Greetings 2011, you are welcome

Hope you had a wonderful xmas. With lots of love, gatherings, foods and togetherness.
The picture below is a little look-back – 2010 in twelve photos; one from each month. I had forgotten most of them, or in my mind placed them in different months. The year is long, but time's short. Better enjoy it :-)
Making this recollection had me thinking of the things that happened this year, and soon I found myself looking curiously at the possibilities for the year to come. I've never been much of a resolution-maker, but I love dreaming up those fluttering images of what could lay ahead. Fluttering and out of focus, 'cause we don't know. Anything really, of what may come ...

Which brings me here; to welcome you, 2011, with what you may bring. I'll do my best to refrain from judging good or bad, but try to simply greet each day with an open mind.

Happy New Year!

It's a particular white December this year. Frosted silence of early morning humbles me.

Tracey's gorgeous cloud brooch
and the cloud's sisters and brothers :-)

Floor Art

Thank you for participation in the giveaway :-) And thank you for your sweet comments.
Remember there's still time to enter - I'll draw a winner Tuesday Morning-ish.

It's been snowing here again (the trees look so pretty) and looking down in the Copenhagen Metro yesterday – so did the floor there! What a wonderful little piece of art we made, with our snowy boots and dirt from the streets.
I instantly found myself looking for figures in there. Do you see any?


A few new (to-me) blogs: Joanne, Creature Comforts, Memi the Rainbow, Kena + her cats :-)
A series of xmas sweets (in Danish), and a funny ad :-)

Ah - what the heck! Let's have a song as well. My old and dear friend gave me Annie Lennox' new xmas cd. It's beautiful. God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman (I love the old-postcardy video as well :-))

Have a swell weekend :-)

Hello again :-) I wish you jolly Tuesday.

As promised; a corner of what I'm making for this year's xmas cards :-))

And as promised, a


... and then it struck me - maybe it's too late? I mean – it is sort of xmassy, and if you live anywhere but in Denmark, the date for mailing it in order for you to receive package before xmas is way overdue. Uh-oh. Will you play anyway? I hope so. It will keep just fine for next xmas :-)

If you want to participate, please leave a comment before Monday 20th, I'll draw one crocheted ... item :-) ... using, and sent it quickly! December really jumped out of no-where this year (too) :-) Sorry I wasn't in better time.

(hey, what's with all the secrecy? –well, I am sending out the cards this week, and want the thingies to be a surprise :-)

Before you go; recently discovered lovely blogs: annekata and Valerie (via Pinterest - oh the loveliness. Valerie's pin board)

Hi! My name is Inbetweener

That's me. Inbetween myself today. I woke up today thinking I didn't even know me. I was grumpy, moody, downright unpleasant to be around. Where did that come from? I ask of you. You don't have to answer. I'll just sit this one out...

It's aftenoon now, and fortunately I feel the grumpiness fade a little, but let me for the moment share a list Grumpy Grumpysson made this morning:

Things to avoid today:
· Making any kind of decision
· Going to business meeting with new client
· Writing emails
· Answer telephone
· Thinking about any of the following: xmas presents, deadlines, excercise.

(I didn't avoid many of these, but I quess I did okay ... ;-)
U2 said it good :o)

Photo is from last week (remember I borrowed friend's camera?)
Tomorrow I'll post sneak peak of crocheted xmas cards, and have a little giveaway :-)

Flaky ;-)

Inspired by Martha Stewart, I made these marshmellows :-)
Tina and I meet up some times and cook and take pictures - these are from a day like that, and this cup is thus shot by Tina :-)

And cut snowflakes from tissue paper.
Feelin' flaky now ;-)

There are recipes and more pictures at Clemmensen & Brok
Oh no! Yesterday was Tuesday. List it Tuesdays!!! I'm so bad at this.
The week is too fast for me.

Tree post

Thank you for your kind comments :-) I wanted to take some pictures of the xmas card crocheted today, but man! the light is there, and bam! it's not. Days are so short this time of year. And I neeed the light to take pictures.

Ah well. Midst the few hours of light – and the beauuutiful sunshine we had, I went for a walk, but forgot the camera :-) I borrowed my sweet friend's phone (thanks, V), and took three pictures (or was it four?). Anyway, as I remembered, one of them was this:

at least how I remembered :-)
It was a gorgeous walk.

Did you see Geninnes fantastic wallpaper for download? Plus her new products for Galison.
I just love her work!
