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.

Thanks for looking!

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!
