I like the beauty of the ugly, of the decay, the ordinary. To prove that just because you pass it by for something ordinary or ugly it doesn't mean it is. I want to show the sides that other people don't.

I want to show what other people miss, that dying leaf or that burnt flower... I want to give a place for those who aren't seen. I want to show you the broken, the dying, the sad, the hopeless in nature.

I want to show the beauty no matter if it's a perfect flower or a crooked one.

Updates! Updates! Updates!

I will try to cram a lot of updates on everything from the book project, Panzi project to my life and new creations. Since not everyone want to read everything I will put headlines so you can pick out the good parts  ;)

Good news: Panzi project
I checked out PrintsForPanzi today and realised we've beat the $1 and has now collected $6.46 which is still very low (3 sold prints) BUT we're going somewhere. So if you have some extra money and wall space you don't know what to do with then please support my project.

Book project

This have been on ice since February for me when I got some awful news (still struggling) but I've decided I need to pick this up again. I will try to contact the lady at the print company again to see if she's still interested to meet. Also, another change is that I will try to move the project to my mail since comments/notes easily disappear in my over crowded message centre. So, sorry if I haven't responded!

Feedback on my creations
I'm going over the course of some days do some polls about my prices on creations and I hope you will help me. Also, I have a new line of creations, hip hop and ethnic inspired statement necklaces.

I'm trying to find 7-8mm jump rings with 20 gauge just for these pieces (going badly) so I can finish them all. This prototype  has a hobby felt backside and after doing this one I began wondering if I should sell with or without the felt (if without I will iron on both sides). What do you think? Also, what would you pay for such a necklace?

My life
No job yet but I have an interview on Wednesday for a  job in the autumn, but I'm still desperate for one now since I can't afford living here otherwise (and to even get another apartment I need an income so catch 22). I don't know what to do if I don't get a job within a month. I'm still struggling with everything that is going on in my life. Stuff kind of fell apart in February and I'm not feeling well, it's just too much. I just know that getting an income would make me feel a little less stressed.
