Easter Cutting at Bakkehus Museum

Last Saturday we spend the whole day cutting Easter mobiles from old templets at The Bakkehus Museum.

In the early 19th century Bakkehuset (House on the Hill) was the home of Kamma and Knud Lyne Rahbek and a cultural meeting place for the authors, scientists and artists of the time; H. C. Andersen, H. C. Ørsted, B.S. Ingemann, N.F.S. Grundtvig, Johan Ludvig Heiberg, Steen Steensen Blicher and many others came here to discuss literature, science and art with like-minded people.

The house exudes warmth, creativity and broad-mindedness. And the cut-out event was a hoot!

Emphera Lucky Bags

I am planning to offer a variety of little emphera bags for collage making for sale soon. Each bag contains different materials like old original book pages, picture lottery pieces, ribbons, stamps, playing cards and such. Each one different, each one made with love.

♪ Fabulously funky Lukas Graham. Love his sound. Love that his concerts sold out in mere minutes.

Sunday Assemblage

Without gluing.


My favorite jewelry designer Hip Zen opened a beautiful shop in Copenhagen. Owner and designer Birgitte Nørgaard makes the most beautiful necklaces, bracelets and earrings, she is the sweetest person, and her shop has such a delightful atmosphere :-)

!! KAPOW !! ·*

... and down she went.
I've been sick with the flu for a whole week! Wednesday I went to work again, but after two days at the office I was forced to capitulate. Again! Back under the covers.

Through mists of fever, I've been sending craving glances towards my desk, which has been looking like this all week:

Alas! No making collage at all!
But now I'm feeling better, and it's time for rematch :-)

I hope you are well :-)
