Some changes

I have moved the blog, so this will be the last post at this particular URL. From now on, you can find me just a simple shuffle step to the left, at carinascraftblog.wardi.dk. If you are reading this in a feed reader, such as Google Reader (which is the best!), simply add the link above to subscribe to the new feed and your reader should be able to find the feed. If it doesn't, try using this link.

If you are so kind (thank you so much!) to link to my blog, you may also want to point the link in the direction of the new URL for the blog. carinascraftblog.wardi.dk It is a bit easier to remember as well, isn't it?

Goodness me, it's taken a few hours to sort it all out - tinkering deep within the bowels of my webdomain, or atleast well beneath the skin! I've been wanting to do this for ages and I finally figured out how to do what needed to be done. And now it's good to go; although there are still some cosmetic 'issues' to sort out. But that shouldn't effect the reading experience. All the old posts have also been imported to the new blog so everything stays together - and they are staying here as well. So if you are linking to a particular post, the link will not become invalid.

As I said, I've been wanting to move the blog for a while, but I was finally prompted to do it because the commenting system I'm using, Haloscan, will be discontinued in a couple of weeks. So from December 26 it will no longer be possible to leave comments on this (now old) version of the blog. But you are of course more than welcome to comment on the new blog! :-)

Finally, if you need to send me an email about something on the blog, please use the following address in future: carinascraftblog AT googlemail DOT com. Of course, if you use the old one, I will still get your message! I'm just trying to make things a bit simpler. At least I hope I've made them simpler! ;-)

Hope to see you 'next door'!

Chair makeover

Looky-looky! Our dining table chairs are slowly getting made over. And I mean slowly. S-l-o-w-l-y. We bought the new fabric in Denmark at the end of April. April. Almost 8 months ago.

I recovered one chair 2-3 months ago and decided this would be a 2-person job. And we didn't get on with it until the start of December. But one chair is still not done. I wonder if it will actually get done before the year is out!

Still, 3 out of 4 chairs is not too bad. And they look a lot better than the original faux suede cover. Which is starting to look a bit 'used'. The chairs are from IKEA, in case you are interested. I believe it's called 'Roger'. The fabric is 'Magnificent' from Prestigious Textiles in the UK. Can't find it on their site... I've found it on another site though (with really bad pictures! The white background looks green in the picture. Ick.)

Scary creative space

Yes. That's my desk. Scary, huh? It looks like that on a regular basis. It's a wonder that anything can actually get done at this desk. But it does. I'd say it's more a sign that stuff does get done, because if I weren't making/doing stuff, there'd be no reason to have all this stuff lying around, eh? Anyone else 'guilty' of this kind of creativity 'pile-up'?

More creative spaces this way.

Inside & Outside

I forgot to show you, I got my little book, Inside & Outside, a couple of weeks ago. Love. It. It is sooo cool to look at your own pictures in book form. I can highly recommend using Blurb to make your own books/photo albums.

Because it takes up a lot less space than regular albums and if you lose it, all isn't lost, you can just order another copy! And they would make pretty great gifts, I reckon.

This is one of my favourite spreads in the book. Technically, I guess you'd say that the photos All Wrong. First of all, they are taken from a car, on a cloudy day with the wrong settings on the camera etc etc. But I so love the etheral, dream-like feel of these photos. Hooray for happy 'mistakes'!

Some people find that Blurb books take a while to arrive, but I think both the times I've ordered books from them, I've received them within or just over a week after ordering. Not bad, I think!

I have decided that I am going to make sure I take more photos of us, of the everyday and on holiday and all sorts. And then after each year make a book. As nice as it is to look at pictures on the computer, there is certainly something to be said for flicking through pages of memories...

Another favourite photo (the one on the left). It's from my hometown in Denmark. They put up this 'canopy' of lights in the High Street and it just looks lovely. Even when there's no snow, you can't help feeling a bit of Christmas cheer when you see that. Shame I won't be seeing it in person this year...

Muji Christmas

Perfect stocking stuffers from Muji. That tree is so adorable. If there was a Muji store nearby (as in doesn't involve travelling in to London), I'm not sure I could keep myself from buying it. It's so cute! Right? Like, really, really cute.. :-)
North Pole In A Box :: There is a Polar Bear in this. Nuff said.

Wooden Tree Large :: Frickin' cute!

Press Up Brontosaurus :: Flippin' awesome.
Historic City View Handkerchief Paris :: Wouldn't blow my nose in it, but hang it on the wall. There are also London and NYC versions...
