Personalized Advent Calendar

Make Personalized Christmas Calendars. (It's actually a hack and a project that's super fun with kids!)

With December 1st, right around the corner, I realised that I shouldn't hold off with one of our two Advent Calendars, this year. This one's for fun and a great project for young artists or to do with a group. This week we painted our own Christmas Calendars with Chocolates and if you jump with me below, I'll show you how you can do the same!

Interview with Anne Weil of Flax & Twine

Hello, November, you beautiful sweater-weather-month, you!  Soft, knits are exactly where my mind is right now. Are you feeling this, too? I want to dress in them and I want them in my house.

Boy, do I have the thing for this: I'm so happy to start the week off with an interview with my friend, Anne Weil of Flax & Twine. who is knitter extraordinaire and out with a new book.  If you aren't already familiar with Anne's work (like this bisous above), she is both a passionate classic knitter, as well as a finger and arm knitter. 

Jump with me below for more about Anne, her projects ...and, bonus: something special in Oslo, this coming Satuday!
