1a advent

Idag är det 1a advent!
Och jag har köpt min första alldeles egna julgran idag! Eller ja, sambons gran med såklart! :)

Och jag har plockat fram de fantastiskt vackra julgranskulor jag ärvt av min farfars mor.. de kostade 7.25kr när det begav sig :)

Jag har inte vågat använda dom förat de har så stort nostalgiskt värde.. men i förrådet i en kartong gör de ju ingen glad! Jag har förstärkt upphägningen med ståltråd och hoppas att det håller!

Stämningen gör sig inte riktigt rättvisa med blixt..

Mysigt va? :)

Nu ska jag gå och bädda ner mig igen bland mina nya filtar och kuddar!


Vintage inspired jewelry

It was a loong time ago since i showed some necklaces or other bead-projects of mine!
I've been making a lot to the fair I will be attending in december, and some for my favourite store here in Falun :)
I will tell you more when everything is properly arranged! *happy*

A medium long necklace in brown, nougat and turqoise glass beads, copperplated chain, and acrylic cat!
This one is actually already sold! But I will make one more thats similar, but not exactly alike.

Old blue shoes
Pastellblue freshwater pearls, organza ribbon, and silverplated toggel, chain and charms.
This one I've also made in light pink and olivegreen.

Sketch Challenge - Sukkersött

There was such an inspireing sketch on Sukkersött this week!
And since I'm producing a lot of Christmas cards atm this was perfect!!

Magnolia stamp coloured with distress ink, refillers.
Magnolia gingerbread paper and Graphic 45 pucnhed with Martha Stewarts Doily lace.
Dekos: flowers from Prima and Papirloftet and small gingerbread metall charm (you do?)

This is one of the cards I will be selling at a Christmas fair the 12-13december!
I've made 50 cards by now, and more will come!

If you're swedish and/or near Avesta please come and see me! :)
Info about the fair!

Its a dogs life!

This weeks inspirering sketch from Creative Scrappers is made by Kristine herself and it was just so much fun to work with!!
We're on # 79 now and this is what it looks like:

My friend Yngve had taken such a cute pic of my dog, and the orange from the basketball matched so well with the Lilybee papers, that are in the Nooks november kit atm.

Those primaflowers are just awsome! :)
Now go play!

christmascard + matchboxes

I've been productive!!
I've made a lot of altered matchboxes,  16 of the small ones in different colours and 9 of the bigger ones!
Plus a large pile of christmascards!

the larger ones has a hÄngel coloured with distress inks on them.
thickets from Mirabyll.
sorry for the crappy picts.. but its dark outside here now when I come home from work, will try and get some pictures taken this weekend to show some more stuff!

Henry the Mouse from Whiff of joy!! ♥
Been playing quite alot with my distress inks, and we are getting more and more friendly..
But my fingers look like I've been dipping them directly in it.. :)

My first DT assignement for Creative Scrappers!

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to be a part of Creative Scrappers and their teams!
The sketches are just so great and easy to work with! A true pleasure!

The first sketch I got to work with was nr 77:


And here is my take:

"Like master like dog"
Pink paislee papers and rubons, prima flowers and bling.


I love those prima flowercenters!! yumyum!

So now, hop on over to Creative scrappers and be inspired!!

no activity = lots of activity

yupp yupp!
No activity on the blog means that I'm crafting crafting crafting!!!
I fell into the jewelrymaking again! And its so much fun!
I will show you some pieces later, but I'm throwing in a LO I made for Pappersvinden today!

Its my dog as a puppy and how he ALWAYS wants to be where we are, if you sit down on the floor it wont take many seconds before he is in your lap.. and since hes quite big now he dont fit that well :)
My minds eye papers, prima flowers, thickers and a heart charm.
