Hakuna Matata!



~ Hakuna Matata
swahili for «Det er ingen bekymringer» eller «Det er intet problem»
🎵 Løvenes Konge forklarer det hele i sang! 🎵
 
Tags er kjappe å lage, og kan brukes både som pynt, gavelapper, prøve ut nye teknikker på, element i journaling eller som jeg bruker denne ~ bokmerke i en Doctor Who bok :)

I fjor begyndte jeg å abbonnere på Hero Arts sine månedlige kits, og det første jeg fikk i mai, var et nydelig havfrue kit. Dette Afrika/Safari temaet kom i juni, og jeg syntest begge var så utrolig flotte, at selv om jeg først hadde tenkt å bare kjøpe to kits, så fortsatte jeg å abbonnere ~ og jeg har ikke angret på den avgjørelsen! Du vet ikke hva du får på forhånd så det er som å gi en overraskelses gave til deg selv ♥
 
 MMH June 2017 Safari kit

For oss som bor i Norge er prisen overkommelig i og med at den inkludert porto ligger akkurat under tollgrensa (350,-). Enkelte mnd. har den såvidt bikket over tollgrensa, alt etter valutakurser og sånne svingninger, så det er en sjanse å ta ~ har bare fått fortollingsgebyr/moms gebyrer lagt på i tillegg to ganger. Og den ene gangen var fordi jeg kjøpte et ekstra stempel (kjempefine 'addons' hver mnd. med samme tema). Den andre gangen var det sånn 15 kr over grensa, litt kjipt da å måtte ut med 25% + fortollingsgebyret som jeg tror var på 130,- da. Men den den risikoen er verdt å ta syns jeg, når innholdet egentlig er verdt det dobbelte, og av og til tre-dobbelt av det man betaler i mnd. :)


Hakuna matata ~ a Swahili phrase meaning 
"no worries" or "there are no troubles"
🎵 the Lion King explains it in a song 🎵

Tags are quick to create & great for many things. This is currently beeing used as a bookmark in a Doctor Who novel ♥ 

Last year I started to subscribe on the My Monthly Hero Arts kits, and the first kit I got was the beautiful mermaid themed one in may. This Africa/Safari themed kit came out in June, and although I had initially planned on just getting a couple kits, I was so happy with them both that I continued my subscription! 
Each and every kit since then has been so versatile, full of goodies and the designs always gorgeous, a surprise gift to yourself each month ♥

Theese kits do sell out super fast. So if you are not a subscriber you might miss out as they do not make more of them, and because of that I do not know if I will ever be able to quit subscribing.. but why would I really? I'm addicted.. ;)
