care for a cuppa?

This is what I'm doing now - cups cups and more cups. And saucers. It's for my next exhibition at Aniara Gallery, which I have named Java (which is an island in Indonesia where I lived 2 years during my childhood, but it's also Swedish slang for 'coffee' (!).

But tomorrow my girls and I are leaving for Gothenburg. They have a week off from school and are going off to see friends. I'm planning to see some exhibitions, meet with friends and bring back the remainders of my exhibition at Rum för Papper.

 A day off to go to my colleague Ebba for an embroidery workshop with some other fellow Kaleido members. Pure pleasure!
we started off by drawing each other without looking at the paper
then we chose an interesting detail
on my way...

last minute prep

Last minute preparations; books for the shop and a quick combing of dog before leaving her to the dog trimmer. Too long haired as usual. These journals/sketchbooks will be for sale at Rum för Papper during my exhibition. The covers are of different materials; paper (with illustrations on the endpages), book cloth and leather. The sheets inside are acid-free, white, suitable for writing or drawing. Lousy lighting, not very flattering photos.

Tomorrow morning I'll catch a train at 7.40 am for Gothenburg. Now a walk with Asta - back from the trimmer with a crew-cut, and then to bed. Good night!

books in the making

Febrile activity in my studio making journals & sketchbooks for dear life. Leaving as I am for Gothenburg Thursday morning, to attend the small exhibition, Resor utan mål (i.e. Travels without destination) at the paper shop Rum för Papper. I'm exhibiting a selection of paper art objects, and in a corner there will be my handmade paper goods. Aside from my stuff, the shop is full of paper in all sizes, textures and colors. Feel the need for something to doodle in or to jot down your genius ideas in? This is the place to find it.
