Welcome Winter

I could be without but there is nothing I can do about it 🙂

If I keep working at my computer I can pretend it`s not there.

Right now – a lot of hybrid scrapbooking. Digital templates from Cathy Zielske + Story kits from Ali Edwards make it inspiring and easy. Right now – I am adding to Anton`s album. From winter 2018…

Skiing is fun but for a boy who loves cars and emergency vehicle I guess this was the highlight of the day…

A police and a cute one made his day.

Refresh your living room.

That was yesterday`s assignment in the January Cure 2019. What to put in to the word refresh? According to the Cure –
“Ultimately, depending on your affinity for maximalism, you should aim to remove three to 15 things from the space.”

Big changes is not for me this January but I did manage to do a light cleaning of my living room. Good thing there was no clutter to remove 🙂

After a surface sweep and vacuuming I was ready to hug the sofa again for the rest of the week.

It feels like I have lived my life here for the last five months. What else is there to do when you wake up to this …

This weekend our assignment is to do the kitchen. I did plan to start on the kitchen earlier this week but had to pass on that. The kitchen will have to be next weeks big project.

Doing very little today – saving myself for my 10% at work tomorrow.

Just a little scrapbooking for Anton`s album…

Organizing photos from 2018

I thought organizing the photos from 2018 would be a good task for me to do in January. Working with photos is one of the few things I can do right now. Getting the photos from the harddisk to my computer was done in a minute. Wonder why? There was very few photos to transfer. Several from a mountain somewhere. Four from a May 17 and twenty from December 22 when grandpa was testing the camera settings for Christmas Eve.

I can`t blame anyone for the lack of photos. These days it is difficult to find the kids in other settings than this…

That means I have to reach out in to the clouds to gather the photos from 2018. They are out there but it takes a lot of patiens to do the work.

As I work my way through all those phone picks I try to update the family album…

Safety Course

Using words like brave and courage might be a little too much for this guy. He was one of those kids that jumped on their bike screaming “I can bike, I can bike” – before they had their nose in the gravel. He also jumped in to the sea screaming: “I can swim, I can swim” – before he sank to the bottom.

But – he certainly is adventures…

December Daily 2018

I have done December Daily since 2008 and I had big plans for 2018. For the first time I bought Ali Edwards album and some of the offered embellishments. Not the main kit.

December Daily album.

This is an album with a lot of space to fill and there was no way I could fill this album with my stuff so I had to rally some help from the rest of the family. We have a family Facebook group and I forced myself on the group.

The family Facebook group.

The week before December I gave them glimts of the last 10 years albums and tried to inspire them to share through out the month of December.

It almost worked. Of course it was only two of them that really played along. But two is all it takes to make it work.

December Daily 2018.

I am happy for the album but there was room for more so they could have worked a little harder 🙂

It is not easy to get great pics with a phone in a dark barn but this is my favorite from the month 🙂

Svein and Anton

Anton and his mother`s stepfather in the barn on Christmas Eve with porridge to Santa. Something I remember doing with my mother as a child.

What happened the night before when Santa came out of the barn – angry because there was no porridge is another story. Of course Santa could be wrong about what day it was…( and Anton`s young uncles knows how to have fun).

It is better to be two

The youngest member of our family got a bird as a pet last summer.

Anton Christmas day 2018

I am not so sure how much pet a bird can be but I guess his parents like the idea of a pet with very little work. Of course Otto was lonely in his cage so now he has a lady friend.

Otto and Ludde.

At least I think it is a lady friend. Not that it matters if it is a boy or girl.

Being two is better.

A story for Anton`s album…

Making a hybrid page for the album…

Even though I am all up to date with our family album I have to say that I was surprised to see that the last page I added to Anton`s album was fram January 2016. Bad Scrapbooker…
