Today I´m sharing my gingerbread-house with you.
It´s all about the colors.
I buy candy that match.
Last year and this year; brown, orange, pink, red and purple.
The frosting is thick and white.
One egg-white and icing sugar in the blender till it´s thick and fluffy.
Now decorate.
The house is downloaded from Martha Stewart.

Wish you luck Ü

Eight is for homemade.
So here ´s an idea:

We made these last year, Mathea and I.

M made me a drawing of an angel.
I fell in love.
I transfered it over too white fabric, with a pencil.
Then sew by hand and decorated it with pearls and ribbon.
M was proud and her grandparents got so happy.

This is a nice way to remember and take care of your kids favorite drawing.

December will be so good!

This sweet little man and his mom came to shoot some photos the other day.
I think Alma fell in love, cause she giggles each time she sees the pictures on my screen.
He sat still for five seconds.
I´m laughing.
We even tried the TV.
Such a sweet and happy little fellow.
Thank you for the fun moment.

I´m honored and proud. Two things.


The other day the editor from boligliv.dk (my favorite magazine) asked if she could use some of my photos.
She was making a list of Norwegian blogs.
I´m in good company with Kardemomme, Fru Fly, Borghildpia, Minas Paradis and Marie in Wonderland.
Thank you!!


On monday I had a visit from Dagbladet Søndag.
They are making story about homemade Christmas. Such a nice visit.
I can´t wait to read and to see the pictures.
Alma was all over the place and I don´t think I was able to speak one whole sentence before;
...nooo Alma, oops Alma...oh...poor you little sweetheart.
I wonder if we can have a Christmas-tree this year?
I´m laughing.

I´m thinking about printing some of my photos.
A set for Christmas.
What do you think?

And one more thing. Go Martha & Ari!
I´m not saying I agree with everything they say and do.
(Then again, I don´t know anyone I agree everything with)
I love that they dare.

I have two simple rules that I try to live by;
do what you love and be nice to the people you meet.

So I try, real hard, to do what I love.
To do the things that makes me happy, that inspires me and that gives me energy.

My blog is one of those things.

So I thought I give something back, to be nice.
And thats where my idea for December comes in.
I will make my blog a calender for Christmas.
Each day a new gift for you.
One day something to download, another day something handmade and more.
I hope you will join in.

xx Jeanette


...with my blog. Dear Kaspara let me know that after the pictures, my blog was all white.
The weird thing is that it does not show on my computer.
I think I fixed it now and that the commentfelt is back on track.

Thank you all for your nice words on my last post!
You make me smile :)
Yesterday and today is filled with more photos of sweet kids.
I´ll show you later.

Oh...and I have this great idea for December that I will share with you later today.
I can´t wait to tell you!
