Today

Right now doors are open to our new neighbours – CLART STUDIO.
Owned by our coolest friends;
Jennie – Kollijox art.
Lisa Burenius – art and more
Frida Eklund – ceramics
All these talented ladies under the same roof.
They have a ‘sneak peak’ today and next weekend, open between 11-15 o’clock. The start of next year they are moving in full time. 

In our FGL we have Marlene – Fruvintage with us today and
Marie- Axkonstochkeramik
Marlene selling her tasty coffee with a purpose – love how some of the profit supports Läkarmissionen. People who help others in need are my favourite people. Thanks for having the biggest heart Marlene. The coffee she sell is the best gift for this christmas. 

Marie – a warm, funny, creative soul to. Always loved her way of creating artwork.
At FGL we sold her blue cups back in the days, and we still get emails regarding these.
Now you can buy them through her, today at FGL or at her shop.

We put together a set of pyjama pants+shirt and robes+pants, almost sold out, few piece left. Useful for all agees – a comfy pyjama set could be something everyone loves.


Bea from Blomsterbaren from next door came in to help us trying our new dress that needs some final adjustment. 
When it’s 100% I think this could be our finest piece in next years collection.

Kristin loves Doris. She is so damn cute I don’t blame her.
Always gets heaps of cuddles like this, she’s a real queen and knows how to look extra cute while we eat. Treats for Doris if she’s lucky.

I’m not in the store today, resting in our sofa.
Will decorate little bit more and might do a quick visit in to the city, I woke up at 2.00 am last night so starting to feel tired now. The rain kept me company till 5.00 am and after that I feel a sleep again, till 7.00 .

Welcome to Blomsterbaren.
Every week we see the girls next door, I usually run in to heat up my food and always get taken all the beauty in there.

Shop is full of decoration and inspiration.
If you are lucky Doris might be in there too.

The latest news is that we’re gonna get new neighbours at the start of next year.

trying again..

Hi,

Gonna be completely honest with you. Last week I started three different post that I was planing to finish, but the energy was not there fully.
It was both high and lows and I was drained.
I’m trying again today and hope my focus is back.
When I woke up this morning it was so beautiful outside, crispy air and -5 degrees.

Mornings like this are my favourite.
I went out to let our girls out. They don’t mind the cold weather at all. Our viking hens. hahah!

We keep our doves in the barn as well and we have two new members born last week; baby doves, the sound from them is so cute.

I’m soon heading into the city to our beloved FGL Store and after that I’m gonna see my midwife.
Not many appointments left now. Exciting. Hospital bag is ready and so are we.

Before I finish this post I need to tell you about upcoming weekend.
Jenny & Jens will join us at FGL. Great artwork.

& after closing time the have a workshop for kids, few tickets left.

”Workshop för barn, med illustratören Jens Brandt Grönberg”

Datum: 1/12 – 2018 Tid. 15.30:00-18:30

I december får du som är mellan sex och tio år chansen att vässa dina rittekniker tillsammans med illustratören och grafiska formgivaren Jens Grönberg Brandt.

Den 1 december håller Jens Brandt Grönberg en workshop för barn som älskar att rita. Jens har varit grafiker och illustratör i över 20 år och jobbat med allt ifrån reklam och konst till läroböcker.

Genom individuell handledning vägleder, stöttar och vässar han varje deltagares kunskap, önskan och inte minst inspiration.

Deltagarna ritar sina favoritmotiv och får hjälp och enkla tips kring saker som hur man till exempel illustrerar ett särskilt ansiktsuttryck, fångar en känsla eller ritar ett knepigt perspektiv.

Inga dyra material eller skärmar krävs, det är back to basics med papper och penna som gäller.

Begränsat antal platser. Allt material ingår och under kvällen serveras smörgås & dricka.

 

Enjoy your Monday

Things to look forward to

Hi team,

Just thought I make a quick update about what’s going on in Lovely FGL Store right now.

-Today our campaign ends – on our most sold dresses. Worth checking out. 

If you thinking about christmas gifts already I know a workshop with Lisa Burenius would be a great experience to give someone you love. That includes yourself as well!
A creative afternoon together with us in FGL, you get to paint without no rules. If you think of it, we as grown ups never do stuff where it’s ok to just let go of all expectasions.

Lisa guides you through how to become a artist. It’s something special when you can be creative,
just be yourself and go with the flow. Such an inspiring afternoon together.

We have had this work shop for four occassions and it has given me so much joy each time.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR CREATIVE HEALTH –

Another thing I want to share with you is our Utbildningsdag, a day full of insights.

Kristin and I share our story on how we built our buisness together. 5 years as we speak.
We started out as a pop up shop just before christmas in 2013. But it sure has been more than a pop up.

We have invited lecturer Emma Gunnarsson from Finnveden Säljkraft,
Emma Gunnarsson is an inspiring and great lecturer who will tell you about the different personality types found in society.
She gives knowledge and lots of energy and makes you  think about how you can handle different personality types. Emma also works as a moderator throughout the day.

Hanna Wendelbo is a designer with special expertise in pattern design, she will share how she works and she has a lot of experience from years back, “high and lows” and how to became better in what you do.

We will have plenty of time for smaller and larger discussion groups, work around specific topics and by the end of the day we will have a dinner together. I’ll promise you won’t regret this day, it’s so for filling, many of us in this industry work mostly on our own – get together with likeminded souls is so good.

If you work with social media today and want to join us for this day – press here. Few spots left!

Now it’s time for a Sunday in the sunshine. Enjoy!

November already

Can’t believe how fast the months passes by nowadays, getting closer and closer to our due date.
Still got a lot of things to get ready I think? If you could get ready thou?

My week started out pretty fantastic. Press release off the new brand Alvalinen.

We had a breakfast together in Palmhuset and listened to Dibella who come all the way from Bangalore, India. He’s a CEO of a big factory who works with Organic cotton.

He gave us an insight into indian cotton industry. It’s deeply sadening, but very important.
I enjoy hearing the story behind the brand. Their values are important to me. We shared it all. Kristin & I work in the same way and driven by making a change for people .

The styling behind these pictures is Charlotte Ryding & Anna Furbacken.

Over to my Tuesday.

Spent my day at FGL store. Always a pleasure.
Tuesday todo: release day on our newest member – Polka dot shirt so now there’s a whole set.
Skirt, duster & shirt. Amazing all together.

When I sit to much by the computer my stomache aches.
So last night I was resting a lot on the floor. The perks of being pregnant.

I’m getting deeper into my pregnancy, so Wednesday was a day of relaxation.
Found old pictures and realized I look a lot like my mom when she was pregnant with me.

Thursday – Was lucky to be out all day in the sunshine.

Watching our new doves being outdoors in the wild for the first time . They are so stunning and funny.

Thursdays are always extra special nowadays cause baby goes into a new week. Welcome 35!

I finally got my girls up again.  Two from Lisa & one piece from Jenny.

Friday .
This morning it was breathwork and breakfast at Holdits office. What a start on a Friday!
A special thanks to Michelle who made us the honor with a yoga Nidra.

Lisa & Kristin.

I’ve been an ambassador for Holdit for a while and wanted to show my friends Varbergs finest office space. A get together over a breakfast with likeminded souls are always fun! You always leave the table with new insights and ideas.

It must be something with Varberg and all creative minds in the city.
So many succesful buisnesses in one place. Lucky to call many of them my friends.
Holdits office is having a fantastic view overlooking the harbour.

just after our morning I went to FGL store to met up with a girl for an interview. We need some help in the shop the next couple of months . So fingers crossed we find someone special .

Before this work week ends I have one more shift to do. FGL between 11-15 o’clock.
Don’t miss out on our campaign right now 20% Off on our dresses.  
Ends tomorrow night.
