For this post I decided to sum up the weekend, by continuing my “Alphabetical memory letter”-work. Check the first post here
—> Alphabetical memories
Spent the weekend runnin errands, traveling to Gothenburg, meeting new and old friends, having some drinks and eating at McDonalds one too many times.

It’s after christmas now, that means that I finally can share one of the longest and sneakiest christmas project I’ve done so far. 2,5 months of dealing with white lies, borrowing scanning equipment and hours retouching, noise, scratch and damage removal from almost 100 diapositives or in other words slides. Designing and developing you name it, I’ve done it!
It started with my Auntie talking about all the slides they had in the basement, we brought some up and her husband started talking about the pictures, looking at them trough the projector on a white sheet that was hung over the bookcase. I saw some funny pictures of dad, think he was about my age, and asked if I could borrow some of the pictures, so I could “show dad”. Little by little I started “borrowing” more slides, scanning them, give them back.
So here we go, let me present a mix of the pictures that got printed in the book, before and after, work in progress during the time and much more.
Work in progressOther random stuff, My Aunt and my dad xDFinal book!

I’d like to thank the people who lent me equipment and lending me a last minute hand removing some dust particles when my hand cramped up haha, you know who you are! So If you have any old photos you want restored, give me a call and I’ll give it a try!
So as some of you might have noticed I went to Kongsberg, Norway, to work and to meet some old friends of the family. The work at the Restaurant was a sweet experience and the scenery was super! Amazing new friends, long crazy hours at work, couple of drinks and tons of laughters. Can’t wait to visit Norway again!
Here’s some pictures of Kongsberg outside work, for starters.
