See you next year!

I think this is what our Christmas holidays will look like again this year. We leave for Hong Kong & Thailand tomorrow - and will celebrate Christmas on Koh Mak, with friends from home and with my cousin + family, who lives on Iceland rigth now. It´s our 4th Christmas holiday in Thailand - which means that so far Nanna has only seen Thai Santa´s and plastic trees - but who cares when the sun is shining, the sea is warm, the food is served and all you have to do is to kick back and enjoy the holidays. I wish you all a warm and merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year 2008 - see you next year!

Giving birth to a giant baby

I love this photo, where artist Ron Mueck (pushing the head) works with the Brooklyn Museum staff to install the exhibition Ron Mueck on view. See the whole progress in a Flickr set here. This photo really speaks to me since I admire Mueck´s work a lot + the project I´m working on right now feels a bit like giving birth to a giant baby...

Hello world!

Just had to share this little piece from my Site Meter statistics - It´s been a very international day here at Spagat´s blog.

Welcome!

La Marelle

The new website from La Marelle, is a treasure trove of great products and clever illustrators, like Lilidoll and miss clara - and don´t miss Miss Clara´s magical website. I´m so busy the next weeks so blogging will be very sporadicly - but La Marelle´s collection of illustrators and cards should keep you entertained for a while. Enjoy!

DIY- advent calender

I love this idea for an Advent calender, from Boligliv nr.11/07 - but I can´t crochet - nor cast on a stitch - but if you can I hope this inspires you - it surely makes me want to learn how to crochet or knit before next december...
