Happy with my finished Christmas decoration! Starched lace crochet. Here's the house without lights: I sewed the roof pieces together at the top but the roof itself is just set on top of the walls. This makes it easier to fit the lights.     This was the first time I tried this and I'm happy with most things. I starched this using 50-50 sugar-water solution. Next time I might use glue-water to make it harder.  Haven't decided yet where I will display the house!

Hej hopp i stugorna! Hoppas att ni alla har det bra där ute! idag har jag en sk explosion box att visa. Jag brukar göra dessa som små album, men denna fick vara en jul hälsning istället. Det roliga med dom är, att det ser ut som en "vanlig" ask, men inuti finns en rolig överraskning... Jag har använt papper från maja design och från Pion design. Älskar båda, dom är så fina, och passar så bra ihop! På locket har jag lite kvistar och bär, som jag har kletat på med "snö" snow...

Another week has passed, and I've still enjoyed this new lifestyle. I've always been an avid reader (ever since childhood - our parents read a lot to us, and I learned how to myself already when I was 3!), but after youth it's been difficult to find enough time to read books. When I was in University, I felt "reading-tired" after so much academical non-fiction, and preferred newspapers and

They played with the doll house a bit and when I went to take pictures of it for today, it did look a little different. There seems to be a Christmas party: The upstairs gang is a loud crowd More pizza is carried in… She has been partying since Halloween… Aunt Lydia has gotten tired and has gone to bed already...

My breakfast nowadays is this tasty yoghurt-jam-nut mixture. Organic yoghurt, organic jam and nut compote. The nut compote contains of walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews and pistachios. It´s flavored with vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, chilli, sugar and rhum. Don´t worry, I´ve boiled away all the alcohol in the rhum to prevent having a shot first thing in the morning... Chocolate. What would life be without chocolate? Pretty boring IMO. The chocolates above are filled with prunes soaked in...

I know I've been very very absent, naughty me, but all these Christmas preparations have kept me busy. I'm not stressed out because of Christmas (or Solstice or Yuletide, as we pagans like to call it, tehehe), because I love it, but this time of year it still keeps me away from many other activities.Life is good. Tomorrow we'll drive in a car packed with family and presents to my native eastern

So, we have settled in Canada. We're doing great, Sigvard the cat is good and everything is going well. Christmas is coming up and I can feel the panic raising in me: presents!! I've been online, trying to find gift ideas.. I found a very informative and good site on Christmas. Unfortunately it is in Finnish, but everybody from Finland, take a look: Joulu.info . I work at a local daycare and I've had some issues at work. I know that interns often get taken advantage of, but it really feels like...

I will do my best to stay in good spirits and not to exhaust myself. One thing at a time, with an audiobook in the ears and some carols in between, all should be fine. After all, when I look around, there is plenty to see and enjoy... the candles, the decorations, the tree... ...

I received such heart-warming (and mouth-watering :) ) mail today. Heli made this beautiful Christmas card herself and sent it with a thank you for giving her a drive to and from our stitching meetings couple of times this year. Thank you so much Heli, this mail really made my day! The card is so gorgeous and I hope all the details can be seen in the photo. Heli also sent me some raw chocolate, I just LOVE raw chocolate! The one with Goji Berries is extremely good (I haven't tasted the other...

Wow, it has been a while, again. Sorry about that. And I wish everyone a happy, happy 2009! The holidays are mostly over now. We're going for an Epiphany dinner over at Karlo's parents next week, but all we have to do is go, so it won't take any organising. Pheew.Christmas was - once again - super lovely!

The Christmas evening´s dinner was sooooooo much fun... No, really, we had good time. The nephews (boyfriend´s, not mine) were just a little tired after playing all day and after opening the gifts.

My video tutorial for 2-row crochet snowfake has been popular. So this year I decided to make a one-row snowflake! It is quick to make. You can crochet one in any wool or yarn. I hardened it using white glue and water. A bit more glue than water. Plenty of time to make these for friends, family and your own Christmas tree this year.

Jälleen elossa. Joulu on onnellisesti ohi. Jouluaatto minun kotikodissani, joulupäivänä 200km anoppilaan. Liikaa jouluruokaa, liikaa turhia lahjoja. Joulupukilla minkkiturkki ja muovinaamari. Pukki kuuli kuitenkin onneksi toiveet, ja saimme kasan villasukkia. Mistä niitä muualta voisi saada kuin joulupukilta..? Tänäkin vuonna kotimatkalla vannoimme miehen kanssa, että tämä oli sitten viimeinen joulu, jolloin emme uskalla sanoa vanhemmillemme, että haluaisimme viettää joulun...

In the late 80's I decided to make a quick-t-crochet angel for Christmas tree. I was then working in Northern ireland as a craftsperson. I noticed how much people wanted to decorate their homes for Christmas. Over the years i have made hundreds of these, if not over a thousand. Many of the come put every Christmas time in Ireland, Finlad as well as many other countries. I have used these to send to friends instead of Christmas cards. Now I decided to finally make instructions for crocheting the...

Some of these gifts were stitched earlier, but all of them were finished this autumn for their recipients. I have many wonderful friends and I'm so grateful for that.

So I made surprise Christmas calendars for them, 24 tiny gifts for each, to open daily in December before Christmas. I planned this...
