As you can see there is a lot going on and I really hope I find time to tell you about everything!
But for now.... a little preview:

2) wax paper DIY
3) Packing presents inspiration
4) Say hello to the picnic pillow!
5) Anton's drawing - thermalcopier/ print

Have a wonderful evening and take care!

On the wall - little DIY projects II

Today I want to show you Jonas' wall and a little DIY project:

The black triangels on the sides are made with Photoshop. The wall around the pictures is actually white!
1) Wooden triangels mad by my mothers uncle, Johannes Scharfenstein
2) A Drawing from my mother (when she was young)
3) A postcard I bought in the museum Ludwig/ Cologne
4) Picture I drew when I did a folder presentation course
5) Hanging vase from Tiger
6) Singing rabbit, watercolor picture I made for Jonas
7) Sorry, I don't know who made this (if you do, let me know)
8) Today's little DIY project:  A hexagon painted with blackboard paint

Mark the end points of a hexagon on the wall (with a pencil)
You can draw the hexagon on paper first, cut it out and use it as a template, don' t draw on the wall directly. Connect the end poits with painter' s masking tape. Now you can paint the inner surface with blackboard paint. Let it dry overnight and paint it again.

We made some changes some weeks ago. I bought a record-frame and now Jonas is changing the recordcover from time to time. At the moment it' s Tom Waits, I really like the arrangement! We were inspired by my brother who has a Vinyl of the week thing: every week he hangs up a new cover on the wall and listens to the record!

Bye Bye!

On the wall - Little DIY project

I want to show you my new arrangement of pictures on my wall. I like to change pictures from time to time and the little diy - project I want to write about today is perfect for that:

It's a cotton stretched canvas you can buy in art supply stores or sometimes at the Baumarkt. You don't need a high quality one. Paint it with blackboardpaint (2 times, 24 h between the two coatings) and it is ready for your to draw on it! I used white chalk and painted a little pattern. 

Here is another picture:

And another one:

It' s fun! Have a nice weekend!


Some things I was working on/with in november:

1) Handprinted postcard
You can find them now in my shop here
2+3) Painted little sticks, pine cones and bark
4) Wrinkled fabric 
5) Little installation
6) Coloured screenprint
7) Beautiful autumn colours

Roadtrip to Lapland

I am still dreaming of our roadtrip to Lapland. The north of Sweden is beautiful and I could get back in the car and drive up there right away.

The Treehotel in Harads/ Lapland

On our roadtrip to Jokkmokk in the north of Sweden we stopped at the Treehotel/ Brittas Pensionat in Harads. You can book a guided tour, but we decided to go alone. It costs about 75 Kr and you pay the entrance fee at the reception of Brittas Pensionat. The seven different cabins are really amazing. The Treehotel was inspired by the swedish documentary Trädälskaren (The Tree lover) by indie director Jonas Selberg Augustsén.

The Cabin

From the treeroom you can overlook the Lule River valley.

The Mirror Cube

The dimensions of the Mirror Cube are 4x4x4meters and the 
mirrors reflect the surrounding. This one was my favourite!


Each house is powered by sustainable electricity.

The Blue Cone

The Bird's Nest

The Dragonfly

I would love to stay there, but it is way too expensive for me. If you want to know more about the rooms check out the webpage. You will find pictures of the interiors too!


My new wallpaperdesign produced in coorperation with Photowall is now online. Take a look at the two designs here.

Konstepidemin Göteborg

On saturday the 5th was the Konstepidemins dag. The Konstepidemin is a place where artists meet and if you are lucky you can rent one their beautiful ateliers. A lot of them have a little terrace and/or a little garden. I started daydreaming directly...maybe one day I will have a studio there. 
You can also find galleries, a cafe and a little shop there.
