Making space

2 will become 3. I´ve made space for Mini in my workroom. Mini won´t need a room yet, so we will share. I´ve removed my fabrics under the bed. In boxes of course. Perfectly sorted after color. I also wanted more space by the walls so I moved our shelves out in our little hall in the attic. Compact living it is. And of course I have sorted out my sewing stuff and put it in boxes. I love boxes. As probably all nesters I´ve painted a bit and made a new cover for the babycrib. I will show you when it´s all ready. I still have the time. And some more plans. Next year. 

Thank you for following, for all your comments and inspiration. Happy new year! 2013 must be it.

Testing nesting

This was not to be a babyblog. And is still not to be. I´ve spent the last years waiting and hoping for this to happen. I almost gave it up. I´ve had a hard time reading blogs including babies, kids´rooms and cool kids clothing. It´s been a long way for us. Not just happiness and easy going. Now, almost in week 36 I must believe it´s going to happen for us too. This process has taken most of my time, energy and focus for quite a while. Now I´m nesting for real. So I guess there will be some posts about what I´m making for Mini. To be continued.

Sometimes things don´t work out the way you plan. And then all out of nothing comes something new.Like this. Trying to get a picture through a window.

Our last Christmas sleeping all morning. Late breakfast. Late evenings. Just the two of us. The biggest gift of all is still ahead.

Ready set go

Merry x-mas. Peace & love.

I´m going all crazy banana adding some color this year. Merry, red Christmas to all of you!

If you thought all bloggers had a shiny, sparkling x-mastree since october, you are totally wrong. We (or, my boyfriend. Grrrr!) hasn´t even cleaned the floors yet. And I do have some gifts left to wrap. So much for that "Oh, I like to be ready in good time for Christmas". But hey, I´m enjoying getting ready. Just adding some x-mas dazzle around. And most important, spending time with friends. Christmas will come anyway. With or without clean floors.

Poteito potato

I am also very pleased with one of my latest potato-stamp-project on baby clothing. Such an easy way to make your own little collection. Just cut out a pattern i half a potato, and dip it or put some textile paint on. Then go! You can see the result on instagram. 
Don´t remember where I saw this idea, but I know I´m not the first one doing this.

I like good-looking storing. So a while ago I tried to make some baskets from a shower curtain. And it worked. Just like the ones I made from fabric. I am so pleased with these. I was meant to show you pictures like "before" and "after", but I tend to use Instagram instead of my camera nowadays. So you´ll have to see there. So, by coincident we got ourselves a new basket for laundry in our bathroom. The shower curtain´s holes fit almost perfectly for the hooks already placed on the wall. I love when things just happen like that. If you want some, I have a couple of them left for sale.

I like it simple. And easy. I am not that patient, so I haven´t made my own. I bought some cubes to cut and fold, from Snug. They´ve been waiting for me. For weeks. This week-end I finally told myself to get done with them, and I even got them up. I plan to make a mobile for Mini from these after Christmas. Furthermore I´ve made some babystuff which you can see on Instagram if you´re there. I can´t bother to take pictures for my blog of everything I do, therefore Insta-followers can see more of what I do. Next I will try to get my new honeyballs up. Like on so many other blogs. But hey, I like them! And if you want to print out your own, check out this mobile made by LittleHelsinki. She has done what I plan to do.

It´s been quiet here. I can see that showing my home and my blog in the newspaper invited some new guys over here. Welcome welcome! I really don´t like showing myself of like that, so it was quite strange being in front of the camera and not behind it. But one of Tromsø´s best photographers and journalists were allowed and welcomed to visit our house. Iiik. Please have mercy with me, I´m not posting that often nowadays. My head is full of things I want to do, and once I´ve done some there´s always something new popping up. Today I had to give myself a go-slow-day. I woke up and listened to the wind outside, made the fireplace, drank some coffee, ate late breakfast and tried to get some sewing and cube-making done. As you see we have a lovely calendar this year. Made by the wonderful blogger dotty-love, who sent it to me. No stuff and things, just some very nice words for every day. Today´s note to self really fit our day. I´ve been a hormonal mess this week. Today I had to calm down and just try to be nice. Hope you´re having a calm and warm week end wherever you are! Calm down. Christmas will come anyway. I will try to remind myself on that too...

Friday is our dress/tie day at work. I also added a fake tattoo. That´s my way of dressing extra up. Tonight we´re having guests. I always like to start early setting the table. There´s more to come, but first some work to be done. It´s that time of the year, when all grades are to be set. Have a wonderful friday. Tomorrow we can sleep.
