Hello hello!

I’m going to Africa in a week! WOW!!! I just found out! It’s an internship I thought I had no change of getting, so it’s a bit sudden to say the least. But I got it, and I’m going! It’s an amazing opportunity!

So, this week’s going to be hectic since, well, moving to another country for two months takes some smuferation.

It’s a summer of luck, this summer! There are just so many amazing things happening that it feels like my metaphoric pot is bubbling over! I’m going to try to finish out the remaining posts for the REPROCAT collaboration project, before I leave, but all i can promise is that I’ll try my best.

Collaboration for Reprocat No. 1: Instructions- Feels Like I’m 17 Paracord Bracelet

Hello Hello!

Last week as fairly busy, and I’m so glad it’s over! But while I was away from the blog, N and I have been working on our first project (!!!), so I’ll start out by describing the initial details and instructions to this project:

Collaboration for Reprocat No. 1 is the result of a discussion about that N was going to get one of her nephews who is turning 17 soon. Everyone knows that the best thing to give a teenager is money, but since N and I are both pretty low on cash we realized that an envelope containing a mere SEK200 would be an anti-climactic present at best. So I pitched the idea of making him something cool for the same amount of money instead…

My task [skeptically given by N]: come up with something cool & inexpensive to me for N’s nephew.

Some information on the nephew: will turn 17, is fashion conscious, takes care of his appearance, plays football, is a fan of Manchester United, is a fan of sports in general, listens to among other skrillex, is popular with the girls, does crazy things while on field trips with his friends, likes brand name clothes.

I take no credit for any of these images, they all belong to someone else, i just don't know who!

After thinking about it a little while, I remembered how a friend’s brother of roughly the same age was admiring said friend’s paracord bracelet a few weeks ago.

It is a good guy jewelry as it fits as an accessory for a guy who cares about how he looks since it is comfortable, non-obtrusive and above all non-girly. Paracord is connected with the idea of manliness, sportiness, and even edginess. And with the right color and knotting style it can turn out to be a perfect little everyday bracelet.

For N the advantages are that the materials are inexpensive, it’s simple to make, and there are many knotting techniques for her to explore.

Stay tuned for my next post, where I compile an idea board with research & inspiration to help us chose the colors and knotting styles.  🙂

For The Win!

Hello hello!

You may be wondering: what in the world happened to this site?!

Don’t click away just yet, I’ll explain. Remember that some days ago I talked about an exciting hobby collaboration with a friend?
Well, we’re making it happen! Now! Today! Yay! 🙂

REPROCAT is the tag that N. uses to mark her handmade projects, and since we’re going to be making things for reprocat, it seemed like a book idea to inclue it here! Isn’t it adorable?

Speaking of adorable:

We’re just two little cats, from Västerås! We live with the wrong type of human… he’s allergic and can’t be with us, so we ask for you to click to see a video that will steal your hearts! we will steal your hearts! *to be sung to the tune of “Two Little Girls from Little Rock”*

 

 

Felt Like Buying

Oh my God! Yes, yes you may take my money, even though I don’t know an Iphone, Ipad, Kindle etc to use you for!

Starved for a present idea to for anyone– i mean anyone, even the grumpy old mad that threatens to cane you if you don’t get off his lawn– for any reason? Here you go: Etsy shop ohmycake! I must warn you though that there is a high risk that you’ll buy a bunch of stuff and end up not giving them to anyone and keeping them to yourself instead!

Here is a little tasty taste:
