You can call me Killer Bob

I just got done editing some photos from my photo shoot in Stockholm last week. I photographed such a cool home and like I always do I took some pictures of myself while I was there. Apparently this is what I looked like that day.
Yikes!

Marquee Light DIY

star3

This is a DIy project I’ve been wanting to try for a long time. How to make your own marguee lights. Once you get a hang of ot – it wasn’t that hard to make. Well I guess nothing is when you learn it- right?
A couple of weeks ago I explained it all on Tv4 Nyhetsmorgon. It’s in Swedish but you can watch it here.

You’ll need:
Cardboard  about 3mm thick – try in the store. If you want to make letters then take cardboard strong to hold but not too thick that you still are able to shape it without getting fold marks.
Ruler
Pen
Glue gun
LED lights – I bought light’s with small balls on top that I was able to remove, then stick trough the cardboard and then reattach them on the front. It’s important to use lights that’s not going to be hot. Like LEd.
Tape
Paint

The star is easy to make. I just drew a star – then measured each points and made sides that where equally long. The sides are about 7-10 cm high and I drew a line at the middle to know wehere to attach them on the star. The sides is for making the star strong but also to hide all the electricity at the back and to give it a great finish. I just glued all the sides to the star with a glue gun. Then I made random holes for the lightning. And at the end painted the whole thing.

At the back I simply attached the LED strand with some tape.

The kids wanted it in gold and red -  made it look even more like at the Circus.

Make really easy yarn pompoms and then a rug out of them – a DosFamily DIY

yarnrabbit

All the years I have been doing yarn pompoms by taking two cardboard discs and then filling them with yarn. This was very time consuming But this is a much easier way. I also made a rug out of them. All of this you can watch when me, Della, John & Nathalie was on Tv4′s morning show a week ago!

1. Wrap yarn around your hand. How more yarn you make the bigger pom pom. You can also wrap yarn around a piece of cardboard.

2. When you think you have enough pull a tread in the middle. You can pull it in under and between your fingers or just let the rolled peice slide off your fingers. Tighten with a knot.

4. It will look like a small bow of yarn.

4. Cut the sides of the bow – cut all the loops. Then the yarn will take the form of a pom pom.

5. You can always make trim the “ball” afterwards – you can even make it square.

6. For the rug I used a anti slip rug , that you normally place underneath rugs. The I simply tied the balls to the anti slip rug. You get the best results by placing the pom poms rather tight to each other.

Et voilà – this is what it can look like. You can also make it a square rug or in the shape of a hart or why not as a letter.

Life At Jenny´s House

dosfamily-change

Hi everybody!  (Imagine that this is how I say it)

I hope you are well.
Here are a few pictures from our loving home and also some conversation between Jens and I from today.

At the 8 o’clock  coffee:
Jenny: “You want me to go only so you and the kids can eat red meat all weekend”.

At the 10 o´clock coffee:
Jens: “Ì´m going to write a book about you one day. It will be my first horror story”

And then later after hours of ranting on and on about myself I ask “Jens what´s wrong with me?
Jens: “Last time I tried to tell you you got really mad so I´m not going there again”
