An endless circle

Blog, Creativity, Scribbles

Looking back on the year 2014….I could have done more creative stuff…thinking about the coming year…I should do more creative stuff…yes an endless circle *hihi*

I think what I take with me from this last year to the next is to make time for myself. I have had a few stress-related issues the last 6 months so mental note for myself: CHILL!

I also know I will have lots to do the coming 6 months, since it is my last term at the university….when summer comes I am a graduated teacher, subjects: art and english ^^ so then I stumbled over this…

Write something that makes you happy on a piece of paper every day and put it into the jar. At the end of the year tip the jar out and re-live all those scrummy, smiley moments! Plus whenever you need a pick-me-up, dig into your jar and read your happy thoughts!” (Link through picture)

…and I thought that this might actually be something I will be needing during the spring, small notes for myself that make me happy when I feel like my essay will kill me in my sleep *haha* (Yeah, I will be writing one last huge essay)

I have also found this journal on deviantart!

Duel of the fates by Qrumzsjem

Press the picture to get to the journal of Suzanne-Helmigh 🙂

So many good pointers on how to think, go about your art and her own goals for next year and she has also linked to lots of journals in the bottom bringing up more on the subject to lift yourself as an artist through different intreseting point of views. To be honest I have not had the time to read it all yet but I have saved the link for a rainy day ^^


Just one more! 😀

The artist Fran Krause has made illustrations to spoken “Deep Dark Fears”, some are really wicked, link through the picture above! the one above is just one of many 😉 Can you relate? or do you have anything else to put on the list? I think my own deep dark fear would be to fall down stairs, and the worst thing is that I am a bit clumsy sometimes and always when I go down stairs I imagine myself falling because then I would be prepared if it was to happen… yeah…happy new year! *haha*

I will not look back more than this on my previous year, if you want to check out what I have been up to during the year of 2014, scroll down and just browse the archive ^^

Have a nice continuation of christmas and stuff !


Blog, Creativity

Grandma’s only wish for christmas is to get better health, so my boyfriend got a great idea; lets give her a glas jar with her favorite candy(my faves too hihi) and then give the jar a nice title; (in english) happy-pills, (in swedish) lyckopiller 🙂



Favorite candy: almond with dark chocolate around and then rolled in cinnamon, it tastes like love 😉


Gingerbread castle

Blog, Creativity

Yesterday it was time to put together the gingerbread castle of Elsa’s castle from frozen I have been working on(see earlier posts). I had help from my lovely boyfriend ❤



Those burnt edges….ehum every now and then we forgot about the gingerbread in the oven so a few pieces got really burnt as you will see…







And after lots of hours we could finally start decorating this whole thing! The two kids helped on and off during the day, but got more interested when it was time to finish it!









And then the kids made Anna, Elsa and Olaf 🙂






It did go faster than I thought to make this! I can now say: I have built a castle with my boyfriend! 😉

We are already making plans for next years project!


Finished painting !

Blog, Creativity

Remember the painting I wanted to burn a while back, well I really didn’t like hos the creatures turned out, so I simple changed it!

This is where I stopped painting last time I held my brushes…



Tadaaa! problem gone!


And then I felt like finish it ^^



And just in a few minutes I’ll make a portfolio-update with better pictures of the final result! 🙂


Not backing down

Blog, Creativity



I will reuse forms that I have already made and I will also save my time on using ice cream cones as towers. I promise I really do have a vision!
Though I think I might change the “base”


I might just use the rectangle form and skip the back support, they are just incase 🙂


Funny thing, I called the mother of the two children who will get this castle och gingerbread. She says that she has tried to talk to her children about this castle, perhaps we could make an ordinary, her children answered:
-No that’s no need, Linnéa can do it, no problems…
And then she tells me that her children have already braged about that they will get Elsa’s castle from Frozen in school!
No pressure, no not at all *haha*

Now I gonna take a piece of candy and tell myself I will be able to keep my hands off it until christmas at least!! (Counting from tomorrow)
