Happy birthday - Gratulerer med dagen, Mats!!!!!



Today my big, little boy turns 9. NINE!!! I can´t believe it! Yesterday we celebrated his birthday with his friends, and one should think that boys (and girl) at that age could sit still for at least 5 minutes while eating cake or to do some fabric stamping. Well, obviously not. Not even the planned cinema at the end was interesting for some of the guests, so we sent them outside to play in the snow...... It also seems that his friends all had asked him what he wished for his birthday, and he probably told them all the same thing, cause they all (except one) came with identical shaped presents, with identical wrapping paper and.....yes, you guessed right; identical toys inside. Ha, ha, ha. He didn´t seem to mind.....

Have a nice 4th of advent! Christmas is closing in on us....

A teacher appreciation idea

Some home baked gingerbread cookies, some cellophane, some ribbon, a homemade tag and voila, you have a quick teachers appreciation and Christmas well wishing. Anybody else busy out there???

My present...

....for my husband, was this book; 40 facts about you. So glad I made it, so glad he loved it and so glad I could use some of my old chatterbox papers.... To actually be able to finish this huge project on time, I chose for a simple design/consept. It works....

And by the way; Happy St. Lucia day!

Pepperkakebaking

Christmas time is closing in on us. Anyone getting stressed??? I can assure you, I am. On top of all the usual Christmas preparations, I have one dh turning 40 in two days and one ds turning 9 in ten. One of the Christmas traditions we have, is the making of gingerbread cookies, and the kids LOVE it. Fortunately we managed to find time to do that on Sunday, so now I only have to find time to decorate them. Probably today...... Here are some images to give you some inspiration and maybe motivate you to do some baking. Today's Christmas calender challenge at CASAkreativ is just about that; take pictures of your Christmas baking and try to capture the mood and the emotions. You can see it was a family happening and I think it is pretty clear that they enjoyed it..... Happy baking...

Look what I got in the post the other day......

New Sausan designs papers, tags, borders, frames, accordion album and stamps. The new collection is called the Love Generation. Now all I need is time to make some cool stuff. These papers and products are AWESOME!!! And those tags are just the coolest ever. My son already got to play a bit with the boy stamps and made some cool birthday invitations. The name sign is stamped and cut out. Mats couldn't let it be to draw some glasses on some of the boys:):):)





Products used from the Love generation, paper: love, border: bully borders, stamp: little boy mini set.
