About me

Mitt foto
I am a creative mother of two and grandmother of four wonderful kids. I like to create with the grandchildren so they learn to play without toys. Have always drew, painted and stitched. Like to reuse old things. Maybe a chair gets a new style or a few plates becomes a cookie dish. So create cards and paintings fit me. Lives in Sweden, Karlstad

This weekend will be creative, I hope anyway.....

So it's Friday again! Today I donate blood so you do something good for someone else who needs it more than me. Then it will try to create some new paintings, found some really nice frames. But they will get a makeover before using them. Tomorrow we will see when the grandchild Oliwer play floorball and then I go home and try to be a little creative.

Wish you all an incredible weekend

Love and Hugs//K8

Italy, Arenzano…. love it!
Feeling perhaps not entirely sure to write in English but I will try. Talking is no problem, you can always get others to understand what you mean.
Just like a child, it is always a beginning!
At last weekend! Worked, leaving blood and looked after grandchildren. The husband has cooked salmon and served a glass of wine. Now you can just relax and enjoy the rest of the evening. Tomorrow is a new day with new opportunities! Wishing you all a wonderful evening… xo//K8
