A Sweet Thank You

Today was the last day of daycare for my son. The ladies that work in my son's group deserve all the thanks they can get, they are true superwomen!

Having you child in a daycare is a very common here in Finland. As a nation with excellent social welfare and system it is both inexpensive and great quality of care that you get! It is for sure one of the things I am most proud of in our country.

These little gifts are our sweet way of saying thank you, it is not common to give huge gifts to the daycare providers, usually some flowers or sweets. We decided to go with chocolate bars, decorated of course! I like making these simple gifts a little more personal, add a little more value.


I used the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams -collection which I seem to have used for ever! It is a never ending collection for me :) 

First 50

So it all started in the beginning of April. British crafter extraordinaire, Suse, started a 100 days crafting projects, the #100daysofscraptherapy. The goal was to create something everyday and collect it all in one place, binder etc.

With great enthusiasm I went for it! And boy have I been happy I did! It sure did seem like a big task ahead and there have been days I haven't been at my most creative state. But still I have managed to do it for 50 days already! And I am so happy to continue on with the next 50.

To get an idea of the whole set, here is the video of the first 50 projects.


Aah, I just love to flip through the binder! All the random pieces I've made makes up an awesome binder!
