Week 226 ~ Shake It Up!

Guest Designer

Please meet.....

I live in a place called Strømmen just outside Oslo, the capital of Norway, with my husband and son (17).  Cardmaking and scrapbooking have been one of my favourite things to do since 2005. I love my distress inks, Tim Holtz - scissors and seam binding ribbons and I am also addicted to beautiful patterned papers and different kind of stamps.
I love to do different styles of card making. I am easily bored if I have to do the same kind of thing for a long time. If I have made something cute I have to make something else next. 

I get inspired by blogs, magazines and patterned papers. I am easily inspired and I like to clean up my workspace before I start a new project. 

I also love the theatre and have been acting, producing and directing plays most of my life. When I was young, I studied to be a photographer so I love to take pictures. I also like interior design. I love to tell a story and express feelings and I think that all my work is influenced by that. Some people tell me that they sometimes can feel the theatre  and drama in my paperwork. I also like to teach, so I do a lot of scrapbooking and cardmaking classes.

I really like to work in my craft room in the late evening, and I am often so engaged in my project that I go to bed much later than I mean to. We have some really nice radio-programs in the evenings, that I love to listen to while I am working.

Have a wonderful day!
