Inspiration: Arne & Carlos

If you're a knitter, you've probably heard of the Scandinavian design duo Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrison. They are perhaps most well known because of their Christmas book 55 Christmas Balls To Knit. They, however, do more than knitting. They pretty much do all sorts of crafting, from crochet, sewing and embroidery, to all sorts of other stuff like gardening. Just really cool dudes...they look like really fun to hang out with, you know?

I just recently purchased their Make Your Own Ideabook, and it was truly a pleasure to see their own journals and get a glimpse of where they get their inspiration. (Spoiler: Everywhere!) Plus, they also show step-by-step instructions on how to make your own art journal.

If you're into any sorts of crafting, do check out their YouTube channel. Here are some of my fave videos of theirs:

Oh wow, I had no idea you could make your own books, what a nice way to keep a journal nearby for when inspiration strikes you! :)

Hope that you are having a nice start to your week :) We finally got some cooler weather after our weekend heatwave, so I've been enjoying that!
