This weekend Magnus and I went to Lübeck, Germany, since I had found a cheap trip and we wanted to relax a bit.
I did see one or two craft material shops there, but unfortunately (or luckily - for my economy) they were both closed when we passed by.
There was also a puppet theatre museum in one of the old houses and we stopped for a little while in the museum shop to look at the puppets that were for sale. So beautiful and inspiring. I think I'll try to make one myself one day.

Except for the puppet museum, Lübeck is famous for "crafting" in marzipan. They make amazing fruits and animals and ... "statues" etc out of marzipan. It's hard to eat something that's looking too nice ... ;) So we went to a café to have marzipan cake!

In a book shop I found the most beautiful journals and I fell in love ... So nice design, so good binding, so nice and high quality of paper ... aaah! I bought one with an interesting binding and a chinese painting and blank pages. It'll be a book for drawing etc. I bought another, smaller, one which is lizard green and almost magic in its colors, pattern and design. The photo doesn't do it justice.

Have I always been crafting? ;-)

Since I a) had a lot of magazines with inspirational pictures and b) am going to move and don't want to carry too many thing I decided to cut out the most inspiring/nice/etc from the magazines, glue them in an "inspiration book" and through away the rest! At the moment I'm working with the flower/gardening section in the book. I cut very fast, I don't have time for details now, but I still think it turns out pretty nice. I hope to show more spreads later on :-)

Beautiful necklace from Erin (junk drawer) that I recieved in purplepinkandorange.com jewelry swap in January.

Can someone *please* send me some spring weather? With an exception of a ~two days in the end of January we've had snow since December!!! Guess if I'm fed up with it ...

The other day I made some body cream to add to my shop (sweetdaisy.se) and I also tried making a bath oil with different colors.

Stephanie (from Nifty Tifty blog) sent me this the other day. I love Stash Tea (except for the decaf ones), but cannot buy it here and it was very sweet of her to send me so many kinds of tea + some material for crafting :-)

Francesca has sent me a lot of lovely things, but I was lazy with my camera and now I've spread the things all over the flat. But here are some of the things she sent me :-) (She also sent me candle lights, glitter confetti, nice paper for crafting, tea etc etc.)

Beautiful and inspiring things from Carrie at Believe magic.
