The big project

For about two weeks ago Anna and I went to Tunisia in the belief that we would make a couple of illustrations for the Tunisian company that exciting enough hired us with a very short notice. When we got there it turned out that our assignment would be a lot bigger than we first expected. Seriously this project is crazy. If I have ever said that I have had limited time before, ha how ridiculous-sounding that seems today.

The weird thing is that I’m pretty calm and easy about the situation. I read magazines, blog, I do homework with the kids, I even clean here and there. Must be the effect of running. Or am I just high on excess adrenaline? Ok I don’t sleep much, and I might miss a bunch of mails occationally. But as a whole, it’s all right.
The cup above is favorite cup of mine. Simple, handmade and just perfect to drink from. Bought it at a Christmas market at HDK a couple of years ago. Wish I knew who made it.

Crazy as said, but unreal fun and exciting. Like this part, porcelain.
Painting pillows, gorgeous.

She makes cute illustrations. Look here, here, here and here.

Double Merrick has new prints.

    You inspired me to get a pulse monitor, and now I am doing this exercise for runners to see where it will lead me next. Already I’ve changed the way I move at the gym.
    The video, images, and article —URL below—explains this technique perfectly. W.S. George’s “100-Up” invented in 1874. I love it!

    thanks for all the zillion ways you inspire me!

  9. Sara says:

    Oh, Look, the article is by the same author whose book you mentioned: Born to Run- Christopher McDougall…must be something in the air.

  10. Elisabeth says:

    Sara, good good!! That book has been on my list for a while now, time to get it! Thanks for reminding me, and thanks for the link tip, checking it out now…

    Hello Elisabeth, I’m positive not only you will manage with your big project but also you’ll made it a fantastic big project. Love the approach you have in life, love this blog and all the things you do.
    Have a good day, and try to have some naps here and there :)

  14. Elisabeth says:

    Thank you ladies. Can’t tell you how nice it is to have your support:)

    Dear Alessandra, dito!

    Nämen vad kul, ja det vet jag, hur roligt det är att göra mönster på muggar, good luck och kasta loss!

    Vill du veta vem som har gjort muggen så sitter jag inne på svaret….. Det är med all säkerhet Anna Y Gunnarsson. Hon gick mastern på keramikkonst och flyttade hem till Värmland efter det. Tro hon bor i närheten av Arvika. Kan förmedla kontakten via Facebook om du önskar.

    Fin blog!

  17. Elisabeth says:

    Charlotta, nä vad kul! Googlade på hennes namn, hittade ingen hemsida. Vet du om hon har någon? Hittade dock bilder och artiklar som precis som du säger, indikerar att det hon som gjort dem. Tack för informationen om våra favoritmuggar :)
