Collages in a drawer

Hidden and revealed, collage by iHanna 2011. For sale on Etsy. I’m looking through the drawer where I keep collages. I found a few made during last year that I forgot to scan and show. I’ve compared them to what’s in the category of collage, and I don’t think you’ve seen these colorful lovelies yet? […]

Pay a blogger day

Pay a blogger day

I just found out via Sister Diane’s blog that today is Pay a blogger day, so I finally signed up for a service called Flattr and I’m now testing it out. They write: Bloggers give up an awful lot of their spare time to make their readers smarter, happier or simply more efficient in killing […]

Before & after: turquoise stool

Before & after: turquoise stool

While painting the table I also transformed this IKEA stool that I’ve had for a few years. Its simply made to be transformed and personalized. I always thought I’d do “something” with it, and now was the time. I turned it into a matching turquoise. Isn’t it awesome? I think so. I don’t understand why […]

Kurbits – painting the Dala Horse

I’m continuing our guided tour as part of the Craftalong today. We are at Nusnäs, where the Dala Horse is created.

I’ve updated my Etsy shop with old new stuff, and I will keep adding more stuff during November!

Shipping from Sweden will take 1-2 weeks (also […]

A day in a market stall

A day in a market stall

I make notebooks for myself, to sell, and to give to friends. This is what happens when I’m in the making-mood: Spiral bound blank notebooks made from recycled vintage book covers! At the market we attended this summer at Sollerön in Dalarna I put up some of my old notebooks. It’s about two years ago […]

I’d rather be in the studio – a book review

I read Alyson B. Stanfield’s book I’d Rather Be in the Studio (the Artist’s No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion) from the first page to the last when I got it in the mail – and loved it! This book is about marketing for the self-employed, aimed at painting artists mainly, but I think you will gain […]
