Have been indulging myself in summer pattern now for a while. It must beacause I am longing for the sun and for warmth… Here in this part of the world (Sweden) we have snow, and cold, but we are sensing the spring and waiting for summer. At least me…..Can’t wait until we can sit outside again…My favorite time of the year!
But until then, I look for summer patterns and I dream….!
New stuff is always fun, isn’t it? So here on my FavoriteCraft we got a new site launched. It is about how to make a home made spa, and the site is going to be all about making your own soaps and stuff. We are planning for making tutorials and so later on. Here’s the site
Holidays means for many of us that we are taking pictures – tons of them! But to be honest…Many of the nice pics we have often stay in the camera or phone or maybe on the hard drive on our computer. But that’s sad! Why not share them with family and friends.
I found a great way of make nice scrap books on the computer. I make it fast, (no glue or paper pieces and stuff = nothing to clean…:), and I can send it with just some few clicks with my mouse. And the great thing with these scrap books is that you can keep it and make slide shows on your computer screen or TV, if you have that equipment. Easy to email, easy to post on Facebook, and easy to show your guests at home.
The software I use is very easy to use.. and I have to say…this is so much fun! Show it for you kids – they are gonna’ love it…they can make so many fun stuff to send to their friends. With this software you can also make nice Facebook timeline covers.
Now it is a great time at home…the garden is filled with flowers, and for me that is the best time of the year! I happen to love flowers…All kinds of them. But I have to say that peonies and roses are my absolute favorite…
This rose now growing in my garden: Moss Rose I love it!
My house is also filled with flowers; and I don’t mean just plants or fresh flowers, but I have flowers as wall art, on coffee mugs, on trays, on plates and you name it…I think I must be obsessed or something. But, in that case I think it is a good obsession!
I recently started a whole new webpage about flowers and crafts…..I added some craft videos from Youtube about making paper flowers, shabby chic flowers, crochet flowers etc. You can also find how to make flower arrangements, and more.
So…if you also love flowers, please visit my flower blog….! Here’s the address:
Yesterday I saw a very beautiful quilt pattern, It has such lovely colours and pretty layouts. So…I made a video and put up on youtube. If you are a quilter you might try it…I think it is so nice! Here’s the video:
I love summer! But living in the northern part of Europe means that summer time is short, so you have to take care of and enjoy every minute of it!
Days like today, when it is cold and rainy – even if the calendar says it’s in the midst of summer, you just have to make the best of it….what is that…well, for me it can be all kinds of crafts! You can make your own diy project, no matter the weather!
