...ah, the company of good friends...kids playing without any fuss...good food and great conversation...just the right way to spend a saturday night in december :) We had a wonderful time at our friends house and it was hard to leave!
Now it´s tuesday night and the weekend can´t come fast enough!!! I want some time off!!! I start early on friday morning and are taking the ferry into town at 12.30 so thats a good day for me. I am going for that last minute shopping thing (blah). I usually don´t but the budget for this Christmas was hard this year :( Anyway I only have to find something for my husband, and I have been thinking of a book that he had mentioned a while back. I find him the hardest to buy for...anyone else? I can´t stop shopping for my daughter haha... I know it is really not about the gifts, but I just love giving out gifts on all occasions. I love to whatch other people open gifts and be all ah.. wow... because I have found THE perfect gift for them. I really hate wishlists...ok in way they are good because you get a little direction on where to go, but really it is so much more fun to find something that just has someones name all over it, am I right.
I am looking forward to some time off just being with my family and sleeping in/staying up late :) We are going to my MIL and FIL on saturday and meeting up with my family too.
I am happy to say that the magazine I was talking about in previous post is publishing yet another 2 layouts of mine :) happy happy happy :)

I also wanted to show you how those altered chipboard letters I made look in the tree. I really like them up there. And I made some other photo ornaments aswell. Fun stuff!
Now the church. This is the little church that I grew up with in my dads and moms house. When mom told me that I could have it when I moved out I was so happy. It is a music box that plays Silent night (my favorite!). I reminds me of home...

Then I send in a few more layouts to possible publishing to that swedish magazine I have told you about. Keep your fingers crossed! :)
And then I did something I would advise all you scrapbookers to do once in a while...go through your BOS at 2peas. I do that from time to time and I find new inspiration everytime. You know how it is, you see a lo in the gallery and put it in the BOS and you try to take some inspiration from it or lift it at some point, but if you are like me you have like pages and pages of BOS things. I love going back to like page 12 or something and see what I have there and what inspired me then. And you know what? I can see a lo and understand what drew me to it in the first place, but now say a cuple of years down the line, something else catches my eyes on the same lo. Am I making any sense? For example todays latest add to my book of scraps is this layout by Karla Dudley. I like the whole thing here, but especially the small photos and the text.
A favorite (still) from page 20 Marie Cox´ layout is one of the jummiest I have ever seen. I fell in love with it right away. And still I can just sit and look at it... I love the small photos and the calendar feel to it. I lifted this on and mine is the second.

I am working on some new gifts that I made up ideas for in the last minute. My sweet SIL mentioned that she didn´t have any pictures of her and her boyfriend and I have a few, so I am making her a little photoalbum with a few photos of them. This is the cover...I am going to add a title of some sort...maybe their names or simply the word LOVE. I made the album out of cardstock and....um...MY GOD I totally forgot what they are called...it is not pins...ah!!! you know the small pin-like things wich you put in a hole and seperate to things so that they stay there. I am so sorry...but I am seeking help for this!!! Haha...
And my dad mentioned that he hadn´t recieved a picture of my daughter in a few years (a lie!) but I am making him an album too!
