jave to get back to work! I am teaching my first scrapbooking class tomorrow, wish me luck!

my day ended in the emergency room today. My daughter went with a friend and the friends father to the harbour by bike to buy icecream. She has done this trip a hundred times before. I stayed home gardening. You know sometimes you think, i hope she comes home safe and the worst senario plays before your mind, but then you say to yourself that oh, nothing is going to happen.
Well, today it did.
I was back in the garden and I didn´t even understand what was happening when I see a lady carry a child in her arms. It took like 5 seconds to comprahens that it was my child. My daughter had, had an accident with the bike. She had fallen and tumbled a few meters and had cuts all over and a very soar foot. The adrenaline was pumping as she screamed and cried so much. She was in so much pain and the chock made her tremble terrible. We went to hospital at once and they said that she must have had a guardian angel. Her ankle was soar from getting caught in the wheel but not broken. And the cuts where sort of ok, but one had to be stitched up.
I am beat. And I thank God that she had a helmet on. God only knows what had happen if she hadn´t. Please, make your kids wear helmets! And you too... You never know!

Yesterday I scrapped in my clean scraproom. It is nice to create when there is a organization and you see all you stuff. I tend to be a very messy scrapper. This day it was all about the pets for me. I finally made a layout about when Sadie got bitten a few months ago. And the second one is about my cutie cat. I think its the naughty girl in me that wants to use that bird paper in my cat layouts :)

Instructions: I used a paperbag which I cut of so it became one size. I adhered paper on the right side and toar out some journaling paper and stapled it to the paper. A tip to make it more sturdy I used some cardstock on the inside of the bag. I made a little tag and added a button. For the left side I sewed 9 plastic envelopes (where I plan to put tickets and other small things along the way) to cardstock and adhered that to the page. Just so I could devide the envelopes i put stickers as tabs. The front page is selfexplainatory :)
Mary Jo made a comment where she wanted to know how I make the pictures in my 2peas BOS into smaller squares. Here is how. When you are about to print your Power Point presentation there are some options in the print section. In the lower part of the Print window there is a PRINT title and below that it usually says pictures or something like that. Change that to the second option (I have the swedish version so I don´t know what it is called in english). After that you can decide on how many pictures per page you want to be printed. I chose 6. Good Luck!
ps. I officially suck at the photo per hour thing! :(
My friend Inge, made a really cool post on her blog the other day. She talks about taking and making time for herself to play/create everyday. Good for you, Inge! She gives a few book tips aswell. Check it out!
I could easily live here, sleep here…
why does my wardrobe look like this and not like this? (these are NOT my real ones!!!)
Oh, if I had a porch (crossing my fingers!) i´d like to have it look something like this!
And this is really cool art I think.
I am a proud member in Beezieland a place filled with wonderful and spunky ladies. It is a password protected place so I can´t link you, but I was thinking about all the fun stuff we do there. For example the leadlady Suzie (suziebeezie over at 2peas) lurkes places where we can buy cute, cool and beautiful things, she has house beautification projects, different challenges and so on. The newest challenge is a flickr adventure where we (the members) post weekly photo challenges. At this time we have posted 3 times. The first one was “my kitchen sink” then something red in your home that you love, and finally our computer areas. It is lot´s of fun, I think. As we are shattered all over the world this is a fun way of getting to know eachother better. I am putting a link to my gallery in the sidebar!
I am cleaning out “my world” today. Phew! I like it though, you find stuff that you didn´t know you had. Maybe I´ll do a little before and after thing? We´ll see.
I am doing a really fun thing right now, I am making my BOS (over at 2peas) into a Power Point presentation and then I am going to print it so it comes out in those smaller squares. I then am going to put them all in a binder and wow what a load of inspiration it will be! This makes me so happy.
I think I will do the same thing with a few of my layouts and projects and show them as a slideshow at one of my classes I am teaching.
I am also doing the my life in photos, by the hour, every hour thing! Inspired by Susanna!

The next project I saw somewhere at flickr but I have totally forgot whos idea it was, but I love it. I bought some of these sewing frames at the thriftshop and just added some of those cool pieces of fabric I once bought. Voila, art! Of course I am going to change the fabrics as I please. (I showed my husband and said; see thats my thing easy and cheap... He said: They are nice, but are we going to have them all over the house? ) :)
And here comes the layouts! I am happy that I got a good use of that bird paper :)
Ok, have a great day!
Fill a inspirational bulletin board

We have 2 dogs and Chanty (golden) is sertainly my husbands best friend. Chanty is getting old and is tired and has some pain in his legs. My husband is terrified that Chanty is getting so old that we have to let him go. He´s not, he is still happy and enjoying life, but my husband is still afraid. I am happy that I snapped this photo of the 2 of them while they were resting.
And look at my crazy cat!
