My name is Rebecka and I'm Swedish but I live in Italy with my Italian husband and our two children. My intention with this blog is simply to share my crafts ideas and projects and to get inspired by others.If you are interested in buying some of my creations or order something, please contact me!
I've chosen Swedish for my blog but you are welcome to write to me in English, Swedish or Italian! :)
This weekend we went to Pisa to visit my bonus sisters (my husband's sisters that I'm claiming as mine because I don't have any of my own...) and since we're going to Sweden for the holidays we celebrated a tiny, non-traditional Christmas together. Among some other things I had crafted these gifts. The hearts have a lavender scent and are made from scrap fabrics and hand made lace. I've actually made the cover for the notebook myself (I'm so not a scrapbooking person!) and the pens got a little pimped too to match.
The marmalade is a great and very simle recipy from the Swedish TV show "Leilas Jul" - marmalade with raspberries and chocolate. You Swedes will find it here and here's my Italian translation: (if anyone would like it in English, please let me know!)
Ecco la ricetta in italiano, scuasate se ci sono errori gramaticali o di spelling ma le misure sono sicuramente giuste! :)

1 busta di bacche surgelate (lamponi, fragole, frutti di bosco o altri) - 300g 500 ml di zucchero integrale (preferibilmente biologico) 100 g di cioccolato fondente di buona qualità, 70%
1. Fate sciogliere lo zucchero e le bacche (ancora surgelate) in una pentola 2. Fate cuocere a basso fuocho per 15 min. mescolando ogni tanto. 3.
