today I've been wrapping my last gifts, it's for my boyfriend, I made him different stuff, the last thing was a cassette, (I trust he won't read my blog just now...) with our favorite songs on...I'm really a cassette girl, tape recorders were the essential item of my childhood, (of course, the record player also was, I still love all my lp's, and still have a record player to this day, but...I remember so foundly all my children music on tape...that came with a little book, and you could follow the story in the book while listening, and when you heard a "drrring", you had to turn the page over...)so...I'm a cassette fan, and my teenage years consisted of making tons of mixed tapes, "best of soundtracks", "best of 50ies", "best of Tove":) ...and really, though I make cd's now, it's much more fun with the cassettes, I like the small sounds on the tape when you stop and start between the songs, no fear of the computer making a mess, and the best; you can end the cassette twice!! if you have two songs that are perfect, and you can't choose between them, there's one for each side. I love the fact that you have to turn the cassette around. I'm a retro girl...cassettes are already retro, I notice in fashion and everywhere...but for me, it's my childhood!!
Now...I'm ready for christmas with my bunny! bunny bunny is so sweet! I don't think he knows he's being exposed on the internet ha ha ha Now I relax and just wait for my boyfriend to come, we will have hot chocolate, and tomorrow, we'll watch cartoons and eat candy!!
...there's one more thing...there's snow here...it's so beautiful, it's unbeliveable. I've been posting photos earlier, but I can't resist, here's one more!!...
I'll have a lazy evening...just browsing scrapbooking blogs and eat fruit...I'm a junkie for clementines, I eat so many everyday, I wonder if it's possible to get a vitamin-c shock, maybe I'll explode, or turn orange...??
pink christmas to everybody, I wish you the most beautiful holiday, be happy and enjoy** and thanks to everybody who's stepping by, I wish you the greatest, creative scrabooking year ever!! we rock, don't we??

I finally managed to find a white tree!! I wanted a big one, but they only had small ones left... then, later yesterday, after I was home, decorating my small tree, whom I already was in love it, despite the fact that it's only 50 cm or something...my father called, and said: I got you a big tree, I found one!! so, he lives 1,5 hour drive away, and I will get a big tree for next year!! I don't mind, I'm so happy for my tree now, since I searched everywhere to find one... My flamingo is in the middle of the tree, it's my favorite!
tomorrow, I'll post bunny photos! AND....my hair is pink again!:):)
...and, I almost forgot, I got a little challenge from Scrappelise... 7 wishes you have for christmas...so...I will try to do it...
1.no stress, no rush, no checking the time
2.that the beautiful white frost outside will last till after christmas
3.that everyone will be happy and confident!
4.of course, I wish for peace, and some more politic that bothers me: I wish that our elderly people will be treated properly by our lazy government, that teachers, nurses and kindergarten teachers will get the salary and status they deserve, because they work they're butts off, and they're so important! and...I wish that everybody who needs it, will get medical treatment, without queing for months and years...
5.ok, that was a long one...now this is shorther:I wish that no animals will have to suffer!!
6....I hope maybe my dreams will come true, and I hope the dreams of my friends and my family also will come true...
7.that my creativity will keep coming, that I will keep scrapbooking forever...!!
I'm sure I have now forgotten a whole lot of wishes...but that's for now..!

...I'm into writing in english again! christmas is approaching so fast, I'm not the real christmas geek, but I like to make presents for my friends, and now I'm in a hurry, I can't even get my gift wrapping straight, I need some more stuff before I'm done, and already tomorrow is my first gift swap...another one is on thursday...
this christmas, I'll be with my bunny, and we'll have happy, bunny christmas, with lots of carrots and bananas for him, and good dinner and caramel pudding with ice cream for me. it'll be nice and quiet, and I'll just relax, opening presents, not going out in the cold, no stress, nothing but cuddly, warm living room, and lava lamp*
I was supposed to be scrapbooking a lot on saturday, we had a crop at my friends place, but I ended up making only christmas gifts...I haven't been overwhelmed with energy lately, I think I sleep to little, and doesn't eat properly...I will try to do better this week, chill and have fun...I do have fun though... Today I'm at work with hot chocolate and fruit bursting with vitamine c...hopefully it will do me good!
I have done a lot of scrapping lately, though...some of it can be seen at THE DOZEN website (link to the left), it has my name on them, so they're easy to find in their gallery. I'm totally into colors now...all colors...I want to make rainbow jewelery, I'm going downtown tomorrow to buy some stuff!
also...I've started packing my stuff...I am moving for sure, I don't know anything more than that, but I'm crazy for getting something nice and light, with a little garden, or at least a big balcony, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to buy anything, I hate the struggle with money...but today I found some interesting jobs on the internet that I'll definitely apply for...they're just what I'm looking for!! but still, I'm newly educated, I don't have any experience....I cross my fingers...my friend will help me apply, it's my first real job search, I need some tips...
and if I get a job...I can maybe get a place to live...with a little studio, where I can work; do my scrapbooking, sewing, painting, all fun stuff...
today, I'm picking up my bunny at my mum's...he's been on holiday there for a while, she enjoys it so much, and he gets attention 24/7, so it's a great deal, but I miss having him home, he's my baby, I have a slogan, (as you know, I don't want children), so; rather bunny, than baby ha ha! my boyfriend made me a button with that on!
...and with a new place...I can arrange things better for my bunny, so he can run even more freely on more space.
todays tip for bunny owners: go to your local wallpaper store, and ask for a cardbox that's been used for, yup, wallpapers! slice it open in both ends, and place it one the floor. now your bunny has a brand new tunnel. your bunny will love it!! (mine is chewing his constantly)
...this was a long post! thanks to all who made the effort to read all this....I'll be back with a more colorful post next time, promise:):)

på Palle kjøpe vi pez-figurer. lammet var min aller første pez, den har en fløyte i nakken, og begynner å bli litt gul og sliten... Pluto kan svinge på ørene, og Ole (eller Dole, eller Doffen...?????) har nebb og lue man kan ta av... Ingenting er som mine barndoms pez*
....nå har jeg levert alle eksamenene mine....det betyr FERIE!! jeg har liksom ikke kommet igang helt, men har scrappet masse i går, prøvde å bare bruke the dozen-kit'en, men det fikk jeg ikke til, jeg måtte legge til noe annet stæsj, jeg kan jo ikke scrappe uten broderitråd og maling og rosa tyll...hm...
skal legge ut etterhvert, men så langt kommer jeg ikke i kveld...
jeg tror ikke jeg er lagd for kit'er, jeg klarer ikke å holde meg innefor rammene, jeg må gjøre som jeg vil, sånn til syvende og sist...jeg er tilhenger av å være helt fri scrapper...ingen grenser, ikke føle seg bundet til noe...jeg scrappet på et gryteunderlag av kork (IKEA!) (billig moro) også i går...
har også begynt å produsere julegaver...men det er jo hemmelig...
og forresten....tusen takk og varme stjernedryss til alle som er inne og leser og kommenterer, det er så hyggelig!!

...har laget julekalender til kjæresten* ....er ikke helt inni rødt og grønt og gull...julens farge er rosa, og hele resten av årets farge er også rosa:)
snøen regner bort nå, den var så fin i går kveld, men når vi våknet i dag var det bare sorgen, det er sørpe overalt, og ikke akkurat julevær, ugh, min desember begynner uansett ikke helt før jeg har levert siste eksamen, på onsdag...
...det skjer mye rart og gøy og spennende nå...har bestemt meg for å flytte; vet ikke hvor, vet egentlig veldig lite om hva som skjer framover...men tar det litt etterhvert...jeg er lei av å være student, jeg har en grad nå til jul, jeg tenkte å kanskje jobbe en stund....kanskje finne et sted å bo som er mitt...men det er drømmer, jeg vet ikke om det blir noe av....uansett, det blir forandringer, og jeg liker det!
I går fikk jeg pakke fra usa i posten, rosa fjærboa, grønne chipboardbokstaver og kult tegneseriestæsj, skal legge ut når jeg lager noe gøy...men ikke enda...noen dager til i utlendighet...*
åå, glemte å si...jeg så Kent på torsdag...dobbeltsukk, det var bra det!!! han fyren i publikum som sto ved siden av meg og sendte tekstmeldinger under helt konserten, han skal jeg slå, han må det være noe galt med....
*älskling, vi skal alla engång dö*
