Cards 2013

I have finally gotten around to making the page with all the cards I have made so far this year to match the pages for the previous two years. You can find it here. I will keep updating it after every couple of cards I post. As with the previous pages, this page will make it easier to browse my cards without having to thrawl through page upon page of posts. This and the previous pages are available in the navigation menu on the top of the page.


I want my blog to be a happy place, with the focus on various bits of crafting. Today I make an exception.

Today is the 22nd July, and I’m Norwegian. I’m from Oslo and have lived there most of my life. On this date, a year ago, something terrible, the unimaginable, struck our safe little country, and my city.

Today is a day for remembrance. The victims were many; they will not be forgotten. The scars run deep and will take long to heal. Yet, I have never seen so much love. It makes me proud.

The photos are from last summer.

I had looked to see what was happening at the show, without much luck. There were two shows in one; one for stitching and one labelled Hobby Craft.  It was taking place at Glow in Bluewater, Kent. Half an hour drive from here. With that as our starting point we took off, figuring that if it wasn’t as expected we could always go hopping in the mall instead.

Merely stepping into the Hobby Crafts section told me that we would be there for quite some time! The stands were packed together, overloaded with things to look at and stash to purchase. My wallet was already screaming Continue reading “My first craft show”

A new home

I had been seriously considering it for a few days, and it finally happened yesterday. The blog has a new home here in Lizland. It didn’t quite fit in where it was located previously, so I think this is a good change. I have spotted some competitions I would like to enter in, so it is nice having a site dedicated to crafting hobbies only, which is what this will be. Recently I have also stumbled upon some great blogs, but before I wanted to comment I wanted to have this blog sorted out. It is not done yet, though.
