Mother and celebrating Midsummer

Craaaazy times over here! spending long hours at work and hardly none by the computer. Creating is at temporary standstill because of my working hours.

Tomorrow is Midsummer over here, for many it marks the start of the summer holidays. I have another two weeks to go before it's time for sandals and shorts. Practicing wiggling my shoeless toes every morning when I have my coffee out on the balcony - bliss!

Aaanyhow, thought I'd share the first page ever that I had published in the April/May issue of Scrap365 Magzine. It was created back in the early days of January so I had almost forgotten it.

Here's "Mor" or Mother as it translates into English. It's my MIL in the photo.
