Crop at KiAs.

First of all, long time no see. I guess I got swept away by all the commotion about school starting over again. The students walked in at work, and I've been busy since. Albin and Agnes are back to school and daycare, soccer practice has started, gymnastics practise has started, and I'm back to doing laundry, packing gym clothes, school bags and all that stuff. On Sunday, both of them are back to swimming practise, and on top of it all, Albin has decided to join the scouts. I'm guessing we'll be really busy this fall.

Oh, and I forgot - we're painting windows at the farm. Today, P wanted me to paint. I grabbed the bush and I painted. When it comes to paint, I'm a perfectionist, whereas he isn't. He litterally paints the windows, meaning the glass. I paint only the frame. So I painted, carefully and perfekt - not a drop of paint ended up where it didn't belong, and I was really pleased with the outcome. Then P came along and had the guts to tell me that I painted too slowly! I almost threw the brush after him. But I guess I deserved that, since I had the bad taste of going cropping at KiAs Butik yesterday instead of painting windows.

I got tons of stuff done at the crop, among them this papier mache torso, which I altered using papers, stickers and trinkets from Bo Bunny's lovely Et Cetera line.
There was a challenge during the crop - to scraplift this layout, which I did last time I was there. The photo is from this summer, when we visited Glimmingehus castle. Agnes loved to sit by the window, very high up in the castle, and fantasize about whether there was ever a beautiful princess sitting in that window waiting for the prince to come riding on his noble steed... Thence the title - awaiting the prince.

And so, I scraplifted my own layout also here using Et Cetera. This photo was taken after a long, warm, dusty day at High Chaparral, our own Swedish wild west town. On our way home, we stopped by a lake to try and cool of a bit. I got this photo of Albin running along the platform as the sun was setting. The water was so warm that night, and the kids just loved it. They didn't want to get out of there.

So, that's it for tonight. I'd better be getting to bed soon. I thought I'd sit around for a while, finishing up a layout I started yesterday, but I think I'm too tired.

I wish you all a very good week.
