City Crafter Challenge Blog - Hygge

This week, at City Crafter, we'd like you to capture the spirit of hygge.  Hygge is a Danish term for creating a cozy atmosphere and enjoying the simple things in life with good people around you. You could also take inspiration from this photo:


For my DT card I created a scene using stamps from My Favourite Things and sentiments from Avery Elle . I used a patterned paper which came free with a magazine - sometimes I look at it and think it's knitting and other times, I think it's something like woven basket - but definitely something handmade. But I think it's the pattern that's causing an optical illusion on my photo - does it look to you like the right hand side tapers towards the bottom? Honestly, it's absolutely square in real life!

I hope you'll take up this challenging challenge -but first please visit us at City Crafter and see how the DT were inspired by hygge.

We have the same word in Norwegian. I often have to look up words for word prompt challenges, but not this one:) you captured the feeling of hygge so well with this sweet living room scene.
