I'm a 29 year old freelancing illustrator living in Sweden. I have a little family of two dogs and a boyfriend, and spend most of my days drawing.
In addition to doing commission illustration work, I also run A Grape Design, where I sell products with my illustrations to people all over the world! I'm super grateful being able to work with what I love doing the most.

DIY Embellished Sunglasses
Recreate the look with Emmy's super easy embellished sunglasses tutorial:
I love how Zagreb is a big city but at the same time also very small. The centre is beautiful and full of people, yet you only need to go a bit out of the centre to enjoy nature and peace and quiet. There are many interesting museum worth visiting, lots of things happening throughout the year and many bars and restaurants with big terraces in the sun where you can spend your afternoons with your friends relaxing and chatting.
We head to Miami, Florida to tour Pat's gorgeous sewing studio.
Everything in my studio are my favorite things!! I love to be surround with things that I love, that is why I created my studio with so many things that I am fond of.

Kym from Bitty.and.Bunny recreates the quirky style of actress Zooey Deschanel:
I'm drawn to Zooey's style because it's full of bright cheery colors, cute skirts, and adorable accessories - all kissed with a hint of vintage. The self-proclaimed "Amish Hipster" knows how to command attention with her trendy, girly, even flirty style - all without showing a lot of skin. That takes skill. And to borrow a line from New Girl, the chick rocks a lot of polka dots. How can you not love that?

Laced Up Transparent Vinyl Tote Bag
Recreate the look with Christine's vinyl tote bag tutorial:
The people and the many attractions are awesome; even on a tight budget London is still a fun place to just walk around, especially if you hit up all the free entry museums and check out the art works.
We go behind the scenes at Tea Rose Home to tour Sachiko's sewing room in Provo, Utah.
This is very close to the dream sewing room I always imagined to have someday. First I love where it is located, which is on the main floor right off the living room. I can still be present for the kids, but I can close the French doors to get some privacy if I need to. I also love the hardwood floor, it is so easy to clean the sewing messes, and I can roll around the room in my chair.
When I need a bit more extra room, I can open up the French doors to use the hallway as part of the room as well.
