New friend in the garden

Well, actually it's me that's the new one. She has been here for years. But I feel very lucky to have her here!
I haven't seen a hedgehog since I was in primary school. The pic is a bit bad because I couldnt go so close. When she sees me, she stands completely still and plays dead.

It's lovely summer weather here, and I'm sending you my love!

Men only

I've been working on a new t-shirt print for a while. It is for men's t-shirts only and I have a guest designer this time. The print is made from an art photo by Jørgen Schøyen Nicolaysen.
The photo is called "A crow's car castle."

Jørgen was kind and modelled for the photos!
We found some wonderful decay and tagging that worked well as a background for the t-shirt.

I have this t-shirt in all sizes from S to XXL. You can find it in my Etsy shop and my Epla shop.
As an introduction offer, you can get this t-shirt with free shipping until August 10. Just enter the coupon code: BLOGFREESHIPPING when you order on Etsy. If you're ordering on Epla, please write "Fri frakt" in message to seller. (I will refund the shipping later via Paypal.)

Here's the original photo. I have reworked it in Photoshop to make it suitable for printing.

I had to include this photo because I look so incredibly grumpy. -But I'm not! -I'm just concentrating. I think this might be the expression I have when my students say: "What? -What's wrong now?"

Sad days

Our democracy have been attacked.
The bomb in Oslo and the massacre on Utøya have left us all in shock and in sorrow.
I wake up every morning haunted by the image of the teenagers who were hunted down and killed.

We will remember them and we will keep up the work for our country to remain a country of love and freedom.

My teatowel in Switzerland

Céline from Switzerland sent me this lovely photo of her Strand teatowel drying outside. Thank you, Céline! I'm always happy to see my designs in their new homes!

I'll be busy this week preparing for a craft fair this weekend. (Kunst- og håndverksmarked i Lillesand.) The rest of my kitchen will just have to wait...

Have a lovely week!

Kunst- og håndverksmarked i Lillesand

Til helgen finner du meg og tingene mine på kunst- og håndverksmarkedet i Lillesand. En fin sjanse til å få prøve t-skjortene på!

Håper vi sees!

In the mailbox this week

I want to share some Etsy finds that I found in my new mailbox this week.
Here's a very cool t-shirt from The Medium Control, with the Futura font. It will be great at work, I think.

And I couldn't resist this collage drawing, "Fabric Addict" from Aunty Cookie.
Aunty Cookie (Shannon Lamden from Australia) has the coolest prints & blog.
(Actually, I think she is too good...)

I bought my second hemp skort from Gaia Conceptions. Eco friendly and lovely clothing.
The skort is very practical, since it's a shorts and a skirt at the same time. (So you can wear a short skirt and still feel decently dressed.)

The skirt came wonderfully wrapped with the lovliest dried flowers.

House sneak peak

Hi there! I'm busy moving and renovating these days. I thought you'd might like a small peak into the new house.
This is the kitchen and the workshop. I need to make new flooring and the kitchen needs new cupboards.
So it's a bit difficult with shop orders at the moment. I have to drive to my ex to pack my orders.

Son painting floors in bedroom.

Of course, my son made sure that the internet, tv and music was up and running very soon!

The cat (Tulla, 14) has found a new favorite spot in the window.
