Hello Kitty fix

Hello Kitty fix

I want to go back to Asia so much. Everyone is planning trips, talking about trips, doing trips – and I, who has a lot of free time, have no money to travel to my hearts content. Ah, how unfair life is, right? Luxuary problem, I know, and not even a problem really. I will […]

This is me collage

This is me collage

This morning I made a collage (oh, what a great feeling) while drinking my coffee. I call it This is me because I see it as a self portrait of me. I made it in my Squared Art journal and took the photo of it as my contribution for Studio Friday today. I only wish […]

Retro style recycled fabric bag

Retro style recycled fabric bag

A first try at a little bag! Ugly lining from moms stash and cool retro fabric that I bought second hand maybe two years ago. It used to be a curtain, now it is not. Now it is a retro style recycled fabric bag! Related PostsSerendipity gloves – to redo a slipover Tutorial: How to […]

Wrist warmers and stamps to mount

Wrist warmers and stamps to mount

I’ve made two more wrist warmers (handledsvδrmare, or pulsvδrmare) combining crocheting and knitting for a warm hand by the computer (my preference) or anywhere else where you don’t want to wear mittens but still want to keep warm and need to use your hands. Drawing outside, writing in your journal when the wind is chilly, […]

I made a book!

I made a book!

My pile of bound paper have been growing at the Bookbinding class, but nothing was evolving to a book. Until now, when I’ve made my first real book, my first masterpiece, a blank note book with drawing papers and a gray cover! I know you will think I made this since I’m posting it like […]

My Crochted Rug is Finished

My Crochted Rug is Finished

Crocheting a rug with torn fabric stripes is the perfect summer project. A bit dusty, somewhat big but a great leisure pursuit on the balcony when the sun is out. I started this project in in place on the backside. I crocheted this with a big sized hook and lots of great colours. Related PostsHang […]

Ribbon Embroidery on lavender bags

Ribbon Embroidery on lavender bags

I’ve been making small lavender bags in white fabric, filling them with dried lavender flowers from my parents garden. When you bring the flowers out, they are still lilac and smells very strong, but put in the bag the smell gets more subtle and it is pure lovely. I’ve been experimenting with how to decorate […]

Enlightened as an Owl

Enlightened as an Owl

This owl collage of a Tawny owl (cat owl in Swedish) is one of my first art in quite a while, and I really like how it turned out. I’m really crazy about creating my own collages right now, that is why I keep making them. And because I learn so much each time I […]

Crazy Mucho Craft inspiration

Crazy Mucho Craft inspiration

This week I haven’t had any time to sit down and write. Or to think, go out to buy food or even relax. It’s all been about craft, creativity and inspiration this week. Crazy intense and so much fun! My wonderful mom had been visiting for five days (yay!) and we’ve been sewing, knitting, crocheting […]

Not on my wall yet

Not on my wall yet

I’ve started to notice other peoples walls lately, and what they hang there – maybe because I do art to hang on the wall myself? Or maybe because see things differently now? I look much closer, and gather ideas on artists that I find interesting and home decoration, in my mind. Sometimes I even have […]
