For ages I’ve been thinking about getting the girls one of those wooden curved boards that kids (and adults) can work on their balance on and get rid of some of that excess energy, but just haven’t gotten around to actually buying one. So when Csilla from SaltyFun got in touch asking if I’d like to try out a Creatimber board she recently started selling in her web shop I didn’t hesitate to say yes.
Hi guys, it’s been a while! We basically dedicated a whole week to experiencing what it’s like when the whole family has a stomach bug and then the following week I’ve just been lacking energy to write. And then when I finally do decide to blog I discover my website has also gotten ill with a grave error. But that’s fixed now thank god!
I don’t know if it’s the spring that has inspired me to get my sewing machine out and come up with all sorts of little DIY projects, but I’m definitely enjoying creating things with my own little hands at the moment. I saw this easy DIY project on a colourful Finnish blog and immediately decided to try it out and share it with you, in English. Will try and keep it short and sweet, so here we go.
It’s Thursday and I’m having my first cup of coffee this week whilst Maya is asleep. A little Valentine’s Day treat for myself 🙂 Here in Finland the 14th of February is actually called “Friendship Day” and is a day when you give your friends cards or small gifts or just wish them a happy friendship day. So Happy Friendship Day to all my lovely friends out there!
Hello from a pretty damn snowy Helsinki! If you follow me on instagram you’ll know how happy I’ve been over the wintry winter we’re having here in Finland. After 7 years in the UK I am just appreciating it so much. I feel like I kid!
Just over a month ago, one day before the Finnish Independence Day, the much anticipated new central library opened in Helsinki. Myself, along with the rest of the city it seemed, had been waiting to visit the beautiful three-storey ship-like building made of wood, glass and steel – and we weren’t disappointed. What a place! Makes me proud to be a Finn.
