Today I am collaborating with the wonderful Becky Lyter McCleery - an inspired mama, writer and teacher. She is the founder of Riasing Loveliness, a gathering space for mothers to come together to bring out the best in ourselves, our children, and one another. She invites you to join her in her mission to cultivate a more compassionate world. The post will contain a new artwork of mine, and will be up 7.00 am U.S. Central Time (14.00 Nordic readers :)).
The theme of following one's dreams seemed absolutely perfect for me, since I started my business from that desire - to pick up on pushed aside dreams and finally allowing my inner child to come out and play, hope and dream in that grand way that children do.
To celebrate this collaboration I have decided to launch a monthly newsletter, and if you sign up, you get a pdf with the illustration published with Becky's article to print and hang wherever it may inspire you too!
I leave you with a sunset - time to enter dreamtime here in Sweden!
I am always so happy to hang around my father's wife.
She always has these interesting creative projects going on and I am always welcome to join her.
One of the things she has taught me is something called nuno felting. It is a Japanese felting method and I love how physical and meditative it is.
I have been away from here forever. I know. I needed to just pause and be with my family for the summer vacation. And so I did. Soaking in the ocean and the sun, the beautiful nature of Summer Sweden. So brief and so lovely.
The oh, so delightful feeling of waves touching toes.
And of course I have been drawing. This one is Tears.
So happy and revived from being in nature all day long for a full month!
I wish you all the best you could hope for. I wish you have/have had as healing a vacation as I did, and if not, that it is in the near future for you.
All my love!
