Today I want to give a huge welcome to Astrid over from Red Red Completely Red. I was first drawn to Astrid's blog a while back by her Scandinavian style, felt-work, and unique projects (she's done some super amazing stuff with chalkboard paint!). She also makes these adorable "Travelling Tillberries," softies made from recycled items like sweaters and potato sacks. My personal favorite is the fox!
Astrid's grandfather (Morfar) is a watercolor artist who taught Astrid to add red to all true works of art. Astrid fully embraces this and tries to have a bit of red in everything she creates.
Astrid's Danish heritage comes from her mother's side, her Mormor being from Denmark. She lived in Sweden when she was little, and later lived in Denmark for 4 years. Needless to say, she is enthusiastic about keeping her Danish heritage alive, especially at Christmastime!
