Thrifted at an Outdoor Flea Market

Thrifted at an Outdoor Flea Market

My friend Maria is a much quicker blogger than me. Last weekend we went to an outdoor flea market at Umeåker. She wrote about her finds last week, and now it’s my turn too. The flea market came with crowds (lots of people everywhere!) and great summery sunshine. A really a great day for thrifting […]

Gifts and inspiration

Gifts and inspiration

Around Easter this year my friend Christina became 30 years old. I gave her a big package with lots of things inside. Handmade stuff too, like the crocheted scarf and the third pointy kitty I’ve made (the first one was for me and the second one was a present too). This softie kitty was blue, […]

So finally I took the sewing machine out again, and made a fabric basket […]

Art Doll Emelie with an ironed on face

At Easter I printed some different faces on fabric (my parents has a great printer) to use for my art dolls. But the art dolls turned to be totally different than the previous ones… This is Emelie, she doesn’t really have an iron face, right? I think she looks very happy and sweet. Like candy! […]

Book of dreams – pockets

Book of dreams – pockets

Smilla, my cat, is not really helping with the crafting. She is distracting me with her cute look. She wants to play… On this picture she is trying to lick and/or steal the yellow feather that I stuck into a pocket in my new altered book! I’ve been wanting to alter a book for over […]
