Celebrating spring Giveaway

Sorry, the giveaway is now closed!

We have been blessed with a fantastic weather this week. It’s still a bit on the chilly side, but the skies are blue and the sun is out. I have been on baby-duty for a couple of nights, totally voluntarily and lovely grandma/baby-bonding-time, but being a 50-something and all, I honestly preferred to take a nap today rather than anything else including creative playtime.

In the spirit of this fabulous week and having received the first batch of my book, Gledesspredere, it is time to host a celebratory giveaway, and the prize is a signed copy of this fabulous book. It is still in Norwegian, but I’ll ship anywhere.

To enter the giveaway you’ll just need to leave a comment on this post before closing time on Monday April 9th in the evening, Norwegian time when I’ll draw the lucky winner.

I have picked a few appropriate spring like projects from the book to share; all photos by Ragnar Hartvig – enjoy!

“Vår” (Spring)



“Morgenfugl i blomsterenga” (Early bird in the flower meadow)


“Herregårdshage” (Formal garden)


“Sol, bare sol” (Sun, just sun)

“Alle fugler” (All the birds)



“Flere fugler” (More birds)


“Georg”

“Blomsterbud” (Flower delivery)

A few copies of the book are available here as of today, so let me know if you’d like to order one. I will sign it if you want. The going rate is NOK 279 + shipping and handling (I know, books are quite expensive here), prepaid through PayPal (international orders). I won’t be shipping anything out until after Easter anyway, so you can still take part in the giveaway.

Happy spring and good luck to you all!
