Follow your dream.

My daughter had a dream: to find modest, yet modern dresses. It seems that nowadays it's about revealing as much skin as possible. She has talked a lot about it and now she has got sewn dresses and they are ready for sale. Take a look at her website. So far there is only 1 dress in different seizes, but more dresses will come.

I promised I would show more cards, so here are some few:

Stampin Up: Best birds, centiment from Musical Season

Stampin Up: Truely Taylored, red centiment: Wonderous wreath

Stampin Up: Painted harvest + Alfabeth dies, wirly scribbles

Stampin Up:  Peaceful pines

Just some cards

I have hardly blogged in the year that has passed, and there are many reasons for that.

The biggest reason has been Lars's failing health and operations and getting used to the help of healthcare professionals.

Also we have had a lot of computer problems. So I have not been able to blog. The next couple of days I will blog again. I'm using my daughter Kamilla's computer. She's living at home for a short period of time.

Stampin' Up: Painted Harvest

Stampin' Up: Beautiful you

Stampin' Up: Daisy delight, Hello Friend

Stampin' Up:  I can't remember the name of the stamp set

Stampin' Up: Flying Home

Stampin' Up: Lovely wishes, Tranquil tulips

Stampin' Up: Falling flowers, Fruit basket

Stampin' Up: Tranquil tulips, I can't remember the name of the stamp set, used in the 3rd card

Stampin' Up: Lots of lavender, Lovely as a tree

I LOVE Christmas - the old style, that is.

We all have something to give.

I wholeheartedly believe that ALL has something to offer in this world. We can not afford to opt out of groups because they do not live up to some "value" that society has decided to b right.

In our family we know this to be true.
Our oldest daughter, Kamilla, was born in January 1989. We knew very soon that something was wrong, just not what it was. Soon it was very clear that she did not respond to nighter a teaching - or play time situation like her siblings did. We had to do something. We had to think out of the box.

We had problems at kindergarden and at church: She did not like big groups of children. At the time, there were not much more than teaching manuals available in Denmark.
Now we had a problem - or challenge as we called it, on 2 sides: both at kindergarten and at church.
Very soon we discovered that Kamilla liked pictures and colors. It helped her to quiet down, to relax. We knew, we had to focus on that in our teaching.
I began to search the internet. I felt so  blessed the day I found "Finch Family Games".
I contacted Karen Finch and told her about our daughter, and about the shortage of visual teaching aids in Denmark - in Danish. 

Karen Finch then granted me permission to translate her books, and distribute them in the Church and among church members. 
The only requirements she demanded was, that I only distributed the books I translated, and not the English version, and that I did profit from it. What a blessed deal. I hope Karen Finch will forever be blessed for her selfless action. Because of her, I had the opportunity to translate 28 books. This brings me back to the topic of this post: Everyone has something to give in the world. Since our daughter Kamilla was autistic, we had to be creative in a new and different way. Because of Kamilla, 28 books were translated. I would never have done this project, if it was not because of Kamilla. Because of Kamilla, many children in the church in Denmark began to benefit from the use of visual aids. (There's much VA to day - To day is much more different than 29 years ago.) Kamilla has blessed the life of many people - because of her disability. Do not deselect what you do not understand and which is strange to you.
Instead, See it as a gift - an opportunity to learn and grow as a human being.
