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.

Celebrate July!

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

I just updated my Celebrate July-list, so I am reposting it, even if we´re already halfway to August. That´s summer for you! One of my favorite things about Christmas, is making calenders. But why wait for Christmas, when we can have fun all year?!? This is inspired from Sally Jean, but is also based of […]

Celebrating the International Taco-day!

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

First you start by inviting your friends and neighbors over. It´s easy to think you can just invite people over for the weekend, but people need food in the middle of the week too, so a Tuesday is perfect for company! I wanted to make real lemonade. You simply don´t get that in Norway, there […]

Celebrate June!

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

1. Today is both Kids day in Russia and Dinosaur day in the USA. A perfect combination if you ask me! Take the kids to a dinosaur-museum, or go play dinosaurs in the jungle-forrest-backyard. 2. Go fishing! 3. Make a collection of small line-drawings. Buy some henna-powder and oil to make a temporary tattoo from your […]

Celebrate May

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

The first week this month is inspired by Kurt Johannessen, a very creative Norwegian artist. If you think these are a bit weird, he´s done them all. Including following a snail for an entire day! (Now that might be interesting for someone as impatient as me…) 1. Write a question on a battery-driven boat. Start […]

Celebrate March

Monday, March 1st, 2010

March is National Craft month! How about that! We like crafting, that´s for sure! So lets be crafty this month 🙂 1. Today is share-a-smile-day. Now isn´t that a nice way to start the week 🙂 Let´s start using our creativity this month to make a beautiful postcard, and send it to your mail-man! Show […]

Celebrate February!

Monday, February 1st, 2010

1. Nature is changing. The nights are slowly becoming lighter, the snow is raining away (it is here anyway). Find a good spot for your tri-pod (or a small table you don´t need for a month) Place your camera on it, and every day at the exact same time, take a picture of the view. […]

Celebrate December!

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

1. Yay! Finally! You can open the first present in your Advent-calender. Find your Christmas decorations and decorate a little bit every day. Check at the local post-office when the deadlines for Christmas-cards to arrive in time are. Start your own christmas-journal, where you write lists for presents, cards and cookies-recipes. 2. Make a list […]

Celebrate November!

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

1. Watch a movie you haven´t seen in ages. Make yourself a good cup of Cocoa with cream, newly baked pastry and enjoy yourself and life in general! 2. D.I.Y.-day! Find an fixer-upper stuffed away in the attic, and be creative with it. Is it a stool, an old chest, a small table. Whatever it […]

Making apple-drink

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Those who know me, know that I am not the greatest housewife. But there is one domestic thing that I am quite good at. And that is making apple-drink. Or “saft” as it´s called in Norway. Anyway. Being an apple-patriot (I have three trees in my garden), I´d thought I´d take you through the recipe. […]

Invite some friends over, and make it a creative party. Here’s 3 ways to Enter: 1. Leave a comment on any of my […]
