It's 2010!

Who knew that 2009 would fly by so quickly? It has been a good year for me and my family, and I have a lot of good memories from it. I just hope 2010 will be a good one too. There are a few changes coming up, but I hope those changes will do us good. There's no point in worrying about how things might turn out before you are there. Things that might look bad at a first glance might turn into something good eventually. I mean, change is good, isn't it?

Scrapwise, 2009 was a great year for me. I ended my year as a designer for Zutter/Bind-It-All, but it didn't end completely, I was honoured to be named OZZ, Original Zutter Zister, which still gives me an opportunity to hang on to Zutter and keep designing for them, in a way. I'm tremendously grateful for that. I have also found some really great friends in the Zutter team.

I was also asked to be a part of the design team at Scraplagret, which is a great honour, and a DT position I absolutely love! The other two girls on the team are fantastic, and so is Emma, the owner of the store. She is a really really sweet person, and she also puts together the most fantastic coordinated kits for us in the DT, and she has a fantastic sense of knowing what gets my mojo flowing, because there isn't one kit that hasn't been absolutely fabulous of those I've got so far, and quite a few of my favourite projects from 2009 are made with DT kits from Scraplagret.

Moreover, I was fortunate enough to be asked to guest design for one of my favourite paperbrands EVER, the one and only Graphic 45. That was a HUGE accomplishment for me, because I totally adore everything G45 has released so far.

And now I'm looking forward to a new year of scrappy goals to reach. As of today, I am joining the Scrap Within Reach designteam for 2010, and I am also guest designing for my favourite kit club My Scrapbook Nook this month, with their fabulous January kit that I hope will land in my mailbox in a couple of days. I will keep desingning for Scraplagret, and I will try to get a few projects into my OZZ gallery every now and then too. I have no idea what else this year has in store for me, but I hope it will be a good one, and I hope I will have the time and energy to update this blog a bit more often that I have in the last couple of months.

All that said, I am going to do what so many others are doing right now and show you my top ten projects from 2009.

The first one, a G45 Renaissance Faire layout, made for Scraplagret
Next, a witch hat made from Pink Paislee Twilight, for Halloween. It reached top 10 at 2peas.
An altered mini dresser, also from G45 Renaissance Faire, and made for Scraplagret.
Another favourite brand of mine - Webster's pages. I made this layout for a sketch challenge.
G45 Domestic Goddess, for Scraplagret.
October Afternoon Road Map, from a Nook kit.
Pink Paislee Amber road, also from a Nook kit, and this album is for a layout swap the Zutter Zisters had when our DT-term ended. So it's very precious to me, to say the least.
October Afternoon again, some older papers from the Weathervane collection.
More Pink Paislee Amber Road. I just can't help myself from giggling just a little when I see this photo of my little one sitting on a kid-size toilet which we found at IKEA in Malmö. She had been a bit hesitant about going to the toilet, but she had to try this one, since it was just so perfect for her.
And last but definitely not least, my Zutter Spinner Album, made with papers from G45. I love it!
Happy 2010 to all of you who still read my blog. I wish you all a happy scrappy year :)
