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 these 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 it, 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 warm day!

A quiet day, a sunny day, a warm day - what's not to be happy about?
The only big thing to day, was the inspection on our house. It went very well!!!

To day there were lots of free time, so I did some embrodery and made a few cards.



This card is made with my new stamp fra Stampin Up, called:
Thoughts and prayers, sympathy



With my very old trusted friend, Craft Robo, I made this little monkey.
I used it on the front of a childrens card. On the back there's a pixibook.




Another stamp from Stamping Up! called: Kind koala
Isn't this little koala cute?




Inspiration for this last card came from Pinterest. 
Left the card is shown closed, to the right the card is opend.

Waiting...


Have you tried to wait for something at a certain time and then suddenly, everything changed, and you can not do anything about it? I have recently. Not that it was something big, but it was something I had been looking forward to since January. I love control! When something happens that I can not control, I do not feel good at all. Yesterday came so I had been waiting for - a small package with a stamp in it. Imagine a small stamp can stir up so much emotion.
I came to think, how much I wonder I miss out on, because I prefer to have control of all things. 
Here, when I accepted that I could not do anything about the package came later than agreed, I began to look forward to when it would arrive. I started imagine all the cards I could make with the stamp. I began to search the web to see what others had done. I can honestly say that I appreciate the stamp more today because of the wait - than if I had got it right away.¨
Perhaps it is sometimes good to wait! Perhaps we need to wait to use the time to develop and see opportunities we would otherwise have missed.
Take a look. I now need to learn new techniques, I can't wait.
