She's alive!

I know... It's been ages since I last updated this blog. Actually, it's been ages since I last did anything creative at all. After we moved, I've been filling my days doing everything but scrapbooking and stamping. I've been knitting like a crazy person, painting my livingroom, getting settled in our new home, taking long walks, reading and catching up with family and old friends.

It's been like a long, long vacation. But I guess that was what I needed. Crafts should always be fun, even if you do it as a job or as a hobby. I think it all became a bit overwhelming for a while there.


But I think it is starting to become fun again. I bought a bunch of matchboxes a while back, and started to decorate them. Fun and easy, and just what I needed to get back in action. Did you notice? I'm hooked on curling old book pages... *lol*

Now I just can't wait for christmas! :)

Det var hyggelig å se deg tilbake igjen :) (tror det er rundt tre måneder siden jeg la deg til i bloggen min og etter det "forsvant" du. Lurte et øyeblikk på hva jeg hadde gjort ;) )
Så nydelige esker du har laget og ja...virkelig lekkert med "rullene" av gamle boksider.

Gratulerer med nytt hus forresten.

Ha en flott dag
Klem
Marianne

You're always worth waiting for :o) Love the curled pages. My crafting has been VERY slack lately, like you say crafting should be fun not a chore. Hope your new home brings you lots of joy.
Take care & keep smiling

WELCOME BACK!!! We missed you sooo much! I agree with you, even if we LOVE creating, we need to close the crafting room's door from time to time and enjoy the life outside that room.
Lots of love,
Sanda xx

Det er en tid og sted for alt her i livet og noen ganger er ikke scrapping og kortlaging det viktigste. Det er imidlertid hyggelig å se deg tilbake med din kreativitet igjen. Håper det ikke er lenge til du poster noe nytt.

Glad to see you're okay and creating again. You're right when you say crafting should be relaxing and do it at your own pace. Take care and looking forward to whatever else you'll be making. Have a lovely day!

I am glad you feel like creating again

Så nydelige fyrstikkesker du har laget. Så bra at du har kommet i gang igjen, med kortlagingen altså :-)
