first and last


This is really fun, to look at my first layout and my last.

Its about a year ago everything started out for me.

In february i have a year in blog land.

heres my first layout:

Its daddy and his princess. shes so small. i was in the er so i didnt see her for the first 4 days. so daddy was her caretaker, she even took his nipple in her mouth but spit it out really fast,lol.

This is my last layout. this was for a contest where you were supposed to do a layout of yourself, and its not often you do that.

This one i did for about 4 month ago and havent done a layout after this . Nowdays its cards and alter, guess i would have big problems if i would be asked to do an lo.

Hope you liked my little walk down memory lane.

Wall hanger?


Hope you all have had a wonderful christmas evening. I did!

Heres a little thing i did. I was going to a ornament, but i dont now what happend.
I ended up with this.
I think its now a wall hanger, at least its hangigng on one of my doors, or did hang before my mother came.

The sentiment is from winkwinkink.

Dont now what i think of it, really. Im going to give it to mom, cause when she saw it hanging on the door she tought that it would look good on her bed room door. guess i cant give it to her, cause she just took it,lol.

oh well, sometimes the things i do just gets a life of its own. Ever happens to you?

have a wonderful and peaceful christmas holidays!

Merry Christmas!


Tomorrow is the BIG day, almoust ready, guess i will have some little things to fix tomorrow morning.
But i think i made it this year too.

This will probably be my last post before christmas (duh, christmas is tomorrow).
and i think this is my last christmas project, that almoust feels a little bit sad. I liked doing all this christmas projects, but...theres still a whole lot of winter projects to do. This could as well be just a winter project, right? So what am i sad about?
maybe its the feeling im going to miss? that christmas feeling, but hey, new years is around the corner, and then comes easter and  the wonderful spring and just like that its going to be my favourite season of the year...summer.

Guess i need to stop babbeling now, or this post will be a very long one. Its just that im so excited tonight...its CHRISTMAS tomorrow, and i now that theres a few gifts under the christmas tree where it says: to bettina.
I have been peeking, i have even shaked them a little, sssh, dont tell anyone,lol.

Ok, heres my little last minute christmas gift, its to my son.

I decorated a toffifee candy box. He always gets toffifee for christmas.

Look at this beautiful prima flower! Its stunning! Dont you think?

Heres a little envelope. i painted the edges with some crackle paint and added a little prima swirls.
In the envelope i put a gift certificate.

A little star. Painted with crackle paint.

and a bow.

Here i tryed to take a side pic.

Hope you liked my last minute christmas gift.
and i hope my son Jesper will like it. I now he will LOVE whats in it anyways.

So now...Ho, ho, ho...

Bless you all and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

hugs bettina.

christmas winter blog hop!


Welcome to creative cowgirls christmas/winter blog hop!

Can you beleive it?, only 5 days to christmas. Here in sweden we celebreate and open all the gifts dec 24th.
I still have some shopping to do. are you all done and ready?
Getting a little stressed now, lol.
Well i dont have that much to shop, just a few little things for my son.

Every christmas my dad bought our son a movie gift card. But this christmas dad is no longer with us and it feels really strange not to have him coming over and planning all the gifts with him.
So me and my hubby decided that from now on we will by our son the movie gift card.
It will not be the same as getting it from grandpa, but... we are doing the best we can to get everything to feel as normal as possible. guess we cant take the pain away but i think that with time it will get easier for everyone of us, the firsts is always the worst.
