Back home

I've just come home after being two weeks in a small village about 2-3 hours from here. I've been knitting a little, but most of the time I've spent working/studying.

On the photo (taken by Sune) is Zam playing in the snow with his friend Cilla. He's so happy when he finds someone to play with since Ia (my miniature schnauzer) is 13 years old next month and not at all in a playing mood :-)

A is for age: 25. (Until 7 May ...)
B is for book of choice: I love reading children's books and my favourite is Ronia the Robber's Daughter by Astrid Lindgren.
C is for career: I'm still a student for a few more months ... At the moment, I'll be happy if I get a job connected to my studies :)
D is for your dogs' name: Ia and Zam
E is for essential items to bring to a party: A couple of friends :-)
F is for favourite song at the moment: I don't know ... but today is the day of birthday songs ;)
G is for favourite game: As a child I loved Pictionary, but I don't know which one is my favourite now.
H is for home town: Växjö
I is for instruments you play: I've played the piano.
J is for jam or jelly you like: Strawberry. Hjortron (vad heter det på engelska?).
K is for kids: No.
L is for living arrangements: In a small (but not too small) flat with Magnus.
M is for a movie I like: There are so many I like, but at the moment I cannot remember any titles in English!! Gah!
N is for name of your crush: Magnus!!
O is for overnight hospital stays: 1.
P is for phobias: I don't have any.
Q is for quotes you like: This isn't really a quote, but ... When I was a child I used to lay down on my parents bed and read the names of all the books in their bookshelf. One book was called something like "Feel the fear but do it anyway" (I'm not a good translator, but I think you get what I mean). I often think of that book title when I'm a little scared of something and want to escape it. Doing it, instead of escaping, makes me feel good. And the title reminds me of that.
R is for relationship that lasted the longest: The longest one is the one still going on - with Magnus :-)
S is for sweets you like: I'm addicted to chocolate ;)
T is for time you wake up: Since I'm a student ... it depends. But never after 9.00 (with an exception of when I'm sick or when I've done something special the other night, like being to a long lasting party).
U is for underwear: Simple and not too much decorated.
V is for vegetables you love: I love so many vegetables ... it's hard to choose.
W is for weekend plans: It's Sunday afternoon already, but for the rest of the day ... I plan to relax, eat good food, have fun.
X is for x-rays you've had: Teeth.
Y is for yummy food you make: I love cooking and trying many new kinds of food, as well as the grandmother kind of food. Especially I love vegetarian food.
Z is for zodiac sign: Taurus? Is it called that? I'm not sure ...
Å är för åt dem som du vill skicka listan vidare till: No one special.
Ä är för älsklingstrend: Pysseltrenden är bra för det ökar tillgången på pysselmaterial ;)
Ö är för en önskan just nu: Att få ett jobb. Att Magnus får ett jobb. :-)

Today is Magnus birthday (32) and we'll go to a restaurant and maybe also to the cinema this evening :-) Grattis på födelsedagen Tok!

Snow, snow, snow ... I want spring! I want green grass, tulips, birds singing!

Luckily I've got a boyfriend who's giving me tulips in various colors. I love tulips and I love the sound when I touch them *smile*.

Crafting at the moment: I'm working on the gift for my sister and her husband 2B. I cannot show you any pictures because I'm not really sure of whether she's reading my blog or not ...

Sweet Daisy

My new webshop is now open! www.sweetdaisy.se

I wanted an opening with a lot of nice handmade things, everything working perfect ... etc ... and weeks went into months and I realised it's better to open the shop even if I'm not really satisfied yet because me knowing people are looking at the things might make me work faster *lol*

There aren't translations into English everywhere yet ... and also I will add prices in USD. But if you have any questions you can always email me at my webshop address: info@sweetdaisy.se

Oh, and there's a kind of lottery going on in the shop as well, with a secret handmade gift! Check it out ;)

knit, knit

I haven't been very creative lately. I've made a couple of necklaces, a few simple cards, sewing a little, the invitation cards for my sister's wedding ... but not so much more. However, the other day I felt my creative mood return! :D I knitted a bit, made a new necklace, bought material for the gift for my sister and her husband 2B and begun working with it, finished a spread in an altered book etc.
