I´m not dreaming of a white christmas...

I´m having one of those days today - so I just had to make a little reminder for myself of where I´ll be within 3 weeks time - so here´s a little sea and sun if you need some too... I sure do - and will stop complaining right away now - and start looking forward to our Christmas Holiday instead...

The Gift

Let me introduce you to the amazing glass-works by Karen Lise Krabbe. I went to the opening of her show, The Gift, this weekend, which is the first in a new STUDY series - organized by Glasmuseet in Ebeltoft. The titel The Gift refers both to her gratefulness for working with glass -but also to the way she has documented her working-process so carefully and specific that other glass-artist can use her experiments with different materials and continue from there...
I love the final result and the whole idea about sharing your knowledge - and I can highly recommend this exhibition that runs untill february. The top picture is of what the artist calls
" My 3D sketchbook" - it´s all the bits and pieces that didn´t make it through her critical process - but in my eyes they are all little treasures...

Our little Christmas Market

It´s been quiet on my blog which means that I´ve been busy IRL. Busy making posters and invitations for our little Christmas Market in our studio - and you´re more than welcome!
Busy making a studio blog - about what goes on in & outside our studio - you can read it in Danish here. And busy making a facebook group about the the same subject - which you can join here.

And busy designing logo´s and Christmas cards, and busy trying to develop my little design studio, busy cleaning after we had a new wall put up in the studio, busy decorating for Christmas at home since Nanna couldn´t wait any longer - and busy getting all my projects ready before the 17.th of december where we are off for a long and warm holiday in Malaysia and Thailand full of rest!

Visit to Aros

Today we finally got to visit our local art museum and to say hello to our painting! It´s was in great company and hung just opposite the Ferguson tractor made entirely from cardboard - so I´m sure it´s having a great time - while we miss it! Can you spot it?

There was a lot of cool stuff going on right now at Aros - and I really fell in love with the colours on this huge tiled floor... you should really go and have a look at it all yourself!
Sorry for spamming you if you read my blog through rrs-feeds - I´m still learning to post directly from my "new" mobile to my blog - and it´s not quite working yet...
P.s feet belongs to my daughter and my Mr.K

Christmas market

I´ve been busy packing Christmas cards and making stuff the last weeks - to get ready for the Christmas Market at Bredallund this weekend - so if you are anywhere near Vejle please come by on saturday or sunday between 11- 17. (I´ll only be there saturday).
We are also having a Christmas Market at our studio the 6-7 th december but more on that later.

Sorry about the poor photo quality - but I´ve made some pretty shells with print this year and some snow crystal with Hama-beads - I make them with my daugther and it´s such a cosy thing to sit and do together - because eventually she will start talking about her day, her friends and share her thoughts while our hands are busy...
Kom og kig, køb - og sig hej på lørdag, hvor jeg deltager i julemarkedet på Bredallund ved Vejle. Jeg sælger mine julekort, uglecollager, til & fra kort, smukke skaller med print og snekrystaller der lyser i mørket... og der er mange andre lækre sager at finde.

Der er åbent 11-17 lørdag og søndag - men jeg er der kun lørdag - så kom og sig hej!
Og sæt X i kalenderen den 6-7. december hvor vi holder Julebazar på Kærlighedsstien - mere om det senere...

Pattern design 2008

Like last year - I was asked to design the pattern for a silk scarf sold by the Danish Cancer Society. It´s 65x65 cm - in 100% silk and the price is 129 dkr, and now you can buy it in their webshop here. It´s always a litlle nerve-wrecking to see the final result - but I love how the colours came out in the final print.

My friend came by the studio the other day for some coffee and I snapped this photo of the scarf on her - since her outfit was a perfect match - and I also put together some items from the YouHeShe webshop which I would love to style it with.

I´m in Copenhagen untill wensday - for a magazine design conference - so see you later.

Cones by Cori Kindred

I´m also inspired by the artwork and photos from artist Cori Kindred - I guess she has a soft spot for cones too - make sure to check out her website and Flickr.

Norwegian Cones

I´m also inspired by these lovely cones, made by the Jeanette, from the Norwegian blog Fryd+Design, which I´ve recently added to my blogroll. I think she did a great job and love her photos too. I´m actually half-norwegian - which explains my crazy last name which no one can spell or pronounce - and in case you wonder my first name is danish/norwegian and pronounced like the english word "Sizzle".

Soap Cones

How cute are these soap-cones by Giannarose - seen via Poppytalks great newsletter.
I first thought these soaps were made of white chocolate - yum- imagine that!

Cones inspiration

We have so many cones around our summerhouse - so last year I was looking for some ideas about how to decorate with cones and I couldn´t find any I liked. This year however I spot pretty cone-decorations everywhere - these above are from Rum and Bobedre.
I know it´s early for Christmas stuff - but I´ve got my hands full of christmas projects already - and the first Christmas market coming up this weekend at Bredallund near Vejle.
