The veranda is the place to be

The veranda is the place to be

When I sit down by the computer to write I think about craft and art. I think about sewing, embroidery, how to make little polymer clay flowers that I’ve sketched, painting on fabric, taking photos of pillows I’ve finished, drawing princesses in my Art Journal or something else I want to try right now. Then, […]

Fun Adventures in the Kitchen

Fun Adventures in the Kitchen

I’ve been wanting to make miniature gingerbread houses for more than a year now, but last Christmas we went to fjällen and no houses got created around here. But then this year my sweet cousin wanted to make houses too, so we hooked up and made a couple (nine!) together. I think this was one […]

Saint Lucia and saffron buns

Lucia is celebrated in Sweden on December 13th every year. Lucia is presented as a woman (or a girl) with long hair in a white plain […]

No dinner tonight

No dinner tonight

I don’t feel like making dinner, so this is what I’ll have tonight in front of the telly. Painting some brown wood frames in a new colour. Eating a cookie. Having a cup of tea. Looking at the moving pictures at the TV, waiting for the sun to set so I can enjoy the candles […]

Christmas and New Years eve has come and gone. I feel relieved, now life can go back to normal again. And a whole new year ahead… anything can happen! Isn’t that exiting? And nobody knows what it might be… laying there around the corner waiting for us to go get it, grab it and haul […]

Christmas coming up…

Christmas coming up…

Christmas is coming up around here, and you can really tell. Mom’s cookbook is out and it has lots of goodies inside. A craft-piece by itself. Leave me with a knife, and I go nuts… Cooking chocolate toffee, one of my favorites! Just cream, sugar and chocolate! Mmm! Glazing some gingerbread cookies with blue, white […]

Spinach soup in UmeŚ

Spinach soup in UmeŚ

Instead of crafting tonight I’ve been stuck by the computer, bidding on online flea markets and browsing old photos for my first flickr group UmeŚ where you can see how beautiful it is where I live. Please join if you have photos that would fit there. While browsing photos on the computer I uploaded some […]
