HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRECIOUS SISTER!

I think all of you, who are blessed with a sister, knows how wonderful it is to share your life with someone, that loves you so unconditionally as only a sister can do. In my case, I also have the privilege of my sister being my best friend, which I certainly cannot take for granted...so I want to thank her for that on this special day:
 
This is for you, Sussi!
We have have shared so much through the years, both sad and beautiful moments, and sometimes I wonder what happened to them all? Seems like they are so far away, like we just passed through them like a breeze. But when I think about it, I realize that they are just in front of me. All of these moments are you and me and what we share this present day. It's the very thing that connects us and binds our life together and I'm forever grateful for this. So I want to thank you, for being my big sister, my best friend, my business partner....and simply for being in my life. You mean the world to me! 
Have a beautiful happy birthday!
 
Hugs Annika
  
 
 

WOOD TEXTURES AND FLOORS

I love wooden floors. It adds a natural and fresh style to a house. I also think it's kind of charming with older floorboards that sing, when you walk on them. 
As a graphic artist you work a lot with textures and I often photograph things or materials in ways that I can later use as textures. I have with time acquired quite an extensive collection of textures and one of my favorite materials are wood. I never get tired of this versatile and organic material. Wood is also excellent as backgrounds for photography and I like to use the floor instead of a table, when photographing. This also gives me a lot of space to work on.
 
Have a great day! /Annika

INSPIRATIONAL PLACES TO TURN TO

I actually wanted to post this yesterday, but we had to go shopping at Ikea for things for our almost finished office. And the day just flew by, so I thought it would make for a bit of Sunday inspiration instead.
I photograph pretty much every day and I don't think I would be the same without it. I remember when I first started out and how it taught me to see things very differently. How it very much opened my eyes to the details around me and the beauty of simplicity. I began to see light everywhere and learned how it changes throughout the day. How it bounces of surrounding things and materials, how certain colors absorb light better than others and how some are more beautiful in the shade. I'm pretty convinced it has made me a better person and helps me appreciate the beauty of life, despite all the suffering and cruelty out there, and that it always gives me an encouraging and inspirational place to turn to. All this makes me very grateful.
 
Have a wonderful Sunday! /Annika

CATCHING A PERFECT MOMENT

It has been a beautiful afternoon here on Fyn, Denmark. The sun was setting and got to snap a few photos (I'll show you a series tomorrow) with amazing light and colors. This tulip picture is one of them and for you photography enthusiasts, I think you all know what the feeling is like, when you take a picture and it doesn't need any post-processing. To catch THE perfect moment. To me it's one of the most treasured aspects of photography, not always easily achieved, but when able to compose that perfect image, with a flawless light, and knowing, when you later publish that image, that this is exactly what that moment looked like...Well, it's a beautiful thing. 
I know there's a lot of programs out there, that easily can make any picture look good and maybe it's just beacuse of that, that this means so much to me. But what I really enjoy knowing is, that I have put all my effort and presence into that one picture and that's what the image reflects.
 
Have a great evening! See you tomorrow! /Annika
 

SPRING WHIFFINGS

I went to work with my sister today, to photograph some of all the flowery creations she makes. It's always fun to watch her work and to help out, but it's really hard walking amongst all these flowers and whiffs of spring and not wanting it to be April already. It has been so cold here the last couple of weeks and all this greenery just make you want to sit on a park bench, take of your shoes, drink a cup of cocoa and enjoy an early spring sun and the promises of warmer months to come. /Annika
 
 

IF ONLY THESE PAGES COULD SPEAK

I love old books. Not so much because I like to read them all, but I feel that the book itself carry these stories of a more and more lost age. There are so much detail in the way it has been made and how they represent an non digitalized era. Some of the books uses fonts I can barely read, but they look so elegant and they make promises of a story worth reading. A torn binding can reveal a beautiful, old piece of paper, like it was a little hidden secret. They bear marks of all the people who have read and enjoyed the book and I wonder what stories it would tell, if only its pages could speak.
 
Have a beautiful day! /Annika
 
 

COLOR INSPIRATION

We are still busy organizing the new office, but when you are going through things, you always find inspiration and stuff you had forgotten about. Today I found this little pile of things I made into a color palette. These are some of my favorite colors and materials(twine, suede, mother of pearl, wood and vintage illustrations) at the moment. 
 
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday! /Annika

ORGANIZING OUR OFFICE

We are very busy organizing our new loft/creative space, so the posting has been a bit sparse this last week. We are looking forward to have the space needed for all our creative endeavors. Right now the space is nothing but chaos, but it's a fun project. We'll show pictures later. For now here is a bit of spring feeling. 
 
Have a great day! /Annika 
 
 

RENEWED LOVE

Tulips are beautiful flowers and I always get so happy when the first tulips are in store. Then after a while you see them everywhere and your start to feel a bit bored and want something else...a different flower, something new. But when I saw this combination of colors at my sisters work, my love for tulips just got renewed. This lime green color is so fresh and together with that delicate purple...well it feels like spring.
 
Have a wonderful Saturday! /Annika
 
 

THE SMELL OF SPRING

I think we all have certain things or get these little moments, where we are reminded of our childhood and fond memories. To me willow catkins are one of these things. When I see those fluffy buds I'm immediately thrown back to my childhood, where I walked home from school feeling and touching every twig that was blooming with these little soft ducklings (that's what we call them in Denmark). To me they are such a strong signal of spring being just around the corner, that I can almost smell it. What things triggers your memory?
 
Have a wonderful day! /Annika
