Hey. My name is Trine Hansen and welcome to my corner of the internet. I started this blog in Januar 2013 to share my creativity and inspire others. I write about bullet journaling, DIY and crafts, recipes, home decor and more.
I am a Norwegian girl in my mid twenties. Growing up I had a very international childhood. I have lived Norway, Dubai, England, Belgium and Singapore. I lived between 4 months and 4 years in each country – not including Norway. When I was 18 I moved from my family, who at the time lived in Singapore, and half way across the world to my hometown. I lived there for a year while attending teaching school, not for me so I quit. I then moved to a different city and did a one-year-college (its a thing in norway called Folkehøgskole) and studied sewing / fashion. It was incredible fun and it really let me work my creativity. I moved back to my hometown and started living with my sister. We also got a dog together, our cute Cosmo, a Bichon Havanese. A year and a half later I started this blog.
I cannot believe to changes I have been through since I stared this blog. I have moved, twice. Summer of 2016 my older sister and I moved into this beautiful house that we (and the bank) own.
Since moving I have been job-less and trying to make a living from my work online. In addition to this blog I have my own web and graphic design site, I have an online store called Lilla Lavendel (translates to purple lavender), where I sew products that I sell online, and I make video tutorials at SkillShare.
This blog is very important to me. During the time I have had it I have gone through times where I have not posted anything for months at a time, but I always come back. When I take a break from blogging, I miss it. A lot. This blog has become a part of me and I have put so much of myself into it. Therefore I want to thank you. Thank you for wanting to know more about me and my blog.
