About

From nothing to something

It's funny how everything started.

I was unemployed and unable to work in a another country than my homeland. Out of boredom I started making things. To me it didn't necessarily matter what it was I made or which materials I used. Looking back, I did it all. I started several projects all at once. One of these products were felted soaps. My mom had showed me how to make them months earlier after taking a course. I started making them and turned out all my friends wanted one. They had never seen this product before and fell in love with them just as much as I did. I was hooked.

After doing this for a while I felt the urge to go back to school. I fell upon this craft and design program back in Sweden and instantly realized it was what I was meant to do. I applied without hesitations, but naive as I was, I didn't actually think I'd get accepted. I did. It was a hard decision to make, moving back to Sweden and starting university, but I knew it was the right thing to do.

First day at school I knew I was in the right place. That is how my story begins. It's funny how I just knew this was what I was meant to do. The program happened to be everything I dreamt of and more and I'm more determined than ever to make a living out of making things.
