Yarn bombed wooden sticks [D.I.Y.]


At this time of year (Spring in Denmark) it's not easy growing Spring flowers in pots outside. The visiting pheasants from the wild enjoy eating the fresh leaves and pulling the plants out of the pots.

What they don't like (I hope) is my "Flower substitute": yarnbombed wooden sticks. The patterns are supposed to look like a section of a flower seen from above ... (have a look at the bottom of this post).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

D.I.Y.


All you need is:
• Wooden sticks
I've used sticks from a willow fence from my parents garden
• Yarn
I've used NO.1 acrylic
• Scissors



This is how you start:




When you change color:
Repeat the start (A+B+C).
If you're going to use the former color later
on the stick, keep it underneath the new color (D)...


Have fun!

This is what my new "flowers" look like.
Photos of the natural flowers added to give you a hint ...


From the left to the right:
Forget-me-not, Pansy, Poppy, Daffodil, Daisy,
Pansy, Rose mallow.

What do you think?


And this is how I use the sticks ...

Like it?

Feathers of ice


When you think Spring is almost here you wake up in the morning finding "feathers of ice" on the windowpane - and you realize it's f*cking freezing cold outside.

Well ... the calendar says it's SPRING in only 4 days(!) – I rely on that! ;-)

Have a beautiful day, wherever you are ...!

Bohemian Books - Handmade notebooks and the love of paper ...



The past 3 weeks I've been in Paper Heaven. ♥ 

I've learned how to make handmade, stiched books and I simply L-O-V-E it.

Every step of the process inspires me, whether it's tearing/cutting paper, selecting colors and patterns, stiching by machine or by hand, glueing, or decorating, it all inspires me to do the next book, and the next one after that, and the next one ...!


Making a book is actually quite a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun!

A little bit of hippie and a touch of shabby-chic, a tint of retro and a handful of kitsch ... and all the colors of the rainbow. That's what makes my Bohemian Books.

So far I have made 14 books, all different ... all one-of-a-kind, colorful, and very bohemian ... just the way I prefer it!

I'm keeping the first two books for my own collection, and the other ones are now up for sale online in my webshop www.lilula.dk.

 

 

If you have a query on a specific color or color combo please don't hesitate to drop me a note. I'll make custom orders whenever I have the time for it. I ship worldwide.

Feeling the love for paper isn't new to me at all

Ever since I was a teenager in the 1970'ies I've been addicted to paper. By that time I had a lot of penpals from all over the World (once I had 58 penpals at one time to be exact), and being a snailmail penpal is kind of equal to loving paper and everything you can use for writing and decorating your letters: Stationary, envelopes, stickers, stamps, postal stamps, tape, markers etc.

I'm the kind of person who never really throw anything away (except for real trash ofcourse), and I save a lot of things "just in case" ... without being one of those hoarders you meet on TV from time to time (well, I hope not). And now I really appreciate the items I have stored away for all those years as the beauty of the stationary is perfect for my new Bohemian Books.

Although I already have lots of paper I can't get enough, and whenever I find new, beautiful paper I can't help myself buying it (if it's affordable).

A drawer full of ready-to-use-pages
for the Bohemian Books ...
Sometimes I'm asked where I find and buy paper, masking tape etc. and this is what one of my next blog posts will be all about. Till then: Thanx for following me, enjoy your day, and see you soon!

PS. Do you know you can meet me on Instagram? - and you're more than welcome to follow me @LLLogCo (LLL&Co)
