Weekly update: 1/52 Morning Coffee Creative inspiration

Hi from Düsseldorf, 
I got new inspiration and energy for my blog the other morning when I met with a little group of creative international women here in Düsseldorf. Because of Covid it's been over a year ago since we last met up and it was nice to finally catch up again. We are women from many different countries and who all are into different artistic creative genre living in Düsseldorf. It is great to have this forum to share, inspire and push each other. Last time we met I was more confused what I wanted to do with my illustrations and my hats that I am sewing. How to take it to next level and actually find channels to sell. Since then I have really pushed myself and managed to participate in 3 markets during 2021 which feels like a big step forward. To be brave enough to bring my handmade stuff out to the world to be exposed and sold. 

With this this is a new start with my blog with the ambition to update weekly 
About whatever comes on my mind or whatever creative projects that I am working on 
I started this blog 2010  and I have been on and off active during the years and gone through so many difference phases

Inspired by

Påsken 2021

Vi flög till Stockholm och hängde några dagar hos mamma i deras nya lägenhet inne i stan. Barnen testade leka i Vasaparken rakt över gatan. Första vårsolen värmde äntligen lite. Det kändes härligt och konstigt att folk satt på uteserveringar och att restauranger och caféer var öppna. Prinsesstårta, semla och påskbakelse på en uteservering. Jag passade på att klippa mig eftersom frisörerna varit stängda sedan december och min man vuxit sig lång. Jag följde med Sofie ut till stallet och red hennes fina häst medan barnen hade movie night med mormor.  Nere i Vingåker fick vi äntligen träffa Bozze och morfar. Leka med bästis och grilla med farbror Christer. Min morfar var färdig vaccinerad och bjöd oss på våfflor. Barnen gick till frisören och blev kanonsnygga i håret. Lekt mycket med grannbarnen och njutit av att kunna spring och ut hur och när man vill.  En morgon vaknade vi till snö. Aprilväder. Filip och jag gick en före-frukost promenad i skogen för att njuta av snön. Eftersom det ändå

Chicken shit discussion

In my sketch-book I drew this illustration  In Sweden we have one big celebration 31 April - Valborgsmässoafton  It is a celebration for spring and the normal is to collect lots of people in parks and watch a big bonfire Also students meet up and drink and party a lot in normal times  But in this Corona Pandemic not so clever  So to prevent people to gathering  Lund a city down south of Sweden came up with the idea of spraying the parks with Chicken manure to prevent people from being able to meet up in the parks  How clever!  And I would have loved to hear the discussion amongst beige politicians when some genius cracked this idea

Weekly update 4/52 Looking back at a creative 2021

 Happy new year and welcome 2022 ! I am hoping this will be another good year. I am aware that being in the middle of a pandemic might not be classified as an amazing year, but on a personal level I think 2021 was a nice year. The scare for the virus was higher during 2020 when everything was new and restrictions felt more dramatic. 2021 we were already use to having this virus present although invisible and how to handle restrictions testing and masks.  For my creativity and productivity 2021 has been great. With part of the year being home-schooling I had less time to think what to draw or what to make and why. I just had to create what-ever came to my mind to have some time for me and a feeling that I am "doing" something. I constantly had my watercolors and drawing pad on the kitchen table - only cleaned it way a bit when we were eating. I have tested new techniques, spend a lot of time on the same drawing and from that I feel I have developed so much this year.  Here is
