hi there!
Have you all seen the new *Love Elsie* line? It is soooo great! I love it and really have to have it all! Luckily the lines will be available in stores in April, and that's exactly when my birthday is!!! I have been saving up some money already so I was a bit prepared but I didn't expect so many fun stuff!
I also watched at other brands ofcourse and there is some good stuff out there! Actually way too much! I really want the new clear stamps of Maya Road, Fancy Pants papers, Basic Grey, too much to mention.

I also have been working on a cute project I can't say much about just yet but soon I will!! It is just so sweet!
I've been doing some scrapping with old pictures and papers as I wanted to clean up my scraproom and it worked out quite well actually. I did a lot of 8x8 lo's lately and still have some stuff to do.

I also scanned a lot of photo's that I want to have printed and have 2 other great ideas for mini albums!!! Can't wait to share it!
What have you been doing lately?

Busy with some fun new stuff!!!

Hey girls,
How's life? I have been busy the last few days with all kinds of fun stuff! Ofcourse checking Elsie's Blog every day as I can't wait to see her new line with KI memories. I guess I will have to be patient just a few more days (untill saturday I think and really hope!!!). She also asked everyone about cool new music and I have been looking up those names in iTunes from Apple that goes with the iPod! Sooooo cool!!! I downloaded an album of Stephen Speaks and it is incredibly great! Listening to it right now. I discovered a whole lot more fantastic music, some strange, some way toooo loud for me but I am enjoying it a lot. Never thought I would enjoy it that much!
I also have been writing a lot again, true soulsearching and it's hard and confronting but it's worth every dime of it! I have discovered soooo much! It's nice to get to know me!

And ofcourse I have been doing some scrapbooking. Just a few 8x8" lo's. I am so looking forward to all the great new paperlines that are soon to be here (i hope!). I have all kinds of plans with them already!
Oh and last but not least I have been looking at really old pictures of my family and decided to make a little booklet about my grandpa, he's so funny! And some other projects I am working on and hope I can show them soon.
What has been inspiring you lately?

And some other LO's

hi good morning!
Yesterday I finished 2 other lo's and here they are. I love the simplicity of the "candlelight"lo. I love the pic and can't believe I made it! (12x12"lo)
The other one is an old pic from the stack and it's an 8x8".
The rest of my new lo's are over HERE and HERE

It's back!

Yesterday I made 4 lo's and today I made another one! I have got a lot of photo's that needed to be processed so I made a stack and started on top with the cat pics. The first 4 I did in 8x8" and the fifth one is in 12x12" size. I also want to use all of the catpaper I have and probably won't buy any new one (unless they are way too cute ofcourse!). Still can't finish the christmasjournal but that's ok, I have been working on it way too long in just a couple of days so I will leave it for now and maybe later on I will finish it.
My financial situation isn't all that at the moment, I am not sure if I will get payed by my boss end of February, long story actually so I will leave it at this. What I was trying to say is that I probably won't be able to buy any scrapbooksupplies in a long while, too bad so I will have to do with what I have!

Some of you just might recognise something in my lo's!

Back again!

I am back after 3 days, no I haven't been anywhere but my computer has! It needed to be fixed, or at least 2 programms needed to be fixed so yesterday evening my computer came in again!
What have I been up to? Making my christmasjournal! I was and still am inspired by Julie Ann to make one. She made a digital one but I loved it so much I desided to make one of my own, not digital though. Here are a few pics of the first pages. The rest isn't finished yet, or not on a pic yet but I will share the rest pretty soon I promise! Julie Ann thanks for making such wonderful layouts and inspire me (us) to make one of my own!

The rest is over here Please do check!

Happy New Year to All

First of all: happy new year to you all; I hope you will all have a healthy, creative, loving and inspiring 2007! We didn't do much, watched some tv and only won € 10,00 in the state lotery, but hé we at least won something! I didn't set a lot of goals for this year, just some spiritual stuff oh and I made a list of things I really want to buy this year!

Today I started off buying myself a secondhand scooter, a Kymcom DJ, bright orange but as usual I never leave things the way they are, always want to change it to my likings so same story here. I just can't choose between a few option. For instance I wanted to paint it iceblue with bright silver shiny stars, ór purple in different shades starting in a dark shade and upwards it gets lighter, or purple, just one shade and make some baroque or doodles on it. Just don't know yet.

Here's a lo I made for the contest and I didn't win so I can show it now. Or actually SNOW it now! The theme was "winterwonderland"
