Welcome to my site! I work as a costume-designer and an artist, 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.

pre-Christmas-worshop at home

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Our oldest girl and her little boy has been here for a couple days, and we´ve had such a good time. It´s been so busy lately, it´s been good to take some days off and just BE. Victoria hash´t sewn much at all since since middle high, but wanted to make an advent calendar for Nikolas. […]

Bjørn´s new curtains

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

It´s almost a tradition now. Giving my brother-in-law something home-sewn for the kitchen. He and my sister are about to get a new kitchen, so I thought it might be a good chance to make him new curtains. They´re in linen with silk hearts appliquéd on, and with a freestyle machine-embroidered text on it. The […]

Wishing you all a most wonderful and peaceful Christmas holiday!


Thursday, December 19th, 2013

It´s the last week before Christmas, and at work we met one evening, with families for a Christmas-workshop. I did a show-and-tell on how to make a little Christmas-tree-ornament. (By the time I had the chance to take photos, one family had already left) I think we all had fun, the kids were incredibly creative […]

This year´s Christmas ornament

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

A bunch of little old ladies is what turned up when I started making this years Christmas tree ornaments for our swap. I thought I was going to make a snowman. Or a penguin. I had even thought of a moose (for natural reasons… mooses have been on my mind the past months) But no. […]

Christmas is getting closer

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Three of my favorite kids visited last Sunday, for our annual “make-a-Christmas-gift-for-Dad”-workshop. They all make a little painting. One each year. By the time they´re grown up, they´ll have filled a wall! This year one of the dads joined in. Very successfully I might add. He kept in the kitchen, making us Christmas-tacos (so he […]

Christmas at Sola Airport

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Christmas at Sola Airport! It´s a big assignment I´ve been working on the past couple of weeks, hired in by a local marketing-agency as a set-designer/stylist. They had most of it planned/designed, but my job to execute, get it done. It starts (for my part) right before entering the security-area. A big sign showing what […]

Regina´s waxed paiting

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Isn´t this lovely house that Regina made for just perfect? Acrylic paint with a wax finish.  Regina is a trooper when it comes to blogging, every day there is a new inspiring post! We also did an ornament-swap, and this funky tree will ornate my Christmas tree next year!

A little mid-Christmas holiday golden girl for you.

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

I hope your days of Christmas are peaceful and blessed with smiles and laughter. This is one of the Christmas ornaments I made for the swap. The lace letter is freestyle machine embroidered onto water-soluble fabric. So when I´m done sewing, I put the whole thing in warm water, where the fabric disappears, leaving only […]
