Just discovered today that I´m the lucky winner of Sia´s goodiebag. Take a look here at the drawing and at my sweet prize. Thank you so much Sia - and Floris for breaking my bad lottery spell - last time I won something in a lottery I was 7 years old and won a can of canned peaches - I cried the whole afternoon afterward because I was so disappointed and wanted one of the teddybears instead. This goodiebag finally makes up for it :) Sia´s great blog, siagrafica made it to the Top 10 new design blogs to watch organized by laissezfaire recently - which is why she made this goodiebag for one of her readers.

Seem like delicate DIY mobiles is the next big thing - and there are so many great examples around the web right now, like the top one by Puka, this one from Karin in ceramics, the wooden one from Boohou and the bottom one by Debi Van Zyl. Making a mobile could be a fun weekend project - have a great weekend. Just saw this mobile by Lisa Congdon for their Rare Device Opening - and not to forget these paper mobiles by Frazier&Wing.

The highlights of this weekend was lots of free "White Lady" drinks friday night - and lots of reading on sunday, in my sisters new Jeu De Paume book - Childrens Rooms in Stockholm -which I immediately snatched. I surfed their website this morning and now I want to study them all - take a look - there´s tons of inspiration and eye candy on the site. By reading I mean looking because they are written in Japanese...
I´m also reading all 3 books by Stieg Larsson in a row - so please don´t call or disturb me at night - and when they get translated in English make sure to read them - they are sooo great.

After I had written the post about the calenders I came to think of this calender, which I designed some months ago - as part of the Breast Cancer Awareness product line. It´s a family wall calender where I played a lot with my pattern - and it felt a bit like a school project, Make a pattern and the make 12 variants out of it. The calenders are for sale in this webshop and in one of these shops in DK. I think it´s a great Christmas Gift!

Diana Fayt´s new 2008 calender is for sale now - and it looks just as great as the last pictured here below - which I missed.
Instead I got a letterpress calender from Ilee - a rich mix of old school letterpress, silkscreen, foil stamping, fine papers and handpainted accents - it´s so beautiful, and she has a new 2008 calender for sale in her Etsy shop now - see picture below.

Etiketter: my studio

I just discovered this wonderful onlineshop, The Paper Studio, a fine art shop run by artists who are paper fanatics! Among other things they have the most amazing collection of Japanese papers - called Chiyogami Paper, Yuzen Paper and Washi Paper. They are all little pieces of art - and you can see here how it takes six silkscreen runs to print the designs on a sheet of paper - Amazing!

I recently updated my website with these patterns - they are based on this illustration, and I thought they would be perfect for kid´s clothing.
This one I´ve named See-vitamins
And this one is called "Gule Rødder" - or A Carrot a Day...
I really enjoy doing these patterns - and I´m curious to know what you think. Would you buy something like this for a kid? Please share your opinion!

Ever since I discovered these paper garlands by SoSage this summer I´ve been hoping to get some time to make my own! Now SoSage has just started a new blog devoted to their garlands - it´s pure handmade eyecandy and great colour combinations. They also have a Etsy shop - and I guess I´ll end up buying one there instead of making my own versions... due to so many project- and so little time...
