Invited by….”Playing by de Book”

Posted by – January 9, 2011

A few weeks ago I received and e-mail from Zoe, who blogs at Playing by the book, all about books and play for children, inviting me to collaborate in a post for the new section on her blog “Reading Around Europe” country Finland. She was looking for a couple of fun and truly Finnish craft/art/cookery projects she could try with her kids. She also asked me a photo from my blog.

I like Zoe´s blog, she is very nice, I like reading, cooking , crafting,,.. so I accepted with pleasure and sent to her a photo of a necklace for girls, a traditional recipe of the Finnish Oven Pancake ( in the pic below), and a couple of photos of crafts to make with kids… And the result was  a great post you can visit here or clicking on the photo.
