Just a little note!

It's been a while. So many things has happend, that I just did not have time for this blog. I promisse to do better...

 
My man! Every small piece has to be turned and turned again - what if it can be used somewhere... 

Lars at the hospital last week. He was hospitalized for a few days when the doctors thought he had a blood clot. Now he has to be followed by a medical emergency clinic to find out what's wrong.



 
 Here I've used Lucky Elephant from Stampin' Up. I have a friend, Eva, she loves elephants 


The text reads: It's your day to day.


I used Stampin' Up!'s stamp set: Avant garden.
The LO was made in 2 sizes: A card and a smaller card to be used in ex. a flower bouquet.


These last 2 cards were made using a stamp and die set fra Heartfelt Creation, and 2 embossing folderes


The flower came from www.heartfeltcreations.us arianna blooms
and from www.heartfeltcreations.us large sparkling poinsettia I used the leaf stamp and die.

Why not choose a new and better way?

Why is it hard to act in a new or different way?

As a child, I was exposed to some things that definitely shaped me, to what I am today. 

My thoughts the last few days have wandred back and forth about that, and a this thought came to me: 

Why are we hanging on to the things we have learned - which may not be good for us?
Why is it hard to change the way we think and act, if we know there's a better way?

Once it might have been a way to survive, or sometimes the only way to make sence of all the mess around you - BUT: today I am grown - and should be able to act more purposefully. Why then hang on in childhood experiences? 

Life must be lived, and we learn from good and bad experiences, even how to act around good and not so good people. However, it is not always we sort in our experiences as adults, and throw those away that does not work for us, or even still in some ways, ruin us.
Experiences that came our way and shaped us to those we are: Why let them stay, and be part of our lives? Perhaps even give them power over us? 

Finally, I have chosen to reach out for help. It is a decision that has not been easy. Family and a couple of good friends have pushed me in the right direction for a long time, thay never gave up on me. They have been by my side, until I was ready to look some heavy demons in the eyes.

I feel so blessed that they who never gave up on me, but loved me and accepted me for who I am. They saw more in me, than I did myself. Thank you all.

Random stuff...


Do you know the feeling that comes when you have to wait and wait?
A Danish saying goes: Everything good comes to the one who waits long enough.
Now it's official, my oldest daughter has started making cards, etc. We really enjoy ourselves - sometimes we sit all night in the middle of a project, and it's hard to mobilize the strength to go to bed.

The waiting is over - I have someone to share my interest with.
Here are some cards I have not shown before. They're not all great - I'm still a "newbie!"





On the 24th each month, I make a Christmas card.
 This tradition begang at OSH www-operationskrivhjem.dk









I'm trying to learn to make background paper...



And oldie from last year - I just had to make some more







This is prove that I do make other things than cards
 I love to bake, so to day I made 3 loaf of white bread.

A new endeaver




Sometimes it's good to be challenged.Thursday night I attended a meeting held by rhe Housing Association in which we live.Among other things was the election of a new board member... yes, I was suggested and opted for 2 years. I am excited to learn everything about this "job".The question is now, can I do it well - or will I fail.I will give it all I can, I will be open to learn and I'll be listening.
