This technique works well for text, logos and other vector artwork. It consists of taking a virtual photograph of the work by combining Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop filters. The end result can’t be distinguished from a real photograph. Some might prefer just to take a photograph - but I think it´s always great fun to learn new stuff!

Underskriftsindsamlingen er startet af danske borgere, som er skamfulde og indignerede over, at man i vort overskudssamfund tillader, at en gruppe medmennesker bliver behandlet dybt uanstændigt. Skriv under på www.amnesti-nu.dk

I deliberately try not to visit Etsy too often, because I could easily spend too much time and money there...
But I love Etsy - since it allows you to buy and sell all things handmade. And I wish that sometime in the near future I´ll find time not only to drool over craft projects like these from craftyalien, but also to be crafty again. If you need a cute and crafty christmas project, be sure to check out her fabulous backyard critters patterns above and enjoy these EGGCELLENT - Eggs & Chicks - Magnets.

Here´s some Friday Fun for you. A cool collage machine that allows you to create your own digital collages online.
I planned to make my own Flash collage machine some years ago - but my Flash skills weren´t ready for a project this size. So I´m happy to see that someone else managed to create a great collage machine.

I love stamps and wouldn´t you just love to recieve a letter or postcard from Lundy Island with these stamps.
So puffin week is over now and a lovely relaxing Italian weekend is ahead - can´t wait to introduce Nanna to Italy. She can already say " ciao ciao-Gelato- bella bimba and mamma mia!" Have a great weekend - I´m back on Tuesday!

My old workspace in our flat sometimes looked like this before picture - and I would end up sitting with my laptop by the dinning table and work instead. So when I found my studio, I was kindly asked by my better half to clean up my mess! and I did!- and now my old messy and creative corner looks like this - which is so much better and calming to look at when you are at home and meant to relax. My stuffed puffin is from the Faroe Islands and is sitting next to Camilla´s print. If you also enjoy to see other creative peoples workspaces have a look here or visit Sabine and Shannon
Let me introduce my wooden puffin and my studio. The puffin from Iceland is hanging over my desk at work - and I love to pull it´s string now and then. From my desk I either look out the window to the left or the door in front of me - overlooking a hanging garden and a lovely birch tree. The studio is placed in an old chocolate factory inhabited by young firms working with design, architecture or technology and I share my workspace with 2 girls working with trends and fashion.

I love coincidences like this! - I just posted about Puffins today and a few hours later I discovered a new website inhabited by these great puffins made by the talented Eleanor Grosch. So I now declare this week for Puffin week - and please join if you have any cool puffin links or stuff. Another thing for my wishlist now is these cool Keds by Eleanor.
I adore this rare little Puffin, made by the famous Kaj Bojesen, who created some great toys.
I have a thing with puffins and would love to add this to my collection, but it costs more or less the same as a plane ticket to Thailand... so I choose Thailand for now - and keep dreaming of finding it in a second hand store at the price of a buss ticket instead.

I know it´s a bit late since October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month - and most of the great items above are already sold out. BUT breast cancer is always present and it´s an issue close to my heart, since both my mother and grandmother has suffered from it and survived it!. I donated money for Sofia Mannings foundraising campaign for The Danish Cancer Society, and you can still make donations here untill November 6th.
The delicate bracelets are designed by Helen Clara Hemsley.

So November is here - and it´s not a very good start when you wake up to really wet snow, strong winds and a bikeride. The photo is from my window this morning just to prove the snow - and to show off my new vase from Fabula. I´ve had my eyes on it for a long time and finally got it this friday at a big craftsmarket here in Århus. Come on November - you can do better than this!

1st of November is the last chance to sign up for Cake + Pie and Freshlyblended´s big Holiday Ornament Swap'06. The rules are simple ; Design an ornament that you can create multiples of and mail them to 8-10 other swap participants. You don´t have to be a blogger or designer to join - just a little crafty! More info here.
We will be celebrating Christmas in Thailand again this year - so this swap is a great way for me to be a little "christmas crafty" before we leave...

I couldn´t believe my eyes when I saw this fantastic shop in the new WeAR magazine. Deyrolle is definitely on my To- do-list next time I go to Paris - and already on my Favorite Shop´s list, since they have butterflies, stuffed animals - real ones!, conch shell, books and stationary. They even have an online shop where you can buy posters or maybe a stuffed polarbear! ( I´m not sure if the big animals are for sale or for rent) Have a happy weekend.

I´m SO in love with the new Live Trace feature in Illustrator CS2 - I´ve been playing with it for the last 2 days and still can´t stop smiling :) If you sometimes miss the old Streamline program - it´s because you haven´t discovered the Live Trace buttom yet. Place a picture and hit the magic buttom that converts images into tracing objects.

At Formland I fell in love with these animals by Karin Mannerstål. She is a multi-talented Swedish designer who is working with many different materials and media. The graphics of this pattern reminds me of some drawings in one of my childhood´s books - but I can´t recall which one. See more here or here.
