I have been off from school and spending my time in the best possible way. With the girls – and with my sewing machine and fabrics. That is just the best me-time I can get. I have been making stuff for fun, but also a project that I wanted to participate in.
There is a huge national collection underway, to collect money to help children who are without mothers. It is a great cause to support, and a Danish craft magazine have made DIYs to homemade teddys, that can be donated to help the kiddies and help raise money. I have managed to make 4 little friends to send off later today.
I like doing things like these, even though it is just a little something, it still feels nice to be a part of something bigger. To show that perhaps if we all give a small contribution it will hopefully make a difference.
– And it is a good cause to support. I have no idea how hard it is to grow up without a mother, but my whole childhood it was the thing I feared the most. To loose my mum. Now being a mother myself, I cannot bear to think the hought of leaving my little girls. It easily turns into a horrible nightmare in my mind.
My sweet grandmother lost her mother when she was very young. And to make the story even worse, she got a stepmother that she really loved, who died soon after as well. Both gone to the dreaded psittacosis (parrot disease) that was quite dangerous on the Faroe Islands where my grandmother grew up in the 1920s. Sad, sad story, and even though my great-grandfather did all he could to be the best possible father ever, I am sure my grandmother always missed her mum terribly.
151 million kids are without a parent – or both of them! For many of them that makes life so much more dangerous. They could use help.
It is horrible that the amount of kids in need is so huge, and sad that we cannot save all of them, but I am happy to show my support. I hope lots of money will be raised to help kids missing their mothers.
It is been a little while, and I have not done as much with this blog as I wanted. I have been busy at school, with my Danish blog and with a lot of other projects. But now I feel like it is time to get serious with this, and so, I welcome you again.
My intention with this blog is to share some of the things I do at home with the girls, creative niceness, stuff happening in my hometown, and well, just random quiet life. Amazing stuff, really!
What is not so amazing, this happened to my beloved blender yesterday. Smoothie all over the kitchen. Sometimes it would just have been better to have some bacon for breakfast and not try to be so healthy!
Guess what this will turn out to be…
Actually I am not quite sure myself yet. They were supposed to be for some cute little bibs, but I gave up on the idea, thinking that bibs need washing constantly, and I am not quite sure how much washing this textile paint can handle. (Although my test-piece has now gone through the washingmachine 10 times without fading.)
So now I am getting ready to use them for something else that does not need super frequent washing. And I will keep you posted!
