November favourites – part1

Because Inktober has ended, I decided to do another project for November – posting my top favourite artists in my stories on Instagram. But because they are only visible for 24 hours, I’ll post them in 3 parts here too. Some of them is really famous, some of them deserves a lot more attention, getting known by others, so just enjoy my selection πŸ™‚ And if you get inspired for Christmas shopping, all of them has an online shop, so you know, “support small” when you can!

Sunday is my favourite #7

The most interesting day of the week for me is always Sunday. That is my first day-off from my normal day-job, which means the first proper working day as an illustrator and surface pattern designer. So if I am able to, I like to start it early, do a bit of work and then follow the rest of my plans – which is usually more work or meeting my Sister.

I thought I’d make a series about how my Sundays look like, and the reasons for that:

* I have a really bad memory, so I’d like to have sg like a diary, but I cannot do that on paper, because I’d love to insert photos, but my printer is broken..
* Also I’d like to share useful things with you, like how to make yourself happy with a tiny thing (e.g. the joy of making a cup of coffee), places to visit (mostly in London, because I live here), what books or blogs to read etc.

Today’s post will be a my-day-in-pictures post. Because I didn’t make a proper time schedule, however I have had a very productive day, but not a lot of interesting things to talk about πŸ™‚

first I had to transfer some sketches to the watercolour papers for the missing three Inktober paintings (and that’s my lovely lightbox, I can’t tell how much it makes my job easier)
then I went to the Farmer’s Market (love the colours of autumn, don’t you?)
and I had to walk home with tons of heavy stuff, so I thought I deserve a coffee πŸ™‚

did you now there is a Time Capsule list on Spotify? probably based on the year we were born it counts when we were teenagers? because it’s pretty accurate for me, and I don’t normally listen to these songs, so the list cannot be inspired by that. whatever the reason, I loved this list yesterday, I was a big fan of Westlife, then Green Day (not at the same time though, haha), then The Goo Goo Dolls, but I also loved this song The Call by Backstreet Boys, Wannabe by Spice Girls of course, so yes, the list is great πŸ™‚Β

I painted the missing Inktober pages

and I uploaded them in my Etsy shop

I hope you’ve had a nice Sunday too, see you next week! πŸ™‚

Hey Everyone,

Today’s post will be a bit different, because I spent a few days in Copenhagen, so on Sunday I actually spent my day with traveling and unpacking and catching up with my usual everyday stuff, so I did have a productive day, but it wasn’t that interesting, so I thought I’d rather share a few pictures with you about my trip πŸ™‚
The basic story behind this mini holiday: this was our first sister-trip with Fanni, my Sister. We were never able to afford this in the past, but finally we are grown-ups to do this now πŸ™‚ We didn’t even spend a lot on this, we found cheap flight tickets (it was already a bit chilly this time of the year in Copenhagen, but you know, cheap tickets for a little colder weather=totally worth it πŸ™‚ ), we found a room on airbnb, not a whole flat, but a lovely room in a lovely girl’s home (we just spent a few hours to sleep there anyway πŸ™‚ ), and we didn’t spend much on food, except coffee and pastries.. :))

IMG_9002great cafe, lovely staff, wonderful coffee, amazing cinnamon roll – everything just spot on.. we tried a few cafes, but this was our top favourite, it’s called
The Coffee Collective

IMG_9113on Saturday it was raining like crazy, and unfortunately our shoes didn’t manage it too well, so instead of walking and seeing more undiscovered streets and beautiful houses, we visited Design Museum Danmark, and look at this beautiful embroidery…!

IMG_9144also amazing chairs…! (and my Sister πŸ™‚ )

IMG_9083and a light indigo and a light mustard house next to each other?
best two houses ever πŸ™‚

That’s it for today, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post πŸ™‚ If you are planning to visit Copenhagen, don’t hesitate to ask, not like I’m an expert, but maybe I can answer some questions.
Have a lovely week!
