2017 has been a different year, and a year of change for me. I started the year with writing for to magazines - Ett trykk and The papercrafting, and beeing on two amazing design teams for scrap book manifacturers - Kaisercraft and LDRS creative, and design team for Norways best craft shop (in my opinion) - Hobbykunst.
Scandinavian Scrapbooker of the year 2016
I was also nominated for Scandinavian Scrapbooker og the year 2016 in March. I don't really like nominations like this, and there are a lot of reasons for that. One of them is that there are a lot of fantastic artists that will never be nominated for things like this. To be honest, this was a difficult nomination, as I was nominated with a few of my close friends. I really wanted my friends to win this. I was very happy to see that Susanne was the winner of this title.
My top 10
Choosing top 10 was difficult, but I have chosen a few different creations. The first half of the year, I was crafting every day, as you really need to work hard, beeing on several design teams. I had several layouts at CHA for Kaisercraft, and a dress and cards at CHA for LDRS creative. I was published i the Kaisercraft magazines a few times over the year. I also had a few craft classes.
The last half year, I have reduced the hours of crafting. There is a lot of personal reasons for this, and I am never really to personal when I write my blogposts or on social media. I have moved from one town to another, changed job and I am now getting settled. This is taking a lot of my time, and this is why I have reduced the number of hours used on crafting. I finished as a designer for Kaisercraft and writing for the magazine Ett trykk. I will still write for the Papercrafting, and design for LDRS creative and Hobbykunst in 2018.
