Eating my brain

Well, I promised you some brain eating, and here it is:

I made it after a few days of very little sleep, a VERY cranky little girl who took out almost all of her frustration on me (not her dad or anyone else - at least not to the same extent), and I was just so drained of energy. It took me hours to finish - and I'm usually a fast scrapper who finishes a layout in about 30-60 minutes. It was therapeutic and it felt good to make it - I needed to get it out of my system, so to speak.

Don't get me wrong - I love my little girl more than everything in the universe, and I know that I'm the best mother Kajsa can have - but sometimes you need some me-time. Some time alone. That makes me a better mother, I believe.

Take care!

Tickled Pink Challenge #3

I could not resist this gorgeous sketch:

- AND - the fantastic stamps from Tickled Pink, so I made a card for the challenge:

Isn't she cute - Lil Lolita Kellita?! I've coloured her with my Copics and Oh My! I'm glad to be back at it again. It has been kind of quiet around my craft room lately. ;)

Take care!

More baking

Yep, Kajsa likes to bake with her mum - this layout's title is from the lyrics of a very famous Swedish song that we use to sing for Christmas:

Roughly it says: A confectioner lives in this town. Anyway - I hope you can enjoy the layout even though you haven't heard the song... ;) I just love the colours in this layout - dark brown, white, and turquoise are great together, I think!

Take care!

Baking with Kajsa

This is an older layout that I've forgot to show you... Sometimes I'm a bit... forgetful... I didn't forget this much stuff before I became pregnant with Kajsa, but since then... My god - I think the pregnancy ate some of my brain cells...

About eating brains - I have a layout on the subject coming up soon. It was kind of therapeutic to make - you'll see... ;)

Take care!

Criss cross card

This is a criss cross card I made for a colleague who became a father a couple of months ago - his son's name is Casper:

It was the first time I've tried this card fold, and I will definitely do it again - so much fun!!

Mini album with Kajsa

Days with Kajsa 2010





I made this simple mini with pictures of Kajsa to give to her childminder, now when she's moving to a daycare center. It's tough to leave the childminder, since she was THE BEST, but we hope that the new daycare will be at least ALMOST as good - and I have confidence that Kajsa will fit in just fine there. She seems to like it so far. :)

Take care!

Birthday Card

A friend of ours is having her birthday soon, so I made her a card:

I've used lots of stamps from 7gypsies. and of course lots of flowers and Pearl Maker. Love it! The tag is a Tim Holtz die which I cut off a bit because it was too big for the card.

Take care!
