Christmassy breakfast

Every morning my son gets something called "grød" some kind of cereal boiled in water. This time I added some milk and funky pears cut in star shapes. 

I am really not into cooking but the bento wave is slowly catching up on me!  Little tutorial found here at obentotube.

And he loved it!

Pakkekalender II

This is what went toVisitsen for the Pakkekalender swap.

 She mentioned in her previous posts that the color of the moment was sth close to pink/pale purple, so I made some christmas tree decorations in these tones, wrapped in a handmade little pocket

I used a bag bought at "Søstrene Grene" and converted it into a pocket, so I had at hand a matching zipper and handles to make a matching bow 

The tutorial for the knitted balls is from "I like lemon"

These were the most challenging to do as I am not too good at knitting and moreover with two colors! I'm quite happy with the result :-)

Then I used an idea seen on the christmas issue of "Crafts Beautiful magazine" , a genius idea using wires of different dimensions !

And at last decorations made out of salt dough and covered with some paint I found in Panduro that imitates the effect of snow

Strikke Kurv

To continue with my recycling projects, I just made myself a knitting basket, to accomodate the knitting project of the moment, it also helps me keep some "order" on my messy desk :-)

I used some golden thick thread and painted the borders of the box with some golden paint

Pakkekalender I

Today is the day I have to open the present form the Pakkekalender game organised by Unikarina, and I have to say this time I have been SO LUCKY! A superb knitted shawl/scarf - I'm so impressed by the work done by Tineke, thank you so much!

Moreover it fits perfectly in my garderobe as I wear a lot of black, it looks gorgeous!
