Happy New Year

It is the last day of this year, and I have to just say it has been an interesting year with a lot happening.
I am grateful for every little thing that has crossed my path this year.
Every new friend, every new experience, every new knowledge
and every laugh, happy thoughts and hugs.

Thanks to every one of you that has been in my life this year.
All of you have been there for a reason, for good or bad, it doesn't matter, and I thank you for that.

Now I would love to welcome you into my life of the next year.
I will embrace you all with all that I have.

So, as an end of this year I will share with you my little Starboy Edwin.
Made as an Christmas tag to my nephew

Pink Ribbon

My first Pink Ribbon card

I have been so fortunate to been asked to help Copic Marker Norway and their donations of cards to
rais money for the Breast cancer recearch foundation.
Copic Marker Norway is a group of really wonderful ladies that makes the most beautiful cards, and I am so honored to be a guest designer for them in this.

Anyone can buy this cards, but just remember that the text inside og outside might be in Norwegian.
The following text in this post will be in Norwegian.

Jeg er så beæret å bli spurt om å være en gjestedesigner hos Copic Marker Norge
i deres Rosa sløyfe kampanje og innsamling til Brystkreft forskning.

Jeg tenker jeg har god grunn til å være med på denne innsamlingen, da jeg har flere rundt meg som har vært og er rammet av brystkreft. Og jeg ønsker da å gjøre dette for dem og alle de som måtte oppleve brystkreft i fremtiden. Kan også i den forbindelse nevne at min bachelor oppgave faktisk omhandlet brystkreft hos gravide og barselkvinner. Så dette er et felt jeg brenner for.

Hos CMN finner du alle kortene som er til salgs HER

Det vil etterhvert komme flere kort fra meg også som legges ut til salgs der.
Men foreløbig har jeg bare ett som ligger klart.
Og du ser hvordan det ser ut i detalj nedenfor her.

Håper DU er en av de som trenger et kort og 
samtidig ønsker at Dine penger skal gå til innsamlingen for Brystkreft forskningen.
Støtt en god sak sammen med oss!

Nordstjernen

Jeg har helt glemt å dele med dere et intervju jeg deltok i for The Papercrafting - Scandinavian edition om Nordstjernen. Hvor de trekker fram flere fra Norden som elsker å holde på med papirhobby. Her finner du mange flotte mennesker som lager de utroligste ting. Jeg er meget beæret å bli spurt om å dele litt av min verden der. 

Du finner intervjuet her

Uansett hvem man tenker at jeg er, så blir jeg først og fremst meg selv.
Elin. Kona til Guru, mor til Steven og Vijey.
Datter, søster, svigerinne, tante, venninne og så sykepleier.
Kreativ og leken, med et smil til alle som fortjener det. (dvs alle)
Med en bagasje som bare er min, og sko som passer bare meg.
Altså vanskelig å definere...
Ta meg for den jeg er, eller la vær. 


Min familie. Min mann og meg som ung og i dag.
Og våre to flotte gutter.


Må ikke glemme denne flotte karen da..
Valtino er Vijey sin gode venn, og bor her sammen med oss.
En flott blanding av Husky og Fuglehund


Takk for besøket og velkommen tilbake
xoxo Elin
