This blog is mostly in Swedish, but I have noticed that it gets a fair amount of visits from other countries too. So, from now on (31st Jan. 2014) I will try to add at least a short English summary at the end of new posts, and perhaps also some of the older posts. In most cases you can probably figure out what I have done by just looking at the photos, but if you have any questions – please feel free to ask in the comments field.
I have always loved crafting and making things with my hands. I work with various materials, such as wool, metal wire, textiles, leather and concrete. As I am really bad at throwing things away, many of my projects are also focused on recycling or upcycling. Not everything turns out beautiful or in any way useful, but that doesn´t matter if the creative process has been fun and taught me something.
With a fulltime job and two young children, it´s not always easy to find time for a hobby. Luckily, both my daughters enjoy crafting too and are often involved in my projects. I also think that taking the time to do crafts makes me a happier mother, partner, employee and person as a whole.
We live in the north of Sweden on a small farm (another hobby) with two dogs, two cats, a growing number of hens, turkeys and a small flock of sheep.
