Mini book in a box

Today, I've got a  mini book in a box to show you. I made this for Scraplagret, with wonderful papers from Pion Design.
This adorable box is from Graphic 45 (♥), and I immediately associated the shape of the lid with a door. So welcome in!
Inside, there's an accordion album with pictures from our ongoing renovation of the farmhouse.

As you can see, there are quite a few before - photos, and not so many after-photos. We're not quite there yet.

Today, we started working again after a couple of lovely holiday weeks. It felt really great to be back again, and it will be even greater tomorrow, when the students show up. I look forward to that a lot! However, I sure am tired tonight, so I'll leave you with that and go put the kids to bed.

Have a great week, everyone!

The M-house

Today I'd like to share a little house in the shape of an M that I made a few weeks ago.
It's full of teddybear pirates, and wouldn't it be a blast if one could build a house like this in full size for the kids?
Here's a little pirate on the lookout. I got these little teddybears from KiAs butik. Aren't they the cutest?
 Here's another one, on the swing.
That's all I wanted to share today.

The sun is shining, for the first time this year... I really would like to take the opportunity to spend the day outdoors, but I have a mountain of laundry to deal with before I can do that. No fun

Have a great day, everyone!

Just Chillin' with Riddersholm

Last winter, we had snow, and plenty of it. The kids took advantage of that, of course. We found an old kick-sled in the shed at the farm, and it was tested thoroughly on our driveway. Albin ran back and forth with it, and then, of course, he had to take a break. So here he is, just chillin'.
This year, we've had no snow so far, and it's been really, really warm. That's great if you think about the electrical bills, but it's no fun!

The layout is made with Riddersholm's collection Chantilly Dawn.

The last of Christmas and happy news!

I guess you are all pretty tired of Christmas now. I know I am, but I have a couple of more Christmas layouts made for Scraplagret to show you before we can forget about Christmas altogether.
I must say that I simply adore this Christmas collection from Pion Design, and I actually made something out of the scraps of it today, even if it isn't Christmas anymore.
Oh, and speaking of Christmas, that's what it felt like today when I got word that I won tickets and ride passes for the whole family to our favourite place - Tivoli in Copenhagen. Albin, of course, was over the moon, because when we were down there in December, he was just about tall enough for the most thrilling (if you're eight and a half) ride ever - Daemonen! So Albin, this is for you, and remember to eat up your vegetables in order to grow to be tall enough for this ride without your thick-soled winter boots:
