#GRENEDIY

HELP THE SISTERS TO SPREAD
THE JOY OF CREATIVITY

Anna and Clara do all they can to inspire others, and the sisters hope that you will help. Use #grenediy to share photos of your creative projects on Instagram and inspire other DIY enthusiasts like yourself.



Embrace the season of
‘hygge’ and creativity

In the early afternoon, Anna and Clara are sitting at their kitchen table, enjoying a cup of hot cocoa. Anna is crocheting, while Clara is reading a new novel. They listen to the gentle sound of the rain against the window, which reminds them both of last autumn. ‘Hygge’, family and creative projects – these are the things which both Anna and Clara associate with autumn.

The idea of doing a catalogue with some of Anna’s best DIY creations came to the sisters on a rainy day like this one. After carefully studying Anna’s hands – which were as usual engaged in some creative pursuit – Clara suggested that Anna might share her ideas with other creative people in a catalogue.

The result is the creative catalogue you are reading now.

The aim of Anna and Clara’s DIY catalogue is to provide inspiration all year round for fun projects for arts and crafts lovers of all ages. The sisters’ appreciation of natural materials is clearly reflected in the choice of materials for the projects. They have chosen to concentrate on four basic materials: self-hardening clay, leather, felt and paper.

However, you will also find projects using yarn, beads, pipe cleaners and much more. Anna and Clara hope that you will feel inspired by their creative catalogue. Remember to use #grenediy when posting photos of the projects you choose to make so the sisters can admire your creativity.

We hope you have a creative time exploring our catalogue!

Kind regards, Anna and Clara
