Art Journal Peek | Winter is Coming

Art Journal Peek | Winter is Coming

The title Winter is coming is well known if you too are hooked on TV series that never end. It might be misleading here, but I’m staying indoors a lot watching GoT as my brother calls it and doing embroidery. Misleading perhaps, but at least it’s very cold around here, and white. Winter is already […]

Can new washi tape make you Happy?

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.

Patterns doodles at the Office

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. Plato Instead of going into a meeting at work, only equipped with a ball point pen and a notepad, lately I’ve been bringing a black marker with me too. Not for note taking, but for doodles. I, […]

I love everything about the summer in general. And every summer about this time when it comes to visiting flea markets, or loppis as we say in Swedish, I feel a flea market crush coming on…. I love a good loppis and would love to spread the Loppis Love by inviting you to visit one […]
