My new journal

One night I was unable to sleep, so I watched a bunch of videos on Yuotube. One of them was by Marianne Kensington where she turned an old book into a journal. I was so inspired. I went to the basement and found a pile of books.
I wanted to make a smashbook for journaling about memories. All kinds of random memories, that my kids might enjoy reading about someday.
To me, memories are like quilts. They come in so many different colours and patterns. Therefor I didn't use a certain coloursceme. I just used all sorts of papers, that I had.
I still need to make extra tags and to decorate the front. But I'll give you a quik peek anyway:

I admit it, it is pretty

I may be sick and tired of mother nature and all that freaking snow. But on a day like today, despite my longing for spring, I do enjoy the winter wonderland.

Det kan godt være at jeg er dødtræt af Moder Natur og al den forbandede sne. Men på en dag som denne, på trods af min længsel efter forår, så nyder jeg alligevel Winter Wonderland.

Yay! This is me

Here in Denmark we have a saying that translates into something like: From drunken people and children you will hear the truth. With that in mind I show you this drawing my son made. See that long legged babe with the fancy hair? That's me. And here I was thinking I am a short legged woman with uncontrollable hair. But remember the saying!
And it turns out that my son thinks I'm the kind of mum, who is great at tabletennis. Who would have known!

Fra børn og fulde folk skal man høre sandheden.
Med det ordsprog i baghovedet, viser jeg hermed denne tegning frem, som min søn tegnede til mig. Tjeck lige den der langbenede sild med det seje garn! Det er mig, nemlig. Og her gik jeg rundt og troede, at jeg er en kortbenet kvinde med et uregereligt hår. Men husk nu lige ordsproget.
Og så ser det ud til, at min søn mener, at jeg er den der slags mor, der er vildt hård til bordtennis. Hvem sku ha' troet det.

To who it may concern

Hello everybody in the weatherdepartment. This photo was taken less than 2 weeks ago. And now: Snow?! Seriously?It's the 17th of March. The calender says spring! Just saying.

Til rette vedkommende i Vejrafdelingen. Dette foto blev taget for mindre end 2 uger siden. Og nu. Sne?!
Seriøst!? Det er den 17. marts. Kalenderen siger, at det er forår. Jeg siger det bare.
