PIF- Swap

PIF- Swap
Originally uploaded by Nifty loves crafting
I'm in a new swap...:-) The pay if forward swap. There's a group on flickr where you can sigh up, you list ten crafting items that you would like to receive and the person signing up after you sends you at least five of those ten things. So this time I only made one parcel and I'm not really allowed to post about it just yet. I'm supposed to wait until the parcel arrives...but I can't wait...!
tomorrow is the last day for signing up for the august PIF- swap, head over here if you would like to join!

Tomorrow me and Picasso is going to the vet for the first time, keep your fingers crossed for us! :-)

Home made ice tea

I thought I'd share a recipe on some home made ice tea I've been making these hot days. It's one without sugar and other chemical additives and fresh taste! The recipe is really easy! I read it in a magazine a long time ago and then when I couldn't find the magazine again I just throw something similar together and it tastes great!

  • Make a pot of herbal tea (My choice was a Lemon and Ginger scented Chamomile tea)
  • Honey (add the honey before the tea cools down)
  • Fresh lemon balm
  • 1 Lime
  • Ice cubes
Let the tea and honey cool down before adding the freshly chopped lemon balm and lime slices. the good thing about this is that you can add as much/little honey you like. In my opinion if you don't make this so sweet is has a really fresh taste to it! Add the ice cubes on serving!

Let me know if you have another great recipe on ice tea that you would like to share!

Meet Picasso!

I'm going to be real quick here today, because we have a new addition to our little family:Picasso
He is the cutest little striped tiger I have ever seen! We got him yesterday, but he seems to have adjusted quite OK already! Here's a few picture of him, but if you need to see more you can always go to my flickr :-)

I feel like making some changes here on the blog, both exterior and interior. I want the blog to be a little more about my life in whole and not just my crafting life. Do you have any suggestions? Always happy to hear your thoughts!

seasonal fruits and wardrobe remix...

It's the berry picking season now, I've read so many blog posts about picking seasonal fruits and berries!. I too went raspberry picking the other day , with my mother and brother and now the healthy week just continue with raspberry smoothies and pies (made without any butter or sugar!) It's such a good feeling knowing that you have the fridge full of good healthy things that your picked yourself (I know, I'm starting to sound like a heath freak...) I'll shut up now and you can look at my pictures instead!

Hallon: Raspberries in Swedish
Here what we picked, 10 kilos! (5 of those are mine)
We actually went to the same place last year, but then it was raining! See here I even blogged about it!
Here's what I'm wearing! :-) Red wellies and jeans with a top! Go see it here, I want to post more pic of my clothes, I've recently joined some wardrobe remix groups over at flickr and found it more inspiring looking at real people and their clothes than fashion magazines. Maybe some pic will even go up here!?
