Autumn fun with your child – creating chestnut animals!

I love spending time with Dianna outdoors – she is a true Nordic child! If it was up to her, we would spend every single hour outside enjoying mother nature’s grand work! She doesn’t seem to take note of the cold wind or even if […]

Movement is in a child’s nature How much of your time do you spend outdoors? Dianna is obsessed with the outdoors at the moment, and let’s be honest, at 6.30 in the morning, the absolutely LAST thing on my mind, is to be playing outside! […]

5 life-lessons I learned from my Grandmother Dora

Whenever I picture my Grandmother Dora in my mind – she is always laughing. She had the most wonderful laugh, so warm, full-bodied and inviting! And her eyes always laughed along too. That doesn’t mean she didn’t have hardships or experience grief – she certainly […]

Photo calendar DIY

Last year when I was on maternity leave (OMG I still miss it!!), I had time to make all sorts of DIY christmas goodies for Diannas grandparents and aunties. And one of the most popular items was this DIY Photo Calendar I made. It had personal pictures of them and Dianna from all throughout the year and special dates and birthdays jotted down as well! It was quite ingenious, if I do say so myself! And super easy to make (shyyy don’t tell!)

And although I’m not on maternity leave anymore and (free)time is scarce – I’ve already made copies, almost ready for the printer for this coming year!

(Family members – DON’T LOOK!!! – christmas present spoiler alert!)

How to make your own DIY photo calendar. Perfect as a christmas or mothers day gift or present. Just replace the pictures with your own, add personal dates and voila - ready for the printer! Holiday gift, present, grandparents, family, diy, do it yourself, creative children gifts, toddler presents, easy to make

I have always loved DIY gifts. There is something so personal and touching about receiving a DIY present. Knowing someone spent hours of the time, just to make me something…

My friend Anja is a master at this!

“Oh thank you for the invite – here’s my homemade lavender schnaps made with only organic, homegrown lavender….”

*jawdrop!*

And you know, best of all, I thinks she really LOVES making those DIY presents as well.

I like DIY as well, but usually I prefer if it involves my kitchen or computer! But since Dianna came into the picture, I’ve developed a taste for some of the “artsy” kind as well… so watch out for some artsy-fartsy DIY’s in the future!
