Last Day of October and Some News!

Oh my! October has been quite a busy month! Among other things, I've photographed, edited and updated my shop with another line of new origami patterns that I've designed. It's been exciting and once again I have to say thank you and tell you how happy I am that the origami collection has been received so well. In the next few days I will post a few pics of the new patterns here on the blog as well!

The origami collection started out more as a fun and extra addition to my clothing line, but I've noticed during these last six months since I launched it, that it has taken on a larger proportion than I expected and could ever imagine.

During the summer I was sewing my dress orders during daytime and folding origami orders during night time. During late summer I realised that I couldn't juggle both at the same time any longer because the workload got to big. I'm a clothing designer at heart and always will be, but my heart also beats fast for graphic design, pattern making, origami, hand craft and paper products. Which is why I've now chosen to switch the bigger focus of my company to paper/origami and graphic design. From now on I will continue to expand the paper section with more origami patterns and other paper products - which feels like an amazing and very exciting thing! (And of course a bit of a scary and hard descision to make)! I'm hoping that I will still make a garment and put up for sale now and then, and some Liberty dresses will still be available in my shop. But from now on the big focus will be on paper products and graphic design! :D

Another thing: During the weekend I made a short trip to southern Sweden to visit my family and in a corner of a big parking lot I noticed these amazing dahlias. There has been an ongoing dahlia theme here on the blog since this summer and I just had to post these late bloomers as well. I was surprised that it was still 16 °C in southern Sweden - a wonderful interruption in the middle of the grey rainy Gothenburg autumn weather! ;)

See you in a few days!

P.S. I now also have a VSCO Grid that I update I little now and then! :)

Autumn With A Summer Feeling

Untitled I'm slowly processing that autumn has actually started here! The leaves are changing colours but the air is still pretty warm. The bazaar we held a few weeks went very very well. A huge thank you to everyone who showed up and all the great designers that participated! :)

Lately I've been working on some new patterns for my origami items that will be added to the shop this month. I'm happy and overwhelmed that the response have been so great since I launched the paper collection in late spring and I want to thank all of you for the positive feedback and lovely comments about it!

Happy October! See you soon! :)
