Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you get a wonderful holiday with lots of relaxing crafting and nice food. I know I will. I’ll be back after the holidays with some pictures of Christmas gift projects I haven’t been able to show you. Perhaps I might be able to throw in a picture or two of my Lucia buns over Christmas, we’ll see!

Best wishes for 2012 to all of you!

Pimping your door for Christmas

I made a wreath for our door this Christmas. Just a simple design, steel wire wrapped in some left over scraps of red material, some holly leaves in felt, a couple of beads and a button for berries. I quite enjoyed myself making this one and it was truly a quick project.

I’ve just gotten well again after a very long period of colds and have finally started to feel like it’s almost Christmas. Tomorrow I’ll be baking gingerbread cookies with a friend and I’m so looking forward to it. We’ll do the icing and everything! Next week I’ll bake Swedish traditional Christmas/Lucia buns and if I remember snapping a photo before they all get eaten I’ll post about them.

On my desk


This has been on my desk for a long time now. Three colds in a row and a temp job kind of stopped me from getting any further. I’m hoping for a better craft start to 2012. I got some things from the last few days to show you though so keep popping by!
