Greetings from the North! Yule is upon us and Tis the season to be preparing oneself for a traditional Heathen celebration – Mead, meat and honey, family and loved ones. Be good to each other, people of Midgard. You never know what people around you might be struggling with and the gods knows that it is cold enough here already.

If you follow me on Instagram (@thevikingqueen)  you’ve probably seen that I will embark on my very own “viking clothing designer” journey soon. I will open my own online shop store and sell handmade viking garb by yours truly! Please have some patience with me as I am a full time student and need to focus on school for a few more weeks to come before I can even start this project. These irritating creative impulses need to be tamed for some time before I can finally unleash my inner beast -and go bat shit crazy with scissors and needles;)

Anyhow, I will keep you guys posted and announce the opening of the shop some days beforehand.

The best thing about Viking Markets is that you get to see so much beautiful craftsmanship. It is great fun to meet so many lovely and talented men and women who are willing to share some of their knowledge, and have a crafty viking chat.lofotr10 lofotr11lofotr8

Veiztu, ef þú vin átt,
þann er þú vel trúir,
ok vill þú af hánum gótt geta,
geði skaltu við þann blanda
ok gjöfum skipta,
fara at finna oft.
