What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 81

As you can see, nothing happens here :)

But I took some pics outside about 9am. It´s the darkest day of the year! They are taken with flashlight and I like that effect of falling snowflakes with flash. A lot of snow - and more is coming...

Julia, you was right with the time difference! When you are posting at 6am, our clock here in Finland is already 8! :)

Happy WOYWW to everybody! More workdesks on Julia´s Stamping Ground!

This week I´m in time - but I didn´t find any WOYWW on Julia´s blog???

EDIT:Now it´s there!!!

But, nevertheless, here is my workdesk early this morning! I made some Christmas ATCs yesterday, and this is how I left it...

...almost ready ;)

Muutamia kuvia viikonlopun korttitapaamisesta Järvenpäässä. Valokuvia ei tullut paljon otettua - oltiin niin innoissamme kortteinemme :)

Some pics from weekend´s card meeting. Didn´t take much pics - we were so enthusiastic with our cards :)

Lähdössä ensimmäisenä päivänä / to leave on the first day

WOYWW - at last!

I wasn´t at home yesterday. So my WOYWW-picture is taken in the evening. There you can see the new fabrics I bought.


Joulumessuilla vieressäni Milja myi ekologisia - ja kauniita - siivousrättejä, sekä itse värjättyjä eko-lankoja, joista voi itse neuloa tai virkata omat keittiörättinsä.

En voinut vastustaa kauniita lankoja ja ensimmäinen "mummoruuduista" virkattu rätti on jo valmiina! Lanka on valmistettu vaatetusteollisuuden jätemateriaalista ja pitää sisällään 60% hamppua ja 40% puuvillaa. Hamppu on bambun tapaan luonnostaan antibakteerinen, eikä rupea haisemaan!

Lankaa ja rättejä myy Kierti.

In the Christmas Fair Milja, in next table, was selling ecological - and beautiful - cleaning cloths, and self dyed eco-yarns, from which you can knit or crochet your own kitchen cloths.

I couldn´t resist the beautiful yarns and the first kitchen cloth crochetted from "grannysquares" is ready! The yarn is made from garment industry´s waste material, and contains 60% hemp and 40% cotton. Hemp, like bamboo is naturally antibacterial, and does not begin to smell!

Yarn and cloths are sold by Kierti.


Tässä muutama kuva pöydästäni Naisten Joulumessuilta. Kuvat on otettu ennen messujen alkua, paitsi viimeinen, jossa jo näkyy messuvieraitakin.

Some pics of my table from Womens Christmas Fair. Pics are taken before the fair, except the last one, where you can see visitors, too.

Korut ovat tyttäreni. Niitä saa Backstage Beautysta.

Jewelleries are my daugter´s from Backstage Beauty.

Ystäväni Jonna Hieno Hilmasta laittelemassa pöytäänsä.

My friend Jonna from Hieno Hilma to make her table.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 78

Last pic before the craft fair... today is the building day!

And I´m so sorry, sorry, sorry I still have no time to visit your blogs :(

I´ll show you more pictures from the fair later. Have a nice WOYWW!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 77

Still busy working! I´m making items to sell in Women´s Christmas Fair in Helsinki in december 2.-6. (a traditional fair since 1922 - there are sold only handicrafts made by women)
As you can see, my workdesk is not so bad - but the chaos is surrounding me :D
And my orchids bloom!

Other workdesks you will find here!

Olen tekemässä myytävää Naisten Joulumessuille Helsingin Wanhaan Satamaan 2.-6. joulukuuta.
Työpöytä ei nyt ole kovin pahassa kunnossa, mutta kaaos on siirtynyt ympäristöön :D
Ja orkideat kukkii!

Lisää keskiviikkoisia työpöytiä löydät täältä!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 76

Hi all! It has been a very busy week - and three more are ahead! So I´m still sorry that I have no time to visit your blogs!
But here are my WOYWW pictures :)

Last week I started with the reflector tape - or in fact stripes of a reflector cloth. And you were wondering what was I doing with it. So here you can see the result! These are reflectors which you can hang to your coat or your bag when you go out during the dark time. They are compulsory here in Finland. However, these are outside from all the standards :D

First picture shows my desk as I left it last night. Then I took some pictures with flash, so you can see how the reflector works. And then a close-up!

Have a nice WOYWW-day!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 75

Wednesday and new WOYWW! I have a new project with reflectors. Those gray stripes are reflector cloth. I´ll show you later what I´m doing with it - more bunnies, you know :) - but also cats and frogs. But you will see later!

In the other picture there are my bags, which are now almost ready. That last one on the top still needs something...

And I have to apologize that I have not much time to visit your blogs... but I try to make some visits!

Sunday Postcard Art has the theme ´Hats´n crowns´. My card is still a bit dark! I started with a colourful crown, but ended with a crow...

Viime viikolla Pia toi minulle vanhan muovisen nappilaatikon, jonka hänen anoppinsa oli halunnut minulle antaa. Siitä suuri Kiitos! Napit ovat aina tarpeeseen, mutta myös itse laatikko houkutteli tekemään jotain... tässä sitten on nähtävillä muodonmuutos: kuvat ennen ja jälkeen!

Last week Pia brought me an old plastic button box, which her mother-in-law wanted to give to me. Big Thank for that! The buttons are always to the need but the box itself also persuaded to do something... and here you can see the transformation: pictures before and after!

Time to WOYWW again! More bunnies, but bags this time. These are going to Galleria Karaija, when finished.In these bags I have used small tablecloths and other laces I have found from flea markets.
First bag is now on my desk and other nine are waiting behind my back...

And... what a great surprise when I looked my blog this morning... I´ve got a message from Bleubeard and Elizabeth. She (they) has chosen my blog as "Today´s blog"! What a honour! Please, visit Elizabeth, too! There are wonderful projects on her blog ´Altered Book Lover´ - and meet the absolutely gorgeous Bleubeard!

This week has been really bewitched - where has all the time gone??? But I caught one Witch and now I´ll put her to the Sunday Postcard Art challenge!

torstai 28. lokakuuta 2010


Compendium of Curiosities Challenge´s theme for this week is Extreme Masking. I made my own masks, even though the plastic was not the best possible! But, after all, here´s my tag!

keskiviikko 27. lokakuuta 2010


Vikke laittoi Koukussa Kortteihin sivustolla kiertämään ´Tuntematon Sotilas´ pelikortit, joista on siis tulossa deco.
Tässä minun osuuteni siihen - kortit ennen ja jälkeen!

Vikke started a deco made on ´Unknown Soldier´ playing cards.
Here are my cards - before and after!


Today my workdesk looks like this! All bunnies and frogs have left home! I´ll put here also the last group-photo...
Now I have been working with two cards to an altered playing card deco. You can see those cards on my desk, but I will post better pictures of them, too!
Thanks for visiting! Have a nice WOYWW day!

maanantai 25. lokakuuta 2010


Nyt toi posti minullekin kortit, jotka sain Koukussa Kortteihin ´Alice in Wonderland´ kymmenen kortin ATC-vaihdossa! Minun tekemäni ovat täällä.

Now arrived those cards I got from ´Alice in Wonderland´ ten cards ATC-trade! Those I made are here.
