We occasionally bump in to each other and the other day I bumped in to one of the project she had been working on, a book full of patterns to knit, all beautiful styled by Camilla. I think the pictures talk for them self.(foto:Kira Brandt and layout Sisterbrandt)

Eatable christmas dekoration. Make a necklace out of jellybeans and popcorn, just sew them on a string or decorate your favorite shapes with sprinkle, just glue the paper and pour the sprinkle on the glued piece of paper and let it dry. (make sure that you do not eat the left overs or this decoration)
On Sunday it is first day in Advent and the girls and I are going to a girlfriend of mine to make Christmas decoration, eat Christmas cakes and have fun. Maybe one of the projects could be salt decoration.
It is very easy to do, here is the guide: Salt dough recipe: 2 parts flour + 1 part fine salt + some oil + a dash of hot water. When mixed together, knead the dough until it is smooth and easy to work with. Make a good deal of dough. Roll out the dough and punch your favorite shapes, we did stars, mushrooms, leaves and hearts. You can choose to use a form or cut out the desired motif with a knife.
Important: If you want to hang them on your tree remember to make a hole in each shape before you put them in the oven. Have in mind that the dough "shrinks" a bit in the oven.
Bake at approx. 150 degrees for 11/2-2 hours Big things take longer.
When they have cooled of you can start decorate them.Let the paint dry, give them a ribbon and then hang them on your three.
Some weeks ago in the kids fall holiday, we went to the summerhouse. At one of our trips, we went by this nice shop, and when we saw these stone we all fell in love with them. Sadly I can not find the name of the artist.
Some years ago on a trip to New York I was so lucky to find and bought a big box of old buttons. A friend advised me to sort them in colors and lucky for that because they kind of came back to "life". Inspired by many of the amazing Japanese DIY book I came up with idea to make this cute neckless, made from old buttons and haba plastic pearls. Try and sort your thing in colors and see what you find.
