mothers day

Today it's mothers day here. The rest of the world had mothers day a couple of weeks ago, today it's all the Swedish mothers turn to be celebrated. We made our mother a good brunch with eggs, bacon, pancakes and smoothies! She is not a big fan of mothers day, since she thinks we should celebrate her everyday ;-) It's always fun to make her dinner, after all she has made us several dinner over the years!

I'm back!

yes, I'm back both from the trip and from the computerless world! And I have the most pretty little thing in my lap, a new Macbook! There is still some things that I have to learn and get used to but I love it!
Before I show you all the pictures from our London trip I thought I'd show some things I made long before my computer died. I've made myself two new bags! The dotted one is made with a scrap from a retro fabric I bought from superbuzzy a long time ago. The green and linen bag is from a FQ I got in a swap from Nicole/suessstoff in a PIF-swap!

We <3 to travel

Originally uploaded by Nifty loves crafting
I should have been back on Sunday but working all day made me tired...We sold a lot and I didn't come home with a single thing! Can you believe it!?

Today on my day off, I have a lot of things to do. First, I'm going to have my hair cut (finally), pic up my new computer(!!!) and meet some new friends. And before I go to bed tonight, I have to pack a suite case! Because we are leaving for London tomorrow night! We'll be gone for a long weekend and hopefully I'll be back on my new computer and lots of new pictures!

Have a great week!

Green is good too

Green is my second best colour!
Making these collages I've been looking through my old photos and it's fun! I made some pretty things back then in in beginning of flickr days.
I feel like making ATC's again and other paper collages. It's a long time since I last made some.

Tomorrow we are going to have a loppis (flea market) as they say in Swedish. So, it's out with the old and in with some new old...

I'll be back tomorrow!

the tail about the cat picasso

Originally uploaded by Nifty loves crafting
There once was a little kitty called...Picasso. Who live with his human mother and father. He liked them very much, or so it appeared.
But every once in a while he made them both very very angry to the point were they were willing to give him away!
Once there was the time when he was very tiny and climbed a tall tree and fell down. They had to take him to the vet.
The vet said that nothing was broken, just a bit sore. For that Picasso's parents had to pay a lot of money.

Then there was a warm spring evening when the birds sang extra high. All of the sudden Picasso was gone. His mother looked for him, his grandmother looked for him, Yes, even his cat cousins (that didn't even like him) looked for him. But he was nowhere to be found....
Until the next day. He sat in an even higher tree, not far from his grandmothers house. The birds had protected their babies by dropping their excrement on him, all night long. Even this time his mother forgave him and let him in the house again.

As every good story has three main events, so does this. There was a third time when Picasso had the urge to once again climb a high tree. He always fell for those high trees that he could not climb down again. But this time his mother was smart. Though, she know that if she once again came to the little kittens rescue, he would never learn how to climb down these high trees.
So, then the little kitty for the third time was missing. The smart mother located the little kitty by following the sounds of shouting birds. When she saw the cat high up in the tree, she simply just said: Now you come down here! Or you can sit there and think about what you have done!
The little cat looked with surprise on his mother. He had been sure that she would climb up the tree to take him down. But all she did was walk way!

The mother came back home and sat down to have her dinner. The mother and father talked had had a quiet night. It was not until very late that same night, that the little kitten somehow made his way down that high tree. And once again he could spend the night with his mother and father again.

I wish I could say that this story has a happy ending. But something tells me that the little kitten is going to climb a tree once again.

Hope it made you laugh because this is a true story!

My home & my cat

So now that I don't have a computer of my own I'll try to make something like this all week! Now that's a promise! :-)
Looking at this mosaic, yo could say that we have a home that is well planed both in color ans style. But that is not the fact when you live here.... I guess IRL is never really the same when you compress it down to a few photos....
My home has changed again but it will be a while before I can post photos!
The concert yesterday was great! have a look here:

Granny square inspiration for my mother

My mother is making a Afghan for the little baby that my brother is having this October. She has just started making the granny squares so I thought she needed some colour inspiration for all the little squares that she is going to make. I love all the picture I found here on flickr!

happy weekend!
