I did not finish my work with Kim because of my laptop problems, now I´v solved them ALL by buying myself a brand new MacBook :) :) so I decided to take the Skinny Mini e-Course again in January. Therefore I will not be posting anything from the December Course. Looking forward to start the new one in January.

This is one of five snowman that I´m making for a table runner. I´ll promise I´ll post a photo of the topper when I´m finished with it. I find them really cute. But then I do LOVE snowmen but I do not LOVE the snow.... as many of my friends know. LOL

I have a freebie for those who want it, 6 scrap-booking papers that I just made :) I´m practicing with my PSE6 and these are really the first papers that I make as a set. Hope you like them and can find some use for these papers. You can download them right here, MY PINKY PAPERS


My work on day 7 at the Skinny Mini e-Course with Kim. I really love what I can do to my photos, and all the things I´m learning at this Course, working on my PSE6 - it´s amazing what tiny little things you can do and make a photo look very different from the original one.

This is the original one ............................................ and this is the one I worked on, if you look closely it´s not just black & white photo, but has a touch of color on the light, can you see it?

I just made this Tote Bag for a very good friend of mine, she does not know that she will get this:) I did not use any pattern just kind of worked until it was finished. I like the outcome and wanted to let you all see this. Her favorite color is purple.

We took a walk yesterday with our two little Chihuahua´s in the frost, in the end they were so cold that I took them both and put them in my big parka pocket - if you look closely you can see there heads:) My Nikita is wearing her pink coat, and Frimann is wearing an army green coat, that you can not see.

I did some baking today:) see the photo, these are a very Icelandic - I don´t even have a name for them in English :( but they are sooooooooooooo delicious I wish you could taste them. My mom used to make these all the time, but this is my first time - to do this ALL ALONE - my DD has helped me before but she was not at home this time.

Look what I got last night:) I was attending a meeting with the Icelandic Quilting Association, and we were suppose to bring small Christmas gifts. And this beautiful thing came my way. I´m so happy with it. A cute pouch, with a fat quarter of a cool Christmas fabric and a nice measuring tape - the coolest measuring tape I have right now:)

I was browsing the Internet and came upon a very cute Santa :) and thought WOW these I can make as a little X-mas gift, so I did - and I love how they turned out. I thought I had bookmarked the site where I found these cute Santa´s but I can not find them again, so if anyone knows where they are from - please let me know:)

By the way my DD is wearing a wool sweater that I made for her last spring :)

Finely.....I can write a new post, I was having so much difficulty here and was not able to write any new posts, but then I though of "HELP" LOL LOL and I found the solution - it was to go to the "old editor" and it works LOL as you can see from this post.
I know I´v not been very active on my blog and I do not have any excuse really. So to make it up to some of you here is a freebie that my friend Greenfinger and I made ( well I only made the word-art) so if you are interested just grab it and enjoy.

The freebie :
