OMG kill me now



 Jewelry design ideas


I'm skeching on new jewelry designs, while listening to prerecorded lectures about social networks. Gonna go and pick up an package with new materials in about an hour, and then I'm gonna make necklaces. Have so many ideas to make real!

All love to prerecorded lectures, but when you have to listen to a person who express ZERO interest and passion and says "eeeeeermhh" more than anything else.... It's more of a test of how good you are at keeping your concentration and not falling asleep (and how much you can take before you start pulling your hair out).. than it is an actual learning session. 
24 minutes down, 40 to go.. I can do this.. yes I can

With a taste of a poison paradise




I'm sitting and waiting for a flash of genius. but maybe that's not how it works..
Today is graphic design- and business day.
So I'm brainstorming and drinking coffee (I wonder what's been mentioned most often here in the blog? I'll put my money on coffee). What I have so far are just little nuggets of wisdom, but I bet they'll fit togheter soon.
I F-in loove graphic design!

Today I have a craving for Christmas dinner. I'm gonna make so much food this winter and christmas it wont fit in the apartment.

Precious


 Photoshop play-around


My brain has been on total turbo-mode lately.
Yesterday night I had so many great ideas I had to get out of bed and get my notebook so that I could empty it out on paper, so that I could get some sleep.

In this moment I'm working on implementing some new functions in the webshop, planning on making a video/infomercial and sorting ideas for a e-book. I'm also gonna start designing some new print stuff for Indora.se today. Also gonna start working on my new art-webshop soon.
There's a disco in my brain, and I love it.  

And yeah.. have to study as well!
A new course in "Social Media" started yesterday. 

Someone say coffee ?

My Indora





With the 2 last weekends being filled with Halloween and birthday parties + this week of hard training, me and my sore muscles have decided to spend this weekend at home.
I'm gonna spend all my time on working on my jewelry business.

Coffee
good food
good music
and love
that's all I need this weekend!

Hurry up, we're dreaming


 A black&white version of my Lana Del Ray illustration



A new found energy emerged today.
I haven't felt all that creative the last few weeks, or the last month really. but today I feel like doing all kinds of creative stuff. a wonderful, missed feeling!
Maybe it's a result of me taking care of some important things on my to do list which caused me a bit of stress before.  

I'm drinking my very late morning coffee. My man has been on vacation from work the last 2 weeks and we tend to not get out of bed until 10 o'clock some days. 
Feel like updating my jewelry supplies. maybe I'll sit down after today's work out and putting together an order!

Die in winter




For the first time in my life I'm not sad about the fall and the coming winter.
It's a weird feeling.
I suppose I have learned that there is no need to fight it, it will not be affected by how I react on it. It's better to just let it sweep over me.
So en garde, winter! I shall not be defeated by you this year!

And I try to act natural


Photoshop play-around


Life is always what you make it.
You can look at things in a negative light, or a positive.
Things just have the meaning, importance, impact, that you choose to give them.
Nothing persists.
You can never blame someone else for how you choose to live, what you choose to create, for what you did with your life.
You will not live forever, your life is short.
There is nothing to gain on feeling bad, you hurt no one but yourself, you don't have to prove anything to no one.
Nothing changes by you feeling sorry for yourself, besides your own frame of mind. and reality.



And with that said, I'm going to the gym to create that strong body

I got sixteen rabbits for president


Saturday night's B-P.A.R.T.Y for my man!
Presents, veggie sausage and a flour-free and (almost) sugar-free cake made by moi


Drinking coffee, getting ready for the gym. 
After that I'm gonna sit down and write a long list of all the things I have to do.
and there's allot. and when they pile them self's up in my head I have the tendency to get stressed out and just not do any of them, cuz I don't know where to start. Brain logic

Today I'm longing for a bigger apartment, with a balcony, a bathtub, a cozy bedroom, a big kitchen and a big work space. 
It'll be nice when that becomes reality.

Fiction and reality melt together for eternity


 Photoshop play-around
 

Forgotten music, beautiful pictures and cloudy thoughts.
Sometimes it's hard to addapt to change. I'm all for challenging myself, but sometimes it would be nice if some challenges could have a time limit.
Sometimes it's good to be naive, as long as you don't stay that way. I'm glad I was naive when I almost 7 years ago made a decision to become a happy person instead of a depressed one. When I thought it would take like a year or two before I could be content, harmonious. Little did I know at the time, that you are never finished with developing, creating and improving yourself. There is no such thing as a perfect mind. And that makes for the biggest challenge of all, for it's strange logic contains all of the others.

Fox it up


 School projekt. Children's book cover. Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop



Think it's done now.
Aprox 12H of work on this. I think it could pass for a book cover.
But probably I'll hate it when I look at it tomorrow again.. hehe
