I had so much fun making Angels using scrap yarn and cardboard cones from Yarnia that what started out to be an angelic duet turned into a choir of six!

Meet Three Brand New Untraditional Dala Horses!

P1110792

Second week of the Dala Craftalong and here are a few little guys I have made using my very simple (and free) pattern for a Dala ornament!

Most of you who know me, know that I am big time into celebrating traditions, but often in untraditional ways! The three Dalas I am sharing are definitely not traditional! But I am hoping you will enjoy them and their stories.

Futuregirl Inspires "Snow Alice" - Newest Member of My Soft Toy Snowman Family!

P1110649

I almost let Christmas in July go by without officially introducing you to Snow Alice! You have seen her peaking out from the background here and there these past months, but you haven't been officially introduced.

Last July you got to meet the first member of my snow family. At that time, I believe I told you I was making several more to share in November!

Candle Wreath for Imbolc

P1090837

Just finished putting together my candle wreath to celebrate the very old Celtic traditions of Brigid's Day or Imbolc - a celebration that takes place midway between the winter solstice and spring equinox to celebrate the advancing warmth and light of the sun as it warms and prepares the earth for spring sowing.

The holiday is often marked by lighting candles, building fires on freshly cleaned hearths, eating pancakes, and planting seeds or bulbs in little indoor pots.

Getting a Head Start on Holiday Gifts with a Swedish Tomte

I know! I KNOW! Christmas is officially over!

But... it is not a minute too soon to start making gifts for next year. After all Christmas is only 342 days away, and believe me that is not as much time as you think for making holiday gifts!

My first 2011 holiday gift project - ornaments and small decorations starting with this whimsical little Tomke or Nisse.
