Itchy fingers

Did some small projects the other day in a medium I´ve been convinced wasn´t my thing - fabric, sewing, needles, threads...uhhh! But it turned out to be fun! I made little tanktops for Otto and my niece Lea and before I knew it - a quilt was half done! I hope it won´t be half done for long...

Sweden in full bloom

Delicious! Delicious! This is what we are waiting for the rest of the year. I want to drink the air!

On a swing

Our little boy loves to swing, but only for 5 minutes. He does nothing longer than 5 minutes.

Latest little project

This is something I´ve been occupied with lately. Little handmade patterns. Hopefully it will be my long-longed for card-project. Perhaps wrappingpaper, wallpaper, something. What do you think?

Old news

This is a three-year-old project I made. Photographing 10 different men in different ages (and sizes) as angels. The photos, wich were taken by and in supertalented Oscar Mattsons studio, were the base for a wallpaperdesign I made that you can see down here. I´m thinking about re-doing the design again. Perhaps just use them as black-and-white photos together with drawing. All suggestions welcomed! The pictures are a treasure. I can´t believe all those guys came and did this for free, out of just...having fun.

Two nights out

The time came when I finally could have a night out! Even two-in-a-row! I felt like a real hipster. Heels on! Vintagedress that finally, after 7 months accepted my belly. Shimmering make-up. I felt swell! Although...
I was home by 11 both nights. And while sitting in the bar I discovered the dress had baby-puke on it.
And I got blisters on the heels. And I found myself talking about my little boy and even showing a picture of him to the bartender. My god! But I felt swell!

Moving picture

Lucky day! I got a great music-tip by Catherine plus a great animated musicvideo. I´d like to lern how to animate my drawings. This really inspires me. Check out this wonderful animation to great music by Lhasa de Sela!

Itchy fingers

Lovely Eggpress had a movie made. As soon as M came home from work I showed it to him and said "This really makes me happy". The only thing that could make me happpier would be to do it myself instead of watching it on a screen. "I love that you are so nerdy" was the response. Watch it here. What makes you happy?

Studio Violets opening

We visited Studio Violets opening before going to the countryside. Elisabeth and i were classmates at HDK. Lovely work by lovely people at a lovely place!

Grandmas dress

My grandmother almost never saves anything but this weekend she showed me this dress that she bought in the old town in the 60´s. She can´t bare to throw it away. It´s from the north of sweden and my grandfather loved it. I tried it on and he went...Ooohh, I adore that dress!
Unfortunaetle I decided not to keep it, the wool was too itchy.

The summerhouse

Oh, the weekend was nice! We were out all days, cooking, building an animal-park for our little boy (it will eventually be a horse and a giraffe), hanging out with my grandparets. At night we slept in my fathers little boat-house. Its right on the shore and the best place to get a good nights rest.
