Home sweet home!

Home again! Christmas is over and new years eve is coming up. We decided to just have a family night, play games and eat whatever the kids prefer.
Today we managed to drive from Värmland without the christmas gifts, the kids are devestated! Can´t belive how distracted by other things we must have been to foget to pack them!

Pre christmas

Today we celebrated with J´s parents since we are going to Värmland on thursday. I think mini rodini is by far the best swedish children brand (cloths) and the kids got some cloths and also very nice tattoos.

In my head

In my head I am already on christmas vacation. 
On thursday we are going to värmland. My grandmother has been sick this autumn and yesterday when we spoke on the phone I was able to have a real conversation with her for the first time in months. I´m scared that she might slip into non-conversation again before I get there, and most of al I am afraid of loosing her.

My idea was to blog this sunday evening, but what can I say, so much to get done before christmas! The market was great. So much fun! I had also planned to but my new trays in my shop, togather with my new prints. Perhaps I´ll manage to get that done tomorrow.

Tape2

The tape is done. My man asked me why I´m always working with the knife against my throat. I said that it´s just now that it is like that. He said no, it has always been like that and it will never change. I guess it´s true, my ideas often land in a very late state of the process, even though I try to work at once when I get a task, everything that comes out is crap and at the end it wraps up and I get the flow.
How is it when you work, do you plan and work and have time to spend at the end, or is it like me, always done 5 minutes before deadline?

Enjoy your weekend!

Tape1

I am working on a pattern for a tape that will be used at Julform (go over to the julform sight and check out all the nice things that will be sold at the 10-12 of december, look under deltagare). It´s a dream project ( I love tape!) but shit, it´s short of time!

Pippi Longstocking

Since our visit to Stockholm she likes Pippi Longstocking again. She even painted her face to get freckles. Considering how she looks at these photos I´m not so sure that she thinks Pippis is a sweet little girl...
One and a half year ago she looked like this in her constume.

Time flies when your having fun!

Today I had a meeting with one of the two artists that recommended me to sketch for a public comissioned art piece at a pre-school here in Gothenburg (It´s supposed to be done in august next year). Today was like a pre-presentation before the final presentation at the third of december. The meeting was interesting and fun, I realised that I had missed the situations when I can talk with other artists about my projects. It is such a great moment when someone really looks at your stuff and tells you what they actually thinks about it!  (I talk alot with my friends but it´s different to talk with someone that you don´t know.) I also realised that there sure is alot to get done before the final presentation and even more to think about. It´s a bit scary. I do hope I manage to pull this off so that I will get the comission!
