Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

8 – parrots and candy

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Here´s a little parrot to brighten your day 🙂 Freestyle machine embroidery parrot on salmon-colored dupione silk. Today the advent activity calendar simply says: Make Christmas candy Marzipan, caramel, chocolate… all the yummyness you can think of! 🙂

7- magnets and MOO

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Tonight´s little evening-project was making mini-magnets. Using half glass-marbles, Moo-cards of my textile art and mini-magnet and some super-glue they were done in no time at all 🙂 It´s so easy to do, and with endless options to the motifs. You can make personalized magnets for friends and family. Talking of MOO-cards… my Christmas-cards arrived […]

6- pearls and peas

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

You know, I´m probably doing this all wrong. I mean, showing all the Christmas-presents as I make them. Some of the receivers are probably reading my blog every now and then… I just can´t keep a secret, I guess. Not a creative one, anyway. So here is my latest gift. A 50s inspired necklace in […]

4 – lights, beads and give-away

Sunday, December 4th, 2011

Today is the second Sunday in advent, and I want to start the day with a photo of my advent-lights. Purple is the advent-color, and I´ve mixed it with browns and reds. Using edibles like red cabbage, red onions, walnuts, chilies, cinnamon-sticks and granade-apples(?) I made this table-decoration. One of the candles has a vanilla-scent, […]

3 – Lulu and the color of love

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Congratulations to Lulu and Rob! Today is their big day! Lulu is one of my dear Arting-friends, and she´s getting married today. Which is why I made this colorful & whimsical gift for her. It´s a freestyle applique and machine embroidery cushin-cover. Lots of vibrant and bright colors are what remind me of Lulu. The […]

2 – cushions and books

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

I told you yesterday that our baby wanted a “to-do”- advent calendar. Well, she made one for us too. And my task for today was to get started on the Christmas gifts. I have already started, but I´m taking the assignment seriously, and made some more: Another couple of Christmas gifts are ready. I´m sure […]

1 – Advent calender booklet

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Our baby wanted a “Things-to-do-and-make”-calender this year, instead of a more common things-or-chocolate calender. So I made this little booklet for her. The cover is in hot pink silk dupion. And hidden in the soft spine is a little bouquet of mini-flowers. I simply glued down the silk to the paper in the spine-area, and […]
