Why I scrap…

Some people might think it’s silly to use 20-50$ to display a 1$ photo. To me it’s art.
I don’t have very much money, but I still love to shop new stuff to feed my scrapbooking needs. It’s the kind of thing that you search and search for the perfect paper for that photo from your last birthday. When it’s Found you almost get high.

Almost half the deal about scrapbooking is the social part. My Mum and I love to attending different scrapbooking crops. It’s great meeting other scrappers, being inspired and maybe try to win prizes;-).
Of course forums are a great way to be inspired or meet new people too;-).

But… For me the biggest part about scrapbooking is the terapy. You almost get into a meditative State. It is nearly impossible to keep being sad or stressed after an hour or two of scrapbooking. Actually -that was why I started in the first place:-).
With that being said, it is possible to sometimes loose your mojo. When that happens to me, I usually surf different onlinescrapbooking shops. That way I get inspired to want to make something. Maybe I don’t make anything, but I would want to. Surfing different online shops also work in another way for me… Since I don’t have very much money, just surfing the shops is a kind of shopping. I should tell you – scrapbooking in Denmark is very expensive!

But I keep on scrapping. After all making my own creative photo memories is still a lot cheaper than a Professional therapist;-).

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

” dum da dum da dum da dum da dum”. No, I can’ whistle;-).

But really. It is quite important always to remember that.
The story has two sides, some would even say three. There is your side, his/her side and the right side. I will like to rename them. There is the side you can see, and the one you refuse to see.

I know, that was only two;-). But that’s you need;-).
Everytime you feel blue, try to see the positive of it. The more you think about it, the more you will believe it;-).

Try. Just once. You will see it helps;-).

‘Till next time, take care:-)

Hi, my name is Maja and I’m a perfectionist!

Perfectionism… As already mentioned in the titel I see myself as a perfectionist. It has always been a hurdle for me -nothing I did was ever god enough.
Sometimes I still feel it that way but not as bad as before;-). Maybe that’s why it has been so difficult for me to keep LochLoco up and running while I wasn’t feeling so good.

Why do people become perfectionists? Why is it we just can not accept that we can be proud of everything we do?
The scrapbook guru Tim holz have said it the best way possible: “Imperfect is perfect!” Of course that is said in the scrapbooking world, but maybe we could use it in out everyday life?

Today I will embrace imerfectionism. Will you?
Are you a perfectionist?

End of hiatus!

It’s been a while. I know. But I’m happy to be back :-) .
The last year, I felt worse and worse and finally I had to pull out the plug both from work and School and all social media. I isolated myself from everything, not in the literally meaning, but almost. I haven’t been to school, or work in two years. Sometimes I missed all of it but if I tried to come back, I could feel I wasn’t ready yet.

Now I am:-D! Ready to get started on LochLoco again, to get everything up to date, to blog again, to visit wonderful blogs and their people and to be ME!
The main language on LochLoco has always been Danish, but I realised it was time to go “international” ;-) . I don’t know if some of my pages will still be in Danish only, but I’ll let you know of cause ;-) .
Something I have to learn is, that LochLoco is MY blog and I can write what I want. It is totally ok, if I just want to ramble; it is also ok if I want to talk about our Prime minister and her Barack Obama selfie. I wouldn’t write about the latter, since it happened a while ago ;-) .

But I have a lot in mind for LochLoco. I can’t wait to be a part of Blogland again :-) . I can’t promise I will post several times a week but I’ll try to post once a week in  the beginning. After I feel comfortable writing again, I’ll post more ;-)

For now, I’ll will just leave LochLoco to a fresh start.
‘Till next time take Care everyone ;-)

Glædelig jul!

Vil gerne ønske alle en rigtig glædelig jul :-) ! Må jeres aften blive fyldt med glæde og kærlighed sammen med dem I holder af ;-) .

Water marble

Længe har jeg haft lysten til at prøve, at lave en water marble manicure. Jeg har prøvet to gange før, hvor det bestemt ikke blev et godt resultat. Men nu skulle det være -og det blev det :-) !

Nej, den er måske ikke perfekt, men af et tredje forsøg, og oven i købet et førsteforsøg, hvor alle neglene fik en tur, synes jeg det blev fint ;-) .
Det skal helt sikkert prøves igen på et tidspunkt, men venter lidt til Hercules er blevet lidt mere rolig, da det jo tager lidt tid ;-) .


Synes I skulle se begge hænder, højre hånd blev ikke ligeså god som venstre.
Farver brugt (og ja, nu kommer vi til de manicurer, der er blevet noteret i notesbogen :-) ):
Basisfarven er Essie Sand Tropez (to lag)
ColoRama 110 Urban Coral
Gosh 002 Misty Mauve
Gosh 584 Deep Purple.

Beklager den manglende rengøring, ved ikke hvorfor jeg ikke gjorde det, inden jeg tog billederne. Tror ikke man kan se det på billederne men især lillefingrene blev ikke helt dækket af marmoreringen, så havde ikke manicuren på så længe.

Har I prøvet Water Marble?

Kan I holde jer muntre i Blogland :-?
Jeg takker for alle kommentarer, de varmer mit hjerte.

Mat effekt

Ved godt, jeg siger, jeg ikke kan bruge striber, men man har et standpunkt, til man tager et nyt ;-) . Denne manicure var lidt af et forsøg. Har set flere steder, hvor fedt det kan se ud, når man bruger den matte toplak som en del af designet.

Og det prøvede jeg altså her.
Basisfarven var et impulskøb, og er Gosh 584 Deep Purple. Derefter tegnede jeg en tyk lodret streg ned ad neglepladen med Depends matte toplak, og indrammede den matte stribe med den brune farve med en smule glittereffekt (nej, notesbogen er på det tidspunkt hvor manicuren blev lagt, stadig ikke taget i brug. Og jeg kan simpelthen ikke finde en brun farve med glittereffekt nogen steder herhjemme, så jeg kan ikke gætte mig til det :-( . Det samme gælder for prikkerne.), og lavede prikker i en anden brun nuance.

Nu varer det forhåbentlig ikke så længe, før jeg kommer frem til de manicurer, hvor der er taget notater ;-) . Tager I også notater når I eksperimenterer, eller lægger manicurer?

Kan I holde jer muntre i Blogland?
Jeg takker for alle kommentarer, de varmer mit hjerte!

Prikker, Prikker, Prikker

“Fordi striber ikke rigtig gør noget godt for min krop ;-) !”

Endnu en manicure med prikker ;-) . Sagde jo, jeg elsker dem ;-) :-p. Der er tre forskellige farver prikker, men det er svært at se på billedet :-( .
Det var meningen, prikkerne skulle blive mindre og mindre, jo længere ned mod neglebåndet de kom, men det lykkedes ikke på alle fingre ;-) . Synes de blev fine alligevel :-) .
Basislak: Depend nr. 316
Prikker:
The Color Workshop French White
Og de farver jeg er knap så sikre på i prikkerne:
Depend nr. 054 og nr. 228

Bliver man nogensinde træt af prikker på neglene?

Jeg takker for alle kommentarer, de varmer mit hjerte!
