Where did this year go?

Time run away from me this year so quickly. I graduated, I fell in love, I got a job (not in a field what I studied tho), planned future and got my heart broken. Still more positive in a year than negative.

Again I find myself planning my future and life. For the past year I wanted to blog more about my life and stuff, but never got up for it. And also it seems very difficult to dig camera from bag and take a picture of what I'm doing.

So...Next year I will blog more and take more pictures.

I could start listing some hopes and dreams for new year.

I want to move to a different city. I have wanted to live in Tampere since I was 17 years old. But I will not just randomly move to there. I want to get a new job so I don't have to stress about money when I move.

I want to learn about photographing. So I thought I get some books about it from library for starts and then I ask some tips from a friend who has some skills in that department :)

I would like to find a new hobby. In best scenario I would move before summer and perhaps find courage to take apart in some amateur theater. Lets see how that will end up XD

And I will personalize the blogs layout, but that will not happen in a hurry because I tend to loose my temper when trying to create a blog layout.

Oh and because I'm now an interior designer I could do some interior posts time to time. I finally figured out what kind of interior style I am really fond of so I will try to change my home to match my dreams. If you are a tumblr user you can find my blog in here.

Have a very merry and peaceful Christmas!

Thor and his Mjölnir and Loki

Again for friend. This time to give to her friends :D  Sanna does my wool socks and I do crocheting for her. I was meant to teach her how to do these, but the patterns were not very beginner friendly.

Thor with his hammer and helmet. I did not have the time to starch the helmet, but luckily it stays in shape quite well. It was posted to UK for Christmas.

Loreal....because you're worth it! :D Thor became quite a princess.
And the pattern is from here.

Loki is travelling to UK in January so I had the chance to starch his helmet. And it was a must because of the horns.

Now he doesn't look that mean does he? I am going to make a staff to him also.
The pattern is in here.

Nesting for winter

I had some idle time and I have been eyeing my little white birdcage for a while. It was cute when I bought it but needed some touch up. Last weekend I was given a little book about felting and crocheting.  I haven't done any felting works really so first I will look at it as an inspiration.

It had an instruction to do a small felt nest/tent and a bird. We have a word here in Finland "Lintukoto" if I translate it it means bird home but it doesn't really mean actually that. It means a place that is small, cozy and safe place. A sort of happy place.

We are starting to have snow in here and woolly, cozy place would be nice. So here it very small size :D The nest is just first try and it is hanging just with small bow. And I stitched the carpet all around to the mesh floor. The bird cage is about 12 centimeters in diameter.

Commissioned gift for friend

A friend of mine Satu asked a long time ago if I could make her a pouch for her external hard drive. I had just then bought napkins from drift store and I knew it was the right fabric to her. But I was still living a slow time at creativity so the pouch was left at shelf to wait for a better moment.

Satu's birthday was at this month so I finally got a grip of myself and made the pouch ready. Little bit linen sash and some lace and it was finished. It has a thin wadding inside so the hard drive will stay safe in a bag.

I call this a proto type since I had some problems with the wadding. I am thinking of making more of these and I will learn how to make them easier.

Gifts for friend!

Hello again!

My darling friend turned 25 almost two months ago. We didn't see each other until the beginning of this month and I was able to give these presents to her. I can't take credit from these in any case. All of them are lovely ideas I found from the internet. She had asked earlier this year if I could make some crochet Ood's to her and so I did. This is the idea my friend send to me.

 And here are some cute jewelry I thought she might like. The idea came from here.

 This idea came from here. I actually saw this a long time ago and the thought stick with me, but I didn't look up to it until I had done my version of it :D So my solutions are a bit different XD Any whooo it works...kind of.

She seemed to be pleased, but I gave her full and utter permission to ditch them to trash if they were rubbish. I had fun at least :)
