The artist's story behind the design

In an effort to create the most authentic looking illustrations for My Inspired Memories Scandinavian Collection, my desire as always, is to track down the most authentic tools to use as "figures" for my drawings. After completing my "Homemade Lefse Memories" piece, I decided the popular Scandinavian treat "Krumkake" was next on the list. Krumkake is a very thin Norwegian wafer cookie, served rolled into a cone shape. Batter is poured into the press and cooked with indirect heat by being placed on the accompanying stand. I could either purchase a new Krumkake iron and wooden cone mold or take time to find a well-used original vintage model. Without hesitation, I began the search. The first stop was to visit one of my favorite go-to antique shops in St. Paul, which is located in an old historic brick building, complete with creaky floors and narrow stairways leading to basement treasures waiting to be discovered. The smell of vintage is everywhere. I searched upstairs and down, this room and that. (An artist can get distracted and find many other wonderful items fit for nostalgic illustrations.) Well, I finally made the discovery. There it was, the perfect vintage Krumkake iron and cone mold for my illustration, worn red handles and all!

This is one of My Inspired Memories.

Features a blank inside. An open canvas to add your own unique memory for the loved one receiving the card.
