I’m alive! I survived the exams and finally got to go home for Christmas!
The last couple of days have been so hectic, trying to fit more hours into the day than there is, just to be able to spend time with all the people I want to see! I’ve been upside down in gift wrapping and planning for stuff to do before I go back to Edinburgh in January, and the days just fly by.
After spending almost the entire day shopping for gifts today with lovely Elisabeth, there was finally time for a little creative project!
I’ve wanted to make some tree ornaments that would be both easy and decorative and finally decided to make something with silk ribbons and beads attached to styrofoam. Think my first try turned out pretty good! (And yes, I know I look really dragged and bum-ish on the picture, but hey, a day of shopping in a snow storm will do that to you!)
Love to be home and finally get that Christmas spirit I’ve been waiting for, with a home filled with Santa’s and angels and homemade cookies and tons of snow! I really needed this now. I’ll spend my holiday at home charging my batteries for a new year and a new me. It is time for some changes, which will be a good thing (I hope). I’ve planned at least one shoot this Christmas, with Sunniva, which means more posts and less old pictures to fill up the space, so stay tuned!

Got a Christmas gift calendar in the mail yesterday from my parents back in Norway! I always feel like a little girl again when Christmas is around the corner and I get my calendar, don’t think I’ll ever grow too old for this!
The exams are coming up; I’m stressed out and find myself struggling to balance my time right. Can’t wait to go back home for Christmas and see my friends and family again! Just three weeks now, but also three exams before that as well…
Went and bought myself a miniature Christmas tree for my room, just to get a hint of that Christmas spirit! Such a cute little tree, it makes me happy just to look at it. It is finally getting colder here, even though the nature still looks a lot like autumn would look in Norway. Would be awesome with a bit of snow, crossing my fingers*.
