WELCOME TO SCHIMJOLIE & Le Petite Country Shop – Studio & Gallery

It has been a long time since last blog post, and it’s not because nothing has happened 😉 Too much has happened, but I will not go on about that now!

I would like to tell you about my day to-day! I’m sooooo excited!

I have cleared out the garage at Strai and me and Svein Eriks new «baby» SchimJolie LifeStyleConcept is about to open a place for the public!

I can’t wait. And with our tempo it’s no reason to wait! I think next week we are up and running! WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!

Everyone is welcome to see us and the Ltd #artscarf collection!

I might also take up my commercial photography and do some children and family portraits if anybody is interested?

Next to SchimJolie – Petite Country Shop I already have the most amazing flower and garden outlet «Drømmehaven» run by the sweetest and so friendly Kristin. She came with coffee to me as I was way down in all the crap and rubbish stored over many years in these three garages we cleared today!

Tomorrow I will paint the joint and then I will start decorating! Come and visit if you have the chance. I’ll bring the coffee machine tomorrow and there is always time for a chat!

The place will not be perfect at first but, but I need to get going and to get started, so I don’t worry, we’ll work it out as we move!

Life is too short to care about trifles :-) JUST DO IT!

So see you at Strai and at SchimJolie – Petite Country Shop – Studio & Gallery!

WELCOME – BIENVENUE – 歓迎

It’s only 10min by car from the center! Just saying!

Here are som photos of today’s progress :-)

PLUMJAM PRODUCTION

SchimJolie Farmerstyle PlumJam
SchimJolie Farmerstyle PlumJam – with hint of vanilla and cinnamon

Yesterday we spent time on grandmas farm again and we came home with a large bag of plums!

For the first time in my life I have made jam….. it wasn’t rocket science, It was more like a test of your patience….well, the most time-consuming job was to remove the stones out of 2-3 kilo plumes, but with that done I just put some water, not much, into the pan and poured 1 deciliter sugar in as well.

I also found a couple of cinnamon sticks and one vanilla bean I threw in!

After, I read on the pack, that the sugar is supposed to be added after the plums have boiled. But I don’t worry about that! I’ll do it that way next time, hihi!!  It also said I needed to add a whole kilo of sugar! No way!

I added the «Jam-Pack», to make the jam more firm, like it said on the pack and then I added 1 deciliter more sugar – in my taste and health opinion, more than enough!

«you don’t always have to follow the recipe – whether it is in life or cooking, it is always allowed to think for your self and do your own experiences, that’s how you learn and evolve» – Ingrid Himberg 2013

Here are some photos from my little jam workshop, hihi, all dressed up in a SchimJolie

ONE YEAR

«At the end of the day, what you will regret in life is the things you never tried because you were too busy doing what you always have done»

Exactly one year has passed!

August 25th 2012 we packed down our house, packed up our car and set the GPS to take us to Antibes in France!

Here is my blogpost I WONDER WHY from August 25th 2012

So much has happened during this year! I honestly think I have learned more this year than I have in my whole entire life.

Taking the step, breaking out from what’s safe and follow your dream takes some courage and have more consequences than one can imagine!

All in all it has led me on a path I would never have found if I had not done what I did!

In my experience, if you have trouble finding a way, you have to make one!

Here are some nice flowers I have met on my way while making my way! Enjoy <3
