Good news

October 26, 2012

My pc charger is back and so am I! Oh, what a relieve that was.

Remember how I told you a long long time ago I was working on something new?  Well, I was and I still am… It’s a new blog! -or a new blog layout at least.

I’m getting help from my sweet (and might I add very very skilled) big brother… but the thing is we are both busy busy people and time is not what it used to be… it takes time… but but but, within long, hopefully, this blog will have a new and much prettier look.

I’m not sure what has happened, but the pictures on this blog all of a sudden went nuts and changed sizes yesterday???  I didn’t do anything…. Does not look very good. Argh! Hopefully it will get back to normal again…

Sleep tight.

Still missing

October 25, 2012

I had hoped to avoid getting to know Anders computer. But my blog-craving has become too strong. And it seems my pc charger has decided to stay at a hotel in Germany for a lot longer than we did!

After a visit to at least 10 different stores looking for a replacement, it turns out that not just any charger will do. I cant get the one I need… My hope is, that it will show up in the mail soon. Fingers crossed. Until then Anders pc have to do!

Here are a peek at some Christmas stuff I’ve made for the shop this week.

Patiently waiting…

October 23, 2012

I’m still here, but unfortunately my pc charger is not! Waiting waiting waiting for my computer a to come back to live. Hopefully soon!

Pictures are old, from a visit at my parents place. Found on Anders computer.

Happy Saturday everyone. Hope all is good!

A big change

October 5, 2012

Anders and I have made quite a big change in our everyday live recently. Anders is no longer a full time teacher! he is now part time self-employed at ‘Brinja Kbh’ and part time teaching.

From the very beginning of the shop more than 7 years ago, he has been a big part of the business. But work, in and around the shop, keeps growing and growing. And at the same time, we have tons of new ideas, but not enough time to make them real.

Hopefully this way, we will be able to do many more exciting new projects together.

Vilja and cousin April

October 4, 2012

These pictures are from a visit at cousin Aprils home this afternoon (pizza snack and scrimps). We are quite busy at the moment Anders and I… preparing for Christmas! exciting new projects are under construction, look forward to tell you more.

How to: miniature feather

September 18, 2012

You never know when you might need one?

Take any feather and cut of the excess. Then shape it up the way you want it with a scissor.

Ps: the tiny hat is made from leftover fabric and lace + a really good glue-gun. The ‘hat-foot’ ?  is made from 2 different sized buttons glued together and a screw upside down, +black paint.  On top of the screw is a round bead to shape the hat from the inside.

Cooking

September 17, 2012

Vilja loves to help out in the kitchen… this time around: bread, pizza backing and cinnamon cakes. Uhmm.

The little skirt is another ‘Granny O’ design., don’t  you just love it?

Have to run now. -You know, open the shop and all. Hopefully I will have time to check up on all your sweet comments later today.
