If you've got nothing else to do...

you can calways make a vintage-y hanging bundle of... something. Honestly, I have no idea what to call this thing - ornament? Yeah, or whatever. It was a whole lot of fun to make though, and it will probably be perfect for brightening up some dull door knob in my farmhouse, or maybe I will hang it from the tile stove damper.
All the supplies come from Scraplagret.

Long time no bloggeth

Well, it's time to wrap up this school year and say goodbye to this year's graduating students. I'm definitely going to miss all of the very much, but new adventures await and I very much look forward to the summer holidays, and to start working again in August.

These are very busy times indeed, and while I'm running around like crazy, trying to get hold of the final assignments from the students (there's a lot of chasing to be done!), finish grading, and planning for the days that are left, as well as trying to make time for all of the activities involving my own children and their school- and daycare gatherings, I have sadly had very little time for creating and posting on my blog. But today, I just felt I had to write a couple of lines, letting you know that I'm still around.

There are some exciting things coming up. If you are somewhat local, live somewhere not too far from where I live, you have to know that there is something very wonderful going on, in the middle of our little peaceful village of Bräkne-Hoby. The grand opening of our very own local scrapbook store, KiAs Butik, is just around the corner. My dear friend Kristin is finally embarking on her dream journey, and of course, I'm thrilled! Read more about it here.

But coming up next, and this is of major importance, is the birthday of this little angel, my Agnes. She is five tomorrow, and she is so excited that it was next to impossible for her to fall asleep tonight. I suppose it won't be very difficult to get her up in the morning either, because she has a full day of celebrations to look forward to, first at daycare and then at home. She has ordered hamburgers for dinner, and she has also ordered lots of presents, which she of course will get.

Oh, and I must share something scrappy today too. Agnes loves the movie Tangled, and after we had been to see it, she demanded I'd make her a tower, just like the one Rapunzel lives in. And who am I to resist such a demand? So, I made this one for her.

I wish you all a great Friday, and a fabulous weekend!

My big boy

...is eight years old today. Whatever made those years go by so fast? Here is a layout I made the other day with my DT-kit from Scraplagret.
