Not afraid of dying

Untitled
This week has been a lot of fun. On Tuesday Johan and I took a walk down by the river and looked at people partying.

Untitled
I met a friend who had a surgery and we had coffee.

Untitled
A sunny head and today I had breakfast on Eili's balcony.

Tomorrow I'm going to do a job where I will ride a scooter all over Berlin, it's going to be exciting and I told my friends on Facebook that if I die, I want my funeral to contain Champagne, Oysters & Pet Shop Boys. I promise to drive safely. I'm not afraid of dying, but I'm afraid of getting hurt. Fingers crossed I'm gonna be fine!

Thank you all for answering my questions on my previous post, it's been so great getting to know you better and within a few weeks, I will make a post with my answers to your questions. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here and I'll include them in the post :)

Splashes of colour

Untitled
Saw some colourful simple things today, like this hot dog wrapping paper - I felt like I was a kid in the 80's again.

Untitled
Beautiful colourful origami.

Untitled
Passed by Herr Nilsson and bought a small bag of pick and mix candy.

Untitled
Then it was time to walk back home to the studio again and work.

I think I'm going to spend the rest of the evening in my studio.
Happy to be blogging more again and I'm grateful for those of you who are still here, I would love to know more about you! Feel free to share a small presentation of yourself in the comments. Write however you want, or if it's easier - use this list:

Looking so much forward to getting to know you better :)

A Monday in the studio

Untitled
The luxury, my balcony is connected to where I work. Drinking amazing filter coffee there today.

Untitled
I made two more pairs of baby slippers. A customer told me they are the only ones she's tried which have stayed on her baby's feet, so great to hear!

Untitled
This is a preview of a beanie and a one-of-a-kind loop scarf I've been working on for this coming Fall. Will make a shop update with lots of new things in late August. Looking forward to it!

Untitled
The sky today is amazing!

How was your weekend? Mine was great! Been working a lot, hanging out with friends, eating too much pasta and so on.
Happy Monday!

Zug der Liebe

Untitled
Yesterday the police started to block the streets from traffic.

Untitled
It was time for Zug der Liebe, a huge street rave (around 17 000 people were dancing below my balcony) for love, freedom of speech, against fake news. Among other things. And for the love of techno! Berlin loves techno, so do I.

Untitled
15 different trucks were playing super loud amazing music and people were dancing, no one cared about the showers of rain.

Untitled
Johan, Eili and I were dancing on the balcony as well.

Untitled
Great to see so much happy people.

Untitled
Several in great costumes.

Untitled
Lots of smoke were coming out of some of the trucks.

Untitled
Party!

Untitled
And then BSR cleaned up the streets and as soon as the music from the trucks had disappeared, it looked like nothing had happened, but on the inside we were all carrying a techno party.

Currently reading

Untitled
Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre, a classic most people have heard of. I bought it about 15 years ago, started reading and got bored. When I was younger, I was much more interested in stories and didn't bother too much if the language wasn't very good. The goal was to start a book, hopefully liking the story which preferably went from A to B to C and so on, finishing and then filling in my list of which books I had read. I did this from 1993 until around 2010. Moved to Berlin and stared living life more. My eyes have opened up more and more to loving single sentences, words that are written in a way that make me cry, laugh, admire and so on. I think it was The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt that opened up my eyes, every sentence is a piece of art in that book.

If you haven't read the books above, I won't tell you more details about them. Personally I like starting reading a book or watching a film knowing as little as possible.

Untitled
When I opened the book, sensitive to typography as I am, I remembered back in the days when reading something with too small frames around the text - how difficult it was to get a good reading flow. In this case, it doesn't matter as Mr. Sartre had a great flow in his writing.

I asked yesterday what you are currently reading, feel free to continue sharing, it's so much fun to read your comments and to read books in general :)
