I think Pinterest is great. It´s better than reading blogs. So quick. So many ideas. Like the other day I saw a woman´s (mkkmoen) baking babushkas filled with candy. Why haven´t I thought of that earlier? I have them too. Hid in a kitchen drawer. But not any more. I have brought them into the light in our livingroom. I have camouflaged my candy. Yeah. I love when I get inspired by others. To find my own stuff and use it in new ways.

All my childish interior stuff are coming out of their hiding spots, from closets and shut doors. I´ve gone through different interior periods in my life. Now these childish things finally will get the honor they deserve. I´ve had periods where I stitched towels and nice fabrics to canvas. But didn´t quite like having them around all the time. Now they´re hung on walls. It feel like the right time for it. I also read once that it´s good feng shui or karma to add some childish stuff around in your interior if you want to get pregnant. So that the child will feel welcome and want to grow in your belly. Maybe that´s what have happened here? Hm. You can also see my first nesting project on the bed. I made a big, old (one of my favorite retro fabrics) bed sheet smaller so that Mini can have it.
One of my first DIY projects I guess was a big canvas with textile from Marimekko, which I have changed the fabric on lots of times. Now I had to find a place for the big dotted one, it´s been in our hall on the floor for a year maybe. And all of a sudden it hit me- behind the bed! Yes. And then, all out of nothing- we had a headboard for our guest bed. I felt so smart. And glad my head still works.

It happens every january up here: the return of the sun after two months of darkness. I tend to get more energy then. And a need for color. So I have changed the copper lamp for my old spraypainted one, and found a Flensted mobile I had forgot all about. I also have to get tulips every week end. I´m in love with this beautiful light we get to have a couple of hour. So I guess I´ll have to have tulip-budget this year. Furthermore things are getting up on walls, moved around and tested in new places. That´s how I spend my time waiting.

I´ve been working on this mobile for months. In my head. I made the cubes for christmas and hung them in our window. Now I finally got to hang them in our bathroom as planned. I found this on Pinterest and used it for inspiration when making a base from chopsticks. I used invisible thread for hanging since I don´t know if it´s a boy or a girl. I bought the cubes from Snug and the mountain and box are printed from Minieco. Offcourse I have folded them myself. And that combined with see- through thread, trying to get the mobile stable, isn´t a pregnant woman´s friend. But now it´s up. Together with our new bag for laundry which I made from an old shower curtain. We needed to do some rearrangements in our bathroom for Mini. Now I hope he/she will come soon. I have no more things to make, move around or do. I´m bored. Almost going crazy. Moving postcards from one wall to another. Changing lamps. Lol. Luckily I do have yoga.

Waiting. Just waiting. Spending a lot of time on the coach. Looking around. Wanting to change something. Add. Remove. Paint. Something seems to be wrong with our dining-part of the livingroom. Such a nonimportant detail. Almost making me mad. So after some advice on instagram I added a mat under our table. And Elkika made a dripping area to our big wall art. Yeah. So much better. Those hormones!

They say it´s good to sum up before moving on. So I´ve had a look over my shoulder, on 2012. I appreciate every moment spent with good friends and family.
