MY HAPPY SANTA

This cute guy is always somewhere at my home over the Christmas :) I made him a few years ago,.  I have no idea why he´s so much a favorite of mine - he just is - his cute smile and big red nose LOL I just love him. Wanted to share a photo of him with you all. 
Hope you´ll have a good time over the new year. Thank you all for visiting my blog, and all your comment - they really are special to me.

CHRISTMAS-GREETINGS

from Iceland to all of my blog-friends. 
I hope you´ll have a good time over the holidays and come back soon in the new year of 2012 - wow how time goes - soon there will be SUMMER LOL LOL, but for now it´s still winter here and we have had a COLD Desember (witch I don´t like by the way)

But because it´s still winter, here is a photo from Icelandic winter 2011 (taken from my balcony)

The funny thing is I do not like the snow but I do LOVE all kinds of snowmen LOL and here is one I made a few years back.

But this is maybe my comeback to the designing world. LOL  Hope you enjoy this little gift, click HERE to download Tora-soft background (you can also click on the preview if you like, to download this paper kit.

COLD BUT BEAUTIFUL

We have had cold weather here in Iceland but I still go for my morning walks with my dogs, I love it even though eats morning I think " oh I´m not going for a walk this morning " then one of my dogs starts whining and that means " lets go for our walk " so I put on my warm cloths and go out. Sometimes I have my camera with me, sometimes I forget, but when I remember I usually take some photos, here are a few I took last weekend in my neighborhood in Reykjavík.

PINCUSHIONS

I bought cute stuff the other day and wanted to make some pincushions from the 4 saucers.  My first try :) at that kind of craft. I think they turned out fine.  What do you think?

The saucers just coasted about 84 cents so I though well if I try to make just one pincushion and it does  not turn out fine, I can keep it for myself LOL and make something different from the other 3.

 Then I saw this beauty and it only was about 40 cent so I though "I can make this into a beautiful pincushion" but you know what, when I came home and looked at it I though NO WAY I´m just going to have this the first cup in my collection of different cups for use when people come for coffee :)  I´v wanted to start collecting cups like this (where there are no two alike)  for a very long time, so now I have my # 1

 
So when I was going to the register and paying for my stuff I saw this beauty and of course I had to take that to - now the thing is am I going to make something or going to keep it ??????   I really think I´ll try to make a pincushion out of it!  Now lets hope I can sell these pincushions - I have nothing to do with them all myself.

PAPER FLOWERS



 
I love these roses, and if you look closely you can see a drawing that was in this old book I bought and I almost cut it into pieces to make a flower but I´m happy I saw it before the cuter did it´s job LOL LOL
Few weeks ago I bought an old book that I wanted to use for crafting, I found some tutorials on-line about making paper flowers, I really wanted to try making some of them an here is my first attempt - I´m really happy with how easy it was to make these flowers.

BEDSPREAD

I know I´v not been blogging for some time now, but here is a small blog from me :)  I want to show you what I´m working on for my bedroom - a bedspread - a crochet one with over 100 pieces of dollies like on the photo. I´v only done about 5 now and I´m in now hurry to do this, so I like to take it with me when I go visit a friend or like to day. A friend came over and asked if I would like to come and sit with her in her garden in the sun, so of course I did and took with me my crochet work. So here is a photo of my first piece. I just really started to crochet so I´m very happy how this is turning out.
