Weekly update 5/52 First week of a new year

 First week of January and the first steps in a new year. No big changes. Covid-19 has developed from Delta to Omicron to dominate and infect record many people in Europe. German has new restrictions coming along called 2G+ which means that no longer can the Covid-pass ( Vaccinated 2 times) open doors for you now you either have to add the third booster vaccin or show Covid-pass + test. This is for restaurants, bars, indoor fitness, pools and cinema etc. I don't know what to say I have no energy to think too much about new restrictions again more then I am not complaining as long as schools are open. In the schools the kids wear mask and are tested twice per week. 
This illustration ( watercolor and black inc fine line) I finished this week well the inspiration is pretty clear right 

I have not yet got around to do an illustrated summary of my 2021- but maybe it will come. Also the inspiration of doing a wish list for 2022 is low. But I did decide to have a white January (alcohol free) and also no sweets or chocolate - so far doing good although it was harder then I had expected first few days. This is not a diet just needed to control my sugar addiction and I am eating heaps of nuts, dried fruit, cheese, snacks and drinking tea instead. 

About my creative work 
I have cleaned and sorted out my studio and with that I found my box with fabric left overs and off cuts from all the hats I made last year and I decided to do something with all of it before I am allowed to buy new fabrics. So I am mass producing scrunchies and headbands at the moment.

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
