Sometimes you get newsletter that inspire you more than others. I got one yesterday, from Milimbo. Milimbo is a studio/workshop based in Valencia, Spain. You might have seen their work over at Kickan & Conkers now and then. Take a look at their cardboard games and cardboard animals. Milimbo on Etsy. Milimbo’s blog

Tape & stamps

Some people just have it all. The energy, the plants, the cute look and the gorgeous handwriting. Not to mention the taste. White ink on cardboard. Love.

Look how happy I am. I got this parcel today from bastisRIKE

My new favorite tape. Thank you Rike :)

You must take a look at her stamps as well, perfect presents.

Christmas market preparations

There was a lot of people working in the studio today. Mostly with Julform, the market. But me and Klara did a lot of packing too (thank you for all orders!). Gosh the Paumes books sold out quickly. But happily they will be back in stock again next week. Please send a mail if you would like to reserve a specific one.

As you might remember we started a Christmas market last year called Julform. The market was a great success and will of course be back this year as well. This weekend in fact. Even if I’m not “in charge of it” this time I will be involved as one of the exhibitors. If you are in Gothenburg friday–sunday you really should stop by Röhsska and visit the market.


JULFORM 2011, Wernstedthallen, Röhsska museet:
9 december 16–19
10 december 11–17
11 december 11–17

The market will be filled with high quality products made by established craftsmen and designers. Like these Christmas sprawling kitchen towels made by Cecilia or the velvet pillow below, made by the same.

Is it not amazing Cecilia‘s pillow (remember the drawing?) In black velvet. I’m drawling! As said Cecilia is a pattern queen. Look here. Leave a comment at Cecilia’s blog if you’re interested in buying one.

Klara‘s gorgeous mittens will be sold at the market as well. You hear, you just can’t miss this. Kom!

Another pattern queen, Katy Goutefangea.

This house, associated with summer holidays, celebrations and family dinners. Is missing one person. Her name was Karin. She was an unusually clever, shrewd and humorous old woman. She lived for over 95 years, almost a century.

She didin’t live here, her son does. But she will be missed, by the house too.

A lamp, a Flemish tapestry. Karin’s.

The sun is shining today.

The museum of everything.

Creativity, in the real sense

Works by Cilla Ramnek.

Imagne how many hours of work. The variety of materials, thumbtacks, fabric samples, paper strips, pot holders, crochets… quirky, all handmade and far from perfect, love.

Vitaminized. Thanks.
