Butterflies in Sweden

After all the hundreds (maybe a thousand by now?) of butterflies that I have handmade over the last two years something wonderful has happened. Madeleine in Sweden posted a few pictures of what she did with her set! Amazing and so beautiful!! I am grateful that she indulged me and has allowed me to use her photos as examples of two gorgeous way to display them. Other people have used them on cards, mobiles, presents and even on the walls!

So thank you Madeleine for sharing and making my day!! She has the most delightful website that makes you feel like you are there with her in Sweden having a yummy homemade treat right out of the oven with her daughter "E".

Tack så mycket! :-) ~Kristine

New Etsy Items

It has been uber cold here the last few days! The inside weather station claims that there is a chance of snow this week. But here there are no clouds just 21 degrees at night and the most stars you can ever see! During the day it is sunny but only 14% humidity thankfully we have enough Labello and Nivea handcream!! So, I had some time to do a few little things...~Kristine
