Gotland 2015

Hello Monday!

I'm back from 5 days of gorgeous sunshine away from computers and work and it feels great! We packed our swimsuits, camera and weekend bags in our car and took the 3 hour ferry to Gotland. This was my second time visiting this beautiful Swedish island and this visit was just as fun if not better than the first. Instead of rushing around to see as much of the island as we could as we did the first time around we could relax. 

Even though I have a very free job where I can choose my own hours, it's still very nice to have vacation. It was great to spend time with friends, get some sun on the beach, and freeze my booty off in the Swedish ocean.

 We also just purchased a new camera with video. So it was extra fun to take photos and even more fun to capture all of these little clips and put them together into this fun video. Hope you get an even better feel of how gorgeous summer in Sweden can be.

So now I'm completely relaxed and ready to get tons of more work done. I've got several exciting launches coming up so stay tuned!

Blogger What's in my Bag: Ashley of Sugar and Cloth

Hello Saturday!

Where have I been? I have no idea and I'm not going to even attempt to make excuses because there are none. Let's talk about this pretty illustration instead.

This year I wanted to bring back my Blogger What's in my Bag series but instead of forcing myself to feature someone every month I've been really selective. This month I was so tickled that Ashley of Sugar and Cloth not only replied to my email but actually wanted to be a part of my series. Woo hoo! So here are her picks for her What's in my Bag illustration. Pretty nice right?!

If you'd like to take a peek at all of the lovely ladies I've featured in my series head on over to my Blogger What's in my Bag Pinterest board.

Also if you'd like one for yourself you can pop over to my Etsy shop and find my Custom What's in my Bag illustration.

Let Me Introduce You to New EmmaKisstina Stockists

Hello Wednesday!

Long time no see. Where have I been? First I had a very irritating cold (may have blown my nose 5 million times in 3 days, which also left me with no energy to do anything else, grrr) and then my parents came to Stockholm for a visit, so not much work got done then either. But it was amazing having them here to show them what my life is like in Sweden. Nothing like spending time with your family when you only get to see them in person every other year or so.

Anywho, back to business. This Spring I've had the pleasure of adding 3 stockists, woo hoo! Let me introduce you to 3 stores now carrying my prints and products.

In Sweden: Wågat och Schöönt
Here in Malmö you can find a selection of my prints, scarves, makeup bags, and soon my acrylic trays.

In Switzerland: Stina's Café
Here in Luzern you can find a large selection of my silk scarves.

In USA: Colori
Here in San Marino, California you can find a selection of my silk scarves, prints and makeup bags.

I hope to add even more new stockists real soon.

New Illustrations

 Hello Wednesday!

Since getting my new big fat square sketchbook I've been prompted to draw all the time, which is great because for awhile I didn't draw very much. (What ever works!) So in my free time I've been drawing tons of new illustrations both for fun and for my shop illustrations and other products.

First up an illustration inspired by popular French pharmacy products. I think this print would be perfect for any bathroom. The French seem to really know what they are doing in the beauty department. Anyone else a fan of French pharmacy products?

I was looking through my shop and noticed that I don't have any prints with sunglasses but one. This had to be rectified right away, and here is my new sunglasses print! I think I'd also like to do another version in the future with different colors and patterns on the glasses. Wouldn't that be fun?!
