wedding card

Finally I have some time for card making and scrapbooking. This winter was really busy, both in school, work and family time. Now I am enjoying a two week summer holiday with my family. Today my husband and my girls went to the swimming pool and I had some me time at my craft table, I made this card after I got a request for a wedding card. I think I will make a few more today and tonight since I have my crafting spirit by my side.

a little bit of knitting ;)

I've been refreshing my memory of knitting lately and made these hats and neck warmers for two little friends for christmas. My younger daughter was my model while I took the picture. They are made from 100% Icelandic wool.

where did the time go?

Geeeezz! Where did all the time go? It's almost christmas and I have just made one christmas card to show here. Well, school books, exams, essays, and other stuff have been taking most of my time lately, and these past few weeks I have been knitting a few christmas presents too.

So, I wish you a very merry christmas and hope you have a lovely new year!

The cards

I drove into the country side and visited a bunch of friends who were scrapbooking. I got there about noon and the plan was to drive home after dinner time. Well, I got home today, didn't feel like driving back home in the middle of the night so I stayed over for the night. The great (scrapbooking/card) spirit was all over the place and I managed to create 7 cards :) So here they are for you to enjoy :)

Finally :)

Hey ya'll finally I have some time to update my blog.... I have been so busy lately with school and work stuff and still have to find some balance between beeing a university student, working, keeping the home clean and of course taking care of my kids. In all this I really want to squeeze in some time for my hobbies, cardmaking/scrapbooking and the gospel choir. PHEW!!! I really would appreciate some time management classess this semester :)

Today, finally, I bought the bind it all machine, I wanted to buy it for my birthday present in April but when I was getting around to it, it was sold out in the only store that sells them here in Iceland. So I waited for the next shipment. Today, I finally picked up me beautiful pink machine and tried it already. Made a very simple notebook to note down some stuff I have to read for school :) I really look forward to make more projects with my lovely new gadget :)

So here's a pic, I took it with my very old camera it has only 2,1 megapixels and the battery last for about five shoots but it worked :) Mine is still in the repair shop, I'm really starting to get irritated because of it and am calling them every week now to as them to speed things up, I mean it has been more than three months now!!

Hope to have some more time to make cards soon...
