Hello darlings!.I just wanted you to know that the last day to order in my webshop and to be sure to get it in time before Christmas (For all of you who lives within the boarders of Scandinavia.) is on Sunday, December 16. If you live in another country outside Scandinavia and want to order Christmas gifts in my shop… I’m sorry but I can’t guarantee anything. But the sooner, the better! <3.
Right now I’m both working extra at my old job and working on a big mural in Kallebäck. So I won’t be in the studio every day. But you are of course always more then welcome to swing by the studio to just say hello or by prints directly from me. Here I also have black, thin aluminum frames in several sizes as well as gift papers. Just contact me before (sms, call och e-mail) to be sure that I’m there or to book a date.
This Saturday I will also be at my last design market in a very looong time! Then, you will find me at “Jul på Lindholmen“. Open 12-20. So, please drop by and say hi! Such a lovely place filled with Christmas spirit, tasty food and lots of cool design.
Then, I will take a very long brake actually. Almost a year. Because soon it’s time for me to be a mama! <3 (only 2 & 1/2 months left!) We can’t wait to meet this little person! But more about that in an other post… ;)
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! <3
Big hug / Sanna

2019 Calendar – NEW!
Last year I made my very first calendar! I was so incredibly happy about the lovely response so I felt that I had to make a new one for 2019. So here it is! And this year I added new new print Fox’n’roll as well :)
In this calendar, you’ll find 12 of my “human animals” from the series “Animal Instinct”.When folded together, the calendar is almost in size with an A4 (21 × 27 cm) and when folded out, twice as big (21 x 54 cm).
The calendar is printed in a limited edition on 180 g of natural white art paper.Once the year has passed, you can also cut the pictures and frame them. The perfect Christmas gift for a person who likes art and at the same time might need some help to organize the daily life.
This is what it looks like :)
Dimensions folded together: 21×27 cm (Front)
Dimensions folded out: 21×54 cm.
Plenty of space to write and make plans. Please note that the Calendar is in english!
And the back (12 of my human animals).
This is what it looks like in out kitchen :)
Once the year has passed, you can also cut the pictures and frame them.
This is what “August”/Hipster goat looks like in my home studio.
And now finally you’ll find this Calendar in my webshop! :) Hope you like it!

Fox’n’roll – NEW PRINT!
I felt that it was about time for me to draw a new family member. I’ve been thinking about making a skater for a very long time now. But it wasn’t until I met Brillmans brädor at Farmers market for a few weeks ago that I felt that now… Now it’s really about time! (They make new, cool stuff from old, broken skate boards. Check them out! :)
And how come a fox? Well.. They are very cute I must say. But maybe it had something to do with our road trip in Slovakia and Poland this summer. When we were hiking in the mountains in Slovakia one day, we met a very curious and friendly little fox. And from that day… I’ve might have had a crazy crush for foxes ;)
And here are as usual, some pictures from the drawing process.
A little statement doesn’t hurt.
And here she is! (Or is it a he?) Framed and ready! Let me introduce our latest family member… (drum roll) Fox’n’roll!
Now you’ll find Fox’n’roll as signed art prints and posters in several different sizes together with the rest of the crew in my webshop.
Now I’m home again after an, once again, magical weekend at Farmers Market at Strömma Farm lodge in Tvååker, Sweden. I mean… This market and it’s location… It’s so idyllic! Thank you so much everyone involved for a great weekend! I’m so happy to be part of this market. I cross my fingers to see you here again next year! <3
I didn’t bring any companion during the market this time. So, unfortunately, I didn’t have time to run around and take pictures. But! Farmers Market has put together lots of beautiful pictures and stories from the weekend on their own Instagram. So head over there and have a peek! @farmersmakretse
The next upcoming market where you’ll find me is on Töringe Design Market on October 13th. You’ll find us at the address Töringe 414 Borgasgård in Falkenberg, between 11am-17pm.
Hope to see you there! <3

Fabfeministas design market.
On Friday and today, Saturday I’ve been atFabfeministas design market in Nordstan. In the middle of Gothenburg’s largest shopping mall!Such lovely market and so well arranged!(It’s the same crew who’s behindLindholmens designmarkad here in Gothenburg.)
“Unfortunately,” it was the best summer weather ever outside (30 degrees and sun), which means that most people hung on the beach rather than in town. Which one might can understand. It’s not often you want to complain about this amazing summer weather we’ve had here in Sweden lately, but I almost wished for rain to get more people inside now when they have arrange this market so well.But we had a great time anyway!So this will not be the last time I’m here, I hope!
Here are some pictures from my two days at Fabfeministas design market.
Me and my amazing boyfriend who helps me to pack, drive all my stuff and bring snacks when my stomach is hungry. I’m so incredibly grateful and happy that I have you by my side! Thank you so much for all your help as a usual darling! <3
But it’s not over yet! The market runs tomorrow as well (Sunday, July 15.).So be sure to drop by if you’re in the neighborhood!So many pretty things!
Last Saturday it was time for “Häng på Hamngatan” in my dear hometown Uddevalla. An event where the inner city is brought to life with music from all corners of the world, foodtrucks, design markets and much more. It feels a bit special to go there with my prints. It was the first time in my hometown actually! And what a day we had! So many dear meetings with new happy faces, old friends, colleagues and family in lovely Swedish summer weather! <3
My dear and talented photographer friend Lisa Sihlberg lectures about our beautiful nature and how we should take care of it.www.lisasihlberg.com
…and little me again.
Thank you all who dropped by and visited last Saturday! We had such a wonderful day! I really hope to see you all again soon. <3
Big hug! / Sanna.

Design market in Jönköping.
Now I’m back home again after a lovely weekend in Jönköping. Because this weekend I’ve been hanging out at a design market simply called, Design market.
I’ve been there a few times before and it’s always such a pleasure to participate at this market. This time we stayed at A6’s shopping mall and it looked a little bit like this.
Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend! Hope to see you all again soon! <3

A trip to Gran Canaria with Lagerhaus.
You might have seen at my Instastory lately that I’ve been at Gran Canaria for a while and wondered what that’s all about? Well, I’ll gladely tell you! ;)
Before moving to my present studio in Vasa, I shared a studio with two other lovely girls at Redbergsplatsen in Gothenburg. One of them was Maria who then ran her own children’s clothing brand – Cloo collection (and from the very first day she also became a very dear friend). After a while Maria changed course and has now been working as a market coordinator for Lagerhaus for a few years. Which means among other things, that she works with all Lagerhaus’s social media channels and with photographing all their products.
Lagerhaus / Maria was going to Gran Canaria to photograph their new summer collection. A few days before departure they understood that they might would need an extra hand. Since I got a pretty flexible job Maria thought of me and asked me if I could help her for a week. Which I of course loved to! ;) So then it was just to pack the bags and head to the sun!
Here are some pictures from our week.
First day! Maria making instastories at the terrace.
A luggage full of Lagerhaus’s lovely summer products.
Before and after styling.
It’s a sweaty job being an assistant.
…But someone’s gotta do it.
The benefits of “all inclusive“.
Flowering cacti as far as the eye can reach.
A “fishy” floor. <3
Taking pictures of matching “parasol plates”.
“it’s in the bag”
Me and my darling friend <3
Sunset picnic photoshoot.
The hotell by night.
Hunting colorful walls in Las Palmas.
You will probably recoginize that little hand in some of Lagerhaus’s product pictures this summer ;)
We had such a wonderful week!Thank you Maria and Lagerhaus for letting me join you on this trip! <3
And you know what? Now YOU can win a trip to Gran Canaria! Because Lagerhaus’s having a competition in cooperation with the travel company – Tui!Just follow Lagerhaus on Instagram! You’ll find pictures from our trip as well as all information about how you participate in this contest at their instastory.GOOD LUCK!

Lindholmen street design market
As some of you already might have seen on Instagram, I spent yesterday at Lindholmen street design market here in Gothenburg. It was my first time at this market and I really hope it won’t be my last! Such a cool place!
I had so much fun that I forgot to take any photos so I borrowed some pictures from their website. But I warmly recommend a visit! Such a cool building (like an old factory), lots of tasty food from all corners of the world and a great design market as well of course! ;)
My dear friend Felicia Enander with her lovely (and brand new) ceramic brand Mackapino.
Thank you everyone who dropped by yesterday!<3 As I said, I really don’t hope this was the last time at Lindholmen street design market (and if there will be more occasions, I will of course give you some heads up first!).
And do you know what else? Soon it’s time for me to pack my suitcase! Because on Wednesday I will go with Maria who works as market coordinator at Lagerhaus, to Gran Canaria and photograph their products in a beautiful holiday environment for a week. It will not be boring! ;)
Talk to you soon!

Get free tattoos during Easter!
Now I just got a few left of my “fake-tattoos” and I thought that I would like to give the last ones to you. Not only are they pretty on the skin! They are also actually perfect to decorate the Easter eggs with! ;)
So during Easter I will add some fake tattoos for free with all orders made from now until Monday, April 2. (I don’t have that many left so if they would run out I will of course add an other Easter gift in your order. <3 )
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

Under the surface – NEW PRINT!
And then it was finally time to make a friend to “Lady in black” in the limited edition series – Dancing ink.
I’ll never stop being fascinated by how the ink dances around when you drop it into water. It’s really hypnotic to watch! This is just one tiny drop of ink that I dropped into a glass of water… and it just keep dancing like there was no tomorrow. So beautiful.
…And trying to capture this beautiful scenery with just pencils on paper is really easier said than done. To draw abstract is (for a little self-critical, perfectionist like me)… very difficult! But after an x-number of “This-didn’t-turn-out-as-I-planned-sketches” she was finally there on the paper.I call this illustration for… Under the surface.
And this is how the “in the making process” looked like.
I took pictures of the dancing ink and used them as inspiration.
Gave a sneak peek on Facebook and Instagram.
The home office.
Then I put a little ballet dancer in there aaand voila! It’s finished! :) After that I scanned the drawing and sent it to the printers.
Home delivery! Fresh from the oven!
All numbered and signed by hand.
There are only 250 limited edition art prints of “Under the surface”. Which means that this illustration will not be re-printed when it’s sold out.
This is what she looks like in a frame.
And this is what she looks like together with her best buddy “Lady in black”.
You can now find this limited art print together with the rest of the crew in my webshop.
Hope you like her! :)

DIY – Oil lamps out of old bottles.
Are you like me and sometimes buy various drinks only because of that the bottles are pretty?
And then suddenly you have lots of empty bottles at home that are a little too good looking to throw away? Now I’ve got the solution of what to do with them! Turn your old bottles into oil lamps. Perfect to brighten up dark winter days like these. It’s very simple and they turn out soo nice! So! I felt I had to share the tip here.
What you need is:
One or several bottles that you think are pretty.
Oil lamp wick
Oil lamp nozzle (I’m not sure about that translation here. But you get the picture)
The bottles we used at home. (And Yes! We like gin in our family ;)
Then just fill the bottle with lamp oil. The more lamp oil you have in the bottle, the better flame you’ll get. Pull the wick into the nozzle and put it in the bottle. Allow the wick to absorb the oil for about 15 minutes before turning it on. And voila!:)
Easy peasy! :)
