Dreaming, dreaming

At the moment I don't have very much space to do anything. Our kitchen is under renovation now, so everything is so messy in the house once again. I can't even make the curtains for the new kitchen window or other sewing projects. I can't wait to finally have some real crafting corner/work desk. We actually got an old timber board from somewhere. I think it was used as table board before, but it is in a bit bad condition now, old paint etc. I am going to start doing something for it as soon as some other more urgent work is done. It is nice heavy timber and I think it would make a lovely work desk. It is not very big, but you can't bring any huge piece of furniture in this tiny little house with limited space. I think our little home is going to look very nice soon and the work desk would be one dream come true, to have one little corner for my own projects.

My Etsy finds




A couple of weeks ago I did my first Etsy shoppings. I have to say that I am very happy about my new Art print and craft supplies I ordered. I think I am going to order much more later. Etsy is a great site. You can always find something different. Both of my orders arrived really fast, even though they were sent from the other side of the world.




First of all I wanted to order some art for our walls. Something that would look good in this old house. At the moment we don't have anything but mirrors hanging on the walls. I found this lovely shop of Elsita. I just love her papercut prints. I think I am going to order some more later. My print was called Treehouse. It is still waiting for proper frames. Those frames in the picture a slightly too small, but I think this picture would look great with black frames anyway.





I got also some tiny little stickers from Elsita. :)

My other order was purse frames from
ThaiSupplies. I have wanted to try making little purses for a while. I ordered two different sizes of purse frames. They seem to be nice strong and heavy. I hope I can soon post about little purses I made. (haven't actually made yet) :)

Hibernating

My poor little blog has been neglected lately. This house takes most of my energy lately. I have been painting or making curtains whenever I am not working. I kinda feel that I have no energy left for any extra activities. Anyway it looks much better here now, and I hope soon I will have some time for my hobbies.



This is how one corner of the living room was looking around Christmas time. It looks much better now.

Merry Christmas!


Lämpö for Valokuvatortai.


This picture was taken around a year ago. My boyfriend's parents own this living room and the dog. With this picture I want to wish the best Christmas to everyone! Hyvää joulua! (Finnish) And of course Nollaig Shona! (Irish)
