Xmas presents

As I live far from shops this time of year, I  have my own present workshop in the
cottage. It´s either mail order or handmade this year. I love it and I hope people receiving
these do the same.

blues

sitting in the cottage, dusk is here and everything is painted blue.
 The candles are burning and
it´s a coooooosy feeling inside.
 Lots of snow blowing around and everything is covered of
fluffy snow. Like it

maxi stiching

 this a small piece (25x20 cm) completely covered with emboidery.
 It´s like embroidery-doodeling!
the base is cut-outs from old table-cloths
and they are now composed into a new piece.
but not a tablecloth!

greys

Today it´s a gray day. No real light today. It´s a different- shades- of- grey-day!
           the candles are burning all day long 




This is the way we communicate in the countryside. When I need post to go I put it in my mailbox with a sign. The postman then leaves and takes my mail at the same time. Works perfect!

 Good Morning! 
It´s ice ice cold this morning and my car is not in the mood to run today. So I am now charging the battery and while waiting, I am preparing my Christmas cards for this year. Love making my own.


making hearts from my cutting one odd sock I had
love using what I have to make loving cards

minis


this is how I love to see these mini landscapes put together. It like a calendar-
and it shows the many faces a landscape can have.

bare trees

I love this season when trees are bare and the twigs show 
their naked beauty. 
The graphic feeling and the endless patterns you can find, 
talks to my heart

Circles in blue

them all together and on top I added paper flowers

not white


It has been a lot of whites lately. I am a winter white snow person.
 But I am also very fond of strong colours, maybe my relation to the laponian
tradition and culture has taken me there.

Leaving Lapland






Time to leave for this time. it is hard to do. My exhibition was a success to me personally.
I had an excuse to go back in time to my adolescence and discover the beauty of the landscape.
And the people. I really understand why I had to work with the landscape.
These pictures are taken through the train window and as you can see, it´s breathtaking!

heading up north again


 Today I´m taking the night train back up north to the snow and winter.  Taking home 
my exhibition (hopefully some art is gone) and breathing mountain fresch air and 
taking the snow to my heart.
