Slowly but surely I am getting into the holiday spirit. I am cleaning the house, listening to Christmas songs from my lovely husband's eclectic collection. The sweet smelling tree is ready to be brought in and tomorrow my mom and sister arrive from Sweden. There is still much left to be done - gift gathering/making, cooking, and some last minute work to finish up. But I am getting ready to relax and celebrate the joy of the season.

As always I am already thinking ahead, planning new things for the upcoming year. One of the main things on my mind is to revive this blog. I am so grateful for all my readers and followers, and I am eager to make this experience worthwhile for you. Sometimes it is hard to keep up the pace in this world of instant news report, facebook posts, and tweets. What do you like to see more of? What can you do without? How can the blog become more interactive? I have some ideas of my own, but I would love to hear yours as well.

There are a few goodies left in the store. Notebooks, sachets, and small art pieces all make lovely gifts. Last day to order for Christmas delivery within the US is next Tuesday, December 18.

Warm wishes for a wonderful holiday season! May it be filled with friendship and cheers!


  1. Have a wonderful Christmas, and a terrific visit with your Mom and Sister! How very sweet!
    I love your blog as it is - especially your photographs! I know you have a lot to do, but I just wish you would post more frequently! ;-)


  2. I love those cute red candle sticks!

  3. I appreciate the calm, natural sense of your blog, Lotta. Your photographs are always well done and your writing clear. One of the things I like to see are 'process' types of posts. Keep up the good work - and merry Christmas! -sus

  4. Hi Lotte,
    Your post has reminded me that I have been meaning to write and let you know that the notebook I bought has arrived safely. It is just lovely, and is to be a present for a dear, dear friend, who I know will both love and use it. Thank-you so much for the time and care you have taken, it is clear in the work.

    As for the blog, I also love to read about the ins and outs of how things are made, as well as reading about the thoughts and drives that lead other artists to make the work they make. With my own blog, the thing that I have found, is that I simply write about whatever is interesting me at that time. I've never been successful in prompting much response from readers when I have tried to "direct" things a certain way - but perhaps that is just me!

    Very best wishes for Christmas with your family, and thank-you again.
    Warmly, from Amanda in Australia

  5. Love your blog just the way it is. Have a peaceful holiday.

  6. Merry christmas and enjoy the coming year!
    Hope you new projects and days full of imagination.
    Those wooden candles are so cute!


I always love to hear from you! I read every word and cherish every thought, even if I am not always able to reply back. Thank you for visiting.
