MY CROCHET PANSIES

I  saw some beautiful pansies on :) I can not find and can not remember the name of the beautiful blog where I saw this - If you know what blog I mean PLEASE comment on this post and let me know- ........ blog and just had to try this (like so many things I see and have to try) I Googled and found this link on how to crochet some tiny pansies. Here are photos of the 7 pansies that I have made (doing some more right after I post this). The white ones are from a very old DMC thread that I´v had for a long time, the purple ones are made from a embroidery thread that I bought in USA 2007 and had not used - thought it would be cool to use it for these tiny sweet pansies.

MEMORY

I´v got this great Mentor at DSP and she had a challenge for me: Make a layout without a photo.
Well she really is the best so I did what I was asked to do LOL and this is my layout
Memory
Journaling: Some memories are stronger then others. Sometimes a memory pops in my mined from when I was around 5 years old and was in the backseat of my mom´s/dad´s car with her and my aunt. My mom was parking the car outside our home at Barugata 29 in Reykjavik, I had difficulty with saying the letter R it always came out aththththt - aththththt - aththththt - rrrrrrr - suddenly I could say RRRRRRR and of course I was saying  it the rest of the day. I still remember my happiness and my mom´s smile when I shouted "I CAN SAY R"

SELF PORTRAIT

I´m doing a small course with: Digital-Photography-School and this is my first one there. Self Portrait with props. I used an old camera that belongs to my husband. I love taking photographs and thought it would be cool to have an old camera as my prop.  I took myself, without the bacground, and copied to another layer in PSE6 then blurred the background and made it a little vintage with an action.

FANTASTIC

We have fantastic weather now :) that I think I might even go down town and brows some shops:)  What about you all - I do hope you have a good day and that you can make the most of it. I´m working on opening an Etsy shop, and now I just need to find out how to put a prize on my handmade goodies. I think that is the most difficult part, and the shipping - wow - I live in Iceland so I really have to go to the post office and ask them about the prizes.
Here is a photo I took on Sunday on a walk me and my hubby took.

....I´m going to start on my FABRIC COLLEGE - I´m a little afraid that I can not make it look right but I´m going to give all I have and then ............... I´m going to let you - my readers - decide if I can do this LOL LOL LOL
But first here is a photo of my dogs, my hubby was calling them - and telling them to go to "bed" one evening this week, and they just kind of looked at him with there cute faces and "almost" told him: we feel so warm and nice here, can we just stay here for the night" LOL
Hope you´ll have a wonderful weekend.

FABRIC COLLAGE

I want to try some FABRIC COLLAGE that is something that I find beautiful, I have this dream of making our bedroom kind of Vintage and I though that if I try on FABRIC COLLAGE with lace and buttons and images I might get the feel of Vintage Craft-making. So I´m going to try even though I´m not sure HOW TO - but after browsing a lot of blogs and looking at some amazingly beautiful FABRIC COLLAGE I think I can do some sort of a small on. I´m going to photo the process and I´ll post here when finished. Wish me luck and if you know of a good tutorial about FABRIC COLLAGE please let me know I would LOVE to post a link to that here - that is if I like the tut.

GRAB MY BUTTON

Hello dear friends.
I just made a button for my blog and you are welcome to grab it and put it on your blog or website. I would be so honored if you did that and I would love to know if you do:)  
Please do not use the photo on my button because it´s my sweet grandmother that I loved so very very much and still miss her. Even though it´s over 40 years since she died. She was the best grandmother ever so I´m proud to use her photo for my blog button and I am sure she would be so happy with my work. 
She was the one that though me to knit. 
I remember me coming home from school - she lived with us - and sit down on the floor beside her chair and she would tell me so many things and teach me so much. 
Grandma I still love you and miss you.

SNOW ON MAY 1ST

Yes we had snow - I think I might be living in the wrong country!  I do not absolutely NOT like snow nor do I like COLD weather.  So why do I live here???? that´s a big question - my hubby does not want to live anywhere else - so I think I must love him a lot LOL LOL my kid´s (well they are grown but live at home - studying) they want to live somewhere abroad and I´v told them that when they move they have to have a tiny space for me to be with them when it´s too cold here LOL LOL LOL 
But just so you can see that I was not lying here are some photos that I took yesterday of the COLD SNOW.





If you look closely at the last photo you can see my white little Chihuahua coming in from the snow through the back door that I could not open more until my hubby had shoveled the snow from the door LOL
But today :) that´s a different story, warm, sun and the snow is melting fast :)
I´m so lucky I have a great friend in Alaska and on skype yesterday she waved the good weather that she had - my way and it really worked. THANK YOU SO MUCH VINKONA
