Monday Moodboard

earrings by huismus

This new week started with freezing cold temperature (-20 c last night and -12 c this afternoon) and sunshine. I will make sure to have enough wood logs by the fireplace for sure.

The weekend was full of work as I attended a holiday craft market on Sat & Sun. Thanks everyone who stopped by at WeeGee and liked Karuski's table! Now I will start preparing for designmyyjäiset taking place in less than two weeks in Turku.

More moodboards on fleurfatale's blog...

Have a wonderful week!

My Creative Space

Craft fair preps are going on here
So many things I need to finish for the holiday market
Sat + Sun this weekend, oy it comes soon!

Here are pricetags for my table
I made them by recycling kraft cardboard packages
Round stickers can be removed so these tags can be used again and again

A few samples of gifttags I made. They are also of recycled cardboards
Paper scraps, die cuts & paper doilies make the vintage feel I like

What are you doing this weekend?

Shop Update + Celebration

Happy News: I'm updating Karuski's Etsy with new things
I'm also pretty busy with the holiday craft markets
first one takes place this weekend at WeeGee in Espoo.
Please stop by and visit if you are in the area!

Did you know Etsy supports now coupon codes?
It is quite great so I wanted to give a try too.
Visit Karuski's Facebook page &
grab a discount code for yourself if you like.

I just noticed I am 2 sales away from 200!
Next three Karuski customers will get $20 gift certificate each [sale #199, #200 and #201] from me!

Thank you everyone for being such lovely customers!
More surprises coming up soon...

I have lucky gift voucher winners now. Just got sale #199, #200 and #201 right today, Thursday!

Christmas Wreaths

It's been a long silence here on Karuski's blog.
Yesterday I finally delivered the laptop sleeves to Nudge.
I posted a few pictures of them on Karuski's Facebook page.

I'm now trying to get myself slowly into holiday mood.
It would be nice to have a door wreath soon!
Here are some lovely choices I found on Etsy.
[links on pictures take you to the origin]

Do you tend to purchase a wreath or make one by yourself?

Oh, and let's lighten lots of candles to make this dark season enjoyable!

My Creative Space

this project started a while back
now i am in the midst of it
cutting and sewing and fitting
karuski laptop sleeves will soon find their way to nudge
it is a lovely eco-conscious life style shop downtown helsinki
i went to see myself last week and liked a lot
it is not only about scratching the surface or greenwashing
they genuinely work in eco-friendly ways on daily basis
even the shop furniture was made of reclaimed materials
and of course, no sweat-shop produced stuff in this store
no rainforests cut down, either

wishing you a creative day, everyone!
