Dear Photo Diary | Newness in the air

Dear Photo Diary | Newness in the air

The month of May has been divided into two very intense parts: beautiful weather that draws me outdoors, away from the computer and blogging, and heavy computer work time that also has drawn me away from social media and writing blog posts. But today I (almost) finished one of my articles, and while the sun […]

How to make your Art Journal Page Bloom

How to make your Art Journal Page Bloom

I think the most important ingredient to make your art journal page bloom, is to use yourself as fodder in them.

A Stockholm Must See: Spring in Kungsan

Is it just me, or have spring been unusually beautiful this year? And long, stretching for weeks with blossoms in every tree top… At least I’ve been walking like in a haze, looking up at the tree tops most of the time. Maybe it was because I started spring of early by making a visit […]
