I know I´v said it SO many times - and I still hope that I´ll start scraping again. I made this layout the other day and loved doing it, it was fun to see how it changed after I did "this or that". Then I posted it on one of my favorite scrapbooking site and got some great comment. So I cross my fingers and hope I´m up to more scrapping :)
This was a birthday gift from some very good friends I have. The card was made by using a coffee filter :) and I think that´s brilliant.

I was hoping that we would have a LONG Autumn this year - that did not happened but I took some photos of the beautiful colors that the trees are decorated with - on my sewing retreat with some good girlfriends. Here is just one of them taken from my bedroom window in the summerhouse we were staying.

Went for a walk with a good friend and our dogs. This is a beautiful place to take a walk and let the dogs run free. The weather was beautiful and the autumn colors - well most yellow - were nice.

I can hardly believe that it´s August already - where did time go! At least I have been very busy with us moving into our new flat that we painted and put new floor and are still working in getting us settled here. Photos will be later. For now I just wanted to post about A Photo A Day In August. It´s a fun thing this - taking a photo a day - and for the first 3 days these are my photos. 
DAY ONE: OUTSIDE - - - My DD´s car was parked outside
DAY TWO: ONE - - - One leaf of my - hopefully - rooting flower
DAY THREE: COIN - - - Some Icelandic coins

I love the sun set in Reykjavík, I try do go and take a good look at it every now and then. Here is a beautiful photo that I too.


This time it was heart, well I do love my family - all of them, my DH, DS and DD, but I used a photo of my DD for this. I put a heart around her sweet face :)

Today we are to post a photo of a stranger. What will that be, where should I go...... yes I can just take a seat in my sitting-room and look out my balcony door (through the curtain) and take a photo of a stranger on the other side of my window - door.  Creepy - nahhh not really, the apartment building I live in is being painted and if you look closely you can see a stranger - a painter


I have a mirror that my parents had, well they had two I got one and my brother got the other one :) His is still this boring brown color but I did not like that color so I painted mine a few years ago. This is not a big mirror but not that small. Here is a photo of mine :)

Monday, July 23, 2012


So many thing´s are upside down but could I find one this time! NO so I had to think ......... then when I was waiting for my dinner last night I was looking through an Icelandic magazine and came up with this rather silly idea, I turned the magazine upside down (I did NOT just turn the photo) and took a pic. Here it is.

21 9 O´CLOCK

This morning we had a nice weather even though it was cloudy the sun did peek trough the clouds so I went out on the balcony at this apartment I live in now and shot this photo at 9:00


OK this is a thought, eyes.......... should I photo mine? or my DD - my DS - my DH?  or should I find something different............ as the photo shows I found something ..... not human LOL
..... Twin needle for my sewing machine - I don´t use them much, actually I´v just tried them once or twice but I´m going to use them some more because it´s so pro-looking when you sew with these guy´s

My Chihuahua´s do not always like the same food. The white one - Frimann - does not like fruits, the black one - Nikita -  loves them LOL here she´s licking some juice from a Cantaloup - he did not even want to try it LOL LOL

My mom (gone for more then 19 years) was a very talented porcelain painter. She painted this plate for me and I use it a lot when I bake f.ex. waffles or pancakes.

My biggest addiction is my Mac and Bamboo Fun and pen tablet - that is if I do not count CHOCOLATE LOL LOL
the little figures on my desktop are tiny elf's that I found on line - handmade from felt. So cute. In bright colors no one is the same :) If I can find them again I´ll post about it - promise ( I know I wrote it down somewhere)


After our paint job this eve we had to stop at the supermarket and get some breakfast for the morning after. This sign is on the wall of the market called NÓATÚN and tells us that it´s open from 8-24 :)
Opið means OPEN

Been painting in the flat so I have some paint on my fingers, I did wash LOL but it did not all go away.

Saturday, July 14, 2012


I did a little cheating this time. I´v been working all day and did not take a photo - working in our new flat :) - fun but I´m very tired so this photo is of one of my favorite building in Reykjavík

I always wanted to live in this house, specially on the top floor LOL and when I see this house I STILL want to live there. ON THE TOP FLOOR


This on is easy for me because I have a lot of packing to do before me and my family will move to our own apartment in the end of this month :)
Here is my photo for this day - an open box full of stuff 


On day 12 the subject is TEXTURE - there I can find a lot of things I like, but decided on this fabric that I´m using in a tote for myself. I´m putting some images on my bag using my laptop, printer, paper, freezer-paper, little water and the back of a spoon.

LETTER - can be either alphabetical or mail. For this day I choose to use this mornings mail we got. I did play with the photo a little in PSE just to have some fun with it.


To choose my favorite color is not easy, I LOVE colors and whit every season my favorite color changes LOL. But the color that has been with me a long time is brown. That´s why I took this photo it´s a small quilted table topper that I made a long time ago. Sometimes I use it as a table topper and sometimes I just use it as a wall hanging decoration.

Here is my little calculator with a BIG number on it - this is my take on the 9th day BIG


I did not have lunch yesterday so I made this in PSE - I know it´s not a photo but I really wanted to put something in here for day 8.

I don´t have a garden - that is on my own, the apartment building that we live in right now has this garden that is absolutely NOTHING

5 On The Floor

On my floor...... a lot of things and the floor is very ugly were we live right now.  We will be moving later this month to our own apartment - YEHHHH - but on this floor I have something that I made many years ago and is getting very "old" LOL but my little dogs love it and so do I.

I had so much fun going biking with my DD - here by her bike - We went from our home to down town Reykjavik on our bikes, it took us about one hour and I only had to stop twice LOL for just minutes LOL the second stop was here - where the photo is taken - I just had to have a sip of water. The weather was great and I´m so proud of me for being able to bike ALL THE WAY LOL LOL

I find the mornings best time of my day. I often take a morning walk sometimes with my two dogs and sometimes with a good friend and sometimes even with my friend and our 4 dogs :) but this time I took my morning walk by a river and saw these cute baby geese´s with there mom and dad


For day 2 - BUSY.
Here is my photo where I´m "busy" watering my indoor plant´s 
Played a little with some texture on this photo
I´v always loved indoor plants and I do have a few of them - I think I have 9 right now + 3 that my DD owns.

Here is the info about this photo-fun if you would like to play along

Hope I´m doing this the right way. I saw this amazing blog and a free great pattern for a bag called "Metro Bag" that I can get for free just by linking to her book. 
Sew what you love at Barnes & Noble 
and also at  
Sew what you love at Amazon
So hoping I´ll get her pattern and if so I´ll be making a bag from that pattern for my DD and I´ll promise I´ll post some pics here when done.

Something small and cute for week 26 - a crochet baby´s hat. This is something I learn year´s ago but had lost the pattern, then someone on Facebook posted a photo of this and gave me the pattern :) This is so much fun to make. I use 100% wool called Babygarn that I bought in a store called Europris here in Iceland.

4 weeks 2012

Finely I´m posting something for week 22 - 23 - 24 and 25 :) I´m getting lazy at this project making of mine that I told myself and everyone else that I would do - one ... something for every week of the year 2012, not good, but that´s really how things go sometimes. I did give it a good try though and I´m not giving up just yet. So bear with me and keep looking to see if there is something new posted here :)
So for week 22 there is´s a picture 
This big house is in down town Reykjavík, a house that I would love to have owned and lived in.

Fore week 23 there is also a picture 
a huge Coca Cola can on the middle of a colf-course in Borgarfjordur - Iceland. 

For week 24 there is a sewing project
 I made this apron for a friend of mine.

Then for week 25 there is a knitted project
a tiny baby´s hat and mittens made out of Baby wool yarn.

For week 21 I did not make any craft, me and my hubby went for a walk around downtown Reykjavík and like always I had my camera with me. I made a layout of some doves that are becoming rare in Reykjavík. So for last week I give you this: I used a kit called Variation Kit from AmelieScrap.

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Well, well, well...... here is my work for 3 week´s OK I know it´s not much but I´v never done anything like this before and I´m going to do 17 blocks like this - needle-turn applique - for a project that I´m making. So as you see from this it will take me a LONG time but I do not care, I´m not giving up because this is also in the memory of a very good woman that thought me this method, but she died long before her time - I think. 
This is the first block
here is block #2
 here is block #3
