Easter eggs

Standard

Hello there!

The days are passing and you would expect it to be spring by now, but the snow keeps on making surprise visits. Its’s quite interesting to see the crocus a spring flower surounded by snow. The sun stays up a bit longer and its more bright now. So that has affected my work in a positive way, I have been and I am working on several watercolor paintings and also some clay things. I have been making some last minute clay easter decorations that I will show you here now.

I want to wish you all a happy Easter!

I hope you all have a nice evening, night, morning, afternoon or day wherever you may be in this world.

Easter sneak peek

Easter sneak peek

Hello everyone!

The snow has come and gone from day to day here. I love to watch snow fall, but it’s sad that it melts away some hours later. In some weeks its Easter and I have started preparing Easter decorations. Where I live its common to bring in birch twigs to the house and hang decorations with them for Easter. So I have made some clay eggs just for this purpose. I thought I would let you have a peek before the holiday. We do not have any birch twigs in our household yet, so therefore the tulips have to suffice.

I hope you all had a nice time here.

I wish you all a good morning, afternoon, evening, night or day wherever you may be on this earth.

Colorful Clay Jewelry

Colorful Clay Jewelry

Hello there!

In my previous post I showed you all the Christmas things in clay I had for sale at the Christmas market. However, I also had jewelry for sale and I thought it would be a great time to display them now. The jewelry I made consists of necklaces and earnings in different shapes, sizes and colors. The white necklace with roses differ from the rest because the design is painted on with acrylic paint. The other necklaces and one pair of the earrings are decorated with clay on clay, a technique that is called clay applique.

A weeks drawing with WorldWatercolorGroup Challange part 2

Standard

Hello everybody!

This is the third post in 2017 and it’s going to revolve around the World Watercolor Group Challenge. I will show you all my drawings from last week and I will also talk a little bit about what I chose to depict. It will probably take a little time before I post the drawing from this week. (Note: I have noticed that some of my spelling is incorrect in my drawings.)

Day 8: French Fries

I chose to draw Fish n Chips that was and still is one of my favorite foods. I really liked eating this when we were at markets or festivals as a child. That’s why I painted my favorite dish and not only French Fries by themselves.

Day 9: Cooking Toy/ Food Toy

I altered it to a food toy because did not have any cooking toy as a child, at least not what I could think of.  I remember that I had a toy register and plastic food that I played food store with. I tried to remember what type of plastic food that I had to play with and I know that the once you see here, I had them. The one that is stuck in my memory is the green peas for what reason I don’t know, they just are.

Day 10: Outdoor Game

I did not have such a hard time finding out what to draw this week. The objects I wanted to paint just kind of came to me by just looking at the titles of the day. The outdoor game I picked for this task is called ‘’Kubb’’ and is a very usual outdoor game where I come from. We used to and of course still do, play it during the summers with family and friends. We have actually even played it in school.

Day 11: Frozen Treats

This was an ice cream that I loved as a child but then all of a sudden they stopped selling it. So, I had a very hard time remembering its name and that’s why I had to draw it from my memory. Each time I when to the public swimming pool my grandmother bought me this delicious ice cream.

Day 12: Rubber Duckie

I am not hundred percent sure if I had a rubber duck but I have a vaguely memory of one. If my memory does not fail me I think that quite similar to my drawing.

Day 13: Pet

I had several animals during my childhood but I chose to paint my latest rodent that was a Siberian hamster. She was such a cute little girl and she was super fast. I remember that she sat in the palm of my hand and still she did not cover half of my hand.

Day 14: Visual Toy

I did not own this toy myself, it was my brothers. But I used to play with it from time to time. The one you see here is what I believe the exact same type that my brother had.  I noticed that the color of this drawing did not turned out as it is in real life when I scanned it into the computer.

Day 15: Television Character

This was a very popular TV show several years ago where I come from. I think that they aired it each evening during many years. It was about a bear that lived in a storehouse with his snail friend. They usually got visitors that they did some kind of adventure with. That is at least what I can remember about the TV show.

I hope you all had a very nice time in this post.

I wish you all a good afternoon, evening, night, morning or day wherever you may be on this earth.

Swedish princess cake of yarn

Standard

Hi there once again! Today it seems like I will publish two posts. These gifts have already been given so I thought I would let you all see it.

 So I made small swedish princess cakes out of crochet and then I connected them to keychain rings. I later attatched, to the keychain, small handmade Fimo Clay charms with my initials and the namn of my website. Then I printed a gift box template from Pinterest and cut out the box. I used double-sided tape to put the box together and some string for decoration. I created these gifts for my boyfriends teachers as a Christmas  gift. 

I wish you all once again a great holiday and a good afternoon, evening, night, morning or day wherever you may be on this earth.

Christmas on it’s way

Standard

Hello everyone!
Now it’s December and the countdown to Christmas has begun. My craft workshop is filled with things that are waiting to be fixed into something handmade. I nearly can’t find a free spot where I can sit and create, but I’m working on my crafts everyday so hopefully the table will soon see daylight. I have many things I would like to share with you all this month so I will try to make some extra posts. In this blog entry, I’m going to focus on Christmas gift wrapping and especially the tags. When I was wrapping up some presents a few days ago I noticed that we had a shortage on gift tags. If you have read my blog you may have figured out already that I made my own gift tags. This was actually very quick and easy. I looked through my scrapbooking paper supply for Christmas themed paper. Then I drew a stencil on how I wanted the tags to look like and then I use this stencil and a pen to outline the tags. I cut out the shapes from the paper and then I use a very handy tool called hole puncher to create the small holes so I can attach the tags to the gifts.

I hope you had a nice read.
I wish you all a good night, morning, day or evening wherever you may be on this earth.

Crochet for little feet

Standard

Hello again, and yes I’m back so soon with an old craft.

I see myself as a crafter with few limits or at least I try to broaden my view in the craft world as much as I can. Today I would like to share with you another type of craft that I make and that’s crochet. I rather much prefer crochet over knitting but that is of course only my opinion. When I was a child I always tried to knit a scarf every Christmas but I never came too far with that, so I never got to enjoy knitting. When I told this story, someone said ‘’ why don’t you try crochet, it’s so much fun’’ and so I did and I’ve been doing it ever since. I’m such a person that can make many crochet projects after another and then it can take months before I start again. But I usually always make a crochet Christmas gift, at least one every year. I think that things made from yarn are very suiting for the holiday season. I am happy to say that I one year managed to crochet a whole scarf. Last December I crocheted my most complicated project yet, I made small baby converse for an acquaintance that expected her second child. She loves converse and that’s why I decided to create small soft baby converse.

I found many free tutorials on how to crochet baby converse shoes on YouTube. So, I watched different of them and I think that I mixed some of the videos to get the shoe as I wanted. If you are interested of doing something similar I recommend looking at YouTube.

I don’t remember how much yarn I used for this project but it wasn’t too much. I can at least say that an autumn scarf needs more yarn than these two small shoes.

I hope that you had a nice time in this post with old crafts.

I wish you all a good evening, night, morning or day wherever you may be on this earth.
