30….or just 21 (for the 10th time)

OMG!! It's the BIG 3 0!! I'm not sure I'm totally ok with this, not sure I'm willing to take this step into the 30's... if it was the 1930's I might... but MY 30's?!?! Really unsure about that one!! I don't feel 30 though, I feel like me. Am I suppose to suddenly feel anything else just because I'm not "on the paper" in my 20's anymore? I will be 21 till the day I die! I'll be sitting there in my 80's with my rainbow-colored hair telling everyone I'm just 21, and they better damn well believe me (or at least pretend).
My Hair at 80!!!

I guess I don't have a choice being 30 on paper, but I refuse to turn 30 in my head. And thank god I have a daughter who lets me be as childish and crazy as her (she's 7), or maybe more childish and unstable as her aswell... but that is fine, cus she sure as hell will put me in my place if need be! Now wish me a happy birthday and I'm gonna get drunk tonight! 1898750_968949819833379_5102583519481615824_oOf-course-I-know-everything,-I-m-30-T-skjorter Hugs'n Kisses Maria Moonrise

Me, myself and my stuff!

This blog is at times way way to quiet, and I do wanna use it... but I just can't figure out HOW I want to use it. Sometimes I think I will start blogging more about games, then nah... what about my personal life..? Nah, it's not THAT interesting for people, I don't really do that much. Then I think what about my work-outs and climbing? But I don't know enough for it to be helpful for anyone else... so who would bother reading it... And my new thought goes back to how I started the blog in the first place... to be my creative outlet. So I'm gonna try to do atleast one art/creative project everyday, how ever small or useless it is I will get to be a little bit creative in one way or another. If it is digital or real-life physical art will differ in how I feel... it might be new creative photo-apps, a painting or just regular cards and albums I'm working on. This is some of my new stuff:

To make scrappbooking easier I make LayOut-Kits, this time I made 15 of them.

I knittet a headband for Emily a while back... or really it was for myself, but she stole it. ♥

Me and my weight!

2 years ago I decided that enough is enough, I can't go on like this anymore. I was way way overweight, I wasn't happy and I was NOT healthy. I had talked to my doctor about getting a gastric bypass, and I got a place on the waiting list. But I wasn't big ENOUGH so I wasn't a priority. So what was I going to do.. some people online said that I should eat myself bigger, yes, eat myself bigger... that's what they said. Because then I could get my BMI higher and then get into a shorter que. But no... not just no, i said HELL NO! I was not gonna eat like a pig just to get in a shorter que. I didn't wanna be like this anymore. I didn't want to be fat and overweight anymore, I didn't want to buy clothes JUST because they fit. I wanted to buy pretty clothes I liked, and that they fitted med wouldn't be an issue or even a question. And now, 2 years later, after a lot of help from family, friends, Spenst Stjørdal and Frisklivssentralen Stjørdal I'm over 50kg lighter, and I'm happy with who I am... I use clothes in sizes small/medium and I can buy clothes I like and don't have to worry about finding the right size all the time. It's an amassing feeling, I'm proud of myself and I like myself so much more then I did. I'm not ashamed so go to the swimming-pool or to do what I love. The local newspaper where I live also wrote and article about me together with and article about Frisklivssentralen. I was so nervous at first, because to see my before picture in a newspaper is kinda scary, but also it made me feel prouder of what I had accomplished. The paper is in Norwegian, but if you want to read it its HERE!! And after I lost all the weight, and got my extra skin removed I'm not afraid to show my belly in photos either 😀 So here you go. Maybe if I get really brave I will show you my before picture on my belly... but I have to think about that for a little bit. ♥ IMG_20141204_130227

Hoppe i senga!

Måtte bare ta noen bilder av Emily med det nye kameraet mitt, er litt sånn snedig at når man får noe nytt så MÅ man bare leke med det med en gang. Tihi. Emily hoppet å danset i senga vår, til Gangam Style og I Like to Move It!

Emilys nye rom!

Jeg har jobbet med å få i stand Emily sitt nye rom nå i en ukes tid, å endelig er det klart til at jeg føler jeg vil vise det frem.. vet jeg lovte bilder tidligere, men sånn ble det nå da. Først et bilde av hvordan rommet til Emily så ut rett etter at vi flyttet inn tingene hennes. Det var ganske fult, og det var ikke så mye plass å leke på. Samt det så alltid veldig rotete ut.

Jeg har forandret på nesten alt, det eneste som ikke er flyttet på er IKEA kjøkkenet hennes.

  • Jeg har solgt oppbevaringsmøblet som hun tidligere hadde, men som tok opp alt for mye plass... å nesten ikke var leker i.
  • Hun har fått seg ny seng, en Tromsö Loftseng fra IKEA. Den er ganske høy, jeg på mine 162cm kan stå under den. Noe som gir hennes god plass til å leke under og vokse med den.
  • Jeg har kjøpt ny pult som jeg har pusset opp slik at hun har mere plass. Å der kan hun ha sitt lille speil-skrin på, uten at det forsvinner i alt annet rot.
  • Hun har fått seg nattbort på høyde med senga slik at hun kan ha cd'ene sine og cd-spillern der.
  • Fått en hylle til å ha oppå bokhylla si.
  • Også fått ei bokhylle for de bøkene som er for høye til andre bokhylla.
  • Å en liten skuffe hylle jeg fant på loppis for 50kr.
Det er nå MYE lettere å legge bort klær, det er mere plass å komme seg inn på å hun liker det kjempegodt. Er enda et par ting jeg har på lager som skal opp, men det er ikke helt ferdig enda. Å kommer nok et innlegg snart om diverse av tingene jeg selv har pusset opp, eller laget.

Scrapping i 2012

I 2012 har det vell ikke blitt så mye scrapping som jeg normalt hadde ønsket, med campingvogn som "bolig" i nesten 2,5mnd og nyinnflytting i hus etter det så har det ikke vært tid eller plass for slikt. Å det er utrolig kjipt, men av å til blir det jo sånn. Men noe har jeg uansett fått scrappet, å her er noen av mine favoritter i 2012, i tilfeldig rekkefølge.

Julestafetten hos Scrapping.no

Har i de siste ukene vært med på en stafett inne på Scrapping.no sitt forum. Det går ut på å lage forskjellige papirkreasjoner i jule/vintertema, oppgavene varierer fra inspirasjon, farge, stilart osv. Her er mine 5 første innleveringer.
