Can new washi tape make you Happy?

True confession time: I balance between knowing that you can’t buy happiness, and then doing it anyway at times. Yes, spending money on “things” can make a girls mood lift, just like doodling can. Some shop for clothes or shoes, or buy new towels in matching colors even though they already have enough of them… […]

Blue and Pink fabric finds

I’m glad I didn’t decide to blog every day this month, because this week I’ve been under a rock of work, so much so my own creativity has suffered and this blog was left alone for most of the time. All I managed, except making layouts for a magazine I work for, was sending out […]

Pretty Things for a Planner Girl

Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down. Charles F.

Field Notes from IKEA

Field Notes from IKEA

IKEA is one of my favorite stores, not only because it’s 1) Swedish and 2) cheap but also because I find it inspiring (although tiring) to walk through the big storehouse close to Stockholm. And now they’ve got the most beautiful line of paper goods, including notebooks, washi tape, wrapping paper, boxes and more. Related […]

Eye Candy | Blue smiling cat

Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning. Joseph Campbell At a recent visit to a rather cute second hand shop (new to me) I found this blue cat. I adore the 1970-style and shape of it, […]
