Tiny raffia basket

With this post, I will start a separate series on this blog Baskets. I have made a lot of them, using different materials, shapes and colors. Baskets are great to decorate your home, store small things, and try to be organized 🙂 They also make nice presents. This one is made from raffia, which I also used to make…

Yes, holidays are here!

  What I love most about holidays is the endless amount of surprises, presents, lights and smiles! To make this even more special, I believe everyone should make at least one present or decoration or sweets – forget the stores.

A rose is a rose is a rose

However,…
