Taking a break.

This is what it is all about!!!!

I have decided to take a break from blogging and computers for a while. Its impossible to stop crafting but I will skip the blogging part of it all. I would like to thank you all for your ever so kind comments and appreciation of my LittlePoppins stuff. This does not mean though, that I will forever be lost in cyberspace. I will probably be back some time this fall. Until then, have a great summer! I will be spending mine in lovely Sweden.



Fast Food Heaven.

Someone told me that the 80s are back in business. That means that these "pillow case" style dresses should be spot on. Girls liked it because it had a guitar, i like it because of the "potrable cassette player". Girls does not know what a Walkman is, they looked at the drawing and asked if it was a car??!!


Brooches, brooches, everywhere....

Plastic beads, scrap fabric, felt and buttons. I am addicted to making brooches....


For my sister.

Brooches for my sister who is working as a nurse back in Sweden. Do you like them sis??


I have been challenged! It was actually quite a while ago that Syfröken challenged me on her blog. It was about posting a photo on your own blog. The sixth photo in the sixth folder. So here it it. My girls! We have just arrived home from hospital and they are one week old. I like this pic so much I even have it printed on my diaper bag.



Trying to organize myself and my crafting. But somehow other stuff ALWAYS gets in the way.....hmmmm....



The wedding we went to yesterday night was fabulous! The girls had a great time and enjoyed all the attention they got from being so cute in their little dresses. The reception started at 19.30 and dinner where served at 21.00. The girls fell alseep on the way home and slept like little angles.


Some serious posing.

Here is me doing some serious posing to show off my new hairpiece. It is going to be worn at a wedding tomorrow. I also made a matching brooch last week, I just cant find it. That is so me!!



Girls are helping me model some new button bracelets.



I am in a competition to win the above pictured scrap booking candy! Have a look over at House of Inspiration.


"Please mommy, please...."

Every time the girls see me make new brooches they ask me if it is for them. And every time I have to tell them that it is for mommy's brooch box. Mind you, they already have their own collection of my hand made brooches so they don't really need any more. However, the last few days they have actually asked me for "Hello Kitty brooches to put on their jackets to go to school". It's the first time they have actually asked me for something this specific so I thought I would honor their request. The nose looks like a piggy nose though, but the girls where over the moon and proudly went off to school this morning!! Over all result, success!


Sunny day.

Today we spent the whole day over in Palmanova and Magaluf. If was nice and sunny and I think, and hope, that the spring has finally arrived. The girls even kicked their shoes off and tried out the water. To cold for mommy though!


New stuff.

After nearly two months of letting the sewing machine just sit there in the corner to collect dust I finally pulled it out. Here is the result. Something that was easy and quick. Little zippy purses in oilcloth. The felt flowers are stitched by hand. Cant wait for spring to arrive!


Lovely day.

Today we have been to a Birthday Party. Little Africa turned 2 years old and good weather, as you can see on the photo, combined with nice food and happy people made the day complete! Tomorrow we are going to another party! Busy, busy.....


Carnival times.

Yesterday was Carnival day at the girls nursery. Its that time of the year here now you see. At first they where meant to where their Spiderman suits, but then, the day before they just refused!!! So, after confirming with 2 stubborn 3-year old sweet children, that they wanted to dress up as princesses instead, I had to make some skirts that somehow resembled a princess outfit. So the skirts where made the day before (or more like the night before!) the event. A simple design turned in to these two skirts. The girls where over the moon happy in the morning when they saw them and happily got dressed to go to school. That was my reward!!

They all went together with their teachers to the small village square to play for like half an hour and take pictures.


Family first.

I have been taking a break when it comes to stitching lately. Family life is right now at the top of my list and the girls take all my time at the moment. We do however craft together, like paint, play everyday with dough, print with our hands and yesterday we did 2 necklaces that we are going to send to the girls aunt and uncle. I hope they will like them. I have do admit though, that after like a month without stitching it is starting to itch in my fingers so lets see if I have something to show soon.


Pipe cleaners.

Me and my sister T made these for the Girls. They played with them for like 5 seconds. Then the cat ate them!

Made with Love.

These beautiful creations are hand stitched by my dear Sister. She made them for the Girls as a Christmas gift. They love them and play with them every day. I think they are just adorable! Thank you J!


Girls new curtains.

Fabric from "Kupan" in Karlstad. Girls loves horses so this is going to be new curtains for their room. It is really thick cotton so it will be perfect!

Back and just playing.

We are back from our trip to Sweden. It is pouring down outside and we are spending a lot of time indoors playing and just hanging out together. Girls got new play dough for Christmas and mama likes to play as well!!
