Scent of winter

Yes winter finally found it's way here! Almost felt like picking up a little sledge... almost! ;)
So today I went for a little walk with our dog Ronja and this time I did bring my camera and took some photos of all the snow and of Ronja...haha!

Haven't been doing much today other then surf the net. Been trying to get back into the swing of things at deviantART but have lots to go through there but I think I will try my best to update my gallery there (it's so out of date). Last night I spent some time deleting some of the things there and sent others into the scrap album.

But yesterday something else very exciting happened (that made me very nervous)... The journalist Linda and photographer Åke from the newspaper Corren was here to write a story about me and my mother Yvonne! The journalist had seen us at one of the fairs and really like our creations and wanted to know more about us. But as I said... we where really nervous and especially for the photographing... hehe! I like taking photos NOT being in them ;) They where however really nice and everything went fine and it will be exciting to see the end result in a couple of weeks. Exciting but also a bit scary!!!

This next picture I had planned to show you on December 13 (on Lucia) but since I spent most of the weekend being nervous I will show you now instead. ;)

I have show them before but I took some new photos of them after the fairs.
So that all I got to say this time!

Thanks for looking!

Fairs over...

Now the Christmas fairs are over and I like to thank all of you that have found your way here because of them! Tack ska ni ha! :)

As usual I forgot to take out the camera at the fairs but here is one of the angelgnomes I made for the fairs. This i Ellinor!

I don't think I have mention this before but I actually have another blog together with my mum Yvonne, Spiksborgs Art & Design ! We only write in swedish there but feel free to have a look.

I know that I am a bad bloger but I would like to change that but having something interesting to tell is always difficult so any suggestions or questions are more then welcome to help me improve.

There are some plans going on behind the screen and hopefully they will be happening soon so keep on checking in for updates!

Nu har jag skrivit på engelska ett tag här i bloggen men om önskemål finns så kan jag börja skriva på båda språken. Eller så besöker ni mammas och min lilla sida. ;)

Thanks for looking!

Quick message

Paint in my hair...

Just a quick little visit to let you know that I have been busy paining... a house that is ;)

I'm helping my uncle painting his house, so I haven't been home much these last months. Now I'm just home for a few days before heading up again but I thought I let you know whats going on and show you some pictures!

And yes... I do have paint in my hair. White window paint really isn't something I recommended for your hair. ;)

Thanks for looking!

Pixies on my mind

Yes... pixies!

For the last month or so I have been making pixie portraits, bookmarks and magnets like crazy. The inspiration for them came when I was drawing while I waited for my sister to get her tattoo done (that I had made the lineart for see, picture below). Thats when I discovered how fun colour pencils can be on brown nature paper and since then the pixies keeps poping up in my mind demanding to be drawn. ;)

Here is the first one I did:

I also tried making pixies in paper clay but since I don't know how to finish them this is how they still look.

Have moved in all my things that I'm selling this summer in our local craft store that I'm a member of. This year my mum is also going to be there with her jewelery so that gonna be fun.
It will not open officially until after Midsummer but the women that is organizing everything is having a few guided tours before that (there is a museum in the next door building) so thats why we moved in our stuff early.

Here is the lineart for my sisters tattoo, click on it to see it bigger:

I could write more... but as usual it's late and I should be sleeping. But I know that if I don't post this tonight I will keep on procrastinating and you wouldn't see anything from me i who know how long (but I will try to be better).

Thanks for looking!

This snowy Sunday...

Fairy Laura01

...I have spent in front of the computer and resizing photos and then uploaded them to flickr. I was going to tackle the rest of my photos of my angelgnomes too but right now my fingers are freezing and my head feel funny so I better do them another day. =)

I mention in my last post that I have discovered pastel pencil and here is some pictures I have made with them so far.

Have also been painting a bit but noting is near finished and with the way I stared on new paintings I probable never will. I get stuck and don't know how to continue, but hopefully I will have something to show in a not too distant future.

Why is writing interesting thing is sooooo difficult! ;)

My birthday is coming up this week but that not really interesting now is it. Hmm... but I do look forward to the cake... ;)

Been reading Harry Potter and I started with The order of the Phoenix yesterday and yeah I like it so far. Just what you wanted to know... right lol!

My head is pretty empty right now but I hope to have something better to say next time!

just another boring post

How is it that bad habits always seems to creep up when you least expect it!
Oh well... I guess that is still something that I need to work on. I'm of course referring to to my lack of post but I might just as well be talk about everything else in my life to. =)

I have moved.
Or rather all of my art stuff has, along with my computer into the big room upstairs!

At first I was going to wait until we renovated the big room, because it really is in a bad shape but at the moment we just don't have the money for it. I just have to look at the different torn wallpaper and the missing ceiling part as part of the rooms charm. Lol!

But for me sharing a space with my family is by far the biggest change. I keep getting aware of how I bowser on the webb, on what videos I watch and the music I listen to, though I really shouldnt feel that way. Now it's really not that big of a deal since they already now that I'm really silly and at times pretty stange but it still is a big change if you know what I mean.

The best ting with the move is that I finally have an actual bed room again and I must say that that really feels good. The only thing I'm really missing right now is a bookcase so that I can get all of my books out of storage. That just might get me motivated to read again... or more at least.

I have discovered pastel pencil, guitar hero III and rediscover photoshop since my last post but will talk more about that next week. ;)

I might show some pictures of the new workspace next time but right now I just wanted to let you know what is happening in my life. Hope you are having a nice weekend!

This time I say.

Thanks for reading!

My desk this morning...

This is how my desk looked this morning... and it still dose!

Have been sick for the last couple of days, witch of course is never fun but I'm starting to feel better so thats good.
This morning I had big plans and knew exactly what I wanted to write. Now I can't remember a thing. That should probably tell me to stop from procrastinating, but I know that it will not so lets move on shall we...

Like I mention in my last post my mum was having a tattoo done on Tuesday and she did choose the first design but with the second sun. The guy that tattooed her was really nice and it took him about three hours from stenciling the design to making the final touches. Mum is really happy and it's healing well.

I must say I would like to get a tattoo myself, have wanted one for years, but my skin doesn't heal well so I'm not sure that would be a good idea. My sister however have already booked a time to get her second and guess who she have decided will design it! =)

So there will be more tattoo designs here in the future.

Today I have added some new photos to my Flickr. Photos of my lucia dolls and the progress of making them. Next up is more of my angelgnomes and two bigger dolls to name a few.

Tattoo design

I spent my Sunday making tattoo designs for my mum.
She is getting a tattoo on Tuesday so I wanted to have some finished design today so that I can do some last minutes changes if needed.

In the beginning she wanted her children's initials (me and my two sisters) but AAS just didn't seem right somehow. ;)
Then we where going to look up some chines signs but in the end she decided on having hers and ours star signs in a swirly design. Leo, Aquarius, Gemini and Capricorn.

Here are the two designs she is choosing from.

When ever I have had the computer on this week I have made some digital sketches. Noting to advance just yet but I like to share some of them. =)

These two are made on the 4 and 6 of January.

And these on the 7 and 9 January.

Hello 2009!

And to you!

It's been almost a month since my last post. Both Christmas and New year have past and I had a nice time but I'm excited to see what 2009 will bring.

I never make new years resolutions (because I can't keep them) but I plan to create lots of things and try to update this blog at least once a week. I also want to do more digital paintings and manipulations (collages) this year, for one simple reason... I miss it! Don't get me wrong. I will still make traditional art, I am painting with acrylic right now as well as creating new dolls!

I will also try and take more photos, might even learn something along the way. I have even started uploading on Flickr so feel free to have a look at my photostream. I'm still not sure how it works though.

Here are some of the pictures that I have so far!
