BRITs 2011 - Adele performing "Someone Like You"

Goosebumps!!!! I haven't stopped listening to this song since I saw it on BRITs 2011 (on TV but I wish I had been there :-))

All kinds of stuff

We have been having some strange days here latley. Hubby home sick for 2 days (he's never sick) and then home for another 2 days for Sunneva's school vactaion. Silja keeping me up most nights so I'm pretty tired and then there is Sunneva full of energy.

Yesterday this pic was taken of us for my "4 people 12 times project". Not the best pic but what can you do or say :-)

I haven't done much of scrapping and my scrapspace is a MESS. I so need to spend some time cleaning it. It's just so tempting to scrap when I have time but now I need to clean it !

I did a lo the other day using the latest pencil lines sketch. I was so unhappy with how it turned out that I was not going to post it but now while I'm writing this I'm thinking why not. This blog is kinda like my scrapdiary and why not show the work I'm not happy with also. I think I took the sketch way to much literal.

Then yesterday I did a lo and I'm happy how that one turned out.

4 People 12 times

So I forgot to post our January 4 People 12 times picture. What's up with that!

This family photo was taken by Sóley in January. What's so wrong with this picture is the fact that Silja is sleeping :-)
I haven't taken the Febuary photo yet. I still have 9 days to do it.

Tomorrow I'm starting the "From the Couch to 5 km" running program. I need to focus on getting myself into shape. My goal is 2 kg per month. Let's just say that I'll have to do that for many months to reach my final goal.

I use google reader to follow all the blogs I read. I follow 192 blogs and most of them are about scrapbooking. One of the blogs I read is Ania's "Little Corner of Ania". One thing she does that I totally love is to write a semi diary on her blog. I can't count the times I have tried to write a diary. I never stay with it for reasons I don't know. So I'm going to copy her idea and when I blog I'm going to do "my diary list" just for me.

Listening: to the sleeping sheep
Eating: Nothing
Drinking: Nothing
Wearing: A nursing top and pyjamas
Feeling: Tired but hoping to get maybe an half an hour (or more is Silja sleeps soundly) to to the Pencil lines sketch for this week
Weather: Still and mild
Wanting: More sleep and time
Need: More sleep and discipline
Thinking: About how much I want to be able to scrap tonight
Enjoying: The Silence (both girls are a sleep and DH is out with his friends)
Wondering: How many minutes I have until Silja wakes up
Planning: Our 8 year weeding anniversary next Tuesday

Getting to know each other

As you can imagine I'm taking alot of pics of Sunneva and Silja together. This 2-pager has 4 pics of them together the first days after Silja was born or from Nov 3 (her birthday) to Nov 29. The journaling is about how Sunneva is adjusting to this big change in our lives.

I saw this Dear Lizzy paper used in this way in the latest issue of Scrapbook Trends mag on a LO created by Sarah de Guzmen and I thought it was brilliant it's such a cool paper.

Title: Getting to know each other
Supplies: American Crafts, Crate paper, Hambly, Prima, Page frames, Jenni Bowlin and EK success.

A simple LO

I'm trying to scrap lo's using pics taken the first days and weeks of Silja's life. This is a simple LO about our very short stay at the hospital after Silja was born.

Title: In the hospital
Supplies: Pebbles papers, Bazzill, Jenni Bowlin, Teresa Collins, Tim Holtz, EK success etc. Here I used some of my "old" supplies and I also uese 3 stamps and that must be a record for me. I wanted to "dress up" the journaling spots without creating alot of "mess". This is me stepping outside my comfort room :-)

My little shoebox

I'm in love with MLS products. They are so much fun and I just can't help but smile when I browse through their products.
These pics are from last Summer and Sunneva is enjoying the Summer rain. The title is taken from an icelandic song and translates to something like: I like the rain or I think the rain is good.
Supplies: MLS, Bazzill, Making memories and EK success.

It's snowing

We finally got some snow here and I love taking snow photos so I used the oppertunity and went out with the camera. I even took some pics of Silja "in" the snow but on this LO I used pics of Sunneva. Silja's first snow lo will be created later.
I used some Bo bunny papers I got from secret santa last christmas. I love this paperline. It's totally gorgeous. I used a sketch from Pencil Lines and the fan fold flowers I made after seeing this tutirol online. These flowers are so simple and really gorgeous !
Title: Snowing
Supplies: Bazzill, Bo Bunny, Maya Road, Making memories, MME, Basis grey, American crafts, EK success, Martha Stewart and Prima.

Project 12 January

Whoo hooo my first 2-pager for Project 12 is done ! I really like how it turned out, clean and simple. I used the sketch and it was fantastic to work with. I love this project and I'm so glad I'm finally doing this.

Each month I'm going to end the journaling with few words that sums up how the month was for us. Also this month I used a color combo that I feel describes the month very well for me. Grey = tired, pink= taking care of my two beautiful girls and blue = soft weather and spending alot of time home (inside). Don't ask why but these colors mind me of these things right now.

Last part of the journaling (the words): breastfeeding, crying (Silja), staying home alot (me), work (DH), school and hobbies (Sunneva), my mom and dad (helping out) and soft weather.

Supplies: Bazzill, Basic grey, Echo Park, Webesters, American Crafts, Martha Stewart, Stamping Up and EK success.

On the pics you can see my mom, my dad, Sunneva and Silja (and a little bit of me).

Also this means I have done 2 LO's so only 48 more to go :-)

Too much spending ?

Lately I have been spending too much money on scrapsupplies. Normally that would be ok (or at least I tell myself that) but now I'm on maternity leave and have to think more about what I spend my money.
Today I ordered two punches from Two peas that I told myself I had to have and I'm waiting for an order from HSS. So as you can see this shopping sickness has hit my hard :-)
When I saw this on Hanna's blog I knew this was just the thing for me. I have way too many paper sheets, embellies etc and I need to use up my stash before I buy more. Phewww this will be hard since I'm longing for some of the new Create Paper, Maya Road, MLS etc.
I have also put into a wooden winebox embellies I have had for some time now and I have challenged myself to use every item in the box before August 31.
So how many creations should I aim for ??? 20, 30, 50 or 70. Let's see last month I created 12 LO's and 4 cards and it was a hard month because Silja's colic was bad so did not have much time to scrap. I should be able to create 15 LO's and 4 cards per month (at least...right !) So my challenge is to create 50 LO's and 12 cards and not buy any new supplies until I reach that goal.
How does that sound ? For every LO I do I'll put 100 ISK in a jar and for every card I create I'll put 50 ISK in the jar. When I reach my target I can use that money to buy some of the new CHA stuff.
I'm starting this challenge today ! Hopefully I will reach my goal number before May 1.
