At first a big thank you to all of you for visiting my brand new blog and for your comments. I promise to take time to visit your blogs. Feel free to leave a link to your blog, Flickr etc. when you comment, I would love to see them all.

It is about 3 months ago that I bought my digital SLR camera, so is still very new to me. I´m always looking for a chance to practice, so today I went for a photoshoot with my friend Lone´s and her daughter Olivia. It was fun and great exercise - literally since Olivia did not stand still and made me run to get my photos... ;-)

Making invitations with rubber stamps

I bought these two rubber stamps at Panduro and used them for invitations. At first I stamped on a piece of paper with acrylic paint and scanned it into my computer. Then I used the stamp to put the motive on the envelopes too.

This is who I am - part 3 - celebrate emotions

This is part tree of Divas and dreams  free workshop.

The assignment:

1. Express the feeeling by taking a photo that symbolise that feeling. You can take a self portrait or you can use a model/friend and ask him/her to express it for you.

2. Write about why you think that feeling is the most dominant one at the moment. And reflect about what the strenght of that emotion is.

The written assignment:
When I first read the assignment last week I was sure that I would pick the word sorrow or sadness, because I just lost a dear friend. Sitting at the funeral crying my eyes out, the prist said that we should remember, that the reason why we feel so sad is because we also feel love, love for the one we lost. So eventhough I still fell very sad, I decided that my feeling in this assignment should be LOVE instead. LOVE to my friend I lost, and LOVE to the friends I still have. The have truely shown me what real friendship is about. I also feel a lot of LOVE around me - coming to me from my family and friends - so my word should definitely be LOVE.

Mocha Ice Cream Cupcakes

I found this recipe on dessert divas and had to try it. I changed it a bit because im not that happy about the coffee flavor in icecream, so instead I made icecream with marcipan and topped it with whipcream that i made pink with food colour. The circle around the muffin is made with chocolate sauce.
I used my silicone muffin cups, normal size. (then it is okay to eat two ;-)

Mocha Ice Cream Cupcakes
Makes 6 cupcakes Prep Time: 30 min (plus 1 hour for chilling)

One 12-count box sugar ice cream cones
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup almonds, toasted and chopped
One 3-ounce bar semisweet chocolate, plus more for shavings
3 cups coffee ice cream, softened
1/2 cup chocolate-covered espresso beans, finely chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

1. Using a food processor, grind the ice cream cones into fine crumbs. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the butter. Divide the crumb mixture among the cups of a 6-cup jumbo muffin pan and press about three-quarters of the way up the sides of each cup. Spoon 1 tablespoon almonds into each cup.

2. In a small, microwaveable bowl, melt 3 ounces chocolate at medium power in intervals, stirring occasionally. Top the almonds with the melted chocolate to cover. Freeze for 10 minutes.

3. Spoon about 2 tablespoons ice cream into each muffin cup. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon chopped espresso beans onto the ice cream and flatten with the back of a spoon. Add another 2 tablespoons ice cream and the remaining almonds and flatten again. Add the remaining ice cream and espresso beans, and flatten. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

4. Whip the cream and confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form.

5. Run a knife around the edges of the muffin cups to remove from the pan. Top the cakes with the whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

this is who I am - part two

This is my second assigment for
Divas and dreams free creative workshop - new assigment every week, Stop by her blog an join in - it is free. 

The written assignment;

1. Choose 3 words that tells something important about your personality. One thing you don´t like and two that you love.

What I love the most about myself is that I´m (insert your word) CARING and (insert your word) CREATIVE.

What I hate the most about myself is that I´m (insert your word) IMPATIENT.

2. When you have your words, I will ask you to make a sentence using all 3 words. One sentence with all 3 words. Write the sentence down on a piece of paper. Do it your way, it dosen´t even have to make sense to others just to you. you will need to use this sentence in you photo assignment.

My sentence:
When I am impatient It can help me in the creative process of being a whole caring human being.

3. Last but not least I will ask you to reflect on your negative word, but in a new and positive way;

The good thing about being (insert your negative word) IMPATIENT is that there is often very little time from a thought in my head to action - I simply do not have the patience to wait for things to happen.

Being (insert your negative word) IMPATIENT is great because it helps me make things happen - or at least I try to...

The Photo assignment;
Take your sentence with the 3 words and use it in your photo somehow.

Want to make a paper crane the Origami way? Take a look.

In loving memory

My dear friend, I hope you are in a better place and I hope you feel peacefull as this picture.
Will miss you always.

This is who I am - part 1

Christina from Divas and dreams is having a free creative workshop - new assigment every week, for free and fun. Stop by her blog an join in.


This is my first assignment - "This is who I am - part 1"

The written assignment:

I picked 4 things that means a lot to me.

The green vase

was a gift from a dear friend. It came with a story and reminds me of a time in my life that was hard to go through. Besides from looking beautiful with or without flowers, it symbolize to me that I got though it with help from very good friends and family.

The Heart Charm Bracelet

was a gift from my children on mothers day. Even though it was my husbond who bought the gift, it means a lot to me. My son is so proud of that he gave it to me - he tells everyone that it is a heart from him and that it says I love you mom. gotta love that :-)

My watch
For my weedding my husbond gave me a beautiful watch, that was stolen shortly after. I didn´t wanted a new one, cause it was to expensive for us to buy again.
So instead he gave me this watch as a present a few years later when i gave birth to our first child Isac.

Gold bracelet

was given to me on my weedding day. It use to belong to my grandmother.
