Gift Wrapping

This Christmas almost all our gifts will be bought second hand. Toys and books are so easy to find online, some of the board games we bought are never even opened. But this little gem is on top of all. It’s a photographed Moomin story built in miniatures and then put into a book. I […]

Nature scavenger hunt

Make and create

Here are some creative inspiration with a spring fling that I saved for later. I have more time than ever to craft and the inspiration is everywhere. These projects don’t need much materials and even if your drawers aren’t filled with craft supplies I think you can find some things at home to create a […]
