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

What is your Hobbie?



One of my hobbies are to bake, love to make bread and desserts. 
A favorite is a bread I bake in the pan for Christmas and eat it with ham and mustard!!
Our new challenge over at Inky Impressions are "Hobbies/Sports" and
I use Angelica´s Yummy Goodies from the New Release in November.
Color her with FC Polychromos and and she glued on orange card stock with stitches all around. Behind her and the heart  I attach a ribbon with little heart´s on.
On the hearts have I've put some of her baked goods.
A corner die and the flowers are my embellis.

Hope you will join us in the challenge!
