1. I´m having a crochet-collar-mania at the moment: since I started my crochet-journey, I´ve been going crazy with my crochet-hook and making many different kind of collars - they are so much fun, quick and easy to make and really make a difference...
Really love this one - been wearing it a lot:
Yes, I DO have a thing for buttons - this one is vintage from a thrift store:2. I´ve been really busy making something special with my mum for a week now... it involves old curtains from the thrift store, some new fabric, IKEA and 2 sewing machines... can´t wait to show you the result of this secret mission! :-)
great picture, but you get the idea:
3. After spending a lot of time (maby too much) on Pinterest, I was inspired to make a fairytale-box for my boys. You might be asking yourself, what that is? Well, since my boys are growing up with 2 different languages I´m always thinking of new methods to help them developing their language-skills - making them tell a story of their own really helps them and makes them use their imagination at the same time. This is how it looks like:
I clued pretty origami-paper-sheets on an old shoe-box (inside and outside) and something called "bókaplast" in icelandic (a plastic-thing with glue on one side, used to protect books - please tell me the word if you know it).
How I did it:
on the outside: on the inside: You put some fun things inside, and make your kids tell a story about them - you can use everything you want to, even words if the know how to read, shapes, numbers, letters, colours, toys... depending on what you want to practice and the age of your kid:
The fairytale-box helps your kids developing their language-skills, readings-skills (if you use letters or words), colours, shapes... what ever you want too... and the best thing about it is, that for them this is a game and it is so much fun to hear their stories! My boys really love this simple thing!
