The county Council where I grew up has announced a photo-contest. The theme is natur and you can win money. 1st place 1000 NOK. 2nd place 500 NOK. Not a huge amount of money, but still… it’s some. The only rule is that the picture has to be taken within the counties border.

You can send in up to 5 pictures. Due date is 5th of June. The winner will be published in a magazine the County Council gives out. The county Council can use the winner picture to whatever they want in the future though… that’s the only downside, but hey – you win some, you lose some.

So, I’m gonna enter this contest. I don’t have any expectation of winning, but you never know.

Two years ago I entered a photo-contest in a national newspaper, Aftenposten. I didn’t win, but I got one picture in the newspaper and one in their online site :) I cut out the piece in the paper and it’s on my board in the hall. thihi.

I also saw another photo-contest at I wanted to enter, but I was too late. Bah!

I’ll post the pics I will be sending in later when i’ve decided which ones. I have already one in my mind and the rest I think I have to shoot first :) Let’s hope the good weather stays until the weekend comes. I’ll be heading home tomorrow or saturday, so I’ll have sunday to go shoot.

Yay for sunny sundays with camera.

Another birthday card :)

This is the latest birthday card I’ve made. I sent it to a friend of min, Hedvig, that turned 30 on the 30th of March. cardhedvig.jpgI was of course a little late sending the card, but hey – at least she got it.

All the stuff I used on this card was bought in   Sweden when I was there during Easter. In Charlottenberg they have this big mall and I went to Panduro (a hobby store). They had some scrapbooking things and I just had to buy some stuff.

I like the card. It’s spring-ish with the green background and the light colors. It suits a birthday at the end of March :)

Next card I’m gonna make is for my friend Bjørg. Her birthday is at the end of this month. I don’t remember the exact day to be honest – I think it’s the 30th actually. I have to look it up later.

I still haven’t bought anything from website I told about ( They have so many things and I don’t know what I want right now. I could use a little bit of everything actually. hehe. The thing is that it is so many different colors that I think I might need to go in one direction color-wise. Maybe earthy colors or pastels… I dunno.

I think I have to go see that store – not online, but the actual store. Not sure when that will be. It’s only open until 17.00 on weekdays except thursdays when they’re open until 19.00. I could go a saturday but I’m busy this saturday and next. I’m busy next thursday too I think.  Oh well… I’m not that desperate. I can wait!
