I'm still adjusting to the "real world" after such a long and wonderful break. I haven't done any crafts yet in 2013, but I definitely have quite the list going. Caryn (my sis) and I are planning on holding monthly Christmas craft days so we can actually accomplish everything we want to by next Christmas. I will be sure to post what we create next Saturday.
I received a lot of Scandinavian inspiration over the break. This wall hanging being one of the inspiring things:
My sweet little sister, Maren, picked me up this wall hanging at a local craft fair she was at (for $7, what a steal!).
And Caryn bought me this little beauty:
Yes, that's right. I'm going to be a Swedish hardtack making fool. Or a knäckebröd fool as the Swedes say.
I also received a couple incredible Scandinavian Christmas books from my dear Mom/Dad and Aunt (thank you!).
I will be sure to post projects as I attempt them. I also got a pretty awesome Swedish cookbook that I will have to share a recipe or two as I try new things.
All that to say that I am excited about all the new craft possibilities 2013 is going to bring. It's going to be epic. And fun. And very Scandinavian. Stay tuned.
