My lovely view while living my life here in Stockholm for some days…
The body and soul feels a little brighter and lighter today, and there’s some creative chaos going on. Like how to wrap gifts when you don’t have enough paper and not any left over kerchief? Well, you use the paper wrapped around new shoes, for example! And if you missed out on part I of my concept planning read it here.
I’m not one of those always bringing a gift, but I want to get better at it since I like to do it. To buy small things at thrift shops when I see something and my mind automatically thinks of someone who would love to get it. So that’s what I’ve done, plus buying some new things because I couldn’t resist, and I also brought a Gråblomst vinyl from home. The next three days I’ll give gifts to four amazing women and also a little something for everyone in a family of six which I’ll visit tomorrow (guess who?!) and also something for those who owns this apartment… Because they’re so kind with me 🙂
This table is where it all happens – gift wrapping, concept planning, blogging, reading, writing, eating, crying, you name it. And since I’m here all by myself my chaos lays around all the time, since it’s my home for only nine days. I hope I don’t end up doing the same “not tidying” when I get back home!
I were to share more of my concept planning, but it will be short, just always remember that my vision is to share and serve more. I thought part I was pretty good, and loooots of people were reading it, yay! There I gave you the structured part of my brain written down! You should read that part to understand part II since I won’t repeat what I’ve already written… So, I’ve worked more on my plan, but mainly I have thought of when to do what. And there are one big thing that will decide most of the timing and schedule: my new home.
As you know I will be living in our house for a little longer, and the house will be out for sale late April. Right now I don’t know when the new owners are to take over the house (obviously…), and I don’t have an exact date on my new apartment. They are to renovate it, and they’re in lack of carpenters… And do I need to say it keeps me awake sometimes?! Estimated date was 1st of June, but I can just say good bye to that date, I think.
Anyway, to be able to serve you a brunch club in the tower I need my apartment! To host workshops and retreats I need time to gather people to work with and plan it all, and get participants. Work like that takes months, so I will start to work on a collaboration around this very soon, hopefully!
But to start and share and serve more I can do this very second. I’m already at it, and my first step here will be a VIP letter where I give you some extra, something you can’t find anywhere else. More one-to-one, more possibilities, more of what you want and need basically. Also it will be free bees and competitions, topics and the possibility of signing up first when all this exciting stuff in my new concept is starting to happen.
Another thing I will start early summer is family photo sessions, and I’m about to find a family to test my concept on so I can show you what it’s all about. Really excited about that!
Music… Not many of my readers seem to be into music? Or the ones who are are very quiet! I don’t want to stop the music thing, and I will steer this ship on a very rough ocean myself, and I have no idea what it will end up like. More alternative is the route, but that’s all I know. I’ll spend a small amount of money to get what I need to record it all myself, and I do get some tricks in my sleeve, so I think I can do it. I think I will play around with that before I move out from the house.
Book and art collaboration as I mentioned in part I. Two projects which are very important to me, and I will work on it slowly in the months to come, not loosing the grip of it.
I feel calm about my new and “old” stuff going on, and it’s perfect to work on the time consuming planning while I live in the house alone (and with my daughter every other week, phew!). And when the apartment is ready, I am ready to pull of! And while I do all this planning I will start to send you my letters and reveal some secrets and special gifts and offers for you 😉
Also let me know if you want to live in my 85 square meter apartment in the middle of the town Hamar, Norway one week in October. I guess it’s hard to get someone to book long before the apartment is done, but maybe you are a little curious and think why not!? In that matter email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now there’s about five hours until I’m having dinner with three big inspirational sources of mine, and my self doubt has been knocking on my door today. Like – why would they meet me? Am I interesting enough, special enough? More about my self doubt and dinner later this week…
