How to cover an old ring binder with beautiful, vintage fabric [Video Tutorial]

I have a couple of older office ring binders in a smaller size (A5) that I wanted to start using. They’re the regular kind of binder type that has been used in offices and schools for the past 50 years or so in Sweden. Black cover, cloth spine in red, green or brown with a […]

Dear Photo Diary | Newness in the air

The month of May has been divided into two very intense parts: beautiful weather that draws me outdoors, away from the computer and blogging, and heavy computer work time that also has drawn me away from social media and writing blog posts. But today I (almost) finished one of my articles, and while the sun […]

I’m glad I didn’t decide to blog every day this month, because this week I’ve been under a rock of work, so much so my own creativity has suffered and this blog was left alone for most of the time. All I managed, except making layouts for a magazine I work for, was sending out […]

In summer, when ever the weather is good enough to bringing tools and materials outside, I bring tools and materials outside. I love being outdoor, and when I can I bring […]

Kawaii Art Journal

Kawaii Art Journal

I think a pretty journal or notebook cover is important, because it makes you use the book even more. When you want to look at it from the outside, you also want to open it up and work in it! Right? You remember the Japanese word for cute, right? Kawaii! It was such a popular […]

The Jardin Lime Art Journal

Time to dive back into the pile of fabric that was the foundation for the Campervan bowling bag and the Owl tote (both x 2 because it was a collaboration with my mom, and we now have matching sets of bags and totes)! This is my last planned post about this particular pile of fabric […]

Handmade Campervan Bowling Bags

Even better than collecting fabric in transparent boxes is using that fabric to create everyday objects. In that way you get to see a lot more of the fabric’s pattern, right? That’s why I wanted a sturdy, usable bag from the Campervans fabric, a curtain fabric that is just perfect for bag making. This one […]
