Creating is what gets her through the long, dark winters in Norway. Julia enjoys letting her love for colour, texture and design come to life in all her products, be it in up-cycled sweater mittens, tote bags, knitted wrist warmers or anything crocheted. Julia is drawn to new challenges, which explains her wide range of products. This year Julia will again have Christmas stockings in fun and colourful designer fabrics. Each is unique and embellished with contrast fabrics, ribbons, lace and other types of trim. Julia is looking forward to two great days at the Christmas Market!

Come and see the wonderful array of handmade products Julia from Happy Me Redesign has to offer at the AWC American Christmas Market this coming weekend.


Wild Fire Foods is the lovechild of American Chef Jeff and Norwegian Janniche. He got some recipes for bbq and chili sauces from his grandmother, the chef of Joe Lewis the “Brown Bomber”. As tomatoes and chilies were the local foods of his Native American family, we also try to use as much local produce as possible when we handmake the products here in Norway and thus carry on his proud cultural heritage.

The design is inspired by the Native American food-giving tradition Potluck, where only the best food was given. We want to honor this tradition by making the products with the best and purest ingredients available. We offer bbq sauces, chilisauces, woksauces and spice blends. They are all gluten free, free from fillers and mods. The spice blends are without sugar and with very little salt. Taste is first, and we can’t wait to let you taste them!
