My first crafts fair

It's finally confirmed: I will be taking part in a local crafts fair next week! It's my first fair so of course I'm very excited about it! The fair will be taking place on thursday the 5th of July  between 10am and 2pm, in Badhusparken in Kungsbacka, outside of Gothenburg. So if you have some time off and arn't too far away, bring your friends and family and come on by! I will be selling an assortment of handmade crafts such as: cards, candles, matchboxes, photoframes, soap and wooden chests. If I can find the time I will also make some pin-wheels for the kids to enjoy. For more information on the crafts fair please visit the official website.

A sneak-peek on some of the photoframes I will be selling:

You can either use them as regular photo frames or use them to write a nice poem or sentiment in.

Give me your love. I'll give you my heart...

"Give me your love. I'll give you my heart..." those are some of the words from the chorus in an old Backstreet Boys song who I used to like a lot. The words that follow are: "Let's put them together, see what we can start. I wanna be with you..."

As some of you who know me personally might know, Theo and I are finally getting married this summer. We put our hearts together a long time ago and started a wonderful little family. The wedding is going to be very small with just close family. Anyway, since we settled a date my heart has been flying. In all shades of color that is...

These lovely flying hearts I made out of wool with a tecnique called needle felting. The hearts themself are easy to make but the wings are a bit tricky since they tend to come out different sizes. I'm thinking about putting a thread at the top so they can be hung but I still havn't decided on it. What do you think?

I've also made invitation cards to our wedding. We haven't sent them yet though so I am not able to show them here for another couple of days. What I will show you however is another wooden chest that I dressed with some nice papers. I absolutely love how it turned out!
