~*Double slider pocket*~

Hai! I have been busy studying for my test on rocks and minerals and have therefore neglected the blog for a while… Tomorrow is TEST_DAY!!! Dun, dun DUUUN! However I’ve found some time to make a double slider pocket which at the moment is my favourite type of birthday card to give away. It is super easy to make and looks rather advanced C: I have not made a video of how to do this, but there are several good tutorials on Youtube ūüėÄ

I’d also like to say that last week I was on a Geology excursion where we looked at different types of rocks and minerals in our nearby area and we found Graptolite fossils! Which I think is pretty cool. And here’s a picture of one of mine :B Untitled

And this just turned into a long entry with several pictures :B In other ‘news’ My friends and I had a Taco-evening last week and for dessert my friend, Malin, had made OWL CUPCAKES!!! They were SO cute and so DELICIOUS. Om, nom nom! cuppycake owls

And to end this blog entry I’ll ad a drawing I made on Saturday. It is ‘Hel’ the Death God of Norse Mythology. I’ve become more and more fascinated with the old Norse belief and it is actually rather interesting.

Today’s entry might have been a little bit random…

Never thought I’d work out on a Saturday…

Woke up with no energy, but I had set my mind to ‘work out mode’ before I went to bed last night and thus my day started with a 13 km (almost) run, at about ¬†6:46 min/km.

running

It might not be super fast, but I am very happy with it as I have not worked out for…well at least 3 months. It was great! My legs did not feel like my own at the end. I was super angry half of the time. I kept getting cobwebs stuck to my face(I was running in the forest) and my shoes were soaked in mud and water after three km or something. It was worth it though because now I feel very relaxed. We’ll see if I’ll be able to keep this up…most likely my next run will be a decade from now :/ At least I have a good¬†conscience today. Don’t worry, this will not turn into a health blog.¬†

 Just had a lovely breakfast smoothie:

~How to make your mornings a little more magical~

To make a morning magical listen to the soundtrack “Harry’s Wondrous World”,”Aunt Marge’s Waltz”, “Fawkes the Phoenix”, “Fawkes is Reborn” or just about any other soundtrack from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit or Ms. Potter, while drinking a cup of tea and reading a couple pages in your book of choice.
