Getting ready for Hugglets

This is how it looks like in my studio these days...
a basket full of little ones



I´m working hard on the last bears for Hugglets.


This sweet little one is Esther
Ready to travel with me to London this weekend.
~
I´m leaving on Saturday
and are going to exhibit in the Kensington Town Hall on Sunday.
This leaves me with one day for shopping too.
I do have plans on visiting Portobello Road Market again
this time for some great old finds.
~
If you happens to be in London on Sunday February 28th
the bears and I would love a visit.

Visit here to read more about the fair.

Now back to work...
Have a lovely day

Petite Box Swap

One of my wishes for the the new year
was to participate in swaps
so when I saw that Heather from Speckled Egg
was hosting a Petite Box Swap I signed up immediatly
and went out hunting for boxes for the swap.
not the easyest part, I have to say.
Those Danish match boxes are NOT the same size as the ones is the US - ha
I had a suspicion about that though
so I added extra on the outside of my boxes


this is the boxes I made for my swap partners



and this is the goodies inside


in return I have received the most beautiful boxes
all filled with amazing goodies for my art work
Oh - How I loved the swap

This first Box came from Sue who blogs over at
my mothers pearls




wrapped in what looks like an old sleeve with vintage lace
and old buttons - and a very sweet pink heart
after all it was close to Valentines Day



and this is the inside of Sue´s box
a sweet old hankie, lace and ribbon, old buttons
pearls and velvet flowers...
so yummi

***

This beautiful red one was from Hope
over at Vintage-Whimsy



all covered in red with a vintage doll on top




and this is what I received from Hope
Oh My
tiny vintage dolls, old domino
all kinds of yummi stuff
I absolutely love if all and can´t wait to use it
well - I might not use those tiny dolls though
They are soooo pretty and have to be display in my studio

***

This fantastic box is from Heather our host

Looks at this amazing flower on the top
and the rest of the box ...



is covered with vintage wall paper
crepe paper and lace
oh - so beautiful




and the inside...
ribbon and lace, old tickets, tiny flowers
lots of goodies
and a heart box all filled with
all kinds of tiny great stuff




this is so amazing
and I loved being part of this great swap.

Thank you so much Sue, Hope and Heather
for making those beautiful boxes for me.

I hope you have enjoyed the look of my
Petite boxes
and now I´m off to hunt
some boxes in the right size...

just in case there should be a new box swap coming up ;D

Have a beautiful day
