Drawer


I got this idea from a photo that Alex Noriega had taken on a visit in Souther Salazar's studio. I just took boxes and lids that I had at home, not so stylish but good :) Why haven't I thought about this before!

A totally different Alex gave me a "Thinking blogger" award! Thank you! She wrote so nice about my blog - "Next to appear was Camilla Engman, whose amazing artwork captivated me long ago. Camilla is what I would call a generous spirit. Her blog is refreshing, honest, searching and very inclusive. Apart from sharing her art and scenes from her life, she adds links to her posts that urge us to travel with her and to enjoy the treasures that she has unearthed for us all. Here is a sneak peek into her wonderful world. "

A while ago I got another award "This blog has the power to schmooze" from Penelope. I've just been to busy, haven't had any time to bragg ;)

morran's hat


Moo Morran


My Morran Moo cards.
On our vacation in Spain we lived next door to an American girl
- Oh what a cute dog, what's its name!
- Morran (I say Morran with R's like in spanish or Scotish).
- What!?
- Morran (then I tried to say it more american) - Moorraan
- Are you aware what that means in english?
.... moron
I guess she has to have an english alias.

Autumn


My favorite season I think. You can pick berries and mushrooms, there is not so much insects, the colours and the smell is wonderful. Perfect temperature for walking. What more can you wish for. There is just one "bad" thing about autumn, it's the last season for Maria's and my collaboration (pretty soon :) Winter, Spring, Summer

Another Valerie Hammond link, I primarily found her through Jeana Sohn
Þóra Breiðfjörð, can't remember my way there.

Yoga


I'm taking yoga lessons one morning every week. I'm always thinking I will make it by myself, but it never happens. Why is that? You know you want to, you know it's good for you but no.
Sweden has got its first Yoga magazine. Maybe you are better than I'm to do yoga by yourself, here is daily yoga lessons. And there is a lot of yoga instructions on YouTube.

Thank you for your comments yesterday :) you are so nice.

Material


It's strange but I miss my old blog. I don't feel at home here at blogger, who could have guessed. Even though I get more comments here it feels so quiet. But don't worry I will stay here :)
I've sent my 2008 calendar to the printer!

New camera!

I bought a new camer yesterday! Yesterday was such a good day. I did like the old camera a lot, but know when I'm testing the new one I realize how old it was. I fell in love with this camera even before I tested it just reading the manual waiting for the battery to load. It feels right. Just have to find my features. Yesterday when the battery was loaded Morran and I took a dusky walk in the forrest. Here's the new cameras first photo's :) The brand is Richo, Caplio GX100.

Meeting in Gothenburg


Today Elisabeth, Sandra and I met Lena and Josh at a cafe in Gothenburg. It's so nice to acctually meet people live, people that you somehow have a connection to through the web, reading their blogs and liking their things (and dogs). I've met a few people and the funny thing is that they have all been like I expected, they have been as their blogs. Lena no exception, she was just as nice and lovely as I expected. They are continuing their scandinavia tour up to Stockholm where they will meet Karin and Emma I think. I bet it will not be half as nice as the short but sweet time they spent with us ;)

We have finally started with the last part of our kitchen, the mosaic. It will be sooo nice.

I posted about Valerio Vidali today at the Illustration Friday Blog.
