Happy Holidays

I baked gingerbread cookies last night
this time from a store bought dough
tiny elephants [looking like mini mammoths to me]
and cute penguins
these cookie cutters I found in Japan,
who else would come up with tiny cookie cutters like these!
Aalto vase cookie cutter is from Iittala store
it looked quite inspiring to me

Wishing a happy and peaceful holiday to you!

I'm now off to bake a date-carrot cake...
What's your favorite cake this season?

Bambi Pouches & Holiday Market

What's the best part of creating something new?
For me (besides seeing the end product) it is choosing the materials.
I made new bambi pouches for the craft market last weekend and I'll bring
these bambis to WeGotBeef's Holiday Market too.
New necklaces, bracelets and earrings will travel to Helsinki as well.
The market is open Fri-Sun from 1 to 7 pm. Warm & cold drinks available.
If you are in town, come to say hello!

I'm already wishing you a lovely weekend!

My Creative Space

How this week is flying by again!
I started playing with vintage ties [thanks aunt Maija for a donation!]
They will turn into headbands soon
I might not list them on my etsy
but bring them to my next fair in turku

More creative spaces on Kootoyoo's site... the last one for this year.

What are you working on right now?
