December has arrived

In my family we decorate the house the 1st Sunday of Advent. Willum has his own tiny tree from the beginning of December, filled with homemade Christmas ornaments mixed with @mailegworld accessories. His name heart made by my dear friend Ditte, is always a part of the decorations, I like to add personality. The rest of the house has a very simple Christmas styling, inspired by the Nordic countries. I love simplicity. The 2nd weekend of December we all go to London for Christmas shopping, it is such a nice tradition, which i hope we will keep doing, when we move back to Denmark one day… London has a vibe that I like and the decorations around the city during Christmas is stunning! I will tell you more about our traditions – how we celebrate Christmas eve – when we get closer to Christmas, stay tuned…

Craftsmanship

During the Wool & Yarn Fair in North Yorkshire, I had the pleasure to visit The Graduate Showcase, in association with Embroiderer´s Guild. It´s always a pleasure and great inspiration for an (old) textile designer to see, how young designers are developing today – I noticed that craftsmanship and handmade skills are still crucial if you want to stand out from the crowd – that brought a smile to my face 🙂
