CRAFTY CHRISTMAS CHEER

 
Christmas is a great time of year. It's about family, coming together, eating great food and...decorating. So we thought we'd spread some Christmas joy by giving you some inspiration and creative ideas during this December. 
 
We'll post all sorts of projects everyday up until Christmas. You'll find anything from paper-craft and homemade gifts to knitting and we'll provide how to's for all the different projects, along with printables and patterns. 
 
So come back tomorrow for some crafty Christmas cheer here on the blog.

NOVEMBER LIGHT

It's pretty grey outside this time of year, but when the sun comes out, it creates the most amazing color palette. Out walking the other day I snapped these photos, it was late afternoon, and the sun was setting. Everything was so white and clear, with this golden glow, that it made me see textures and materials everywhere, practically begging to be photographed :) 
 
Later this week we are starting our Christmas special. So stay tuned for some cozy crafting and creative days here on the blog.
Happy Tuesday / Annika &Sussi

INSPIRATION & CREATIVE MINDS

I love coming up with ideas for creative projects. Sometimes I think I like the idea of an idea more than I like the actual finished piece. That does sound a bit strange, but I will try to explain it. To me a creative project is not just about what you get in the end. 
 
 
The process of an idea, turning it into something useful or a decorative piece, is what really gets me going. Feeling inspired to be creative. It's not necessarily easy to come up with new ideas all time, but you can train the way you go about it.
 
 
I like how having an idea challenges you mind; like what materials am I gonna use and can I maybe get the idea from simply looking at materials and textures...things I find, or keep in my drawers? I also think that visualizing the idea, the process and how you want it to look in the end, is a really good way to spark one's workflow. 
 
 
This series of pictures is all about feeling inspired from material, textures and colors. When I brought home the flowers, I thought I knew what I wanted to do with them, but when I looked at them, I was blank. So I thought; I'm just gonna pull out whatever things and materials I think might be useful and that is going to inspire me. 
 
 
I have yet to finish this little decoration, but I like how putting these things together, helps form a picture in my head and visualize my goal. Because there's one great thing about finishing a project...and that's when you look at it and realize, that this is exactly what you had in mind
 
 
This is of course my way of working, but it's interesting how we all go about this, because everyone is so different. I would love to hear about your creative ways and how you keep inspired.
 
 
May you all have a wonderfully creative weekend!

CANDLES & AUTUMN GREENS

Green is such a wonderful color. I love how it fit all the seasons and how you can just mix it up with pretty much any color you can imagine. I especially love it with these brown tones. This is an easy table decor and I like how easily I can move it around, if I need to use the table. 
 
 
Even though I like to decorate, being able to use my things and my furniture has top priority. This table is a good example of serving its purpose well. I currently live in an apartment, where extra room is a luxury, we cant afford :-), and
 
 
a while ago my partner and I built this huge table, a perfect table for dinner parties, but we have been using this table for pretty much every thing. Sure it looks awesome when decorated, but I like how we enjoy using this table. It has really become a cherished piece of furniture.
 
 
Some time ago I found these big jars, which I use for candles. It gives such a nice glow and interesting shadows, when you keep the candles like that. It also makes beautiful reflections, because of the glass and it looks like you have several candles lit. Super cozy this time a year.
 
 
Happy Decorating Everyone!
