My Scrapbooking ventures

I have done a lot of different things since I posted last, I just haven’t had the time to post much. I have had work, and I have played a lot of Final Fantasy XIV (still doing : D) but now that summer is coming, and vacation is just around the corner, I thought I should just try to post a few more things here.

First I will try to show some pictures of my adventures in Scrapbooking! I know I posted some about it earlier, but I’ll try to tell and show a little more of it now.

Some of the basic sets I bought later, because even if the book I bought with the first set was good, it was really small, one of these had a medium book, that seemed better for me to use at journaling.

I always just thought scrapbooking looked really boring, and I mostly saw it as making pretty family albums or just more hardcore cards. But I found

I bought a set at Panduro first, with how to books, and all you needed to start, I also got a lot of things beside that, so I think I got broke the first time I started XD

out I could actually do more with it than that, when my little brother’s girlfriend started wanting to make a scrapbook journal. I raided Panduro when I got back home that summer, and got all the journaling stuff I thought looked cool. After that I realized I sadly am not one for journaling. But, on the other side, I like making stories. And what better to give a fairy tale feel with, than fantasy filled scrapbook art?

I already posted some pictures from my original story book idea that I were working on as a gift for my niece. I weren’t able to finish it for christmas because of lots of work, but I will still work on it as time goes, and hopefully it will be finished while she can still enjoy it. Someone also told me it could be a good idea for a children’s book, so who knows?

Other than that I started working on an original short fairy tale story based on my own stories. I even bought a really pretty album with a fairy tale theme, together with the background papers that came along with it. It has everything from dragons, fairy tale quotes, to really fantasy inspired designs, and I know I will get to use most of them in time. I also bought a lot of different design papers at different shops in town, and I feel quite pleased with a lot of the things I have gotten. Stamps with ABCs on them, and different stamp colors. A lot of smaller design papers to use in different ways, and also lots of pretty things to put on to make the designs even more unique.

To be able to do something smaller as well, that I can just really focus on, and then get it done without feeling like I have hundred more things to do with it, as an eventual book would do, I also started a small project. A sort of series with one picture done at a time. It will be a series of unique ideas, all linked together with it being about the characters from my books. So basically each of them gets one verse, and one page to their unique personality and story. So far I have only made one, but I really liked how it ended up.

 

 

 

 

Once upon a early start on gift season

I am usually the sort of person that uses a lot of time during Christmas to get people gifts. I enjoy getting gifts myself, but because I am over 18, I don’t get much from not close family anymore, and most of my friends lives too far away. So my satisfaction, is to give gifts to the people I care about and hope they enjoy it. I think I each year actually tell them to not open any gifts from me before I am standing before them so I can see if they like it. (I am so sorry family XD)

Last year I found out something new and fun to do, and that was to make the gifts. I have a lot of fabric, so I made table runners and decorative stuff to have for christmas. I at least hope people liked it ^-^.

This year I have started on some other projects, which I will not tell of here, since most of the people getting them know me on facebook and will then sort of know what they will get for Christmas. But there is one special gift I am making this year, that will be a challenge at least, and I am quite sure she does not have a facebook yet.

My little brother’s girlfriend started doing scrapbooking during the summer, and when I got back to Bergen, I might have raided Panduro, and then Nille…. and then hobbykjellern… and then more Panduros, and then all the Nilles…. So now, I have a really big collection of various paper and stuff to make scrapbooks. I then found a really nice album, and ordered a pretty one with lots of fairy tale papers from America.

So, since I love fairy tales, I decided to try and make a original fairy tale book, with scrapbooking and soft pastell colors on black, for my youngest niece, and about my youngest niece.

So far I have just done a little, but I hope I can get it done for Christmas ^.^

What I am doing now?

Well, I am still just doing all I can to have fun when I should really just be reading japanese grammar each passing second -.-

I don’t know if I mentioned it earlier, but I fell and hit my knee… T.T It was owie… I would share a picture with you, but I am not evil -.- I had to spend almost a entire week home because my knee burned, and my other foot was not good to walk on.

But i am better now, and doing stupid things again ^.^

I am working harder on my japanese now, since I have applied for a japanese University for the next two semesters. But I didn’t get my first choice so I am a little nervous, since Hokkaido that I came into the line for, has the classes in japanese… But I really hope I can go! Together with my roommate!

But it all is a little scarier now, and the day I got the call that I was in line for Hokkaido was the same day that the earthquake and tsunami hit… It has all seemed a little dark after that, and I hope it will go well for Japan, and the ones in my class that was supposed to leave this month and the next but are not allowed.

——————————————————————-

I also bought a keyboard for my iPad! It is really useful! But now I have the problem that when I start to write on my computer I always push my finger at the screen afterward and hope it will work XD I have the manuscript on this, and I have started a whole new story to write on the iPad! It is a story set in a small town in a mordern world, but the backdrop of it is old fairy tales with some extreme dark twists! (I mean it… my hanzel and Grethel didn’t seem that bad until I wrote down for my friend what just happened O.o…)

The story starts off as the town of Noelle suddenly one day dissapears. For one entire day the whole town and the people that lived there were gone. The next day the town is back, and also most of the people living in it. But some are gone, and the lives of the ones that returned will never again be the same. No one remembers what happened, and the town itself suddenly looked like it had been gone for a lot more time than one day. And all around the town, blood red roses grows trough the cold snow.

So far I have three chapters, and the first one starts off around 4-6 years later, as most of the people have gone back to their own lives. First chapter is just a little start off, and the main characters are introduced.

Second chapter is Hanzel and Grethel, and the third is little red riding hood. I have also plans of having Sleeping beauty, and I want a Bluebeard version where Bluebeard wins in the end XD (Or sort of XD) I will also use other fairytales as I go, and if there is any good ideas out there I want to know! Please tell me your favorite fairy tale! Just be warned that I am a sick sick person and it might be turned darker than your wildest imagination XD

Other than that… WAI!!!!!!!!! The trailer for the DVD release of Marchen has come!! WA!!! I want it so much and I want it now!!!

Oh God I will die laughing off the scene where Jimang is dressed up as a woman XD There is just something about that image that is priceless ^-^

But when the movie is done in the 3d theaters in Japan and finally is released, I will buy it! And I will post about it! ^-^

——————-spoilers for Kuroshitsuji manga beyond here!——————————

And the last I want to write about now… OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

I just read chapter 55 of Kuroshitsuji, that just came out, and if it wasn’t awsome enough with Ronald, Lizzie’s family, Snake and a Titanic like ship with zombie and Undertaker on, guess what just jumped on from a iceberg!

*Tries to find words to express the awsome that just made Anki’s head implode on itself*

Wah!! Grell is back!! And the real one this time!! Not the comic relief Grell clone that the anime made us look forward to!! I have a reason to live again!! (Other than waiting for the Grell and Will OVA… if it hasn’t come out yet…?) What I am looking forward to now is to see Grell being awsome! I am already happily suprised to see that Ronald as not as stupid as he seemed in the anime, this Ronald is awsome! And he kicks zombie butts like there is no tomorrow! And he has extra weapons! And he can mock Sebastian too!

I’m so happy now T.T

And I don’t own any of the scans here, they are scanlated over at the Bleach Asylum I think, go there and download if you want to read it all ^.^

And I am looking forward to see how all will go, how Grell and Ronald interact, and also how Sebastian and Ciel will take it if they do meet Grell again XD But since Lizzie is there it might go a little like the anime and they agree to work together since Ciel would work with anyone if he could protect Lizzie ^.^

Well… school tomorrow, and long post is long XP
