Fastelavn er mit navn...

I don't seem to have enough hours in the day lately... Most of my wake hours has been spend on making little costumes for little children around the country, mainly for a facebook group who supports single parents with very limited resources, but among them all a little costume for my adorable little niece sneaked in. My niece is a little over a year old and is going to be a big sister some time late this summer. For fastelavn (Danish tradition where you dress up just like you do on Halloween) her parents had a wish for her to be one of the figures from the Barbapapa series. 
Here is the intro for the series.

For my niece I chose the little green Barbapapa as I happened to have some spare green fabric from an old lady. I added some transfer print on the front, and voila, a pretty little Barbapapa dress for my niece.

And just because the weather outside is so absolutely stunning I am going to share a photo I just took moments ago of the wiev from our windows...

Valentines Day ;-)

Round here we do not celebrate Valentines day, or the danes has embraced the tradition, but in our home we don't. But that won't stop me from doing something love related in my creative life. So among the thousands, or so it feels, costumes for Fastelavn (a danish tradition where you dress up and do a little like you do in america on halloween) I pulled out a little Valentines card.

The Card is made from white cardstock, some cardstock from Panduro Hobby, stamps, a 3D card tecnique and a confetti window.
You can find the guide to the 3D effect here: diy confetti valentine card and the confetti windows here: 3D heart valentine card Thank you Ashley for your great paper work ;-)

My husband is in fact a live role player,and is planning a scenario for this weekend. During the scenario they are going to have an old fashioned ball with masks, so I made him a couple of masks. He is going to bring the black one, and when he gets back they are going up on the wall some place in our appartment...
