makeover

I decided to spice up the old blog, you like? Still have a little tweaking to do to make it perfect. If there were only enough hours in the day :)

It rained here today, so I spent my day indoors, I turned Otis from sad dog, to happy dog. Well..kinda. He looks slightly scary.

 

  

I'm finishing up a few more pet portraits before I am off to bed. Cupcake needs his medicine, pain killers, and eye drops every few hours so I am waiting to give him the last one before we go to bed. He is such a brave little man.

  
(this is from last year when he had an ulcer)

 


My nephews 1st birthday is coming up, and as much as I would love to knit something, I just don't think I will have the time! It's really sad to say, but since it's been over a year since last time I went home to Norway, I have yet to meet my brothers baby.  It makes me really sad, and also really hard to figure out what to get a cute little Norwegian boy. Any ideas?

I would love to go back home this summer, I haven't been in Norway during the summer since '07 I think. Summer there is the most beautiful ever. It's so magical!




 

Magical, right? <3

I promise I'll show some cute new stuff I've been working on soon :)
I am off to bed!
night, night.

xoxo.

i agree, very magical!
i hear ya about missing family, I didn't get to meet my first nephew until he was 5. I hated missing that time, but luckily he was too young to remember, so he only knows how much i'm around now. lol but i know how you feel, its tough! im sorry! :(

Ja han maler masse og er blitt helt hekta på å bruke akvarellmaling. Han har den dr.martens-malingen han også, men usikker på hva han bruker for øyeblikket, han har mange typer og merker med maling. Du er tatovør og, var det ikke så? Husker ikke om jeg leste det på din blogg eller på Christine sin blogg? Kjæresten min er også tatovør, kjekt å bo sammen med en kreativ sjel :)

Totally loving the new look! Aww Otis, cuuute! Aww & loving your photography as well. As for any ideas for your cute little Norwegian boy nephew, The Land of Nod has really cute stuff. Good luck! I've never been to Norway but I have been to Sweden & they are beautiful indeed! My husband's from Sweden & so we travel there about every two years. Something totally different than on this side of the world (I'm from California). Take care Silje!
