Sneak peep

I really shouldn´t show you this but I can´t stop myself... This is an itsybitsy bit of Myrkotts new print, which we put together today. And it was so much fun! The Myrkott girls are so great. Check them out here: Angelica and Christin . And The other Kristin still doesn´t have a homepage, but as soon as she gets one I will leave a link to it.

Meeting at Sandbergs

Here is the drawing I started a cuple of days ago. Sorry that the photos are so small (from yesterday also) but the drawing is so big (A2) so I can´t scan it.
Today I was at Sandbergs and Talked to great designer Lotta Kvist. I will be doing a kind of Freelance internship there until the middle of november and hopefully I will learn everything worth learning about wallpaper and fabric. My project will be to make atleast five different patterns and they all have to communicate with eachother. The theme will be "gothenburg". I´m both exited and scared cause I have never done anything as big as this. I´ll keep you posted!

Autumn semester starting at monday!

This is my last work from springsemester at HDK and at monday it´s a new fresh start. I don´t think I´m up to so much color right now. It´s hard to continue where I stopped. And this is my final year so I guess I have to decide where I´m going...

The weekend

My mother came for quick a visit this weekend. She brought alot of mushrooms so now my freezer is filled! We took a trip to IKEA, It´s great for the kids, they have really thought about everything. I forgot to bring a diper but ofcourse IKEA had some for emergencys... It´s almost like going to an amusementpark, but better. And both me and V started a new drawing, her is a dinosaur and mine is whatever.

The gold of the forest

Not picking the chanterelle (they where a gift from my mans parents, they picked them) but cooking them and eating them. The kids was very exited about actually eating them, really pointing out that mushroom has to be fried before you can eat them. And they where good. Sooo good.

Yesterdays pattern freak

These days I´m trying to figure out everything there is to know about patterns. It´s really a great idea to work on post-it paper, you can easily see the pattern change in different directions.
In these photos u can see how morning turns into afternoon and then evening. And then final destruction: why did I have to put the birds there? Well, thats life! (and I´m happy it only was on post-it´s!)

This I like. Makes Timorous Beasties look like a copy cat. Sometimes it´s a thin line between art and design. But still, I like both.

New high-heels

Today I bought myself a pair of high heels. I can´t even remember when I had that kind of shoes the last time, perhaps when I was 18... But this pair was only 100:- so it´s ok to fail walking with them. My daughter loved them at first sight, so atleast someone will use them. They are really kind of summerish, so I have one year to practise!

I really like the pixlepatterns that Cristian Zuzunaga makes.

Lost in my mess

Today I´m looking for one of my moleskins that I´ve lost somewhere in the apartment. I hope I didn´t throw it away by accident! Making strange drawings and sipping coffee and feeling a bit down cause of my mess. Really need that sketchbook bad.

Autumn is coming

There is a smell of autumn everywhere. Some parts of me like it, some parts gets sad. But I do enjoy autumn colours.

Heart frame

I started this drawing in one corner (see my post a cuple of days ago) and after some hours I understood that it was some kind of frame I was drawing. But a heart frame, come on! I think I will fill it. To see it bigger, just click it.
Have a nice weekend!

Pillow fight

Last night the kids had a fight with pillows. They where jumping, laughing and screaming, impossible to stop.

I wish these where mine.

Rag carpets

I´m really a fan of carpets made of rag and it´s traditional in sweden. This one I spotted in the window of "Bohusslöjd" and I sure wouldn´t mind putting it on my kitchen floor.

I also like pappelina carpets.
I made this poster!
And just one last thing, last night I saw this movie. SO GREAT:)

This day

Today I meet with Pernilla for lunch and she gave me those nice lula crabfish cards. Lula: so many talented people in one website!
Then I finally sent in my scribble for the Telia competition.
And sent my man to get me more pens, right now I´m a staedtler junkie. And with new pens I could finally continue on my last drawing.
