How does a picture frame and Stampin Up! work together?

I had a great afternoon with my daughter and grandson. We drove to Århus, and did some shopping at IKEA. 
It's the 2nd time I'm on a longer trip, since my last operation. When I came home, I sleeped for a few houres. I found out to day, that I still have to slow down, and just enjoy life - I'm not ready as of yet, to do all I want, when I want - but I'm getting there.
Have a blessed dag - Conny

How does a picture frame and Stampin Up! work together?

Birtday Bloom stamp set, Chocolate Chip stamp pad.

I found an idea on pinterest and I just had to try: 

Use a pictureframe instead of a MISTY

It works! The picture frame is Hemmingsbo from IKEA.

Place the stamp on the lid, and ink it up.

Close the lid, and gently press the stamp & acrylic top, down on the card base.

This is what it looks like! It's so easy. The stamp clings to the lid, so now it is easy to
massproduce cards with the stamp in the same place!

A bit of everything!

This sign was over the door in the hospital room where I was - one of the many times I was in the hospital.    "On a scale from 0-10 who much pain are you in right now?" Oh, I've heard that question many times. This was the fist time I've seen a sign like that. 
Maybe it will help staff and patient to understand each other better.

Now it's time for an update. There has been many things going on in our lives.

With the help of friends from church, we moved from our home, Hattemagervej. It was a strange feeling. It had been home for many years, and now it was over. For the next many weeks we wolud live at a friends apartment, until we could move into our new flat.

Usually, a move can be very stressful. There are many decisions to be taken, things must be planned, you may need to ask others for help and so om. Good friends came - took over for us. We hope they will be blessed for their great help. We know they have made sacrifices in order to be able to help us. 'We have not been able to do handle the last 1½ month without their help.

I have been hospitalized again and had surgery for the 15th time in 2 years. My body can't take anymore. It's tired. Lars is not well to. Therefore, we feel the blessings of heaven through our family and friends in a big way. All encourages us. All are there for us. We are grateful for all the prayers that are offered on our behalf.
We move into our new apartment next week. We can't wait for our "new beginning".

Some other news I can tell you are:  our son, Jimmy, moved to England. He has a job already. We wish him the best. We miss him. We wish he was with us - but it is his life, he is writing his story.
The Danish author Hans Christian Andersen once said: To travel - is to live! We look forward to follow Jimmy on his new journey.

Until next time, take care!

Want to hear some good news?

Only good news!

This update is only good news. Lot of things has happed in our family, and not all positive.
This update will not deal with those things.

Our real estate agent has worked very hard to sell our house, even helped a potential buyer to find finaces, only to see it all fall apart ... but he did not give up, he just tried something else.

He has gone the extra mil - not that he needed to, but he had compassion for the situation we involuntarily has fallen into.
He visited us again yesterday with good news:

The house is sold! We have 6 weeks to pack the house, the buyer will take over the house
September 1, 2016.

We feel blessed, relieved and tired. The "For Sale" sign is gone, a new chapter is about to begin!

A special message!

What message do our prophet have for us today?
“This is our one and only chance at mortal life—here and now.
The longer we live, the greater is our realization that it is brief.
Opportunities come, and then they are gone.
“I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not.
“I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and non-existent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now.”

Here's a few gift tags I've made.
The Christmas trees are from the set "Lovely as a tree" from Stampin Up!

The gifttag to the left is stamped  using the 1st and 2nd stamp generation technique.
The gifttag to the right is stamped and then embossed.
For Santas buckle (next time I'll use my copic and color it Gold), I used the lock from a soda can.

A new day!

Here in Denmark it is almost 7 in the morning so:
Hello to a new day, and new opportunities.

I was admitted to hospital last week. I was in pain all the time, and it had become unbearable.
In turn, this time, the doctores have found out what they believe is wrong with me:
my attacts are miner vovulus. It fits with the symptoms.
What can they do to help me? Nothing, just give me medicine.
Becaurse the seizures are small, they will not operate.

Something positive is that yesterday I was painfree for the first time in 2 weeks.
I´m now the same diet, as the one I was on, just after my obesity surgery in 2010, and it seems to work!!!

I've wondered something about
  • who we think we are,
  • why do we endure the pain and problems that life offers us?
  • Who teaches us what is right or wrong?
Yesterday, I read in 2 Nephi 27:25 in the Book of Mormon. I would like to share it with you. This is only 1½ line of the verse,
... And their fear of me is learned by man's laws "

I don't like when a sentence is taken out of context. These words just hung with me the rest of the day.
  • Some do not believe in a God who can guide and inspire,
  • Some may not see a purpose in what they go through during the time they are on earth,
  • Some may think that life here is all there is ...
I believe in a Heavenly Father who inspire and guide us. That we will one day return to Him again. Hardships, challenges or whatever you want to call it, is to shape our character. That we through our live here, show our love for Him, who is the Father of our spirit.

Now remember while reading the scriptures, that fear in oldens days also meant honor and respect. So basically the scriptur says: 

"man's respect for me is learned by man's laws"

What do our children learn today: 

  • That there is no God? 
  • That it does not matter if we keep the commandments which He has given? 
  • That we are Christians in a country founded on Christian values, but do not care about Him - is that good enough?

If we do not teach our children - others will! 
If we do not teach our children - can we blame that they accept what other teach and believe? 

My heart burn for the freedom to choose. I believe very strongly that you should not force your believe on someone else.

My thought is simply : What are the values ​​we provide our children with?~


A few cards for OSH (

The smaller card, is a gift tag.

The text says: Who cares about the question, when the answer is chokolade!
