If you send enough nagging thoughts out there, the universe will eventually listen…that’s right, we got snow!
Unfortunately, when I got up Sunday morning with big plans of building a snow dog in the yard, most of the snow had already disappeared…and now it’s raining like mad and there’s a flood warning. Aah, such is life in the Northwest. At least we had the perfect backdrop for putting up our tree :)
As for the second huzzah…on Saturday we opened Scrappedugnad, the first Norwegian challenge blog! The blog was originally the brainchild of Christine and Mari, and then they gave Ania and me an offer we couldn’t refuse! ;) We needed a good Norwegian name for the blog, so I jokingly suggested dugnad. The name stuck and it ended up being the perfect fit for a challenge blog; it was voted the Norwegian national word and means voluntary communal work :D
Our first guest challenger is Kerry Lynn Yeary, an amazing scrapbooker the four of us got to meet in Stavanger at Papirfest. Here’s my take on her challenge:
I melted the sides of the transparency so it curled up (you can’t really see it here; I had to take this photo after dark) – originally I had made a Christmas bow from the Hambly but it was humongous and caught fire when I tried to melt the edges (lol), so I had to go with something simple instead.
