Making baking

I thought I had this great idea of how to earn some money. Me and Kristin are making choklateboxes for the christmasmarket. About 700 pieces to bake. And they have to look good. And taste good. And we also have to fold 75 boxes. I´m just filled with good (read:stupied) ideas!

Listening to this makes me feel better. It also somehow made me remember this oldie.

I´m back

I´m back! Coming week will be alot about preparations for next weekends christmas market. Yesterday was spent inside because of the heavy rain outside. Baking and making preparations for christmas.
I hope you are enjoying this weekend as much as I am:)

What do you think?

I´m taking a break from the blog a cuple of days to concentrate on Myrkott. Tell me, do you prefer top image or bottom image? (to see them bigger, just klick!)
Both still need some work, and at the end there will be just one. But I just can´t decide in which direction it´s going...

In my drawers, part 4

I Just felt an urge to step on H&M, so I made a rug from all MY bags. The process really made me thing about how much I consume and if I really need it. Now some years have passed and I think I shop less...

Have a great weekend!

Check out these fun sweded videos made at school last week (I wasn´t part of this project!) 1a, 1b, 2a and 2b.

Instructions for the helmet hat

Someone asked me about the knitting instructions for the hats. I scanned it so i hope it´s possible to read (For bigger, just click on it. it´s high resolution so I think you can save it and print it. The sizes in the instruction are: 0-3, (3-6), 6-12) In swedish only, sorry! I found it in the best book ever, called stora boken om handarbete. Best if not for the discriptions, so for the pictures in it. Go find it secondhand!

Interesting thursday

Today I was at a lecture with Lotta Kühlhorn. She is a graphic designer and illustrator that lately has been working alot with patterns. I like some of her workand it was really interesting to see her progress during 25 years.

In my drawers

A cuple of years ago I made these brooches (is that the proper word?) for the christmasmarket at my school. Looking at them now they are kind of sexy... and I can assure thats not what I had in mind! Still, I liked making them, perhaps time for a second round...

Hurry, hurry and buy Elisabeths great poster!

Gingerbread sunday

Today we made gingerbread biscuits. it´s a bit early, I know... it´s not even december. But it was fun:)
I changed the picture size, I thought it might do my drawings more justice. I´m not sure that the photos need it though... What do u think?

Happy weekend

This is me trying to draw something related to christmas. Right now it´s impossible. Give us some snow so I will come into x-mas mood! (klick for bigger!)
Have a great weekend!

Emmas great pattern

(photo via family living; redaktionsblogg)
The latest issue of Elle interiör was really nice. Especially this page with Emmas textile "stäpphöna" (produced by Svenskt tenn). And the vase from Ernst Billgren I wouldn´t mind either.
Today I´m not drawing birds, I´ll show you later!

rainy and windy

The weather is typical for Gothenburg, rainy and windy. I long for snow. For the first time ever I chose tea over coffee, all because of this rooibos tea with orange taste.
