Accidental Christmas in July

I did say I wouldn’t pester you with anymore of my scrap fabric pieces so here’s something else. A little bit of a craft accident, I mean I’m not that in to starting the Christmas crafting in July normally! I have been meaning to try some traditional Swedish paper crafting for a while but just not gotten around to it. When I received a magazine for buying clothes (made by a Swedish designer) in all these great colours I thought why not use it for crafting. This is what I made during a few weeks when Freja was having her mini naps. Of some reason I liked the green pages and red goes nicely with green and then it’s a very short step to Christmas. So behold my Christmas “oro”. Folklore say they protect against bad spirits and nasty intentions. Kind of like a Scandi version of a dream catcher.

En julig oro.

Pen Thief



I got a little pen thief. I was drawing when she was asleep. Now my pens have turned into something to put in and out of her cardboard box. Very fascinating. Maybe time to get her some crayons.  

Jag har en liten penntjuv på golvet.

The last little scraps for a while, promise!



These will be the last scrap fabric pieces for a while I promise! I just don’t have much to show you at the moment. Trying to combine being a mom with getting enough time to start, or finish for that matter, projects is not what I’d describe as easy. There’s a few things I’ve not photographed yet that I’ve made to make our daily chaos less chaotic. I’ve also found time to doodle in my sketchbook. Mainly on the train to work on Saturdays. The days just fly by. I never understood quite what that meant before we had Freja. You know how people with children always say that. Well I say it too now.

Oh well, the window one was the second one I ever did and the little houses are the most resent one. Both are about postcard size or a little bit bigger. I hope you enjoy them.
