I'm baaack!!!! At least for December ;)

Hi all

Here I am again.....I know that a lot of you have been on my case for not blogging. I just have not had the time. But now I have the time and a really good reason.

That reason being that my good friend Anita (LilleAsk on Ravelry)and I have made eachother craftrelated christmas-calendars this year.
And we are blogging our gifts every day....or that is the idea ;)

So keep an eye on this blogg, and Anita's. To see what we have come up with for eachother.

Anita's blog is mainly in norwegian. But she always has a short summary in english at the bottom of the post.

See you on the 1st.
