Very proud of my sister!

Today I am insanely proud of my sister Stephanie! Yesterday she opened her own store (can you believe it, the two of us who have never owned stores open one each just days apart?!) in Gamla Stan, “Old town” in Stockholm!IMG_6119.PNG

Stephanie loves knitting and DIY projects. And she is very, very good at it! She felt that some of the materials she wanted for her craft where not available in Stockholm and therefor she decided to open a store with all those great items herself. IMG_6114.PNG

Makeri 14 is the name of her store as it is located on Köpmangatan 14 in Stockholm.IMG_6118.PNG

She also sells stationary like cool writing books and pens.IMG_6111.PNG

Some of the writing books are made from stone paper (yes, paper made out of actual stones – perhaps the future for our trees on this planet). The paper is incredibly smooth and won’t rip.

Japanese paper clips I didn’t know that I needed, but I do!

Do you people know what Sublime stitching is? I didn’t until my sister showed it to me. It is almost like the “tattoos” of embroidery. I took some images of the net to show you.

Stephanie sells these awesome embroideries in the store. What could be a cooler gift? Or project for yourself?IMG_6117.PNG

She also sells great DIY-tings for kids like these cute kits. Also perfect gifts!IMG_6115.PNG

Now who doesn’t love a nice Mason jars?FullSizeRender

And, of course, my Bag-all bags will be available in the store. Unfortunately they won’t be there until next week, but after that you will be able to get them at Makeri 14. Stephanie uses my letter bags for her different knitting project. I never thought of that use when creating them, but apparently they are perfect for that!!IMG_6120.PNG

Finally, I love this book with a quote from Winston Churchill: IMG_6109.PNG

Never, never, never give up!!!

Eggzactly! We are not planning to my sister and I!
