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.

Christmas ornaments and activities

Friday, December 30th, 2011

The post has been a bit slow, but finally I got them! Let me show you some more of this Christmas´ ornaments. From the guru of ARTing, my dear friend Michelle, a Christmas-robot 🙂 From her lovely mother Karla (and my when-I´m-away-from-home-mother-to-borrow), this incredible little bird. Notice the vintage diamond necklace! And from Mystele, this […]

New calendar book

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

The new year is rapidly approaching, and as I starts, I´ll be needing a new calendar book. I bought a roll of Fabriano sketching paper (150cm x 10 meters). I´ve calculated that if I make all my future calendar-books this size, I´ll have book-paper for the next 8 years or so! Anyway, first thing´s first. […]

lazy days

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Lazy days. Days when I´ve been away. Days with family. Days with parties. Days with wonderful food and long traditions. Days with winter-storms, rain and wind. Days partly with no electricity, no internet, like in older days. I´ve spent my free time reading books instead of online-blogs and articles. Embroidering and knitting instead of Photoshopping. […]

24 – Christmas eve

Saturday, December 24th, 2011

The last day of the Advent Activity Calendar says: “Random act of kindness-day” Go out, smile, enjoy life, be kind! And have a wonderful Christmas!

23 – the day before the day

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

I am helping my sister in her shop today. It´s our own little Christmas tradition, going on it´s fifth year. She´s got a lovely interior-shop and I´ll be wrapping gifts. We´´ll have a great sisterly day together. So let´s just jump straight to the advent activity calendar: Make a photo-collage of YOUR Christmas. Bring your […]

22 – the annual paint-a-picture-for-Daddy-day

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Last night was one of the best Christmas traditions in this house! My almost-niece and almost-nephew came over for their annual paint-a-Christmas-present-for-Daddy-day! We start the day by eating a huge dinner of tacos! Then we put a big plastic cloth over the working table, and they get a canvas and a palette each. They´ve got […]

21 – pewter raven and nuts

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

I guess the big day is closing is closing in on us. Maybe I should do something about the remaining gifts…? Just yesterday this lovely pewter raven´s head arrived from ArtChix, and of course immediately inspired me to make this necklace. It´s combined with stones, shells and a couple of self-enameled beads from my Barbara […]

20 – candy-colored quotes

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

I am working, really I am! But my arm usually doesn´t want to work at the computer 10 hours a day. So I have to find some other things to keep be busy. This weekend, it´s been one of my work-tables that had it coming! An ordinary oak table-top with black metal feet from IKEA. […]

19- tree and giveaway

Monday, December 19th, 2011

Yesterday was the big Christmas-tree-picking-day! The whole family travelled to a neighboring island, to find the finest trees in the land. This is my brother-in-law with their tree. Mine can almost be seen behind the camera. The winner of last weeks advent give-away with postcards and magnets is: Bjørg Nina at Vilt og Vakkert! For […]

18 – lilies and bowling

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

Now who wouldn´t be jumping with joy when receiving such a lovely envelope? It doesn´t make it worse that it´s addressed “to the amazing” 😉 Well, you´ve guessed it. I´m going to Artfest again. This will be the last time Teesha is organizing this amazing, creative event. There are still a few spots left, and […]
