I started VillaPernilla and selling stuff I needed myself as a mum on Etsy.com and in a few shops and museum gift stores.
The biggest room upstairs became the VillaPernilla head quarter and sewing studio.
|Since this picture was taken I've repainted and bought new fittings and another table.|
My costume work picked up again and I'm actually having to turn down work at times. It is harder to say no to work than one can imagine. I worked for Skånes dansteater wich is Swedens largest independent dance institution pretty much all last autumn. Very nice work and very nice people to work with.The pictures are from a double bill called HAZE and it is now touring in Germany and then Norway.

I also do some tailoring and sewing jobs that people drop by with. Not sure why I do it but it seems nice to offer the service to people that live locally. Today I had a visit by a 80 year old man that came wading threw the snow to get his jeans turned up. He sat reading the local paper while we did the job.
Now I feel like things are ready to take to level two whatever that entails. In my head I have a dream version of what that is but I have to make one that will work when there is only 24 hours in a day and I'm a mum that lives about 60km from a desent shop.
So careful planning and internet shopping for supplies are key to make it work.
I would love my costume website to look great if you look at it using an I-pad or mobile.Oh and if I am making a wish list here I will add that blogs,websites,facebook pages etc could update themselfs.
So on that note I will finish my first 2012 entry and hope that there will be many more to come.
