summing up 2008

the people
I got to know Camilla better (who actually inspired me to this post) and met Thereza through her blog - and went on a blind date with her. I got a lovely brooch sent to me from Marie-Louise. Thanks to Elisabeth Söderberg Gracia Haby and I got to exchange parcels across the world.

blog, swap and contribution
My first full year as a serious (?) blogger. I participated in my first internet swap making a mobile and receiving one. I also took part in the Scavenger Project (the book is due January 23).

my work
I completed my third big public commission - a series of 11 enamels - an had a solo exhibition. I got myself a new website with a shop (yes - I have one. Better start saving up now; I'm planning to make it better and offering more). I was in Mankind Mag.

I tried London.

... and what does the fish have to do with this? My New Year Resolution: More Marketing!

Söta Alexandra,
Fin läsning och mycket att tänka på, intressant att summera året på det här viset.
Och visst ska vi väl träffas "in real" nån gång under året.
Såg att du tänker flytta tillbaka till Göteborg (Lycka,lycka till med det!)
Hoppas det blir en bra start på det nya året!!!!!!!!!!

Jeg har så stor respekt for at du har haft modet til at "try London"!
Jeg er spændt på hvad 2009 bringer dig af oplevelser og kreative udfoldelsesmuligheder - et er sikkert; jeg kommer og kigger:-)))
Jeg synes du er en utrolig talentfuld kunstner, og jeg ønsker dig al mulig lykke og held - også med markedsføringen ;-) i det nye år.
